digEcor’s New Portable IFE Solution Helps Shape Future of AVOD for Passengers


AIX Hamburg, Germany | April 14, 2015– The highly anticipated next-generation digEplayer NV by digEcor has arrived and it delivers on style, usability, functionality and affordability.

The new series NV is the only portable AVOD solution encompassing both the practical features of a custom device and the contemporary look and feel of a consumer tablet at a lower total cost of ownership. It is available in 8, 10, and 12″ versions.

The NV is approved for early window content from all major studios and independent distributors and features enhanced high definition screens, faster processing power, seamless capacitive touch and fully accelerated graphics. I has either a Linux or Android operating system, which support motion/gesture games and allow for easy integration of applications and new media including fully customisable GUIs to generate ancillary revenues and branding opportunities.

“digEcor continues to lead the portable AVOD handheld market with the introduction of the NV series,” said digEcor CEO David Withers.

“We are committed to ongoing innovation in this space and are pleased to offer such wide-ranging enhancements for the digEplayer NV,” he said. “The players are guaranteed to delight passengers with ease-of-use and entertaining content and delight airlines with practical and affordable factors.”

Other features of the new digEplayer NV include an integrated stand mounted directly to a metal chassis, reinforced dual headphone jacks, up to 1TB of SSD storage, USB power and gigabyte Ethernet content loading. The device also supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. As with previous digEplayers the battery is changeable so you don’t have to take a player out of service just to charge a battery.

“We have over 10 years designing, manufacturing and operating tens of thousands of portable media players in an airline environment and we’ve studied the failure modes and airline hurt points and designed them out of the NV series,” said Withers. ” We are very proud of our fifth generation digEplayer.”

Content is updated via a content update rack using gigabit Ethernet or by swapping optional SD cards. Smart status battery charging and batteries offering either 12hr or 18 hr life are available.

The digEplayer NV is a leading component of digEcor’s Integrated Flight Experience, a low-cost, flexible solution for airlines to improve customer experiences across all areas of its inflight service including entertainment, power, lighting and crew and passenger connectivity.
