• Enhanced cabin crew productivity with data protection and better passenger entertainment experiences with larger, portable, high resolution display


London, United Kingdom | November 19, 2014–
Mezzoglobal is pleased to make available to airlines and travel operators Samsung KNOX with the new Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2. With its large 12.2” display and high screen resolution, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro gives a better viewing experience than smaller 10” tablets, and is ideal for passenger use in both business and first class, as well as for cabin crew administration and customer service.

Mezzoglobal has been able to enhance the passenger entertainment experience with Samsung KNOX Customization and the new Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro. Through KNOX Customization, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro’s 12.2” high-resolution display provides passengers with an enhanced in-flight entertainment experience when viewing movies, television programmes, and other entertainment options on board, with all the content delivered on a secure mobile platform. The tablet is also slim and lightweight, which makes for the perfect passenger entertainment device, as well as making cabin storage easier and more efficient.

Says Dave Sampson, CEO of Mezzoglobal, “The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro is perfect for airlines, especially for those valuable business and first class passengers, and we’re already supplying it with our in-flight entertainment app to one airline.” He continues, “With its enhanced screen resolution, it delivers the best entertainment experience I’ve yet seen from a mobile device. It makes reading magazines, books and newspapers much easier and more comfortable, and gives truly remarkable movie and TV viewing.”

Sampson adds, “Security is critical for business deployment of mobile devices; Mezzoglobal started working with Samsung nearly three years ago and now we are using KNOX in apps when data needs the highest security. Mezzoglobal’s app protects the latest Hollywood movies for showing on mobile devices used on commercial airlines; Knox is a key pillar of our secure platform preventing unauthorised access and media piracy.”

Carl L. Nerup, VP of Global Sales for KNOX, at Samsung Electronics, says, “As a KNOX Customization partner, we have worked with Mezzoglobal to develop a number of their applications and mobile solutions for the travel industry. With the addition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro to its offerings, we know Mezzoglobal is well equipped to create the ultimate passenger experience, to deliver effective cabin crew solutions and to ultimately generate increased revenue and profit for our joint customers in the travel industry.”
