Panasonic’s Latest X Series System
Not all overhead IFE systems are created equal. With Panasonic’s large HD retracts, digital audio to the seats, near audio-on-demand and wireless support for passenger devices, eXO is the most innovative overhead solution available today. It is designed for maximum flexibility and supports a wide variety of cabin configurations including overhead video, wireless IFE and hybrid, cabin class-specific systems.
eXO is centered around a new 4 MCU single server unit head-end that supports cabin-wide, high definition broadcast overhead video, cabin-wide near audio-on-demand, high definition AVOD in premium classes and cabin-wide wireless content to passenger devices. It has 12.1-inch retract DOMs that supports 1080p HD video in widescreen format. It also features a new, smaller form factor audio passenger control unit (PCU) that offers new capabilities including capacitive touch and tactile feedback.
Revolutionizing the Passenger Experience
eXO is more than just overhead video and near audio-on-demand. It’s designed to work seamlessly with Panasonic’s wireless IFE to transform the in-cabin experience into a truly unique social environment. Passengers can use their own devices to connect to your unique inflight portal and enjoy second screen entertainment, be the DJ, interact with other passengers, and play games.
The superior HD resolution of eXO provides passengers with the same high quality video in the air that they enjoy every day in their home. The system also offers near audio-on-demand functionality that lets passengers skip or repeat audio tracks with the press of a button.
Maximum Business Value for Your Airline
eXO provides your airline with the ability to mix and match cabins based on your aircraft’s mission profile, your brand, and your desired class configurations. Because it uses the same backbone as other X Series systems, it supports hybrid installations such as audio/video-on-demand in the premium cabin with overhead video in the economy cabin. This architecture also provides a cost-effective path to reconfigure your cabin in the event your route strategy changes in the future.
As part of the X Series family, eXO provides a flexible business platform for revenue generation with applications including static shopping and advertising on the overhead system as well as dynamic shopping and advertising to passenger devices if integrated as part of a wireless cabin.
In addition, the system helps reduce your initial capital investment in IFE and also helps reduce your total cost of ownership with reductions in total LRU count, improved reliability retract mechanisms for the DOMs, long-lived spill-proof PCUs, and its standardized X Series architecture.
