Software & Applications

Panasonic Avionics’ software and applications bring together personalization, revenue generation, connectivity, and content in an open source technology environment that transform our inflight entertainment and communications (IFEC) solutions into robust, scalable, high-performance business platforms that leverage best-in-class features and functions to deliver an amazing inflight passenger experience, and add value that positively and tangibly impacts the airline’s key metrics.

Games

From the most popular mobile games to high-end 3D graphics and multi-player support, Panasonic offers the industry’s broadest selection of next-generation video games. With over 200 titles, passengers can enjoy a wide variety of genres including sports, racing, action, real-time strategy, and role-playing games on the seatback or on their own personal electronic device. Passengers can play solo, or connect with others to enjoy a multi-player game.

Panasonic Applications

Panasonic has developed an extensive portfolio of applications that engage and delight passengers, as well as add business value to the airline.

Airlines have a choice of a wide variety of applications that can provide the right solutions for their passengers and services. Applications range from Live Text News, which provides timely news updates and weather information, and ConnectingGate, which features gate and airport information for passenger connections, to Moving Maps, which provides comprehensive geographic views of the flight path, and crew applications such as Crew Forms, which reduces and streamlines operations and communication.

Other applications support ancillary revenue streams and brand value. Onboard Shopping, Onboard Hospitality and Pay Per View provides browsing and purchasing of merchandise, snacks, drinks, food, and movies. Usage reporting and surveys are also available for measuring the system and the content that is available to the passenger.

Panasonic’s Open Platform Architecture

Our open platform architecture facilitates faster, easier application development, integration, and deployment, enabling airlines to generate additional revenue and streamline operations. From popular games to shopping and social networking through our platform, airlines can leverage the vast network of developers to quickly bring an application from idea to onboard, or develop and deploy their own. Panasonic utilizes the latest technological advancements in open platform architecture to empower airlines with a competitive toolset to increase brand recognition, promote customer satisfaction, and reduce operating costs.

Today, Panasonic ships AndroidTM compatible devices. We are currently building an ecosystem of developers and supplying them with software development kits that include a rack simulator, example code, developer tools and a rich application programming interface (API) to enable fast application creation and guaranteed performance on our X Series IFEC solutions. Our vision is to host a rapidly growing application store that will offer thousands of unique application for the lowest possible cost. With an open platform architecture, airlines will be able to quickly and efficiently add content such as games to their inflight entertainment experience, saving time and eliminating additional software development costs.

We are also using open platform architectures to ensure seamless device integration into the embedded IFEC solution. This enables passengers to use their own personal devices to control their seat, the lighting, navigate the interactive, and even create a second screen environment during their flight.

eXCite 2 Interactive

Panasonic’s eXCite 2 user interactive enables the airline to create rich and dynamic graphical interfaces, tailored to their brand, with a common look and feel across in-seat monitors and passenger electronic devices. eXCite 2 also supports a comprehensive toolset that streamlines the process. Content or configurations can be dynamically updated, including changes to color themes, buttons and more.
