100th installation of Zodiac Inflight Innovations’ RAVE Centric IFE
Zodiac Inflight Innovations is celebrating the 100th installation of RAVE™ Centric, its embedded AVOD IFE system.
The milestone was reached when RAVE™ Centric went into service on its 100th aircraft today.
RAVE™ Centric is qualified to Airbus, Boeing and DO-160 requirements. It is a lightweight modular system, providing airlines with a wide range of choices about what they offer passengers in each cabin. Airlines have a range of choices from screen size to passenger control units and customizable jacks that can be arranged with various audio jack configurations and USB charging ports.
RAVE™ IFE provides passengers with app-based browsing for on-demand movies, TV shows, music, radio and a moving map. Capacitive touch, high resolution (HD) screens are embedded in the seats and the intuitive Graphical User Interface mirrors what most are familiar with on their smartphones and tablets. The integrated USB charger can be used to power personal electronic devices, and the screen includes an audio jack for headphones.
“RAVE is going from strength to strength,” said Harry Gray, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Zodiac Inflight Innovations. “We are expanding our market share rapidly with more new airline customer announcements soon. The addition of connectivity, the result of our acquisition of TriaGnoSys, means we can provide all the technology an airline needs for the complete IFEC offering, putting us in an incredibly strong position to continue our growth trajectory.”
As RAVE™ Centric is the embedded IFE system, it is modular with its offering of customizable elements. RAVE™ Wireless enables the wireless streaming of IFE content to passengers’ own personal electronic devices while RAVE™ Cellular and RAVE™ Broadband provide GSM and Wi-Fi connectivity.
RAVE™ Centric was first introduced in 2008 and is now flying on 23 airlines around the world.
