Panasonic announces eXLite retrofit IFEC solution

Panasonic has announced its latest X Series solution – eXLite. Targeted at all aircraft types, eXLite is Panasonic’s lightest weight and lowest power X Series system. “We continue to see increasing demand for streamlined architectures that offer significant improvements in weight, power and cost,” said Paul Margis, CEO for Panasonic Avionics Corporation. “With eXLite, we now offer a retrofit solution that is very simple and cost-effective, yet still delivers an amazing passenger experience.”

eXLite uses Panasonic’s Eco series monitors, which enable capacitive touch, proximity sensors, and next-generation processors. Depending on the configuration, the system can weigh as little as 3.2 lbs per passenger seat. Like all Panasonic X Series solutions, eXLite features a flexible architecture that lets airlines customise the passenger experience by cabin class. eXLite is currently offered to the retrofit market, but Panasonic will continue to work with airframe manufacturers on line-fit offerability.
