First European customer for digEcor GLIDE IFE


December 4, 2015 – A new customer has been announced for digEcor’s GLIDE embedded IFE system; charter airline EuroAtlantic Airways, based in Lisbon, Portugal, will be flying the system in both economy and business class on three of its B767 aircraft.

In business class, the Thompson Vantage seats will house 15in IFE touchscreens, as well as digEcor’s own 110 volt and 2.1A USB in-seat power units, with an outlet for every seat via a single seat box. In economy class the offering includes 10in touchscreens and USB power at each of the Acro seats.

Cabin crew control the system via a cabin management terminal, which also interfaces with the major aircraft systems and enables maintenance data to be offloaded and IFE content to be uploaded via a cellular network. Content can also be loaded by changing the master content drive in the cabin management terminal or via USB.

digEcor will also retrofit the Passenger Service System (PSS) in the seats and overhead passenger service unit using its Universal Seat Box.

The GLIDE system was FAA certified earlier in 2015 and is currently flying with Air Transport International (ATI), which installed digEcor’s 7in embedded touchscreens with USB and PC power in its B757s.
