Mezzoglobal has released a new airline IFE product: the Samsung KNOX, a customized 12.2in Galaxy Tab Pro, for business and first class passenger use, as well as for cabin crew administration and customer service.
Dave Sampson, CEO of Mezzoglobal explained, “The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro is perfect for airlines, especially for those valuable business and first class passengers, and we’re already supplying it with our in-flight entertainment app to one airline. With its enhanced screen resolution, it delivers the best entertainment experience I’ve yet seen from a mobile device. It makes reading magazines, books and newspapers much easier and more comfortable, and gives truly remarkable movie and TV viewing.”
He added, “Security is critical for business deployment of mobile devices; Mezzoglobal started working with Samsung nearly three years ago and now we are using KNOX in apps when data needs the highest security. Mezzoglobal’s app protects the latest Hollywood movies for showing on mobile devices used on commercial airlines; Knox is a key pillar of our secure platform preventing unauthorised access and media piracy.”
Carl L. Nerup, VP of global sales for KNOX at Samsung Electronics, stated, “As a KNOX Customization partner, we have worked with Mezzoglobal to develop a number of their applications and mobile solutions for the travel industry. With the addition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro to its offerings, we know Mezzoglobal is well equipped to create the ultimate passenger experience, to deliver effective cabin crew solutions and to ultimately generate increased revenue and profit for our joint customers in the travel industry.”
