Hamburg: Airline Services to equip Air Mauritius

Posted 9 April 2013 · Add Comment

Air Mauritius has placed a contract with Airline Services Ltd for the company's new enhanced definition digital video player - the Aerostream XP1.

The light-weight IFE system has been selected for their Airbus A330 and A340 fleet and installation of an initial 40 units will begin this year.

AeroStream XP1 is a new generation plug-and-play device designed and developed by ASL’s aviation engineers, primarily targeting the IFE retrofit market. 

The single channel AeroStream XP1, which is on show at ASL’s Stand at Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg this week  9-11 April, 2013, Stand No 5C35 enables airlines to cost-effectively upgrade their IFE system quickly and inexpensively, at a time when VHS video tapes are becoming obsolete and DVD players are out-dated. With up to 160GB memory the unit can store in excess of 25 films at a time (MPEG2).

The unit converts digital data into a composite signal for older generation IFE monitors.  The AeroStream XP1 has the capability to serve as a stand-alone unit or slave unit for multi-channel systems, and is small enough to fit into an overhead bin, weighing just 1.5kg.

Encrypted content updates are managed via a secure FTP data transfer interface, which is fully approved by all US Studios and distributors, including Disney, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros, Sony, Universal and Paramount for early window content.
