We pioneered the handheld IFE industry in 2003 when Bill Boyer, a baggage handler at Alaska Airlines, decided to take entertainment into his own hands.
In 2004, the digEplayer 5500 won IFE Product of the Year at the IPEC Inflight Online Awards Dinner. Brendan Gallgher presented the award. We miss Badger.
The Big Move
Then APS was purchased, renamed digEcor and moved to Springville, UT, where the headquarters are still located with satellite locations worldwide.
A New Generation
In 2008, the digEplayer XT, and later the XLP, was released. Despite new industry entrants, research firm Frost & Sullivan named us market leaders.
The Touch Revolution
Partnering with China based Lefeel Media Tech, we created the L Series in 2010 featuring overhauled software, an improved GUI and a touch screen.
Over the last few years, we’ve worked with our partners to create a seat back system that is low weight and fully scalable.
What's to Come?
We have big plans and projects that we are currently working on. We hope to be a part of your future and you ours.
"The portable concept created a whole industry of handheld IFE devices manufactured by several companies. Although consumer tablets are now being used in IFE as well, digEcor remains the industry leader in the airline marketplace."
