Always anxious to get feedback from actual digEplayer users, I headed to a local farmers market with a camera guy and walked around handing the digEplayer L7 to random people. The video below captures the candid and honest comments from users.
I was curious to see just how the industry (at least those using Twitter) responded to the 2011 Airline Passenger Experience Annual Conference and Exhibition last week. So I spent a little time analyzing the sentiment of tweets that used key phrases and hashtags.
Last week was the annual APEX Conference and Exhibition. And on more than one occasion, I was asked to talk about consumer-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions versus purpose-built PMPS (like the digEplayer L7). Recently, more suppliers have come out offering re-purposed tablet devices - namely the iPad and not the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
It feels that of late, the number of alternatives has grown substantially in both variety and number. When we started in this industry, we had pretty much only one question to address, “Why handheld over embedded?” Now, that question has been expanded to cover a myriad of possibilities including consumer electronics.
“It might sound snobby, especially coming from a perpetual economy cabin patron, but the absolute most deflating thing to see when squeezing down the tight airplane aisles and shoving my carry-on into the cramped overhead bins is a 12-inch TV hanging from the ceiling.”
How does content loading work? Not only were we asked this question frequently at the show, but this is usually one of the first questions to come up with any prospective customer.
I’m sure that you have read all kinds of articles and posts about the trends and buzz that came out of the Aircraft Interiors Expo several weeks ago. Though, I want to give you the perspective of a vendor, what we experienced as common questions from airlines, and address some of the hot topics.
