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.
Among the myriad of things that I learned at the recent WAEA/APEX conference in Long Beach, I learned a new phrase for what we as digEcor do. We are a provider of purpose built portable in-flight entertainment. I’ve used different phrases over the past few years to explain why we are different from many of our competitors. Now, the industry is apparently adopting the phrase “purpose built” to differentiate proprietary devices from consumer off-the-shelf (COTS) units.
