Garuda Indonesia Selects the digEplayerXT for 747-400

SPRINGVILLE, Utah - One of the leading flag carriers in Asia, Garuda Indonesia, has selected the digEplayerXT as the primary IFE system for premium class passengers on its Boeing B747-400 aircraft. The aircraft operate on long-haul routes to Jeddah and Narita.

Garuda's decision to select the XT, among other offerings from IMS and Panasonic, was based on a number of factors. For example, the superior quality and robustness of the XT outperformed its competitors. Additionally, the XT with its elegant, sleek, and aesthetic appearance adds a certain level of sophistication that satisfied the demand of Garuda's premium class passengers. Also, content is tailored to suit Garuda's specific routes.

Garuda is one of digEcor's TES (Total Entertainment Solutions) customers. Meaning, digEcor handles ALL facets of Garuda's PMP operation from supply of equipment to content and logistics services locally in Jakarta. Garuda successfully launched it's PMP program on 3-Jan-08 and works with a local team set up by digEcor to handle all the provisioning logistics such as delivering players to the gate, cleaning, charging batteries, uploading content, etc.

Most recently, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, President of Indonesia, flew on one of the B747's equipped with the digEplayerXT. Garuda's Vice President of Service Delivery remarked, "The President was suitably impressed not only by the quality of the product but by the content selection available to him."

Garuda is currently evaluating the option of adding the digEplayerXT to their B737-800NG aircraft as supplementary IFE for premium class passengers.
