Handheld In-flight Entertainment

Kenya Airways returns to digEcor with the launch of the digEplayer L10

SPRINGVILLE, Utah March 28, 2012 – digEcor has secured a second digEplayer L10 client – Kenya Airways (KQ). Launching in early June, passengers on KQ’s B767 flying to Paris, London, Rome, Dubai, Bangkok, Mumbai and other destinations will enjoy digEcor’s newest and premium entertainment solution.

Kenya Airways was an early and staunch digEcor customer from 2005 to 2010 and flew the award winning digEplayer 5500. After a brief gap, KQ is returning to digEcor with this new launch.

The L10, a handheld IFE device, offers an 18+ hour battery, 10 inch screen, Gigabit Ethernet port for fast content loads and a capacitive touch screen. Using the dedicated content update station, 80 L10s can be simultaneously loaded with new content from a single server. The digEplayer L10 is also DO-160 emissions compliant.

To accommodate KQ’s passenger diversity on the various routes flown by their B767, the movie selection will include Hollywood, Hindi and African movies, in addition to television programming, music, music videos and games. The L10 will be offered for free to Business Class passengers.

“Why invent a solution when one already exists? The digEplayer 5500 worked so well for KQ that we are confident that the new digEplayer L10 will perform even better,” commented Owino Obonyo, Manager of Services Procurement for Kenya Airways.

“We are very excited to welcome Kenya Airways back to the digEcor family of customers and look forward to serving ‘The Pride of Africa,’” added digEcor Marketing Director Adam Williams.
