Pakistan International Airlines Selects digEplayer XT™ For Portable In-flight Entertainment Solution
SPRINGVILLE, Utah - September 12, 2006 - digEcor™ announced today that Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has chosen the digEplayer XT™ for their portable in-flight entertainment (IFE) solution. Delivery of the units is set for November.
PIA will be using the digEplayer XT's on their A310 and B777 aircraft.
The digEplayer XT is the latest generation of the award-winning digEplayer®, the world's first portable Audio/Video-On Demand IFE system. Like its predecessor, the digEplayer XT is preprogrammed with movies, television shows, cartoons, videos, music, and games, but also has an eight-inch TFT screen (30% more viewing area than a seven inch screen), built-in card swipe, and wireless technology. The digEplayer XT has a longer battery life and more content selection than any other player on the market.
Over 28 airlines have chosen the digEplayer. More airlines will announce their selection of the digEplayer soon.
"We are excited about the opportunity to launch the XT with PIA," said Brent Wood, CEO of digEcor. "Thanks to the cutting edge design, intuitive navigation and top of the line entertainment choices, the digEplayer will satisfy the demands of the most selective and savvy passengers. The digEplayer makes flying go by fast. Your passengers will not be bored."
Each digEplayer is about the same weight and size of a typical portable DVD player. Units contain a 60 gigabyte or larger hard drive and utilize the latest technology.
