Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium, First to Fly digEplayer L7

SPRINGVILLE, Utah September 13, 2010 - Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium began flying digEplayer L7s in July of this year. The players, from purpose built handheld IFE leader digEcor, are available for rental on board of their Airbus A320’s medium haul flights (Egypt, Canary Islands & Jordan).

The digEplayer L7 features a 7 inch capacitive touch screen and optical mouse for easy menu navigation, which can be viewed in English, Dutch, or French. Taking advantage of digEcor’s in-house content services, passengers have their choice of Hollywood movies, some with French audio and Dutch sub-titles.

To increase passenger’s satisfaction with their on board services, Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium was keen to introduce a personal digital player. “After reviewing a selection of different providers, we were convinced that the digEplayer L7 would be the best option to obtain this level of satisfaction. Our passengers appreciate the design and functionality of the digEplayer and are delighted that they now can select the movie, television show and audio they desire”, said Patrick Lamonte, Technical Director of Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium.

“We appreciate the partnership that we have with Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium as our launch customer for the digEplayer L7. We’ve been able to make several minor improvements based on the initial feedback from passengers and flight attendants and expect passengers to continue to enjoy the newest product from our line of digEplayers,” explained Brad Heckel, President of digEcor.
