Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 16, 2011
InTheAirNet (ITAN) today introduced MAPP WAPP, its new Android-based system for wirelessly distributing the industry's most popular map for the last five years to airline passengers' personal entertainment devices (PEDs).
MAPP WAPP is a stand-alone, low-cost delivery system perfectly suited to replacing older systems used in thousands of aircraft in exiting fleets. Because it delivers maps directly to PEDs, it eliminates the need for dropdowns, seatback screens or multiple bulkheads, resulting in significant cost savings for airlines.
The MAPP WAPP system can also store movies, audio, and other Android applications that can be distributed through the new a-series ARM system, which InTheAirNet also unveiled at this week's APEX event.
Giving passengers what they have come to expect from ITAN's best-selling distributed cabin systems, MAPP WAPP provides superior satellite imagery, and at lower cost, than competitors' new and older offerings.
“With MAPP WAPP, InTheAirNet has harnessed the power of Android to create a platform that combines power, communication and on-board media to support all of the passenger's PED needs,” said Michael Rogerson, ITAN chairman.
Demonstrations of MAPP WAPP will be available at ITAN's exhibit during the APEX 2011 Expo in Seattle Sept. 13-15.
InTheAirNet is a global supplier of IFE cabin distribution systems, developed through innovation, for passenger and business/VIP aircraft with advanced electronics, unique software applications, and leading system solutions.
