Abstract

In-flight entertainment (IFE) systems are one of the features of a business aircraft to keep the passengers happy and satisfied. Currently available IFE systems provide recorded media content, weather information, and live news, among others. Media equipment of the IFE have a very fast update cycle and aircraft sound systems should be integrated with it by requirement. Passengers in the business aircraft prefer viewing or listening to their choice of video and audio using their carry-on devices (mobile phones, tablets and laptops). Carry-on devices provide content that the latest media equipment can provide, and instead of updating the media equipment, a feature to cast or stream of the audio and video content from the carry-on devices wirelessly to the IFE systems will suffice. The proposed solution provides a device that has a wireless input feature for passengers to cast or stream audio and video content from the carry-on devices wirelessly to the IFE systems.
