A world-first: 360° live external stream
In partnership with IrisAero, a French provider of 360° 4K cameras for the airline industry, PXCom has developed PXVision, a 360° player dedicated to the InFlight Entertainment ecosystem, that also includes Interactive Augmented Reality experience.
“Our technical team has clearly achieved a great challenge”, says Cyril JEAN, PXCom’s CEO. “PXVision is aimed at providing passengers with a live 360° external video stream, and discover in real time the points of interests that the aircraft is flying over. Should the camera be mounted on the top of the aircraft, passengers will be offered to discover sky constellations for example. Based on this new inflight entertainment offering, we can now roll out so many business cases that will both elevate the Passengers’ Experience and drive ancillaries to the airlines”

Thanks to XPlore by PXCom, the entire GUI and its related contents can be dynamically managed by the airlines. This demonstrator also includes all the contents that can be found on a legacy IFE platform: movies, games, music, PXCom’s destination guides, digital press…
