KID-Systeme's wireless content streaming platform selected for the Embraer E-Jet family

KID-Systeme’s SKYfi Club — a wireless streaming onboard platform for passenger and corporate aircraft — has been selected by Embraer as the catalogue linefit option for the OEM’s E-Jets E2 Program. Airline customers are able to choose KID-Systeme’s streaming solution on aircraft types E195-E2, E190-E2 and E175-E2. The hardware will be offered by Embraer and customized software solutions will be provided by KID-Systeme.

The E-Jets E2s, consisting of three aircraft types, are entering the market as the second generation of the Embraer E-jet family

SKYfi Club streams content to passengers’ personal electronic devices, allowing them to access the available entertainment options, such as movies, e-books and magazines. The technology is based on the trusted ALNA (Airline Network Architecture) connectivity platform, which flies on more than 650 aircraft to date. The mature system provides a scalable and modular architecture that is adaptable to customer need. It enables a wide range of additional services such as GSM telephony, internet access and data services. In addition, SKYfi can be complemented by SKYpower, KID-Systeme’s in-seat power and cabin power management system.

“KID-Systeme is honored and delighted about this selection," says Peter Schetschine, Managing Director of KID-Systeme. "It is a recognition for our continuous striving for value adding innovations, high quality products and first class customer service.”
