Panasonic has launched its NEXTTM inflight entertainment and communications (IFEC) platform – the company's newest IFEC solution.

The NEXT platform is designed to help airlines overcome key challenges by transforming typically rigid entertainment systems into a flexible IFEC platform. Panasonic is introducing a scalable IFEC solution with the NEXT platform, which blends the latest in inflight entertainment technology, connectivity services, and consumer technologies to help airlines reach their business objectives. The company said the approach helps airlines maximise their investment by dramatically extending the lifespan of the IFEC platform.

Hideo Nakano, chief executive officer of Panasonic Avionics Corporation, said: “This launch ia about a new way of doing business. The NEXT IFEC solution is a business platform that has been built to respond to the trends and challenges that airlines face. It is about innovating with purpose to create a bespoke offering that is aligned with our customers’ business models, increasing their efficiency and enhancing their inflight experience.”

Nakano added: “The value of the NEXT platform is greater than the sum of its parts. Our global connectivity network, weather services, and maintenance organisation are all key examples of how our services and products have evolved into an integrated ecosystem that will exponentially increase the value the NEXT platform delivers to airlines and their passengers.”
