Axinom brings Live TV to Aircraft
At Aircraft Interiors Expo 2018 in Hamburg, Axinom will introduce the solution for Live TV to Aircraft, developed as a unique concept on the aviation market that provides high-quality live streaming experience on-board of an aircraft.
Under this approach, Axinom presents its smart traffic management technology as a way to optimize satellite bandwidth consumption of on-board Live TV, solving the challenging task of bringing live streaming to the passengers’ fingertips. By embracing this approach, customers will bring the most exciting aspects of in-flight entertainment on-board and give their passengers the possibility to live stream favourite tennis tournaments or watch favourite TV channels directly from their airplane seat. Axinom’s technology allows handling of multiple live channels at the same time and allows content protection using DRM.

Digital Platforms built on Axinom for the Aerospace market
All Axinom products expose a comprehensive API which enables providers to build their own solutions on top and to interact with 3rd party systems (ERP, recommendation engines, content provider and post production studios).
Using Axinom’s set of products service providers can significantly reduce the cost of service with optimized workflows for content management and delivery:
Axinom VIP (Video Ingest and Processing) is a video ingest and processing aimed to bring a faster content approval by content providers, speed up the content updates, significantly reduce technical challenges related to content preparation and distribution, and allow faster time to market with reduced costs. It allows content providers to update their premium content in a matter of hours with reduced costs. Customers can integrate VIP into their existing workflows with VIP on-premises or rely fully on managed VIP cloud deployment to get premium content faster, safer and easier into their passenger’s hands.
Axinom CMS (Content Management System) is based on Axinom’s innovative workflow engine which ensures secure and scalable handling of all types of content items (movies, live streams and other media content types, advertising, customer data, products, payment transactions, statistics, fleets, software updates etc.) and services while supporting delivery to different client platforms (Web browsers and mobile applications for smartphones and tablets on all client OS platforms including Windows, iOS, and Android).
Axinom CDS (Content Delivery System) allows incremental, secure, and robust bidirectional content synchronization using standardized communication protocols and mediums such as Cellular 3G / 4G, wireless Access, satellite, and physical storage devices like USB and SSD. Axinom CDS does not depend on permanent internet connection allowing disconnected synchronization scenarios.
Axinom DRM (Digital Rights Management) enables customers to target a wide range of client OS platforms with a single service by simultaneously supporting multiple DRM technologies. It is the first multi-DRM product that can operate in a disconnected fashion enabling premium video on board of the aircraft.
Axinom IFS (In-Flight Services) functions as a software component of an IFEC system, querying, filtering, veryfing access and streaming the content to the client applications on passengers’ devices. Through Axinom IFS as a middleware, client apps receive different types of content, such as VOD content libraries, Live TV channels, advertisements, payment gateways and merchant information, monetization and reporting content, information on the content sychronization, software maintenance and updates and more.
