Evolution of IFES


The Evolution of IFE


From the very first instance of a movie delivered on-board an aircraft almost a 100 years back, IFE systems have evolved from projectors to full-fledged systems with personalized entertainment, destination services, high-speed connectivity and much more, delivered through seatback or personal devices.

Innovation has been a key driver behind the IFE growth. IFE systems are now also becoming a new source of ancillary revenues, and standardization in service and delivery along with data centricity will bring airplane closer to the ground even in the air.

Here’s the history of IFE in aviation and how the system has evolved over the years through a timeline.
