Lufthansa Technik's niceview[TM] infotainment system wins Crystal Cabin Award 2009

At Aircraft Interiors Expo, the world's largest trade exhibition for aircraft interior design and systems engineering, niceview[TM], Lufthansa Technik's latest innovation in the field of infotainment, has won the Crystal Cabin Award 2009 in the category "Entertainment and Communication".

niceview[TM], a new passenger flight information and moving map system, provides worldwide high-resolution 3-D maps and virtual flight views as well as a multitude of informative screens. The system utilizes the latest 3-D rendering technologies and offers a vast choice of data options compared to previous generations of moving map and in-flight information systems. niceview's unique capabilities have created strong interest from commercial airlines and business jet customers. A first contract with an undisclosed airline customer has already been signed and first deliveries have taken place.

With niceview[TM], passengers will not only be enjoying in-flight entertainment, but will also stay informed about their entire journey. Every passenger can experience a virtual 3-D view from a window seat or from the cockpit, no matter if it is day or night and independent of any weather condition. Destination and airport information, such as connecting flights and weather conditions, can be uploaded during flight. Information data can be presented as overlays, including ticker or banner views. Additionally, niceview[TM] is able to show pictures, movies, and multi-channel audio. High Definition Video Output (HDTV) ensures first-rate video quality.

Additionally, safety briefings, language translations and geographical or geopolitical data can be integrated. Due to niceview´s broad spectrum of automatically triggered information features, the cabin crew will be able to fully concentrate on taking care of the passengers.

niceview[TM] comes with an easy to use PC-based system management application, which enables airlines to make extensive system configurations independently. The changes can be uploaded to the on-board system via USB or Ethernet connections.

Lufthansa Technik's business unit Innovation has established a niceview[TM] customer care call and technical support center for technical and maintenance support. With the help of a niceview[TM] system mock-up the support team can troubleshoot specific customer configurations while speaking directly to the aircraft operator.

In 2008 Lufthansa Technik already received the Crystal Cabin Award in the 'material and components' category. Its qualified product innovation, the UHF RFID (ultra high frequency radio frequency identification) transponder, has been one of the first RFID applications facing the high technical demands encountered in aviation.
