Since 1997 Images in Motion has been privileged to entertain passengers travelling on the world’s leading airlines. As the most experienced inflight content service provider in Asia our expertise extends from content acquisition and distribution to licensing and quality technical services. Our core business is built on decades of experience and driven by our mission to be creative and innovative; leading the region in all that we do.
We have devised and patented an innovative signaling server technology that allows multicast streaming onboard without the need to install additional hardware and/or implement new software. Our solution has the ability to multicast encoded Live TV broadcast feeds in such a way that the onboard WiFi reception only takes in a single feed per channel, which all passengers can use simultaneously. This yields a bandwidth and data saving of between 75% – 90% which removes the main cost barrier to entry into the market and makes Live TV streaming instantly affordable for every airline.
Much has been written about the merits of airlines adopting a free-of-charge model for their passenger inflight broadband offerings in recent months, with an Inmarsat white paper suggesting such a move could lead to take-up rates of between 30-40%
