A project in partnership with Microsoft and a currently undisclosed Top-20 Airline to use the Aggregion platform for licensing and delivery of digital media content directly to the Airline’s mobile app.
Currently, all of the world’s airlines license media entertainment content through a very traditional paper-based process. It’s a hurdle. The media choice is limited only to what the airline was able to negotiate for a specific flight. And the media may only be used onboard the airplane, as the copyright holders have no control on how their content is used otherwise.
The current project is meant to augment the current onboard entertainment systems and provide the passengers with access to a wider selection of entertainment on their own devices and on any flight, through the Airline mobile app. The copyright holders, the Airline, and the Airline mobile app are all connected to the Aggregion ecosystem, enabling control and visibility of user’s usage and live usage statistics in multiple categories down to any level of detail. Copyright holders may easily specify and enforce any licensing parameters, which may be as specific as the flight routes, types of devices allowed, time periods, and so on.
