At the Aircraft Interiors Expo this year Bluebox Avionics introduces an exciting new addition to its range of innovative portable and wifi IFE solutions.

Bluebox Walk-on wIFE is a simple and inexpensive first step to introducing superb wireless streamed content to passengers in any aircraft cabin.

Before we talk about all the positives Bluebox Wow delivers, let’s start with the negatives:

  • No long lead time required
  • No cabin installation costs
  • No passenger app required

Despite its remarkably low cost of ownership and ease of deployment Bluebox Wow delivers a flexible wireless capability supporting streamed video and audio content, games, digital publications and our new Seat2Seat networked messaging application. All that in a discrete unit about the size of the average lunchbox.

Why Walk-on wIFE?

For ultimate flexibility, Wow is a lightweight, portable product that can be taken onboard fully loaded, fully charged and ready to go. It’s easy to switch between aircraft as needed, and scalable from the smallest business or regional aircraft to the largest cabin deployments by simply utilising multiple Bluebox Wow units.

Bluebox Wow supports free-to-seat and pay-for-access commercial models, and again it’s simple to switch between them.

Our tried and tested high quality battery typically lasts up to 15 hours supporting up to 50 devices simultaneously. For even greater flexibility the rechargeable battery is easy to replace in flight turnaround, ensuring service continuity for even the longest sectors.

But does it deliver Early Window Content?

For an enhanced entertainment option Bluebox Wow interfaces seamlessly with our Bluebox Hybrid (iPad) units, which are approved by Hollywood studios to host pre-loaded EWC movies and enable access to streamed content. So while Bluebox Wow reaches all personal devices, airlines can offer a superior service proposition to premium passengers or generate ancillary revenue from onboard iPad rental.

Stand-alone or Hybrid, Bluebox Walk-on wiFE delivers fantastic value, flexibility and a great way to quickly introduce IFE for the first time.

A part of your IFE Evolution

Following a typical six months’ successful deployment of Bluebox Wow, and a proven business case, we recommend you consider upgrading to the fully installed Bluebox wiFE streaming solution. The additional benefits of our fitted system include enhanced performance, a wider choice of content options and extra operational features.
