TRANSFORMING THE PASSENGER EXPERIENCE WITH IFEC
In-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) is expected to be one of the key drivers of innovation at EBACE Geneva and Aircraft Interiors Expo 2022. The pandemic accelerated the shift to digital, so business aviation but also airlines are innovating to support passenger-supplied devices, offering more IFE technology and streaming options.
Among the companies exhibiting at these two aerospace trade shows is Airmont. Recognising the heightened demand for streaming and the need to be fully connected throughout the flight, we proudly showcase our Streaming Optimization service."
DEPUTY MINISTER OF INDUSRTY VISITS AIRMONT
Accepting the invitation of MP Naima Moutchou (LREM), Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Deputy Minister in charge of Industry, visited Airmont.
"We know how to undertake innovation in France but it is more difficult to support growth. The temptation for the big market players is to buy this type of solution, warns Agnès Pannier-Runacher, before welcoming the approach of this young company. Airmont embodies these very high-growth companies, with technological solutions that you might think belong only to the Chinese or the Americans. "
MP for the fourth year of Val-d'Oise, Naïma Moutchou (LREM) is pleased to welcome "start-ups" who "serve as examples for other companies in the area" and hopes that Airmont will have "recruitment opportunities eventually.Read Article

AIRMONT IS GRANTED US PATENT
Airmont Datacast has been awarded patent number US11,115,449B2 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The patent, titled “DATA CASTING” represents a cornerstone of our technology aimed at making passengers’ streaming a reality on aircrafts, ships, trains and for travellers.
The invention focuses at transparently optimizing video streaming experience of passengers by relying on the popular "cast" icon user interface of the passengers's streaming apps. It is particularly beneficial to drastically reduce cost of streaming over expensive internet connections like VSAT and HTS satellite links.
Without Airmont patented technology, the video streams over the aircraft's internet connections. "Our invention came when we had realized that video is taking 70% of total internet bandwidth and a single stream requires an average 3 Mbps connection for a fluid streaming experience. By letting the user to "cast" his content to the on-board monitor of an equipped vehicle, we can reduce by 10 the actual required bandwidth saving satellite spectrum and allowing many more simultaneous users. It is so transparent that the user does not even need to install an app; all is making use of native streaming apps "cast" functionality.
This patent will give our customers the ability to build a true profitable business case while enabling the highly desirable personal streaming experience on-board." - said Jean-François Gault, VP of Airmont.
NEW TECH MAY MAKING STREAMING NETFLIX ON PRIVATE JETS EASIER
With all the luxury features and amenities available on a private jet, you would think having access to stream your favorite shows and movies on Netflix, would not be a problem. However, you might be surprised to find out that reliable video streaming is not always a given on private aircraft.
AIRMONT-CAST AIMS TO REVOLUTIONIZE VIDEO STREAMING ON BIZJETS
Streaming Netflix on a business jet via the latest satellite connectivity links is entirely possible, but it doesn’t necessarily make for cheap moviegoing. Add in the simultaneous broadband Internet requirements of other passengers on board and there’s a chance that someone will need to compromise or accept a reduced standard. Watching movies at a reduced quality is hardly an acceptable compromise if you’re paying big bucks for said connectivity service.

COMPRESSED TO IMPRESS
The patented Airmont-Cast feature, which is already flying on business aircrafts, provides a highly compressed, seamless feed of personal streaming content to business aircraft passengers without eating up large alounts of bandwidth.
We are “the only one” offering a service that compresses streamed content in this way. It enables passengers to dislay their own live streaming content on onboard TV sets or their own devices in a way that uses “five to 50 times less bandwith” than consuming such content without the solution. Airmont-Cast technology is available either as a service with a monthly subscription or as a one-off acquisition.
