PARIS, 22nd June 2011 - Singapore based Flight Focus and Malaysia based Tune Box (a subsidiary of the Tune Group) today announced a strategic partnership for Flight Focus to provide technology for Tune Box's low-cost In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) solution.

The Tune Box IFE platform will allow airline passengers to stream video and audio to personal devices using WiFi technology. Passengers will be able to enjoy thousands of movies, television and audio titles from an extensive onboard library using their own laptop, tablet, smartphone or PDA by paying for it on demand from the comfort of their seats.

In this partnership, Flight Focus provides the hardware and engineering, leveraging on their Electronic Flight Bag, the 'Flight Focus PLATFORM™'; this revolutionary global solution is the first time EFB technology has been used to create a unique cabin-based customer experience.

"Our customers will benefit from the combination of Flight Focus' and Tune Box's leading technology and services, which will in turn allow them to offer a new and invaluable IFE experience to their passengers. This partnership provides us with a great opportunity to further extend our reach to airlines worldwide with a new way of thinking for In-Flight Entertainment. Together with the existing option of offering low-cost GSM SMS services to the passengers at an unprecedented low price, this is a true example of hour the Flight Focus PLATFORM™ goes beyond the perception of a traditional EFB and provides a natural, scalable solution to a new generation of certified onboard services" said Ralf Cabos, Managing Director of Flight Focus.

Sami El Hadery, co-founder of Tune Box and the company's Chief Technical Officer, said "We are extremely excited about the Tune Box IFE system. By using wireless streaming technology to deliver content to Passenger Electronic Devices, we will be able to offer an IFE product that will be far more affordable for airlines to own and operate than traditional systems. The partnership with Flight Focus is a testament to our confidence in the Flight Focus PLATFORM™. We are looking forward to jointly developing and bringing to market the Tune Box IFE system, which we feel will revolutionise In-Flight Entertainment".
