Do you like to know where you are going and how you got there? A truly innovative in-flight infotainment system can make a huge difference for your flight experience. The niceview™ moving map system provides worldwide, high-resolution 3-D maps and virtual flights designed to create the ultimate flight information and viewing experience. New and unique features keep you informed and help to create an enjoyable infotainment experience throughout the entire flight.
All views can be witnessed in life-like 3-D views with configurable virtual camera positions around the aircraft. The appearance of the flight track lines can be customized, e.g. with a customer logo.
The Total Route view with flight track line, departure and destination airport can be shown in 2-D or 3-D. Also, any data received by niceview™ from aircraft systems can be configured to be shown on aircraft displays.
niceview™ allows passengers to experience the same views as the pilot, even during take-off and landing phases. Simultaneous informational overlays can be displayed to illustrate the surroundings of the current aircraft position or to show the latest news.
For all views, customizable ticker tapes and banners are available for the simultaneous presentation of flight related data, predefined text messages or current news. Even time and date based scripting is possible, e.g. for pictures and information videos
With niceview™ everyone on board can experience the view from a window seat and encounter breathtaking scenes – no matter if it is day or night and independent of any weather conditions. Cabin windows can be displayed with or without aircraft structure such as wings and engines.
Depending on your hardware selection niceview™ provides various audio and video interfaces to the IFE system. Beside standard definition video signals (NTSC/PAL) also high definition video output (HDTV) is available. Additionally niceview™ is capable of MPEG audio and video streaming to digital IFE environments. To support multi-channel and multi-language content niceview™ provides up to 4 mono audio channels. Alternatively, 2 stereo audio channels and 2 digital S/PDIF channels can be operated.
The global standard resolution of 120 meters per pixel (mpP) allows staggering 3-D animations during cruise flight. For regional coverage 15 mpP data is available for any place in the world, allowing even more impressive details. For departure and approach, imagery resolution of 1 mpP can be provided for customer selected areas such as airports and cities.
niceview™ can be customized for you with a system management application. This flexible tool enables Lufthansa Technik to configure viewing sequences and content data. The list of options includes the loading and changing of customer pictures, movies, and audio data, safety briefings, airport information as well as boarding music and audio announcements. The system allows for the management of language translations as well as the editing and loading of geopolitical data such as city names and points of interest. New content data or configuration changes can be loaded via USB devices or Ethernet connection onto the niceview™ server.
