Media Center

Smart Entertainment

The new nice® HD Media Center offers a wide range of entertainment features. With its ability to store and distribute Audio- and Video content, the Media Center turns the cabin to a theater in the sky.
Lufthansa Technik has developed a multifunctional media center which includes a Blu-ray Player with built-in storage and update software packages that transform it into a Media Server, an Audio/Video on Demand (AVoD) Server (both wired and wireless), and a Moving Map Server. One unit can host all the applications and simultaneously playback two applications at once in HD.  All these features are offered in a package smaller than the size of our existing DVD player.  Finally, with smooth integration of the Media Center’s features into the nice® HD Graphical User Interface, control is easy and intuitive.

The Media Center can stream multimedia content either wired to nice® HD system displays or wireless to mobile devices like smartphones or tablets. A perfect entertainment source.


Blu-ray Player
Beyond Blu-ray discs, the nice® HD Media Center supports all other common formats such as DVDs, Audio-CDs and MP3-CDs. The delivery of video streams to bulkhead monitors and/or seat displays is DRM protected.


Media File Server
The built-in Media File Server Application stores up to 150GB of multimedia content which can be uploaded to the internal solid-state drive of the nice® HD Media Center via USB 3.0.

Video or audio content can be selected at the master seat location and distributed (synchronized) within the nice® HD system to bulkhead monitors, pop-up displays, and seat PCUs. The unit supports all common media formats and codecs.


Audio Video On Demand (AVOD)
The AVOD functionality enables individually controlled movie/audio/picture playback at  the seat.

Up to ten different video streams are supported, which can independently be selected at any display in the cabin - a 22” monitor, a 10” pop-up seat display or a 4.3” Passenger Control Unit. Optionally, a user or crew member can also pre-select videos and then initiate synchronous playback on monitors, sections, seat displays and/or cabin speakers.


Wireless AVOD
With its wireless AVOD capabilities the nice® HD Media Center allows passengers to use any smartphone or tablet device for media playback.*


niceview™ Moving Map System
The nice® HD Media Center can host the award winning niceview™ HD Moving Map System. niceview™ provides worldwide, high-resolution 3-D maps and virtual flights designed to create the ultimate flight information and viewing experience.
