Advanced network technology solutions remove barriers to wireless distribution of high-quality IFE content
Aircraft Interiors Expo, Hamburg, 2 April 2019 – Cadami is launching its WiFi cabin technology at Aircraft Interiors. There are significant benefits to using a wireless network. However, current WiFi technology has limited utility because the aircraft cabin is a crowded environment, making it very hard to provide the right bandwidth to transmit high quality content.
Thomas Kuehn, managing director of Cadami, said, “Wireless transmission of high-quality IFE content has always been just out of reach. Our network technology solutions make it viable.”
Cadami’s network technology solutions give airlines and their IFEC partners all the benefits of using a WiFi network. It is cheaper to install and maintain than a cabled network. Because it uses less cabling, it saves weight. And the network technology solutions make the transmission of a huge library of high-quality content, to both seat back screens and passenger devices, efficient and reliable.
Thomas Kuehn continued, “Our technology is already flying on nearly 200 aircraft, operating over cabled networks and giving passengers around the world access to thousands of films. The next stage is to start WiFi. Using Efficient Coded Caching, we can both overcome the current WiFi limitations while providing the same libraries people are used to with Netflix and Amazon Prime.”
Efficient Coded Caching is a unique, patented combination of the latest coded caching with advanced transmission techniques to make highly efficient use of the network infrastructure and seat-back screens. The result is to effectively increase bandwidth by a factor of between two and five. It means an airline can viably use a WiFi network to make a large library of HD and 4K video content available to every passenger on the biggest aircraft, without jeopardising quality.
Thomas Kuehn concluded, “We are constantly pushing the boundaries of what technology can do, to provide airlines with more efficient solutions and their passengers with an even better experience.”
Cadami is showing its technology at the Aircraft Interiors Expo at booth 4A04 in the IFEC Zone.
Even though there are significant benefits to using a wireless network, the wireless transmission of high-quality IFE content has always been just out of reach. The Cadami network technology solutions make it viable.
We’re going to Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, from 2-5 April, where we’ll be launching our new WiFi cabin technology.
It is cheaper to install and maintain than a cabled network. Because it uses less cabling, it saves weight. And our Efficient Coded Caching technology solutions make the transmission of a huge library of high-quality content, to both seat back screens and passenger devices, efficient and reliable.
Come and see for yourself on booth 4A04 in the IFEC Zone. We look forward to seeing you there.
MUNICH, 25 September 2018– Cadami used the IEEE 5G Summit in Dresden in September both to highlight its highly efficient video distribution technology and secure new cooperative deals with both industrial and academic partners.
At IEEE, Cadami was showing the latest platform, developed with Steinwurf ApS. This new generation platform is easier for network owners to deploy. It also provides improved Video on Demand and video streaming quality.
Cadami, one of the event’s Silver Patrons, demonstrated its advanced coded caching and media transmission technology. It optimises the use of the network, reducing bandwidth usage by 50 to 80 percent. These efficiency savings enable the transmission of a significantly larger library of video content, as well as increased internet capacity.
Michael Heindlmaier of Cadami said, “The IEEE 5G Summit was a very useful day for us. We started out as academics bringing an industrial idea to market, so having the combination of both worlds under one roof is very important, both for us and for the development of 5G technologies. Apart from anything else, it balances what is technologically doable with what is commercially viable.
“The result is that we were able to strengthen our relationships with the world of academia, ensuring we are fully up-to-date with all the latest developments. We also closed agreements to co-operate with other companies on the development of new products and solutions.”
Steinwurf, a Danish software company, specialises in network coding, complimenting Cadami’s technology.
