Leading Inflight Entertainment and Connectivity provider, IFPL, are celebrating the major milestone of supplying their 2 millionth industry part to a key Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
Now in their 20th year of trading, Calbourne-based IFPL reached their 2 millionth unit just 4 years after the first million, demonstrating their continued sustainable growth in leading the way in IFEC peripherals.
IFPL’s Chief Operating Officer, Tim Young (pictured right), proudly accepted the 2 millionth unit from the company’s Head of Production, Marcus Baker.
“It is a testament to the whole IFPL team, that the two-millionth part followed so soon after reaching our first million.
IFPL investments in quality systems, manufacturing and product development capability combined with the development and introduction of new NFC, USB, audio jacks and passenger control units, means that we aim to reach our three-millionth unit even sooner.”
The innovative IFPL 2 millionth unit is IFPL’s Noise Cancelling Audio Jack (p/n 1155). IFPL’s Integrated Noise Cancelling Audio Module (INCAM) technology is designed to minimise cabin background noise – ensuring that aircraft passengers enjoy a more relaxed and restful journey, while also benefiting from clarity of sound via the passenger Inflight Entertainment (IFE) system.
Passengers may still use their own noise-cancelling headphones, however IFPL’s INCAM enables the airline to provide noise cancelling to all its passengers by simply relocating the costly and complex headset electronics into the jack module. Therefore noise-cancelling headsets are not required, only the addition of inexpensive microphones in the ear cups that are used to pick up the ambient noise. This improved technology enables all aircraft passengers to benefit from a more enjoyable and enhanced in-flight experience.
The 1155 Noise Cancelling Audio Jack is part of an extensive range of IFPL products and IFEC solutions, which includes the new reversible USB power and data module, Dual-pin
MagSignal audio and the latest in NFC contactless payment technology.
