Optiq – 4K QLED HDR Displays
Optiq by Thales is the industry’s first line of intelligent 4K high dynamic range (HDR) displays enhanced with Samsung QLED proprietary technology. The new in-seat and cabin displays have a sleek passenger centric design focused on ergonomics and fits seamlessly into the modern cabin environment. Optiq provides passengers with the best experience in the air, with an unrivaled picture quality featuring more than one billion colors. Two Bluetooth connections and built-in Wi-Fi allows passengers to pair multiple devices simultaneously to the system.
Pulse – Smart Power Management
Thales’s Pulse power solutions are designed to meet the specific power needs of passengers, now and in the future, as PED devices increasingly migrate to the USB Power Delivery standard, Pulse is a modular system built with smart power management that dynamically allocates power where the passengers need it. While being compact in size, the ability to install Pulse between the seat beams gives legroom back to the passenger and Pulse’s high efficiency lowers heat dissipation within seat-backs. With more power, improved seat integration, and reduced acquisition and operational cost, Pulse provides substantial benefits to the passenger and the airline.
