IFE Services talks about in-flight entertainment at Latin American content show
22nd December 2011
Knutsford, Cheshire, UK. IFE Services, a leading in-flight entertainment (IFE) provider, gave a presentation at this year's Ventana Sur show in Buenos Aires to help Latin American film and TV show producers put their content on-board aircraft.
The company, which has more than 20 years of experience in the IFE industry, discussed how content is chosen by airlines after factoring in budgets, passenger demographics and cultural sensitivities. The presentation explained how detailed research helps to identify the best available and most appropriate content, sourcing from both Hollywood studios as well as independent film and TV distributors.
Some of the Latin American movies IFE Services has licensed to its airline clients in the region recently include box office hits such as ‘Un Cuento Chino’, ‘El Hombre De Al Lado’ and ‘Mandrill’. For TV shows, the content service provider (CSP) licenses popular local programmes from the major distributors in South America such as Globo, Alto Los Andes and TV Ecuador.
Maria Ignacia Barja, Account Manager at IFE Services, delivered the presentation. Commenting on the event, which took place between 2nd and 5th of December 2011, she said: "The show organisers were keen for a leading in-flight entertainment provider to explain how Latin American content producers can have their work seen by airline passengers. I hope the audience found the presentation useful and now better understand how a content service provider like IFE Services can help them.”
IFE Services tailors in-flight entertainment packages to an airline's specific needs, supporting all analogue and digital IFE systems. It then continues to refresh and update the package based on agreed schedules.
The Ventana Sur event was launched in 2009 by Argentina's INCAA Film Institute as a way of helping Latin American film and TV producers showcase their work.
