"We're pleased our ongoing relationship with Mezzo has resulted in LOT Polish Airlines and Air Seychelles choosing eVU to entertain their passengers," commented Fred Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital. "Our rugged eVU was designed and personalized specifically for the portable IFE industry and features fast and simple menu navigation with an industry leading 20+ hours of continuous video playback from a single battery charge so airline personnel aren't burdened with changing out batteries mid-flight. Besides providing single-ended battery logistics, eVU also integrates the latest in battery safety features through its removable 'Smart' rechargeable high capacity battery pack."

Falk continued, "Because eVU incorporates e.Digital's many years of experience building portable products based on our proprietary digital video/audio technology platform, we can provide airline customers a wide range of hardware and software customization options, including multi-language passenger-friendly screen interfaces."
