With TopSeries AVA, Thales has focused on bringing to the market the best in class cabin wireless experience and content security with clear benefits for passengers, crews and the airlines selecting this solution.
The TopSeries AVA solution is more than a system. It is a turnkey service that bundles together the hardware, network, applications, content and all related support services. The solution is quick and easy to install with minimum aircraft downtime. ToSeries AVA is also a very light, compact and low power consumption solution. It is a good complementary passenger service to embedded IFE and can also be a stand-alone solution for part of the entire aircraft.
The TopSeries AVA system provides an optimized user satisfaction with the best display quality for a large number of passengers. TopSeries AVA benefits from the strongest security solution (including DRM) to reinforce the relationship between the studios and airlines. By choosing the Thales wireless streaming solution, airlines will be in good stead to offer compelling content.

Passengers can enjoy a wide library of Audio Video On-Demand, moving maps, survey, news, eMagazines, airline web content and more.
Cabin-wide, crew members can take their portable devices for convenient access to passengers, operations, and flight procedure information. With TopSeries AVA, crews will realize an increased confidence in managing their work and taking care of passenger comfort and safety. Crews will have enhanced mobility and effectiveness throughout the cabin which directly improves productivity and passenger satisfaction.
