Alto Aviation has launched the Alto Cadence cabin remote control app, as a companion product to the new System Master Controller (SM-1070). The app provides an interface for all IFE/CMS on a business jet.
The app is available for Apple iOS, Android and MS Windows (PC and tablet) devices. It will run on any wireless PED and the offering of wired touch screens provided by Alto. Combined with Alto’s SM-1070 controller, the app can support control of a wide array of cabin systems, communicating not only with Alto’s own line of products but also interfacing with monitors, lighting, source equipment and various third-party components.
The app is available from app stores and includes a demo mode to preview its functionality. Upon connection to the aircraft, the customised user interface is downloaded, providing easy access to all cabin controls.
A proprietary graphic design approach provides 3D controls that can be easily customised upon customer request. Alto also teams up with customers to audition and approve the app interface remotely during the design process.
“The new Alto Cadence cabin remote control app represents a fresh new approach to the passenger user interface,” said Steve Scarlata, vice president of research and development at Alto Aviation. “We made the design intuitive and easy to use with a responsive performance optimised for any device or screen orientation.”
