The In Flight Entertainment (Seats & Internals) data points in Fleets Analyzer detail only the physical hardware that is installed on each commercial aircraft (such as the seat back screens, overhead drop down screens, wireless streaming systems) which show entertainment content to passengers, and who it is manufactured by.
Our data points do not detail who the entertainment content provider is. So, for example, Anuvu, will only appear within Fleets Analyzer on aircraft where we have been able to find out that their hardware is physically installed. Anuvu produce hardware for both IFE and Internet Connectivity systems, but as can be seen in Fleets Analyzer, we have fewer airlines where Anuvu have supplied hardware, compared to the number of airlines that Anuvu say they work with, because to many of them they are the Content Service Provider, and most airlines aircraft have IFE hardware manufactured by another OEM, e.g. Panasonic.
