Lumexis Signs Agreement with EMS Formation for In-flight Entertainment Servers

PALM SPRINGS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EMS Technologies, Inc. announced today at the World Airline Entertainment Association (WAEA) Conference and Exhibition that Lumexis Corporation has selected the company’s EMS Formation business unit to design and manufacture the optical video/application server for the Lumexis™ FTTS™ (Fiber-To-The-Screen™) in-flight entertainment (IFE) system. FTTS™ is planned to be the lightest weight, most reliable, lowest cost VOD In-Flight Entertainment system on the market.
