KNUTSFORD, England, May 26, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- IFE Services, a leading travel entertainment provider, today announced that it is working with Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) to distribute the PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable) system to airlines.

Through this collaboration, IFE Services can work with airlines to add one of the world's best-selling and most popular handheld entertainment systems to their in-flight entertainment. With on-board access to a PSP system and its broad gaming and entertainment offering, passengers can watch movies and television programmes and play the latest PSP games.

Custom airline branding can be incorporated on the PSP system, which is fully certified for use in-flight. The peripherals were specifically selected for use by airline passengers enabling the PSP system to be comfortably held or positioned on a seatback tray. The PSP system has a high-resolution, widescreen TFT display and a sleek, lightweight design. To provide an enhanced experience to passengers, the PSP systems will be equipped with an extended battery life offering from 5.5 to 11 hours while playing games. IFE Services provides comprehensive crew training and full logistical support and can tailor, load and refresh content to suit airline requirements.

IFE Services has signed supplier agreements with six airlines to date and advanced negotiations are ongoing with several more.

"We're delighted to be able to bring the PSP system to the airline industry," said Mark Hogg, CEO of IFE Services.
