Alewijnse is rolling out two upgrades to its market-leading audio-visual systems; the new and innovative Alewijnse Movie On Demand (ALMOD) system and a next generation Graphical User Interface (GUI) created using Crestron’s CH5 development platform.
The ALMOD is a host of new features including instant media synchronisation, seamless integration with the Alewijnse AV system and the versatility that comes with a fully independent platform. The new GUI is faster and more fluent, even easier to navigate and highly customisable with multiple themes, backgrounds, micro animations and more.
Alewijnse’s AV/IT solutions can be adapted and customised to meet the needs of any vessel type and can be found on the most luxurious superyachts as well as commercial vessels of all types.
The ‘Keep It Simple’ school of thought governs the whole product development process. The entertainment system, for example, relies on equipment that can be easily replaced and a simple, user-friendly iPad interface. In the owners’ experience, entertainment systems on yachts are too complicated. For them it’s not a question of cost, but one of reliability, value for money and ease of use. We utilise off-the-shelf components that are readily available without having to call in a specialist technician, but the quality of experience for the user is exactly the same.
