Inflight entertainment is moving beyond the seatback, and nowhere was that more clear than on the Skylights stand at this year’s APEX Expo. Skylights is working with Stelia and InSeat Solutions to integrate its Allosky headset, which can show virtual reality, 3D and 2D movies from your seat.

But the needs of passengers with disabilities, including reduced vision, are also a focus. Bluebox Aviation won an APEX Award for its accessible IFE via iPad, which uses Apple’s built-in iOS accessibility tools to speak commands and enable passengers with low vision to independently access video.
