In homage to its large Russian client base the new update allows the user to seamlessly switch between English, Latin, and the newly integrated language of Cyrillic, and the system’s RC1 remote control can now also be customised to any language.
Version 2.9 also offers an enhanced intranet facility, which allows the user to follow crew schedules, such as menus or wine lists, in real time. Further additions in suite 2.9 include access, from the RC20 smart device app, to the public playlist - effectively a private on board radio station uploaded by the crew to suit any event or preference - personalised CCTV access camera-by-camera for individual zones and users, and full Apple TV integration. This is all managed via an integrated IP platform that makes configuration fast and avoids issues of conflicting software and the system crashes that often accompany them.
“We continually add functionality while our systems become faster, more compact and more flexible in their installation options,” said Lantic’s Peter Bouman. “The ability to update our software platforms over the Internet makes it simplicity itself to gain the benefits of our software upgrades without a technician stepping on board. Lantic is unique in its sector in offering a business model similar to that of some of the most successful superyacht yards [that are] active today. That is, all the benefits of a stable and dependable underlying platform that can then be adapted to meet the needs of the individual. And in our case, all our owners can benefit from each other’s imagination and initiative.”
