The iPad is going everywhere. This time a superyacht will become its latest destination. Van Berge Henegouwen Installaties has wired 12 areas of a 85m superyacht with latest Apple gadget. Van Berge Henegouwen has been trying to improve the experience of travellers by making yachts replete all the latest hi-tech gadgets. And considering that the Apple iPad is the latest must have in the gadget and gizmos, it is not surprising that the company integrated it into the yachts.
But don’t think that these iPads on board would have the run of the mill apps. Van Berge Henegouwen has added the integrated control device for the onboard audio visual systems, the rooms temperature setting and other integrated systems into this device.
Arjan Kleinveld, Managing Director of Van Berge Henegouwen explains: “Van Berge Henegouwen Installaties is in a unique position to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding and imaginative clients. We continuously strive to implement the latest proven technologies in our systems. Our recent implementation of the first iPads to control onboard systems is only a first example, and there’s a lot more to come. Recently we also integrated the iPhone with the on board Cisco Call Manager, which means that the iPhone can use all the benefits of the onboard Cisco phone system.”
