Frequently Asked Questions

  • What added value brings Akumendo to my boat or my hotel ?
    Open or Close
    Akumendo brings high value services and welfare to the Guest. It is the basic brick for upcoming refit or new buildings, where you can plan to upgrade and integrate a modern state of the art AV solution that we, or another supplier, will provide.
    Akumendo merges the Environment control, the AV control and the Information system available for Guest. All in one beautiful GUI, highly customized to the look and field of the room
  • Can I download Akumendo App from the App store ?
    Open or Close
    No, it isn't necessary. It works with a local server on board, so you can download the App from the Akumendo Dev Center website. To use it you need then to be connected to the local server.
  • Why do I use iTunes ?
    Open or Close
    You are not obliged to use iTunes, should we not advise to use it? yes.
    But most of the Guests coming on board have today an Apple Macbook or an iPad and an iPhone. Even a PC can use iTunes. With iTunes they can all share their library content (private or public use) on the Akumendo system instantly and easily.
    We are anyhow using other movies players that can access the VOD server, so others solution's than iTunes are embedded in our system.
  • Do I need an internet connection to watch a movie or play music ?
    Open or Close
    No your movies/music data base is managed on board through a movies/music's server.
    The internet connection is only required during the commissioning of the system.
    We use iTunes more for the sharing possibilities than for the movies and music's facilities.
    We are not using iTunes to download movies and music's, of course you can do it, but we provide the tools to create a data base available on iTunes without the need to download from iTunes.
  • Can I use my Android Phone with the system ?
    Open or Close
    No as it is based on a IOS native Application. But on demand we can provide our system as a WebApp that will work with Android tablets and phones. Anyway, the result achieved will not be comparable, quality and speed will be worth.
  • How do I use a third system installed on board ?
    Open or Close
    It is really the Akumendo philosophy, the opposite to what you usually find on the market. We offer the all in one system that is missing on board but we use the existing architecture. We then avoid the single point of failure caused by all in one system offering a server and the clients.
    We provide the control of your third system on board, but we add other features at the same time. It is a real integration of the onboard devices, no just one among the others.
  • Can I use my Kaleidescape system on board ?
    Open or Close
    Yes, we provide the Kaleidesape remote control GUI. You can even increase your satisfaction using your Kaleidescape with Akumendo, as it is fully integrated in your remote control system.
  • What can I do with my old automation system ?
    Open or Close
    If it works good, just keep it, we give it a new life time with a modern and highly design new portal.
  • Can I use an external hard drive containing my movies ?
    Open or Close
    Yes! Plug it to the server with a USB connection and launch your movies from any IOS device or any set top box available.
  • Can I maintain the system without Akumendo team ?
    Open or Close
    Most of device used are maintainable through the manufacturer's distributors network.
    As we use Apple Mac Mini server, in case of failure, it is easy to buy a new one anywhere and to reload the configuration from the back up storage.
    Today, with the better internet connections on board, we can provide remote access for maintenance.
    But the main point is that you will have an open system that can be serviced, maintain, modified by other people than our recommended partners.
  • Do I need a license to operate Akumendo ?
    Open or Close
    Akumendo App do not require licensing to be commissioned.
    If later you want to extend the Akumendo App in other rooms, you will not be charged for new licenses. The system can be extended limitless to any new location connected to your IP network.
    The extra cost involved comes from the User Interface design and customization.
  • Can I use my personal iPad to control Akumendo functionalities when I arrive on board with guest status ?
    Open or Close
    Yes you can, just need to get logged on the server. The crew will help you to.
  • Can the crew add a page ?
    Open or Close
    If you are talking about a new user interface page, then no, our designer will do that for you. If you have a yearly service contract, this is an included feature.

    If you talk about a new template to implement into the info system,yes they can create one through their computer and upload in the server. But some precaution must be taken first.
  • Does Akumendo feature the same functionalities than Crestron system ?

    But Akumendo do not feature the same functionalities than Crestron system as per the AV Crestron features and their Matrix for example.
