APEX Insight: At APEX MultiMedia Market in Paris this week, APEX Media met Molang and Piu Piu, characters from the popular non-dialogue animated series Molang, which is already showing on Air France, Emirates and Air Italy. We also spoke with Panasonic about how it’s shaking its “hardware systems provider” label with a broader service offering and with industry veteran Rick Warren, who attended the event for the first time this year.
Millimages is a leader in the European children’s entertainment industry, best known for its creative designs and high quality properties.

Rick Warren, 27-year IFE industry veteran, attended APEX Multimedia Market for the first time this year in Paris. He says the appointment-based format of the event really works and diversity of content available for airlines is great.
