Rockwell Collins’ Venue, Airshow cabin systems selected for wide-body VIP business jet
Rockwell Collins’ Venue HD cabin management and entertainment system, Airshow Moving Map and audio/video on-demand (AVOD) streaming solution, have been selected by an undisclosed customer for a wide-body Airbus A340 business jet. The comprehensive cabin package will be installed in mid-2015. The updated A340 will feature full-cabin video and music streaming capabilities for both Apple and Android personal devices, made possible by Venue’s audio/video on-demand (AVOD) function. The aircraft will also feature various-sized large HD monitors in parts of the cabin for optimized viewing of Blu-ray movies and other high-resolution content. The selected cabin systems will be supported 24/7 by Rockwell Collins’ world-class customer service team, with over 2,000 staff and technicians operating from 46 bases around the globe. Rockwell Collins’ Venue system has been selected for a number of large VIP business aircraft over the last several years, including Airbus and Boeing business aircraft. Venue features a fault-tolerant, ruggedized fiber optic backbone, which ensures maximum system availability while providing necessary bandwidth to integrate the latest consumer technologies. It also features intuitive cabin controls for passengers to easily manage their ride environment, both from on-board interfaces and personal devices. Venue has been installed on more than 450 business aircraft, ranging from turboprops to long-range business jets and VIP aircraft.
