Rockwell Collins today announced that its Venue™ cabin management and high-definition (HD) entertainment system was recently selected for installation aboard a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ)—its fifth selection on a narrow-body VIP aircraft in the last nine months.
“Venue’s popularity continues to grow for modernizing large VIP cabins due to its scalability, ease of installation and flexibility to accommodate new technology,” said Dave Austin, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Venue’s design also offers weight savings, which provides additional benefit in large business jets like BBJs.”
The updated BBJ cabin will feature HD monitors and digital audio throughout the aircraft for watching Blu-Ray Disc® movies and other high-resolution content, such as real-time flight information from Rockwell Collins’ Airshow® 3D Moving Map. Such features are built upon a fault-tolerant, ruggedized fiber optic backbone which insures maximum system availability while providing necessary bandwidth to integrate the latest consumer technologies.
Once fielded, the aircraft will be supported 24/7 by the Rockwell Collins’ market-leading customer service team, with over 2,000 staff and technicians operating from 46 service bases worldwide.
