DUBAI (Nov. 19, 2013) – Jet Aviation Basel has selected Rockwell Collins’ market-leading Venue™ cabin management and entertainment system and high-definition (HD) Airshow® 3D Moving Map system for an Airbus A340CJ VVIP business jet. This selection highlights a series of large VIP business jet wins for Venue over the past two years, driven by the system’s flexibility, reliability, and open-architecture design.
“This is a significant milestone and one that makes us very proud, as this is the largest aircraft Venue will be installed on to date,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Venue’s popularity, especially for the VIPs, stems from the simplicity of its hardware and the peace of mind associated with knowing it will accommodate future consumer-driven technologies.”
The updated A340CJ cabin will feature HD monitors throughout the aircraft and wireless audio/video on-demand (AVOD) for personal devices, optimizing the viewing of Blu-Ray movies and other high-resolution content. Venue is built upon a fault-tolerant, ruggedized 67 Gbps fiber optic backbone which insures maximum system availability while providing necessary bandwidth to integrate the latest consumer technologies.
Installation will begin in the first half of 2014.
Once fielded, the aircraft will be supported 24/7 by the Rockwell Collins’ world-class customer service team, with over 2,000 staff and technicians operating from 46 service bases around the globe.
Venue, the leading cabin management and HD entertainment system for business aircraft with more than 300 installations, includes the features and functionality of the most advanced home entertainment systems and executive suites. Learn more about Venue at www.rockwellcollins.com/venue/.
