Rockwell Collins announced during NBAA that its Venue high-definition cabin management and entertainment system has reached 1,000 installations, maintaining its position as the market leader of cabin management solutions for business aircraft. Venue has made its way onto a number of aircraft platforms ranging from turboprops to long-range business jets and VIP aircraft since it was first unveiled in 2007.
“Venue’s flexibility and reliability has allowed a wide variety of operators to provide an ideal travel experience for their passengers,” said Taylor Prosba, director, Cabin Information Systems for Rockwell Collins.
Venue transforms a cabin into a fully integrated and on-demand office and multimedia entertainment environment. It’s also scalable and supports integration with features such as wireless on-demand entertainment, internet connectivity and the award winning Airshow® moving map.
“The interface is quick, responsive and the menus are very intuitive. We are pleased to offer our customers this modern cabin management system on new Global 5000/6000 deliveries, as well as a retrofit option on in-service Global aircraft at any of Bombardier’s highly qualified service centers,” said Sean Johnson, director, Aftermarket Product and Services Development, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
Future additions to Venue include Bluetooth® connection options, integration of Rockwell Collins’ Stage content service and the introduction of larger, higher-resolution displays as new technology emerges.
