Jet Aviation Basel (Stand 590) recently completed and delivered an Airbus ACJ319 with the Rockwell Collins Venue cabin management system (CMS) and high-definition entertainment system.

The Venue system replicates the home entertainment experience, according to Rockwell Collins, including on-demand delivery of Blu-ray movies displayed on high-definition monitors along with digital audio. The CMS also includes the Rockwell Collins Airshow 3D moving map system.

The open architecture of Venue allows for easy installation of new features, some of which include the new Rockwell Collins Skybox, which facilitates onboard playing of Apple iTunes content. The latest Rockwell Collins inflight entertainment (IFE) products can be seen at the company’s MEBA standexhibit here at MEBA 2012 (Stand 586).

“Venue has proved to be an excellent IFE solution for a complex completions project,” said Neil Boyle, vice president, completions center at Jet Aviation Basel. “We have been impressed with Rockwell Collins’ project management and strict adherence to schedule.”M.T.
