Ovation Select Promises ‘Seamless’ Electronics Integration

 - November 3, 2008, 10:55 AM

Honeywell has launched its redesigned Ovation Select cabin management system, a package that “seamlessly integrates entertainment and connectivity technology through a simple and intuitive passenger interface.”

The user interface was designed to allow the passenger to stay “connected,” whether it is via BlackBerry, laptop, MP3 player, video-capable iPod, XM Radio or watching a movie from the high-definition Blu-ray DVD player.

Total control of the cabin environment is accessed through icon-based, touch-screen passenger devices, either mounted on the drink rails or through a wireless handheld device.

Ovation Select is built on a 100-percent digital architecture and Ethernet backbone, reducing installation time and facilitating standard end-to-end self-diagnostic and troubleshooting. It is also scalable to allow installation and use in anything from small to wide-body aircraft.
