Flight Display Systems of Alpharetta, Ga., said it has started shipping the first Blu-ray DVD player developed specifically for the aircraft cabin. Capable of playing Blu-ray discs or regular DVDs, the $4,879 unit interfaces with HD monitors and Flight Display Systems’ cabin management unit and includes an infrared remote control.
Rosen Aviation introduced an upgrade to its moving-map display and a new DVD player at the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2007 in April.
The RosenViewLX features a solid-state hard drive to eliminate vibration issues, a larger hard drive, a custom splash-screen and easier software customization, including languages, aircraft icons, points of interests and colors. The upgrade is optional on several aircraft.
