Collins Aerospace has simplified the graphical user interface (GUI) of its Venue cabin management system (CMS), the company announced today. Improvements include simplified controls and the same look on both cabin touchscreen panels and Venue’s mobile device app, Collins said, offering “a more intuitive experience” through more icons, less text, and fewer user motions.
“Venue has always been known for its unmatched user capabilities. With this user interface update, the system is now able to match the look and feel of rapidly evolving consumer technology, which is what we know our customers want,” said Steve Adolphs, Collins senior director of aftermarket and cabin programs for business and regional avionics. “This new enhancement, along with our Venue offering, will provide the most well-rounded CMS upgrade in the market.”
Available through a three-tiered pricing model, Collins claims its Venue CMS has more than 1,500 aircraft installations. The upgraded interface is immediately available on new, standard installations through authorized Collins dealers, the company said. Those who already have Venue installed will be able to receive the upgrade later this year as will those with VIP installations.
