Jet Aviation first to implement upgrade on Gulfstream V
GENEVA, Switzerland (May 17, 2011) – Rockwell Collins, the first to deliver high-definition (HD) cabin management systems to business aircraft, is now introducing a digital HD upgrade to aircraft equipped with its ACMS and CMS-1 cabin management systems. The announcement was made at the 11th Annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland.
Rockwell Collins’ digital HD upgrade refreshes and extends the life of a cabin by allowing passengers to enjoy a high-end home theater experience without the expense and downtime required with changing control switches and modifying the woodwork. Elements of the upgrade include:
· HD audio/video distributor, which also can upscale analog content to HD quality
· HD monitors provide dramatic picture quality
· Dual Blu-ray disc player
Basel, Switzerland-based Jet Aviation is the first to install the upgrade on a Gulfstream V. The digital HD upgrade solution is also available for Gulfstream 400 and 500 series aircraft, as well as the Hawker Beechcraft 750, 800XP, 850 and 900XP.
