Rockwell Collins’ PAVES On-demand seat-back in-flight entertainment (IFE) system is now being offered as a line-fit option on-board Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
“PAVES On-demand quickly engages passengers with compelling applications on their own large-screen HD display,” notes Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager of information systems for Rockwell Collins. “The PAVES On-demand system is a big draw for airlines because of the attractive options it provides passengers, as well as the potential for ancillary revenue from advertising, paid services and more. Airlines also like the system because it eliminates any single points of failure.”
Rockwell Collins designed each seat-back system that’s part of a broader PAVES On-demand deployment to be independent, so if one unit has an issue no other in-seat systems are affected. Additionally, PAVES On-demand is equipped with a quick-release mechanism to quickly remove and replace in-seat displays.
