Rockwell Collins’ PAVES Broadcast overhead in-flight entertainment (IFE) solution will be featured on 15 new Next-Generation Boeing 737 aircraft on lease by China Eastern Airlines, with deliveries due to begin later this year.
The news follows China Eastern’s selection of Rockwell’s Head-up Guidance System and Multi-Mode Receiver for 20 new aircraft earlier this year.
PAVES Broadcast’s High Definition Media Server (HDMS) offers 160 gigabytes of digital audio and video storage capability, integrated pre-recorded announcements, and music (PRAM) functionality with embedded Airshow 3D Moving Map.
The solution gives airlines the ability to handle updates of non-encrypted content themselves or through the Rockwell Collins Content Services Group, enabling flexibility in responding to commercial opportunities as they arise.
