Rockwell Collins introduces iPod integration solutions; Dassault Falcon to be launch customer
ATLANTA .- Rockwell Collins is offering two new iPod integration solutions that allow business jet passengers to fully utilize their iPods and iPhones for entertainment onboard business jets.
The new iPod Solo Station and the iPod Quad Station both offer flexible designs that allow passengers to charge their iPod and access their music and video libraries through the cabin audio visual system.
“Now passengers can make the most of their iPods and iPhones as integrated entertainment devices on board the aircraft,” said Tommy Dodson, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins. “By bringing the use of entertainment technologies such as iPods and iPhones into the aircraft, Rockwell Collins continues to add new dimensions to the business jet traveler’s experience.”
The iPod Solo Station is a docking solution ideal for near-seat, side ledge installation. This system allows an iPod or iPhone device to be connected to the Cabin Management system for charging, remote menu control, and sharing of audio and video. The iPod Solo Station consists of a small enclosure in which the iPod can be connected to the Cabin System and stowed.
Dassault Falcon will be the launch customer for the iPod Solo Station, to be introduced on the 7X, 900 and 2000 family by the end of 2008.
“This is a terrific concept and a sleek design from Rockwell Collins that our customers are sure to appreciate. The iPod device has changed the way people listen to music and view video and we’re thrilled to be the launch customer for this program,” said Eric Monsel, vice president, Programs, Dassault Falcon.
The iPod Quad Station provides an integrated way to dock multiple iPods to the audio visual system. The Quad Station can host up to four iPods within a series of adjoining docking slots, with each iPod capable of routing its audio and video to a different destination, while being independently controlled. This allows the cabin to be outfitted with four independent channels of audio and video, containing hundreds of hours of passengers’ favorite movies and TV shows, as well as thousands of songs from their music libraries.
