September 29, 2015 – Rockwell Collins’ PAVES IFE system has been added to the Boeing 737 MAX catalog. Each in-seat IFE system is independent, so if one unit has an issue, no other in-seat systems are affected. The system is also equipped with a quick-release mechanism to quickly remove and replace in-seat displays, should they fail.
Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager of information systems for Rockwell Collins said, “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.”
The PAVES On-demand system can integrate with Rockwell Collins’ PAVES Broadcast overhead IFE system, allowing airlines to configure cabins for their unique requirements, such as in-seat IFE in first class and overhead IFE in economy. PAVES also offers airlines a high degree of flexibility to manage their digital content.
