Rockwell Collins’ PAVES Seat-centric IFE Makes Airline Debut


Reading time ( words)

Rockwell Collins’ PAVES seat-centric in-flight entertainment (IFE) system has entered into service on a new Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 delivered to Biman Bangladesh Airlines. The company’s advanced large-screen, high-definition (HD) IFE system is featured in both business and economy classes.

“This is an exciting moment for Rockwell Collins and one that highlights the shift taking place in the IFE market,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Information Systems for Rockwell Collins. “It is gratifying to see the unique, personal touch that Biman was able to put into the design of its PAVES system using the Rockwell Collins GUI developer kit.”

With PAVES, airlines are able to develop their own look and experience for passengers as well as efficiently manage non-DRM content via Rockwell Collins’ graphical user interface (GUI) developer kit through a web portal management tool. Further, the system features an open-software architecture to support customized and third-party applications with minimal effort.

Additionally, the PAVES seat-centric design maximizes reliability by eliminating any single point of failure. Each in-seat system is independent, so seat monitors store viewing content. Also, the system is equipped with a quick-release mechanism to replace in-seat displays in less than 60 seconds or rapidly repair broken audio pins.

“Biman Bangladesh Airlines is pleased by the installation of Rockwell Collins’ new and innovative PAVES seat-centric IFE system on our new 737 aircraft,” said Mr. A.M. Mosaddique Ahmed, director, Customer Services, Managing Director & CEO (acting) for Biman Bangladesh Airlines. “Their excellent global service and quality of cabin products meets the same reliability and quality we see in their flight deck avionics. Our passengers will be pleased to use this advanced IFE system with intuitive interface and we look forward to it bringing value to Biman Bangladesh Airlines.”

The next PAVES seat-centric IFE system will be delivered on a Biman Bangladesh Airlines aircraft in December.

Rockwell Collins’ complete portfolio of PAVES IFE and connectivity solutions meets the passenger engagement needs of any airline, including seat-centric, broadcast and wireless IFE, broadband connectivity, moving map and passenger services systems—all from one company.
