Collins Aerospace’s Venue Cabin Management System (CMS) had “a little work done” and is looking better than ever. A new and improved Venue graphical user interface (GUI) is now available for aftermarket installations of the system.
The upgraded GUI simplifies cabin controls and has the same look on the cabin’s touch panels and the system's mobile device app. It offers a more intuitive experience with more icons, less text, and fewer touches to accomplish most tasks.
Steve Adolphs, senior director, Aftermarket & Cabin Programs for Business & Regional Avionics, said, “Venue has always been known for its unmatched user capabilities. With this user interface update, the system is now able to match the look and feel of rapidly evolving consumer technology which is what we know our customers want,” said Steve Adolphs, senior director of Aftermarket & Cabin Programs for Business & Regional Avionics at Collins Aerospace. “This new enhancement, along with our already world-class Venue™ offering, will provide the most well-rounded CMS upgrade in the market.”
With more than 1,500 aircraft installations, Collins’ Venue CMS is the most fielded system of its kind. Collins has created a three tiered pricing model to provide more flexibility for customers.
The upgraded GUI is available from authorized Collins Aerospace dealers. Collins plans to roll the new GUI to VIP cabin installations later this year along with making it available as an upgrade for in-service Venue aircraft.
