The Skybox wireless media server allows passengers to access a one terabyte
onboard Apple iTunes library and share television shows and music wirelessly
on demand. Each passenger will be able to access 'digital rights managed'
content stored in the system on up to ten Apple iOS devices. They can also
stream content directly from their devices onto cabin displays.
"The Skybox option will offer the same flexibility passengers might find in
their own home, with virtually limitless choice of HD movies or music," said
Eric Monsel, Vice President of Programs for Dassault Falcon. "It makes it
possible for passengers to pick up right from where they left off at home or
in the office," remarked Dave Austin, vice president and general manager,
Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins.
The Airshow iPad app option provides a way for passengers to monitor and track
their flight progress and call up a virtual moving map of any area around them
simply by pointing the iPad in the direction they desire.
FalconCabin HD+, which was launched last year in collaboration with Rockwell
Collins, utilizes a state-of-the-art fiber optic network to distribute crisp,
high-definition audio and video content throughout the cabin. It uses a family
of intuitive, user-friendly touch-screen monitors up to 24 inches, giving
passengers total control of all cabin features in one easy-to-use solution.
The system also permits cabin functions to be controlled from anywhere in the
aircraft via iPad or iPhone.
The first Falcon 7X and Falcon 900LX equipped with FalconCabin HD+ have just
entered service. The new Falcon 2000LXS, launched at the NBAA convention, will
also be fitted with the system.
