Flight Display Systems Introduces JetJukebox Wireless Media Streamer

Las Vegas, Nevada — March 25, 2013 — Flight Display Systems introduces the JetJukebox, an exciting new product for aircraft cabin entertainment. JetJukebox is a wireless box that allows passengers to enjoy media in the aircraft. That includes the ability to watch videos, listen to music, view photos, share files and even watch World-Wide Moving Maps on smart phones, tablets, or laptop computers.

“Initial feedback from dealers and aircraft owners has been phenomenal,” said David Gray, President of Flight Display Systems. “Once you play with it, the value becomes obvious. Almost everyone who tries it, wants one.”

Flight Display Systems Introduces JetJukebox Wireless Media Streamer

Product highlights:

  • Utilizes the aircraft’s existing wireless network
  • Streams media to up to eight simultaneous users
  • Content stored either on the internal JetJukebox hard drive or attached thumb-drive
  • Includes a super fast 240GB solid state internal hard drive (SSD)
  • Holds as many as 100 DVD quality movies
  • Includes World Wide Moving Map

Flight Display Systems approached the project with a goal of providing a cost effective alternative to hard-wired media streamers that utilizes fixed video monitors. Because JetJukebox utilizes the passengers personal device as the monitor and the aircraft’s existing wireless network as the data conduit, it presents a monumental cost savings over conventional, hard wired aircraft media streamers. JetJukebox is also very easy for passengers use because it allows them to select and view movies on personal devices they already know how to operate.

JetJukebox is essentially a small rectangular unit measuring only 6.35″ (W) x 1.95″ (H) x 9.75″ (D). It can be inconspicuously mounted anywhere near the aircrafts wireless router and draw power directly from the router. JetJukebox is completely self contained and needs no Internet connection.

Passengers access JetJukebox content by entering a simple URL on the web browser of their personal digital device. The passenger is then presented with a simple graphical user interface (GUI) that allows him/her to select any of the content (movies, music, or photos) available on the hard drive(s) or watch the Flight Display Systems World Wide Moving Map.

The Flight Display Moving Map allows passengers to track their flight’s progress in real time. It uses computer generated satellite imagery to display an accurate replication of the Earth’s surface including cities, borders, airports, and other landmarks to enhance the visual effect. It also displays key flight data including speed, altitude, time of arrival, and more.

The JetJukebox is available starting today with a list price of $12,000. Contact your local avionics dealer or visit www.FlightDisplay.com for more information.

Fly HD – Full Line of High-Definition Products

We have introduced Fly HD™, a totally new concept in aircraft video technology. Fly HD is a complete High-Definition system that is easy to install and provides full 1080p video quality. There’s a High-Definition transformation happening in the video world and many aircraft cabin avionics are quickly becoming outdated. Aircraft owners are looking for simple, cost-effective ways to upgrade aircraft video systems.

See the video now! http://www.flightdisplay.com/video/fly_hd_for_corporate_aircraft_and_business_jets

We had two goals when designing Fly HD: build high quality components and make them simple to install. These goals were achieved by engineering the components to use HD-SDI signals on the common coaxial cable that is already installed on many aircraft. This reduces the number of converters required and limits the amount of rewiring necessary. Fewer converters + less rewiring = lower total cost for a full 1080p HD video system.

The Fly HD components fall into three categories:

  1. High-Definition Widescreen Monitors,
  2. HD-SDI Backbone Switches and Converters, and
  3. High-Definition Source Equipment.

High-Definition LCD Monitors

High-Definition Backbone

“We’ve been working towards creating an end-to-end High-Definition system like this for years,” says David Gray, President of Flight Display Systems. “Now we have cracked the code to perfect aircraft HD video that delivers true VIP experience for in-flight entertainment and other video.”

The Fly HD monitors from Flight Display Systems are available for a variety of functions, sized from 7” to 55” in Widescreen format. The smaller 7” and 10” can be attached to arm mounts for cockpit usage. Larger widescreen displays are typically used on bulkheads and in custom-built consoles. An extensive photo gallery is available at http://www.FlightDisplay.com/photos/

The key to the system is HD-SDI, which can transmit a full uncompressed 1080p High-Definition signal via one coaxial cable. HD-SDI cabling is a thin coaxial cable with BNC connectors. Flight Display Systems provides several HD-SDI crossover switches, allowing multiple sources to be transmitted to multiple monitors.

We manufacture High-Definition source equipment such as a 1080p cockpit camera, however the 1080p monitors are perfectly suitable for existing surveillance camera equipment. Our Special Mission and Law Enforcement customers use the High-Definition Digital Video Recorder for mission tracking and playback.

Select CMS on the iPad

Flight Display Systems announces an exciting addition to our Cabin Management System, Select CMS Platinum. Users of our CMS can now control cabin electronics with their iPad. This release works with the original iPad, the iPad 2, the third generation iPad and the iPhone. The interface will be familiar as it is similar to our existing Cabin Control Modules (CCM). However, users can opt for an interface that is more Apple-centric. The app is free to download from the App Store, but requires Select CMS Platinum to operate.

“So many of our clients have an iPad at hand anyway, it only makes sense to be able to use it for cabin management.” said David Gray, President of Flight Display Systems.

The Select CMS iPad app allows passengers to view our Moving Map with zoom capability. Additionally, users can watch streaming video from our cockpit camera. The app can be customized to match the capabilities of any Select CMS configuration.

Select CMS Platinum allows VIPs the convenience of managing entertainment and information with the touch of a button. Switch or dim the lights. Access movie and music libraries. Signal an attendant. View Moving Map and live flight information. Now all of this is possible with the iPad family of tablets.
