Enhancements for Airshow 3D moving maps unveiled

11th May 2009 - 17:24 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rockwell Collins has announced the development of Version 2 software for its Airshow 4000 and Media Center three-dimensional (3D) moving map products.

The new software will include more than 100 new features and enhancements that will bring  much improved realism and capabilities to the Airshow 3D moving map product lines. Version 2 maps on the Media Center will include additional details that take advantage of the product’s high-definition video output.

Key new highlights include: a new global map package that provides major improvements in detail and coverage worldwide; new time and flight status displays; realistic day and night views on all 3D maps; a new head-up display designed to offer a pilot’s-eye view of the flight; and a "completely refreshed look-and-feel throughout all features".

Version 2 will become the new baseline software for Airshow 4000 and the Venue Media Center.  Existing Airshow 4000 customers will be able to upgrade to Version 2 through a software update that requires no changes to hardware.
