High entertainment with FDS Jet Jukebox and Blu-Ray

26th April 2009 - 20:32 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Prolific lightweight IFE provider Flight Display Systems has introduced two new products for the bizjet operator on a budget.

The Atlanta-based company’s Jet JukeBox is a high-definition-capable media server with enough capacity for up to a hundred DVD films at a price of just over $6,000. And for less than $5,000 operators can have what FDS claims as the first Blu-Ray disc player to be designed specifically for airborne use.

Jet JukeBox plays back High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)-standard digital content at 720p and 1080i resolutions, yielding images that are significantly sharper and richer than those delivered by typical airline in-seat systems. FDS offers a complementary range of HD screens in several sizes.
The company’s new Blu-Ray player can work with both HD screens and older LCD and plasma units. It can also play back traditional DVDs. As a result, it can be installed one-for-one as a replacement for existing source equipment without requiring changes to screens or original media. Features include control via an infra-red remote unit, and an RS-485 port for interface with other cabin systems.
