• New side-ledge arm mount for iPads and Galaxy Tabs seamlessly integrates into cabin setting, charges devices

Nashville, Tenn | March 12, 2014–  Rockwell Collins today unveiled a new personal tablet mount for its market-leading Venue™ HD cabin management and entertainment system. The optional solution—available now—allows passengers to securely mount, charge and more easily operate Apple iPads® and Samsung Galaxy Tabs.

The new mount serves as a closely matched alternative to traditional side-ledge-mounted cabin displays and gives passengers a more ergonomic way to use their personal tablets. Rockwell Collins offers a number of apps for tablets that integrate with Venue, including its Cabin Remote for controlling the cabin environment and Airshow® Moving Map for interacting with real-time flight information.

For cabins with Venue’s wireless AVOD (audio video on-demand) or Skybox™, passengers with tablets can access digital content already onboard.

“With Venue, we’re creating a cabin experience that’s tailored to best suit its passengers,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Flight Controls and Information Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Our new mount enables passengers to seamlessly integrate their personal tablets into the cabin setting and more comfortably enjoy their own content.”

Rockwell Collins new personal tablet arm mount is compatible with current- and previous-generation Apple iPads (including iPad Air™) and Samsung Galaxy Tabs 1 and 2.
