Rockwell Collins unveils new "Version 2" enhancements for Airshow® 3D moving maps

Rockwell Collins today 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 an unprecedented amount of realism and capabilities to Rockwell Collins' 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

·            Innovative new time and flight status displays

·            Realistic day and night views on all 3D maps

·            A new heads-up display designed to offer a pilot's-eye view of the flight

·            A completely refreshed look-and-feel throughout all features

"With the latest enhancements to our Airshow system, we are bringing together an amazing suite of new and refreshed features that take advantage of powerful 3D graphics capabilities," said Steve Timm, vice president and general manager, Information Management Systems for Rockwell Collins. "As pioneers in the delivery of 3D map solutions, we uniquely understand the issues and dynamics of providing both an innovative and reliable moving map experience for business aircraft. This enhancement leverages our 3D map expertise and insight into the distinct, customer-specific needs that make our Airshow system so popular."

"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.
