Rockwell Collins adds iPod® integration to IFE offerings

Rockwell Collins today announced a new feature to its digital in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems that allows passengers to output audio and video to the in-seat displays and headphones from Apple's iPod® and other portable media devices. The announcement was made at World Airlines Entertainment Association (WAEA) Annual Conference & Exhibition taking place this week.  

The new integration feature is available on Rockwell Collins' Digital Total Entertainment System (dTES®) and Enhanced Total Entertainment System (eTES®) for twin aisle aircraft.  

"We understand it is becoming increasingly important for passengers to bring their own entertainment devices with them as they travel," said Tommy Dodson, vice president and general manager of Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins. "Our solution complements our dTES, and eTES systems by allowing passengers to take advantage of the systems' superior display and audio capabilities, while allowing them to truly personalize their entertainment experiences while they fly."  

The new integration feature, which includes USB charging capability, works with iPhone, iPod Touch, iPod Classic and iPod Nano as well as other popular portable media devices.  

Rockwell Collins' dTES solution provides an upgrade from analog tape to high-quality digital audio and video sources. For more information about Rockwell Collins dTES visit: http://www.rockwellcollins.com/ecat/at/dTES.html?smenu=109  

With eTES, passengers enjoy AVOD and interactivity – along with the same high-speed network connectivity they enjoy at home and in the office. For more information about eTES visit: http://www.rockwellcollins.com/ecat/at/eTES.html?smenu=109
