Astronics to Showcase the Next Generation of Cabin Management and In-Flight Entertainment Systems for VIP Aircraft at EBACE
EAST AURORA, NY, May 20, 2022 – Astronics Corporation (Nasdaq: ATRO), a leading provider of advanced technologies for global aerospace, defense, and other mission critical industries, announced that it is featuring its Avenir system, the latest generation Cabin Management and InFlight Entertainment System (CMS/IFE), at Stand B41 at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland on May 23-25, 2022.
The Avenir line, released by Astronics Custom Control Concepts, a leading manufacturer of CMS/IFE systems for over 20 years, delivers native 4K video distribution through the highest bandwidth Ethernet network system in the industry.
“Avenir is the pinnacle of In-Flight Entertainment for VIP Aircraft," says Taylor Prosba, Vice President & General Manager of Astronics Customer Control Concepts. "It delivers the perfect merger of technological innovation and functionality, including both LCD and OLED technologies and the largest certified monitor ever built, at 77 inches, for the ultimate VIP experience.”
The Avenir system utilizes fiber optics and Power Over Ethernet (POE) to flawlessly deliver audio and video content, as well as full system control. This simplified design significantly reduces wire count and weight over traditional CMS/IFE systems for streamlined installation. In addition to 4K video distribution, the Avenir system provides enhanced features and functionality, including wireless or wired intra-system streaming of all content, Audio/Video On Demand (AVOD) with full Digital Rights Management (DRM) support, and an interactive 3D map. Avenir provides a fully customizable experience, extending to the graphical user interface, for full end user control personalization.
Avenir systems have been delivered to multiple customers and are flying today.
