FDS Avionics’ JetJukebox media streaming device is designed for owner/operators who want cabin-wide entertainment and file-sharing capabilities, but don’t need the off-aircraft connectivity capabilities.
“The whole idea of a system like this is to declutter the aircraft cabin and remove all the excess weight and installation considerations of mounted displays and their hardware,”
sated Eric Delash, regional sales manager for FDS Avionics. “Today, everybody carries their own personal display in the form of an iPad, smartphone or laptop computer. JetJukebox is a wireless media streaming device that allows up to eight passengers to stream movies, music, PowerPoint presentations and moving maps on these personal displays.
“When connected to the aircraft’s GPS or FMS, the JetJukebox provides a moving map – and now we are introducing our new high-resolution map display.”
Dave Dodson, the company’s marketing director, explained that another advantage of the system is, when connected to a Wi-Fi router, passengers can share data wirelessly.
“The unit is basically a high-end file server with robust, high-capacity SSDs,” Dodson said. “JetJukebox is device agnostic, so it works perfectly with any personal electronic device a passenger may bring on the aircraft. Content can either be pre-loaded on the system via a portable USB drive or transferred from a PC to the internal storage.
“The JetJukebox has a built-in 1 terabyte SSD. With the ability to use external drives, the amount of available media is practically unlimited.”
The base price for the JetJukebox is $29,600 – well within the ready of anyone flying this category of aircraft.
