Virgin Atlantic Airways Selects Rockwell Collins LCDs
Sep 2002
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Sept. 17 -- Virgin Atlantic Airways has selected Rockwell Collins' display technology for its fleet of Boeing 747-400 aircraft. This is the first application of the new active matrix liquid crystal displays (AMLCDs) for retrofit installation on this aircraft type. Rockwell Collins recently installed the displays in Boeing's 747-400ER forward-fit aircraft. The displays will be installed in Virgin's fleet of 12 aircraft in early 2003.

The new AMLCD features advanced graphics capabilities to support future options including vertical situation display, airport surface maps and electronic checklists. With the addition of a video card, the display can support advanced video capabilities such as synthetic vision or video surveillance systems. In addition to improved functionality, Rockwell Collins said its AMLCD offers evolutionary improvements in life cycle costs over traditional cathode ray tube displays.
