This collaboration paves the way for improved picture quality and rendering capabilities, smart functions, dynamic system architectures, and will also significantly reduce the power consumption as well as weight of displays and other cabin technologies designed by Rosen, improving aircraft efficiency.

This product line being developed by Rosen Aviation is next-generation IFE displays with advanced processing, connectivity and networking capabilities.


Lee Clark, Senior Vice-President Strategy at Rosen Aviation said: “We knew the direction we needed to head, we simply didn’t have the right tools or the right collaborator to get us there as quickly as we wanted.

“Now, through support and collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, we’re not only going to exceed our own expectations from a capability standpoint, but time to market as well. We’ve already begun developing the next generation hardware and software, and have radical approaches to IFE system architecture that will ultimately change what’s possible in an aircraft cabin.”
