Flight Display Systems Introduces Select CMS Platinum

Flight Display Systems's introduces its upgraded aircraft cabin management system called Select CMS Platinum. The new system includes higher quality, better reliability, lower cost, is easier to install and has fewer and smaller parts.

Select CMS Platinum provides VIP customers with customizable controls for all information and entertainment needs. Powered by user interfaces called Cabin Control Modules (CCM), Select CMS Platinum manages audio/video sources, lights, shades and more from anywhere within the aircraft. Select CMS Platinum is versatile enough to control any cabin from a six seat turboprop to a wide body airliner. Many sample photographs are on-line at

High-Definition is the hallmark of the Select CMS Platinum. The system provides resolutions up to 1080p and will also upscale non-HD content. Our Fly HD end-to-end High-Definition product line includes source devices such as Blu-ray players, amplifiers, and monitors ranging from 5" to 55" in size.

"We are very excited about this substantial improvement to our popular aircraft cabin management system," says David Gray, President of Flight Display Systems. "The Select CMS Platinum is a considerable advancement that uses a fully HD backbone for easy installation on any retrofit project."

To ease installation, Select CMS Platinum uses common video cable rather than Cat5 to transmit the High-Definition signal. This allows for a tighter bend radius and simpler termination and crimping. Select CMS Platinum requires fewer parts by using HD-SDI direct to LCD monitors instead of converting HDMI to Cat5 on both ends. Additionally, one switching box is all that is necessary for both High-Definition and Standard Definition video.

Select CMS Platinum now provides cabin control wirelessly through the Apple iPad (find the app on iTunes: iTunes store link) and on Android tablets and phones.
