This list of features is taken from the Rockwell Collins Venue King Air 350i press release:

  • Digital, High Definition Video – A real-time, uncompressed high-definition distribution system that enables passengers to enjoy crystal-clear HD video from popular sources such as Blu-ray Discs and Xbox 360 game consoles.
  • Media Center Device – A new high definition entertainment device that integrates a wide variety of entertainment features into a small, cost-effective unit.  Features include an integrated Blu-ray Disc player (also compatible with standard definition DVDs); CD and MP3 Player; Audio and Video Jukebox; optional integrated 3-D Airshow Moving Map with XM Weather overlay, games, and front port USB input for loading personal media, such as music, video and photos.
  • High Definition Monitors – New 10.6” in-seat and 15.3” bulkhead LCD monitors, providing true wide-screen, high definition display.
  • Digital Audio-on-Demand (AOD) – Available at each seat, a new audio-on-demand feature that allows passengers to bring on board their personal music libraries for easy listening and sharing throughout the cabin.  The AOD capability requires no additional line replaceable units by leveraging the distributed architecture of the Venue system.
  • Programmable Switch Panels – New Organic LED-equipped switch panels featuring programmable soft buttons and an intuitive, icon-based graphical user interface.
  • iPod Integration –  iPod and iPhone integration options that allow passengers to plug their personal iPod device into the Venue system and distribute audio and video throughout the cabin.  All iPods can be remotely controlled at the seat through a virtual iPod menu.
  • Personal Device Support – Multiple portable electronics are supported for a variety of carry-on devices, including high definition game consoles, laptop computers, MP3 players and portable video players.

We saw the King Air 350i with Venue Cabin Management System at EBACE 2010.
