Heads Up Innovation
Pre-Recorded Announcement Machines (PRAMs)
PBS600 Digital PRAM
The PBS600 Digital PRAM provides studio-quality passenger briefings in up to 63 languages, as well as optional boarding music, without the problems associated with tape-based units. Message selection is easy, thanks to a large high-contrast LCD display and an industrial-quality keypad. Designed as a single unit with no moving parts, the PBS600 can be flush-mounted or surface-mounted in cabin bulkheads. It can also be easily reprogrammed with a PCMCIA card without removing the unit.
The PBS700 takes PRAM functionality to the next level. Besides providing passenger safety announcements and boarding music, it can provide customized inflight messaging based on the takeoff and landing locations and phase of flight. Flight attendant workload is reduced by automatically triggering messages from discrete inputs from the aircraft. A generous touch screen and keypad allow for capacitive touch or tactile switch navigation. The PBS700 script, boarding music, and route tables can be updated either by USB or Ethernet connectivity.
