Star Ceiling

The wonder of a star-filled sky allows us to see the world in another light. If you are not yet asleep, you might want to relax and enjoy a memorable experience of the galaxies from the comfort of your own seat.

Adding beauty to air travel

Adding beauty to air travel
The SCHOTT Star Ceiling replicates a beautiful night sky in the cabin, providing a truly relaxing in-flight experience for passengers. Up to 30 light dots or stars can be created with one harness. Each harness consists of fiber optic light guides that are powered by a single LED light source.

Cost-effective and interference free

Cost-effective and interference free
The SCHOTT fiber optic solution overcomes the space and heat problem by placing a light engine on a spot where there is sufficient space and heat can circulate freely. The system is 30% lighter than traditional LED solutions, its fiber optic bundles are simpler and faster to install, and there’s no electrical interference with wireless on-board applications. Overall, the system is able to perform with very low maintenance.
Star Ceiling Constellation

More options for a special flight experience

Smart software enables the SCHOTT Star Ceiling to create a number of effects. The Constellation Stars system allows cabin crews to make a certain ‘constellation’ shine more brightly than surrounding ‘stars’ for a showpiece display. The Background Stars option creates the impression of a far-away galaxy, while the Flickering Stars variant shimmers like the Milky Way.

Benefits

The flexible multi-fiber SCHOTT® HelioFlex harness allows convincing design solutions even when space is very restricted. One harness consisting of many fiber optic light guides creates up to 30 light dots and is powered by one single LED light source. This combination results in high MTBF (mean time between failure) figures and reduces installation as well as maintainability times.
