Panasonic Avionics Corporation unveils largest ever economy class seatback display

Panasonic Avionics Corporation, the world leader in in-flight entertainment and communications, today unveiled a conceptual 14-inch monitor for Economy Class seats integrated into a Quantum Seat designed by Encore Aerospace.

This integrated seat demonstration, which is on display in Hamburg, Germany at Aircraft Interiors Expo in in Panasonic's booth #6C20, was developed in six months through close collaboration between Panasonic and Encore Aerospace.

From the outset, Panasonic's vision was to deliver a solution that featured the largest monitor ever to debut in Economy Class. The company helped drive a thinner bezel design and a new concept for downward collapsible arm rests that helped accommodate the display. It also contributed to new space provisioning and harness channels designs. The result was the largest size screen ever available for the Economy Class cabin.

Paul Margis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics Corporation commented, "Since the debut of project Fusion in 2009, we have engaged in dozens of integrated seat programs with our latest generation IFEC solutions. Working with Encore Aerospace, we were able to apply the experience we've gained and create a solution that delivers an even more incredible entertainment experience while actually increasing passenger comfort.

The Quantum Seat was designed to decrease weight for less fuel burn and to maximize living space for passengers. It has a thin design that includes a carbon fibre seatback and pan, a retractable arm, and a hidden raceway that simplifies the installation and maintenance of wire harnesses. The monitor shroud is designed to integrate a wide range of Panasonic monitors in sizes ranging from 9 to 14 inches.
