Huge improvement in SAS inflight entertainment when the new A340/A330's arrive this year. This is taken from SAS' internet site www.scandinavian.net

Each passenger selects his/her own entertainment on SAS' new aircraft

Each seat on SAS's new Airbus A340 and A330 aircraft for long-distance routes is equipped with a screen on which a passenger can select entertainment individually.

By touching the screen and pointing to the desired choice, the passenger can choose:

Films - 12 current films are offered

Audio - 18 channels offering music to suit all tastes

Games - 9 popular games appropriate for all ages

The images and sound are of the highest class.

Landscape camera
During take-off, however, most passengers will probably follow the moving map/camera that is also displayed on the screen. In the nose of the aircraft there is a camera that films the take-off and shows how the plane is leaving the ground. Once the aircraft is airborne, the camera is pointed straight down and shows the terrain beneath the plane.

Camera pictures can be alternated with a moving map that provides information on the plane's position, current time, time to destination, weather conditions, etc., continuously during the flight. When the aircraft approaches its destination, passengers - with the aid of the nose camera - can follow the descent to the landing strip minute by minutes.

Screen in armrest and news via satellite
In Business Class, the screen is folded into the armrest and raised up after the flight starts. In Economy Class, the screen is located in the back of the seat in front of the passenger. The screen is at a comfortable distance from the passenger even when the seat is in an inclined position.

SAS is preparing to utilize the electronics on board the new aircraft to provide more experiences for passengers. With the aid of transmissions via satellite, it will be possible to deliver news and current information from the ground to the aircraft continuously.
"We want to expand the system as quickly as possible and offer passengers additional attractive experiences," Hermine Wachtmeister, Manager-SAS Inflight Entertainment and Communications, says.

Both relaxation and work are involved, and with the help of new technology the environment in the air -- for those who want it -- will be more and more like the environment at home in front of a television set or a computer.

Rockwell Collins, an American company, is the supplier of the Total Entertainment System (TES).
