On both sides of the cockpit - just FWD of the O2 mask? It appears to have a screen display and lighting controls.....

That's exactly what they are. If you zoom in on the picture, you can make out a man in a white shirt on the monitor.

That's an odd implementation; Boeing offers the camera to be fed into the lower CDU screen. The button to access this is on the four-pack (my labeling) that also includes ENG and SYS buttons to control the lower screen info.

Maybe this is an after-market mod.

Was just thinking...Wouldn't the view be better if straight ahead on P1/P2/P3 panel instead.


Think of the brighter side!

My thought exactly (I wasn't aware about the Boeing option). It seems fairly inefficient/costly for 2 completely separate monitors to be installed. I understand each pilot needs to be able to view the clear zone in the event one leaves the cockpit, but this just doesn't seem practical.

The concept behind cabin monitors is still very cool however.

The newer 737NG's at KLM have the security camera fed into the lower middle DU. The older one's, have 2 separate monitors as in the picture.

I don't know if a modification is possible as it might be a system from a complete different manufacturer. Anyhow it would mean some considerable weight saving.

Adding to the above...

At my airline the newest planes have numerous cameras in the cabin. The average passenger has no clue where they are and I have never once been asked about them from a guest inquiring, come to think of it.

There is just one monitor located (inconveniently) behind the CA/FO seats on a single monitor above the circuit breaker panel. This is a factory option from Airbus as well. The ON/OFF monitor switch is very easily accessible by either pilot in the middle console.

This would be a software update I believe.......

Needs to be well hidden to be effective....which is tough on a pax airliner.
