JetBlue's New Larger TV Screens

Wed Aug 03, 2005 3:43 am

Last night, JetBlue took delivery of A/C #618, equipped with new bigger screens.
The new screens are 6.8 inches long diagonally (the current screens are 5.6) and
are among the largest in the domestic coach industry. Jet Blue will be
retrofitting its entire fleet with the new screens in time for the holidays.
They will only upgrade 1/4 of the PTVs on each plane at a time (Doing the whole
plane at once would require the A/C to be out of service for more than one night
which means less $$). So basically you could be on a JetBlue flight over the
next few months that 78 small screens, 78 large ones. The whole E190 fleet will
come equipped with the larger screens. The old screens will
be sold to Virgin Blue and put on their planes (funny because Richard Branson
and David Neeleman have somewhat of a tense relationship).

Source:Undisclosed Source but Very Reliable

Sounds great! Can't wait to see them on the planes!
Enjoy.

I'd heard that the resolution is exactly the same as the smaller tv's, can anyone confirm that? Basically, it would be like taking a digital picture and blowing it up, the image loses clarity.

Well, it is not that bad. The pixel size will increase, yes. But it will proably still be fine. It is like with computer screen, there are laptop computers equiped with 15" 1400x1050 screens, whereas desktop TFT screens 17" @ 1280x1024 are still very sharp (and IMO even better, I am working on one too  Wink ). I don't know what the current resoltuions is, something like 400x300?

Actually, that's exactly what they AREN'T doing here. They are not taking a digital picture and blowing it up.

Considering NTSC TV is 640x480 (using square pixels) I would assume they would always use a 640x480 screen, so as NOT to lose clarity. There is NO benefit of using an 800x600 screen or larger on NTSC material. Using a 1:1 ratio screen for 'live TV' is the optimal way to go, at 6", 16" or 26" diagonal. Only for higher resolution sources, or for pristine DVDs and a quality scaling program, would a denser screen be desirable. But DirecTV is notoriously bad on many channels with compression artifacts, including many channels B6 buys, and adding scaling on top of that would be a bad, bad move.

Basically, you need to learn more about this topic before criticizing B6 for doing the right thing.

I'd hardly say that was criticism. It was phrased as a question, and just because I didn't grease the pole of B6 doesn't mean I was bashing them. I'd originally heard that comment from someone who saw the screens over 6 months ago, and wanted clarification since it's being rolled out now. I wouldn't be so thin skinned, it is a discussion forum.

And this is good because then we have bugger edge over our competitor and once XM comes on, then all they have different is games, and a smaller screen, and we have what they have, more radio stations and a larger screen.

I would just like to a have a better remote control. B6 now has so many channels it takes a lot of work to press the button a zillion times. If I want to flip between two channels I'm exhausted by the end of the flight.

We had N618JB fly in today, I had to do the bin, but I ran up the rear airstairs quickly and inside to check out the new TV's, I must say, the seats and TV's look a lot nicer than they did before. It's a lighter color material, unfortanetly, I didn't have my camera with me to snap a shot, but next time it comes in, I'll make sure to grab a pic.

btw, the bin was really clean  bigthumbsup

Maybe you should re-examine your own facts.

Fact: NTSC stands for National Television System Committee

Fact: The NTSC has defined standards for broadcast quality video in countries including the USA since 1953. You don't get to argue with them.

Fact: The NTSC defines a standard definition digital video feed (exactly like *gasp* that which DirecTV offers) as an interlaced stream of luminance and color information at a resolution of 720x480 pixels which plays at a rate of 29.97 frames per second, most of which can be displayed on any given television screen.

Fact: There is no point in having a digital screen like JetBlue uses on board capable of displaying any more than 720 pixels horizontally and 480 pixels vertically, regardless of its physical size.

Fact: Having a screen with lower resolution is a detriment to the video stream.


I am pleased that JetBlue finds itself in the position to upgrade its IFE when many carriers can't get any on board in the first place. Clearly they are doing something right.

Who was questioning this in the first place?

Quoting AbirdA (Reply 28):
Fact: The NTSC has defined standards for broadcast quality video in countries including the USA since 1953. You don't get to argue with them.

According to wikipedia, they were formed in 1940 by the FCC and they've been defining standards since 1941. I think I'll go with wiki on this one.

Quoting AbirdA (Reply 28):
Fact: The NTSC defines a standard definition digital video feed (exactly like *gasp* that which DirecTV offers) as an interlaced stream of luminance and color information at a resolution of 720x480 pixels which plays at a rate of 29.97 frames per second, most of which can be displayed on any given television screen.

The broadcast signal itself is 525i analog lines. After removing the sync, vertical retrace, and captioning lines, you have a 480i analog video signal. When Ikramerica mentioned '640x480' he left out the 'i' (interlaced) at the end. This may sound like a trivial omission, but a 480 and a 480i signal are not the same thing. These days you will find non-interlaced compatibility listed as '480p' (progressive) in electronics stores to help customers tell the difference. In addition, broadcast NTSC analog signals have an effective practical resolution that is significantly less than even a true 640x480i signal due to distortion introduced between the transmission source and receiving device. Also, from what I understand, television pixels are not exactly square, so 640x480i is really more of an approximation you get from applying a 4:3 aspect ratio to the 480i signal. Although you can buy NTSC DVD's with television programs at a resolution of 640x480i, this is not the standard broadcast image. It has probably been sourced from the digital master tape instead. If you record onto a DVD recorder from a broadcast NTSC signal and then compare it to a store-bought DVD of the same show you will see what I'm referring to.

Side note: The 720x480 that many people associate with DVD's leaves out the DAR (Display Aspect Ratio) flag. A 4:3 'pan & scan' picture comes out of the DVD player at roughly 640x480 and a 16:9 'widescreen' picture comes out of the DVD player at something like 853x480. 720x480 refers only to the encoded data and with the exception of the unused 1:1 DAR, not the actual output.

Quoting AbirdA (Reply 28):
Fact: There is no point in having a digital screen like JetBlue uses on board capable of displaying any more than 720 pixels horizontally and 480 pixels vertically, regardless of its physical size.

I did not know that standard mini-LCD displays came with a native resolution of 720x480. When I've looked around, this is what I've found for LCD's below 7":

280x220, 320x234, 382x234, 384x234, 480x234, 600x234, 1024x600

These are the sort of LCD's that you might find in portable DVD players and car audio/video systems.

Does anybody besides me think Jet Blue is going to steal customers from the bigger airlines?

They have done that all the time since their start-up.

I'm flying on B6 from JFK-NAS-JFK this Dec, so I hope that they will be ready by then, and I can't wait to try out B6.

Well if you are sure it was #618 and ot the one right before that than I guess they are, but the screens are on the wall so maybe it was hard to judge. They always looked different but really were the same.

Well they want to have most of it done by the new year so I am guessing that chances are good.

I'm fairly certain that flight, like the SJU flights won't have LiveTV for the entire flight. However, they may be offering movies on the tv's.

No if they start TranAtlantic and Transpacific service with 787s we'll really love them!

I'm Praying for that, B6 is amazing airlines and I would love to fly them overseas.

The TVs work the entire way from JFK-NAS

During my oreintation, Neeleman said that they want to stay in North America, kinda like a SouthWest type thing.

How big are Song's screens? Song's touchscreens are very nice and seem quite big.

I don't know the measurements but My brother flew Song and he said they were the same size as B6's screens (The smaller ones) so, our screens are bigger now. I guess touch screen is nice (Actually my home computes has one, but that is off topic), but bigger is better! And soon more radio then them will be great too.

NAS service has DirecTV because it is within 200 miles of the US coast.

Hey All,

For anyone interested in knowing more about the history of JetBlue, definitely read "Blue Streak : Inside jetBlue, the Upstart that Rocked an Industry." It's a great read - I read it a couple months back. It has all the info about Neeleman's background, starting JetBlue, and some great background on some of the "knick-knack" information like the acquisition of LiveTV, etc. Check it out!
