High-definition Video IFE?

Wed Dec 07, 2005 3:51 am

Does any airline have any HDTV-capable video IFE, i.e. screens that support 1080i, 720p, or 1080p? If not, what are the chances of an IFE manufacturer developing one?
Yes, I wear Fairy Tale Pink IZOD shirts. I am a real man.

At anything the size of IFE screens, 480p would be enough. I do believe some of the newest IFE designs have 480p widescreen format as an option.

Currently, most smaller IFE screens aren't even 480i, AFAIK. They are in the 320x240 range. Anyone have confirmation of that?
