How Big Is Too Big?!

Fri Feb 16, 2001 8:35 am

In your opinion, how big is too big when it comes to wall-mounted video screens?

Just thinking about the A3XX and its proposed private cabins brought me to wall-mounted video screens...so...

Sitting six feet away, mounted on the bulkhead infront of you is a screen measuring 16"x22" (tape four pieces of printer paper together for a visual), while resting behind your head is a small 3lb. video projector. Is this screen too big, or is a smaller screen, such as SQ's 14" diag. screen more than adequate?

I think that the airlines should replace the larger screens with a bunch of smaller ones so the passengers that would usually sit next to the large screens would not be overly annoyed. I think it would be pretty hard to sleep on a plane if you have a big screen tv in front of you.

Besides, the larger projector screens tend to have worse picture quality than the LCD displays that many aircraft have today.

Yeh, I agree with Trvlr. Ditto Mark. They should have a bunch of smaller screens.
