As everyone should know, Panasonic has introduced the Eco 9i Integrated Smart Monitor through a partnership with Weber. However, Thales has introduced their own integrated smart monitor through a similar partnership with B/E Aerospace.
Considering how lightweight these monitors are, could this spell the end for overhead IFE? The smaller difference in weight may make overhead IFE pointless. I wouldn't be surprised if LiveTV or Rockwell Collins introduced their own integrated smart monitor and signed a deal with Recaro or another seat manufacturer.
Does anyone have their own opinion
