Shows a detail not usually available to common passengers, well focused, but i took one star because format of photo does not lend well to full page display

Interesting picture. Also, an interesting effect if you you scroll up and down with the mousewheel while keeping your eyes fixed on the various control units.

Seems like a cozy little nook to escape to. This is only because it has that window of course, otherwise it'd be a deathtrap:-P

We were putting the MAS2000 into the existing purser work station in 1999, together with a WBC cabin upgrade. Crew were very involved because of some ergonomic issues with this station (note foam strips about the seat..)

Players left are VHS (2, 1 can backup) for the overhead programs, left 11 HI8´s for WBC. A bunch of 4 track CD players are in the right lower corner, in two drawers.

I worried a lot about crew acceptance / inflight trouble shooting/solving but the pursers picked up the CBT course and additional help very pro-active & professional to my relieve, leading to a smooth introduction.

A big cable harness didn´t fit at first installation on the "Mother Theresa" leading to some delays (what´s new..)

In the end it was a very succesful project. It led to a significant improvement of system reliability, passenger choice & audio quality compared to the previous system, with relatively limited costs.

Soon the system will be replaced by a full AVOD system like KLM A330s / 777s.
