Panasonic MPES ordered by Norwegian now on 6,000th 737
Panasonic Avionics Corporation has installed its Multiplexed Passenger Entertainment System (MPES) IFE system on the 6,000th Boeing 737 to enter into service. The aircraft was delivered to International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) and is being leased to low-fare airline Norwegian.
Panasonic MPES is an overhead audio and video inflight entertainment system for narrowbody aircraft. It features a broad range of entertainment options, including distributed audio and video, broadcast moving maps, and other entertainment content.
"The quality and simplicity of the Panasonic MPES product, in addition to the company's comprehensive customer support, were key factors in our selection," said Asgeir Nyseth, chief operating officer at Norwegian. "MPES will offer our passengers the latest advances in in-flight entertainment options, which is the perfect complement to Norwegian's business expansion model and flight schedule. We have strong confidence in the Panasonic brand to deliver the high quality experience our passengers expect."
In addition to MPES, Panasonic will also supply DMPES (Digital Multiplexed Passenger Entertainment System) IFE system to Norwegian for the 45 737-800s set to begin delivery in August 2009. DMPES uses technology that incorporates the X Series' system controller with analog audio output (SC-A).
