INDEPENDENT VIDEO/GAME IN-SEAT MODULE

Invention by: Hironori Kobayashi

Every airline is looking for inexpensive entertainment systems for their premium classes, but current top-of-the-line systems are too complicated to install and too costly to maintain. In contrast, current handheld equipment does not have enough picture quality or entertainment depth to perform on a satisfactory level.

The creation of a new video game and movie in-seat module that utilizes DVD and Playstation technologies would be ideal if service expectations are to be met. The module could be variously embodied such as in Figure 1 (handheld) and Figure 2 (in-seat). These inventions would have the advantages of being: (1) easy to install, (2) better in picture/audio quality, and (3) larger and more diverse in game selection.
