Panasonic Avionics Corp., based in Lake Forest, Calif., said Tuesday that Israeli airline Israir Airlines selected its in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems for three Airbus A320 narrow-bodies.

The first aircraft is equipped with the Panasonic Digital Multiplexed Passenger Entertainment System (DMPES), an overhead in-flight entertainment system. The Panasonic DMPES is an audio and video distribution in-flight entertainment system for narrow-body aircraft. The system incorporates Panasonic's X Series System, which reduces space, weight and power when compared with traditional overhead systems, according to Panasonic.

"We are very impressed with Panasonic's global support network, and having local support based in Tel Aviv was important in our decision to choose the Panasonic DMPES," said Tamir Jacoby, service manager at Israir. "Also, the quality and innovation of the product is in line with the high expectations of our passengers, who want a rich and seamless ground-to-air in-flight entertainment experience."
