Singapore Airlines (SIA) claims to have introduced the world's first video-and-audio-on-demand system, developed by Matsushita. The WISEMAN system allows passengers to rewind, fast forward and pause video programmes, as well as select and skip compact-disc audio tracks. SIA plans to fit the WISEMAN system to all of its Boeing 747-400s, 777s and Airbus A340s, at a cost of $1 million per aircraft.
