Changi Airport unveils new entertainment lounge

Hi-D Lounge features the largest commercially available high-definition plasma screen



Changi Airport has officially unveiled its new high-definition entertainment

facility - the Hi-D Lounge. The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS)

partnered Panasonic Asia Pacific Pte Ltd in the design and construction of the

lounge. The lounge, located in Terminal 2's Departure Transit Mall, houses high-definition

(HD) quality screens in various sizes for passengers to enjoy HD quality

programmes and interactive entertainment. The ceremony was officiated by Lim

Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, CAAS, today.

The Hi-D Lounge features Panasonic's massive 103-inch HD plasma display

screen, the largest HD plasma screen available on the market, reproducing clear and

brilliant images with exceptional detail. Besides enjoying high-definition quality

programmes on Discovery and National Geographic channels in the Hi-D Lounge,

passengers get to watch 'live' sporting events on the Nippura acrylic projection

screen.

Lim Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, CAAS said,

"At Changi Airport, our focus is on providing passengers the 'Changi Experience',

one that is unforgettably exciting, vibrant and enjoyable. CAAS constantly reviews

and upgrades facilities to enable passengers to enjoy a welcome respite from the

Other features of the Hi-D Lounge include the "Virtual Book". This is a touchscreen

plasma which allows passengers to "turn the page" by touching the corners

of the pages to read about the history and significance of popular sports and key

international sporting events, like Wimbledon, the Olympics and PGA Golf. Other

features within this 270 square metre lounge include an interactive floor projection

system and a digital gaming zone.

Completing the multi-sensory experience is the integrated bar - Travellers
