Who made the overhead IFE systems on the PMNW 757s and 744s?

I was wondering, does anyone know who are the manufacturer(s) of the overhead IFE systems on the 5600-series PMNW 752s, 753s, and 744s? I would like to know.

All of the PMDL fleet with IFE uses Matsushita/Panasonic. I also know the A330s use Panasonic IFE (System 3000i).

I'm pretty sure they removed whatever was originally providing the video for the projection systems on the 744's and it is now being driven by a 3000i (which is also used in the BE seats on the 744). I'm pretty sure I saw the Linux boot up screen on the projectors on my last 744 flight in coach. Don't know if the 752's and 753's have been converted to digital systems or not. I suspect not. The 753's were delivered in 2002/03, so their systems would not be that old.

This is a shot in the dark but perhaps Rockwell?

IFE

Not sure; but, I think it was either Barney Rubble or Fred Flintstone.
