Malone continued, “It was not all that long ago that consumers thought that access to movies was the ultimate in-vehicle entertainment experience. Today content is king and the more content a system can provide the more likely that system will be a success. These Android based systems duplicate the content available on any portable device available today and once again solidify our leadership position in the Rear Seat Entertainment market.”

All systems feature 8-inch monitors with digital LED back-lit panels that deliver a vibrant picture with a resolution of 800 x RGB x 480; have certified HDMI/MHL inputs, USB input with charging support, Micro SD card input (also used for memory expansion) and a secondary A/V input and output (hidden). Additionally, all monitors come equipped with dual channel wireless headphones, full bandFM transmitter with hardwire FM modulation capabilities, 2 remote controls and a hidden away Junction Box.
