VOXX (Audiovox) is shipping a line of overhead and headrest video monitors for rear seat entertainment, all with HDMI/MHL ports for connecting to smartphones, tablets and other devices.
Users who are streaming video to their smartphone can see it on the car monitors, which fall under the Advent, Audiovox and Movies2Go brands.
Users can also access YouTube, games and social media apps on the monitosr. In some cases, the phone or tablet can act as a remote control for the monitor.
The first two systems available will be overhead monitors with two HDMI/MHL inputs, one on the side of the overhead and one hidden connection to keep the wiring discreet. Both options require a digital A/V adapter (sold separately), specific to the user’s mobile device.
The ADVEXL10, Advent 10.1” overhead digital high definition monitor has a built in DVD player at $529.99 suggested retail price. A similar Audiovox version VODEXL10 carries the same price.
Joining these shortly are 7” custom headrest monitors and Movies2Go overhead monitors that are also HDMI/MHL compatible.
