Audiovox Electronics announced at KnowledgeFest that it will deliver within 45 days a new, sleeker headrest/monitor system for back seat entertainment.

They come in different monitor and DVD configurations and work with an optional “Game Pack” that includes a plug-in game module with 54, 32-bit video games.
