VOXX Electronics Corporation is now shipping its new custom headrest/video line with 8-inch screens based on the Android operating system.  These are non-removable Android tablets that are embedded in headrests for safety.

Through a WiFi connection to Google Play, they provide access to over 1,000 vehicle applications.

“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 while being securely embedded into the headrest.  This eliminates any concern of damage by taking what would be a standard tablet in and out of the vehicle, giving passenger’s endless content and the driver complete peace of mind,” said Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics Corporation.

The system configurations include an 8-inch DVD Only Monitor and an Android/DVD Combo Monitor: offering an 8-inch touch screen monitor with built-in Android operating system with three different configuration options including:

  • Dual DVD
  • DVD & Android/DVD
  • Dual DVD w/ Dual Android

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

The monitors are Google Play certified and use IPS panels with 5-Point capacitive touch screen control, a user friendly interface, a fast dual core processor, Micro SD card input (also used for memory expansion), built-in 8GB memory (expandable to 32GB), built-in Bluetooth and built-in Wi-Fi (needs 3G/4G hotspot to feed Internet access while driving outside Wi-Fi coverage) and a built-in camera and microphone.
