Car DVD Players
Multimedia generally refers to automobile systems that offer audio
and video options.
Car multimedia systems include:
- Car video players
- Car DVD players
- Surround sound options
Car DVD players are referred to in terms of media played; DVD-Video
and DVD-Audio, Security and Navigation Systems.
This is where telematics and multimedia tend to overlap. Previously
options for onboard visual entertainment were restricted to a television
and VCR for rear-seat passengers.
Recent releases of in-dash LCDs, DVD-Video playback for movies
and navigation information, and complete surround sound systems
are becoming standard add-ons. To make these systems easy and safe
for the driver to operate, single controllers are available; these
are what we call multimedia systems. Many country and state laws
prohibit the visibility or control of visual media systems from
the drivers position when the car is in motion.
Features Of Multi Media Vehicle Systems
There are many combinations of multimedia systems for vehicles.
In most cases, one feature will dominate and therefore classify
the unit to a particular category. For instance, many GPS navigation
systems than use mapping CD's/DVD's will also play and display standard
movie DVD's. So check carefully, and take time to consider all the
media requirements. You may find you can reduce the number of media
devices in your vehicle.
- Built-in video monitor – are either motorized
to fit into the dashboard, or tilt away from the driver to avoid
distractions. Other systems only use rear-seat viewable monitors.
- Driver navigation systems – allow viewing
by the driver.

- CD and/or DVD changer – may alter the
systems' ultimate functionality.

- Combination systems - back-seat passengers
can view a DVD movie whilst a music CD plays for front seat passengers.
- AM/FM tuner
- Digital signal processing - includes amplification,
equalization, and decoding of Dolby Digital and DTS signals from
a DVD. Look for 5.1 surround sound using a small, amplified center-channel
speaker on the dash-mounted unit.

system, manufacturer to manufacturer.
Check system components carefully, some systems include only the
controllers and require purchase of additional monitors, signal
processors, and DVD or VCR players.
