Multiple video and audio codecs supported on 1024x600 screen
Manufacturers of home and car audio equipment Pyle has unveiled its latest in-vehicle sound system innovation, the 10.1-inch In-Dash Touchscreen Bluetooth DVD Receiver (PLD10BT). The new device features a motorized and fully-detachable front touchscreen panel. Built-in Bluetooth technology streams audio directly from the iPhone, Android-based devices or any other hand-held Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet. The receiver is also compatible with a wide range of video codecs, and allows a direct connection through an alternate audio-video line input jack.
The 10.1-inch detachable screen delivers a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and a brightness of 400 nits. A wireless remote control allows the passenger to control all functions of the system including volume controls, repeat, and DVD modes. Additionally, users can take the screen with them using the included detachable panel carrying case for added security.
The device allows for input of a rear-view camera that is auto-enabled when vehicle is put into reverse. The included anti-shock mechanism keeps the DVD playing even over rough terrain. Besides optical media, the player supports VCD, MPEG4, DIVX, and MP3 audio and video codecs on DVD or CD optical media.
The 10.1-inch In Dash Touch Screen Bluetooth/DVD Receiver (PLD10BT) is available for $285 at the Pyle Audio website.
