Audiovox Expands iPad Mounts and Accessories Product Line New introductions to include iPad Mini docks and add-on accessories
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- International CES, Center Hall, Booth 10415 – Audiovox Electronics Corporation (AEC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp. (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today that they will expand their newly introduced iPad mount and accessories product line in 2013 to include iPad mini and 4th generation iPad vehicle and add-on accessories. Delivery is expected in the second quarter of 2013.
Tom Malone, President of Audiovox Electronics Corporation stated, "We recently launched our iPad mounts and accessories program and have received great response at retail. The logical expansion of the line is to provide Rear-Seat Entertainment (RSE) solutions for the iPad mini and 4th generation iPad facilitating their use in and out of the vehicle. We are in the final stages of design and expect to have prototypes on display at the show and product shipping in the second quarter of this year."
The current iPad compatible Audiovox RSE system offers four vehicle kits to deliver the right mix of fit and function, each featuring a removable low-profile protective case that safeguards your iPad with style in and out of the vehicle and a headrest post mount docking station. Reinforced with steel construction, the seatback dock eliminates the "wobble" factor when enjoying content in the rear seat of a moving vehicle. The iPad case easily docks and undocks to seatback via a "Quick Connect" mechanism with adjustable depth settings for proper fit and the case tilts up and down to provide multiple viewing angles. The removable protective case has a built in retractable arm that offers multi-function uses such as a keyboard stand, table stand and eliminates the need to remove the iPad from the case when used in a non-vehicle environment.
