HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, CENTRAL HALL, BOOTH 10404/10415 –VOXX Electronics Corporation (VEC), a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp. (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today the introduction of its line of overhead and headrest systems that have HDMI/MHL connectivity to allow a consumer direct connection to smartphones, tablets and even SmartTV devices.
The new systems include certified HDMI/MHL inputs so that users can connect their mobile devices, charge them and playback whatever is on their mobile device on the rear seat monitor screens. This greatly expands high definition audio and video content delivery without eliminating older technologies (DVD) that are still heavily used.
"These changes make our system's entertainment possibilities literally endless," said Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics Corp. "Our systems not only surpass demanding OE standards, they also exceed consumer preferences in style fit and function, which is why we have been at the forefront of this market since its inception."
By being able to connect the digital output of a mobile device (Smartphone/Tablet) to the HDMI/MHL inputs on VOXX's headrest and overhead monitors, consumers can access apps on their mobile devices and show them on the headrest or overhead screens. This content can be movies stored on or streamed into the user's mobile device (Wi-Fi access needed to stream or access internet/cloud based apps), games, social media apps such as YouTube..literally endless content options. In some cases the mobile device can be used as the remote control for the headrest or overhead system to play games.
The new HDMI/MHL systems are available now and will have MSRPs starting at $499 and up.
