New mobile entertainment systems from industry leader Audiovox extend the PlayStation experience beyond living room and handheld platforms to the streets and highways across the United States
Audiovox Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX) today announced the industry’s first rear-seat, mobile entertainment system featuring a fully integrated PlayStation2 computer entertainment system. Leading the trend of mobile entertainment integration, Audiovox will unveil the new system along with concept models featuring PlayStation(R)2 systems at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, January 8-11, 2009, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The premier model debuting at the show is an all-in-one, overhead drop down system that combines the best of Audiovox’s overhead DVD players with the added benefit of a built-in, fully integrated PlayStation 2 system and a 16-channel wireless FM modulator. This model features a full color 16:9 widescreen 10.2 inch display. The system will come with a variety of accessories, including a wireless DVD remote control, two fold-flat wireless IR headphones and two wireless game controllers.
“PlayStation is one of the most respected brands worldwide and has built PlayStation 2 into one of the leading entertainment choices for people of all ages,” said Tom Malone, President of Audiovox Electronics Corp. “Audiovox is the undisputed leader in mobile video and has been since the category’s inception. By combining our resources, consumers will benefit from a more complete mobile entertainment solution, and we will open up new channels to grow our sales and increase our presence at retail and in the automotive markets we serve.”
Along with the premier model, Audiovox also plans to offer two additional systems: a drop down style PlayStation 2 without screen that has PlayStation 2 system built into the overhead unit with dome lights. The entertainment system allows users to simply tuck PlayStation 2 into the overhead for easy use. The system is compatible and plays through most factory and aftermarket headrest DVD mobile video systems. An additional option for consumers is a system that integrates PlayStation 2 into a Quick Connect Headrest Bracket for quick and easy mounting in most vehicles. It too is compatible and plays through most factory or aftermarket headrest or overhead mobile video systems.
