Entertainment Packages to Be Offered
new entertainment packages are the latest consumer electronics to be
offered as inducements to the car-buying public.
Chevrolet Malibu Maxx will offer the Visteon Family Entertainment
System, unveiled at the New York Auto Show. Whether you're the
driver or the passenger, part of today's automotive experience is a
vehicle that delivers dependability, quality and convenience.
Visteon Family Entertainment System boasts a seven-inch screen with
a 16:9 ratio and can horizontally
stretch a 4:3 image to fill the screen.
Auxiliary input jacks allow the passengers to plug in
external audio and video devices such as games or video cameras.
The system also includes rear seat audio controls so the rear
seat occupants can view DVD movies as well as listen to other
available audio sources (AM, FM, CD, cassette) on the wireless
headphones. Because the
DVD system is fully integrated into the audio system, the driver can
choose to listen to the DVD audio source on the vehicle speakers and
has the flexibility to
enable or disable rear seat control of the DVD player.
consumer and customer research indicates that a tremendous demand
exists for this type of multimedia product.
"Our rear seat entertainment system is an exciting
example of how attuned Visteon and GM are to consumer lifestyles and
their automotive technology preferences," said Visteon
President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Johnston.
