High End Rear Seat Entertainment

Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) is widely used in premium cars. It allows the passengers on the rear seat to watch movies listen to music and in some cased to do videoconferencing.

Inovas APIX technology allows here a single cable connection to handle all - video, audio, control and data transfer between the RSE head unit and the remote display panel over a simple cable.

A legal prerequisite to transfer Blu-Ray type of Hollywood movies over a cable using APIX, requires content protection. APIX is supporting HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection) in selected products of the APIX2 product family allowing car manufacturers to build in Blu-Ray players or allow mobile devices connected to the car to transfer movies to the screens of the RSE.
