Overhead Monitor Specifications

Screen Type
The type of technology used to produce the screen images. LCD, DLP, Plasma, LCoS, and CRT are the most common. 2 newer technologies include LED and OLED which use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as a backlight, as opposed to conventional LCD TVs, which use cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for a backlight.
LCD
Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.
Resolution (pixels)
A display's pixel resolution defines its ability to resolve fine details. Digital TVs and projectors measure screen resolution in pixels. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the picture will be.
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Yes
Brightness
The level of brightness; measured in candela per square meter (cd/m2), a calculation that measures light intensity emitting from the screen. The higher the value, the brighter. Some manufacturers will measure brightness in NIT. These measurements are equal. 1 cd/m2 = 1 NIT.
400 NIT cd/m2 (NIT)
Touchscreen
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
No
HDMI Input
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. HDMI output means that the player has the capability to output this type of data. An HDMI input will allow you to connect game consoles, Bluray players, smart phones and other high definition devices (if compatible)
Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

3.5mm
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

Optional
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

2 Sets of Rear RCA A/V Inputs
Audio Output
An audio output on small devices such as this is typically a 3.5mm mini-jack ("headphone" style) that allows you to connect the unit to headphones so you can listen to music and use the unit as a portable media player. You can also connect the audio output to a car stereo that has an "Aux Input".
Built-in IR Transmitter
An IR transmitter allows the unit to transmit audio signal to IR wireless headphones.
Yes

Yes
Headphone Input

Memory Card Reader
Whether or not the receiver has a built-in input for removable memory cards such as SD (Secure Digital) cards or MMC (Multimedia) cards.
Swivel Mount
Swivel mount allows the screen to be rotated or turned to a much more comfortable viewing position.

Impressed

March 28, 2009

I have purchased the PA PMD-121CM and had it installed @ B*** B**. So far, it has excellent pictures and it is easy to use. I noticed cars which are behind me in traffic are watching the screen as if they are in drive-in theater. My grandson enjoys watching it whenever we go somewhere. The colors are very vibrant. The only drawback is FM reception for several of my radio stations has drastically decreased after installation.
