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.
12.1"
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.
800 x 600 
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 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)
No
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 Rear RCA Video Inputs
Built-in IR Transmitter
An IR transmitter allows the unit to transmit audio signal to IR wireless headphones.
Yes

Piece of crap

June 25, 2012

I purchased this DVD player back in April. It's never worked right since day one. DVDs skip all the time. FM radio fades in and out and you are always having to look for another band. I passed up other units that cost less thinking if I spent a little more I would get a better product. Didn't work out that way. Return posicy or repair policy if such I'll probably just look for another player.

June 17, 2010

I looked around for a great DVD player for my new minivan for the kids to watch on long trips. Of course I'm a computer geek so I download all their movies and TV shows so I wanted something that could play DivX and XVid files. This player came in significantly cheaper than the competition while boasting a USB and SD card slot and the ability to play nearly any downloaded file. I have season one of Dora the Explorer on one DVD and it can play for hours. It can also be set to play randomly. The FM audio plays fine in our stereo but when the kids are older we may switch to Infrared headphones. It plays DVDs automatically when you insert them, which I wish it would do for the downloaded files. It means each time we start the vehicle we have to wait for it to spin up, then press play and it restarts from the beginning. It would be cool if there was a continue mode like when playing standard DVDs, and a way for it to remember if it was on the last time the vehicle was turned off so that it would automatically turn back on. All in all it blows the competition away and when we get our second minivan we will be getting another.
