Headrest Monitor Specifications

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.
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.
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
OSD (On Screen Display)
Indicates that the unit has menus and features that display on the screen. Typically, on-screen menus allow users to adjust audio and video settings easier.
OSD Languages
Indicates the languages featured in the OSD (On Screen Display).

"Multilingual" includes three of the major European languages (English/Spanish/French) plus many others such as German, Italian, and more.

Number of Screens
The number of screen(s) the unit includes.
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.
DVD Player Included
This feature means that the item includes a DVD Player. For headrest monitors, the DVD player is usually built into the head rest for convenience.
Headrest Pillow(s) Included
If "Yes", the monitor(s) is pre-installed in an included universal headrest that allows for easy replacement of your factory headrest(s) without any necessary cutting or difficult mounting installation.
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.

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.

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.

1 Set of Rear RCA A/V Inputs
Front 3.5mm A/V Input
Audio/Video Outputs
Audio/Video outputs are typically used to connect an overhead monitor to an aftermarket stereo. This is the number of A/V outputs that the item has. These outputs are usually RCA Composite cables.

Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.
Built-in IR Transmitter
An IR transmitter allows the unit to transmit audio signal to IR wireless headphones.
Built-in FM Transmitter
Allows this unit to transmit it's audio signal to a factor radio via FM signals. This prevents the user from having to cut into their radio wiring to play the audio from their sound system.

The color of the trim around the monitor that allows the monitor to be mounted or installed into the headrest.

Do your research, spend the extra money.

October 8, 2012

We just installed the headrests into our car for the kids. We thought we were getting a good deal on a set of 9" monitors with DVD player for the price. After taking them out of the box, we needed a bigger headrest adapter to fit our car. Most offer a variety of headrest post sleeves, but this one only came with one set, a 12 mm. I have to order a set from somewhere else, since I am finding that the manufacturer does not exists other than through a listed website with invalid phone numbers and email addresses.

Anyways, after getting by this, we come to find out that the main unit with the DVD player is the only unit with speakers, and the B unit is monitor only without speakers. Yes, both wire harnesses have the A/V connectors, but on the B unit the audio is female output only, and not input. The plug configuration doesnt make much sense to me. The monitors seem to use the same housing to match but that is it, no speakers in the B unit. So this means that you must either use the small under-powered A unit speakers and hope that can be heard over the car noise, play them through the car radio via the FM transmitter, or buy IR headphones. Unfortunately both viewers must use the IR headphones for the signal to be heard.

The other quirk is the lack of instructions and somewhat unmanageable remote. There isn't much of an onscreen menu to navigate through the DVD easily, but I am still learning. The player is also somewhat slow in fast forwarding, but I have not yet tried many movies as it has only had a few kids movies through them... Im sure that after some trial and error, the remote might get easier.
