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.
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.
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
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)
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.

RCA Composite Outputs
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.

1 Set of Audio/Video RCA Outputs
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)
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.

Awesome device!!

September 14, 2011

This is the best product ever. I had custom installed screens in my original headrest when I purchased the truck, and although it looked good it wasn't the best. When I blew one of the screens out. I decided to just go ahead and buy a brand new pair. The Concept Chameleon had the look, the options and price, that Sound Sensations could not match! People think they are the factory headrests. I placed them in a Avalanche Truck! I didn't even have to buy new covers. The black cover gave my drk grey leather seat a cool look. It flows like BUTTERRR! I have a 12inch overhead, and it that blows I will look for the Concept overhead! Thanks, Sonic's and remember me for future purchases, as I will remember you guys!

Great Product - Great Service

April 11, 2011

After researching headrest DVD players, it seemed by the reviews that the Chameleon was the best value and best product available. Our 6 year old loves it, color is great, easy to use. The sound is adequate but could be louder, riding without using a headphones the sound needs to be maxed out and can hear ok. With the headphones the sound can be turned down to less than half. We are very happy with the product and would recommend it as well as purchasing through Sonci Electronix.

Works great! Much better than Power Acoustik HDVD 73

February 8, 2011

This is my second headrest DVD player, and it is much better than the Power Acoustik HDVD 73. The Power Acoustik scratches DVD's as the ribbon cable sticks out too far. It also makes grinding noises and I have to unplug and plug back in the power cord occasionally to get it working again. The Concept Chameleon has none of those issues. The only complaint I have is that the power button on the unit doesn't always work. Sometimes I have to try it several times before it will turn on or off. I took a star off in the "Ease of Use" for this. The remote control works every time though.
Other thoughts: the Concept is much brighter and displays black levels better than the PA. The included cigarette lighter adapter is a huge plus over the PA as well. The included speaker works great for us in a Honda Odyssey. Users on other sites complained that the speaker is too quiet for highway use, but I don't agree.
