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.
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.
1024 x 768 
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.
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.
450 cd/m2 (NIT)
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
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.

Built-in IR Transmitter
An IR transmitter allows the unit to transmit audio signal to IR wireless headphones.
Built-in DVD Player
Indicates whether or not the unit features a built-in DVD player.
Headphone Input
Indicates the availability of wired headphone jacks featured on the unit.
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.

Multilingual (3+ Languages)
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.
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.
SD Card
Swivel Mount
Swivel mount allows the screen to be rotated or turned to a much more comfortable viewing position.
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.

A great way to keeps kids quiet on a long trip!!!!!!

August 5, 2011

I absolutely love the DFL-1300IR, I own a minivan and researched before buying one. And by all means the DFL-1300IR is the best value for your money. Some units installed when I called some shops were a minimun of $1000 for a much smaller unit installed. I received the TV in about 5 days. I do know something about electronics and therefore the DFL-1300IR was a breeze for me to install. The kids love watching it on long trips!!!! Thanx

The kids love going somewhere in the van now!!!

October 24, 2011

VERY GOOD INVESTMENT!!!! This plays every kind of format you can record to watch on a DVD player. It is perfect for our Mini-van. The size is perfect and once we found the best radio station to tune it to in our area, it has been a pure blessing! The lights are not real bright but we have interior lights that we use so we do not need the one on the player. The kids love it and love to go places now. We have a 20 to 40 minute ride to get to any place we go so this has made our ride a much more enjoyable adventure! I would recommend this player to friends, family or a stranger. We have had it for a few months and have had NO problems with it. We priced them and compared features for a few months before buying this one and now I wish we would have went ahead and bought is a few months before we did. My husband installed it in a few hours and had it playing movies in less than a total of 3 hours. This has been the best thing we have purchased in months. We recommend that you have someone install it if you are not a handy person that can do things like this with ease. Other than that we think you can not go wrong with the Absolute DFL1300IR. If your family would enjoy watching movies going down the road this is the way to go!! The wireless earphones are the best thing too!! We love it and know you will be pleased especially for the money you will spend!!! I can not tell you just exactly how good a deal this is but if you buy it you will agree once its installed and you have a little time to enjoy it! THANKS SONICELECTONIX!!!! YOU HAVE MADE US A HAPPY FAMILY ON THE GO AND DID NOT BREAK THE BANK IN DOING SO! THANKS AGAIN AND I KNOW YOU WILL GET MORE BUSINESS FROM US AND OUR EXTENDED FAMILY IN THE FUTURE!!!!!

Absolute DFL-1300IR

March 25, 2012

We purchased this DVD player for our van 6 months ago. It has been a blessing to our family. The kids have totally went from hating to have to do errands or going on trips period to loving it. I would recommend this player to anyone that is looking. There are to many pros to list. But I do have to say the only reason that we have not given this player a 5 star is because it does have a con: It worked perfectly for 3 months. After that it started hanging up on movies that are purchased from stores. It plays movies that are burnt or on memory perfectly. I would give this player a 4.7 if I could give a flat rate. Also my husband is mechanically inclined in many ways so for us he installed it and had it totally playing with sound in less than 2 hours. We have had to move it 1 time from one vehicle to another and he had it uninstalled in 15 minutes and put in the second vehicle again in less than 2 hours. WE LOVE IT!!!!!
