A colourful option for in-car viewing: combined with a TV tuner, the large display becomes a fully fledged colour television. It offers amazing picture and sound quality – also when connected to a video camera or games console.
Vorsprung durch Technik: the TV tuner has been designed specially for the extreme demands of mobile reception of analogue and digital television channels. TV reception provides an ideal and entertaining way of passing the time when waiting in the car.
Two tuners receive the picture and sound signals for the currently selected TV channel while the third tuner continuously searches for other channels in the background and automatically compiles the information in the form of an easy-to-follow channel list. The TV tuner is a multi-standard device (PAL, NTSC), supports the digital TV standard DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcast - Terrestrial) and receives all available unencrypted analogue and digital television signals in MPEG-2 coding.
The tuners receive the television signals via a total of up to four TV aerials. They automatically and continuously determine the optimum reception configuration to supply the best possible picture and sound information. Teletext and EPG information (electronic programme guide) can also be received. It is also possible to connect up to two external devices, such as a video camera or a games console with an optional adapter cable. The television picture is only displayed when the vehicle is stationary, but television sound can be played during a journey.
