Blaupunkts Largest Overhead Monitor Packs High Resolution 15.4-inch LCD Display in a Remarkably Low-Profile Chassis


IVMR-1542 features WXGA widescreen resolution, single-cable installation, and highest video performance available with chassis depth of just 2-3/8 inches

Blaupunkt has introduced the IVMR-1542, a 15.4-inch WXGA resolution in-car video monitor that features an incredibly low profile chassis depth of just 2-3/8 inch (5.97 cm). The monitor’s TFT active matrix display boasts a video resolution of 1280 x 800 in a 16×9 aspect ratio, a built-in wide angle (+/- 45 degrees) IR transmitter for wireless headphones, and a powerful suite of integration and control options that will appeal to installers and consumers alike. The IVMR-1542 has been selected as one of three Blaupunkt products to receive an Innovations 2005 Design and Engineering Showcase award at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show.

The IVMR-1542 monitor delivers unparalleled integration capabilities, whether combined with other Blaupunkt multimedia system components, or equipment from other manufacturers. All input and output connections are incorporated in a single 13-pin DIN cable to simplify installation. When used in conjunction with Blaupunkt Generation 2 video signal controllers, this cable handles power, audio and video input, source selection, volume control, menu, and IR remote control signal exchange for complete system function. A “breakout cable” is also included, which provides conventional RCA and stranded wire connections for integration with conventional equipment from other manufacturers.

The IVMR-1542 also features IR pass-through capability, which relays IR signals received by the faceplate sensor to an IR output line. This allows the monitor to function as a remote sensor for devices equipped with a 3.5mm IR input, such as a Blaupunkt DVD-ME R, ME2, or ME3 DVD player in the trunk or under the seats.

Like all monitors in the Blaupunkt video line, the IVMR-1542 uses a superior quality TFT active matrix LCD display that is guaranteed for 15,000 hours of use. The monitor provides a wide viewable angle of 120 degrees horizontal and 105 degrees vertical.

The Blaupunkt IVMR-1542 includes a full-featured handheld remote control, and will be available in February at a suggested retail price of $1099.95.
