In-vehicle entertainment will never be the same again now that VOXXHirschmann is eyeing the rollout of its next generation Evolution Series (EVO) Rear Seat vehicle Infotainment (RSI) solution with an initial OEM contract award by General Motors for upcoming model 2018, 2019, and 2020 vehicles. This marks the first-ever delivery on the three contract awards for the all-new EVO system which is presently undergoing extensive assessments by a number of domestic and international automakers.
Speaking about the technology’s announcements, Pat Lavelle, President and CEO of VOXX International Corporation, said that with EVO, they are redefining rear seat vehicle infotainment, moving far beyond DVD-based systems designed to entertain children to a mobile, wireless infotainment hub for global vehicles. He explained that by integrating advanced media playback and streaming capabilities with wireless in-car connectivity and easy-to-integrate form factors designed for OEMs, EVO was developed to enable consumers to smoothly take and share their content across a number of devices such as smartphones and tablets, no matter where they go. “We look forward to working with GM and our other OEM partners to bring the vision of the Connected Car to life.”
The EVO product line embodies the evolution of rear seat vehicle infotainment, substituting legacy DVD-based players, enabling users to crate and securely log into their own wireless in-car rear-seat infotainment networks and share and stream media content across all vehicle occupants irrespective of whether the content is stored and viewed on the EVO system or stored and viewed on a mobile device.
Moreover, the EVO system accepts content from SD card and HDMI/USB-based devices, supports DLNA and Miracast functionality, and features the EVO Slingplayer, giving customers a live TV experience in the car through VOXXHirschmann’s exclusive collaboration with Sling Media. Through the embedded EVO Slingplayer, Slingbox users can connect through an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot and watch the same satellite/cable TV package they have in their home, including on-demand and previously recorded DVR content.
