CES 2007 – In-car entertainment systems are definitely important especially when you have a couple of kids sitting at the back on a long road trip. The PSP and DS Lite batteries can only last so long, so what better way to keep them from causing a ruckus than playing their favorite DVDs? Hot off NEXTBASE oven, the SDV 685 model comes with dual 7″ displays as shown above. The unit on the left is the main unit, while the slave unit is on the right. These dual displays solve the problem of squabbling children as they fight to get the best seat in the house…er, car. Each purchase comes with a remote control. You can also purchase an optional IR headphones for your kids so that you need not listen to Barney singing “I Love You” for the umpteenth time. Pricing details are currently unavailable as at press time.
We had a look at Nextbase’s SDV 685AM Dual Screen Model at CES last month, and it was marketed to keep children busy while on a long road trip, featuring a two displays that share the same video source so that the backseat passengers no longer need to fight over getting the best seat in the house (vehicle, in this instance). You can watch a video of this tablet DVD player in action here.
