Bravo View Technologies, a two-year-old supplier of mobile video, said it would ship this month an in-car DVD player with built-in TV tuner, which accepts most flash memory cards, allowing users to view their home movies, photos or listen to MP3 files.
Brave View's SD20USB DVD ships with a universal card reader that accepts Secure Digital, Memory Stick CompactFlash, XD and SmartMedia cards, said the company. It has built-in decoder software so that it automatically “detects what is on the card and will begin a slide show for you. And if you have MP3 files, it will show all the file names and deliver the sound,” said Bravo View's director of sales and marketing, Manu Sachdeva. The unit has a USB 2.0 input, and it accepts JPEG images and MPEG4 and DiVX movie formats. The SD20USB is expected to carry a target retail price of $199 to $249.
Bravo View produces overhead LCD monitors and headrest monitors, and will soon release an in-dash DVD, said Sachdeva.
