'Dual view' for Merc's S-Class

2008-12-11 10:20

Mercedes-Benz plans to equip future high-end cars with a display screen that will allow the two people to watch different programmes on the same screen, at the same time.

The new Splitview technology was developed by Mercedes-Benz and Bosch and uses the Comand system's central display.

Using a backlighted active matrix colour display (TFT-LCD), the 8-inch display (about 20 mm) shows two different images simultaneously by placing pixels adjacent to one another.

A filter masks the display so that, depending on the seating position, only the pixels making up one or the other image can be seen.

This allows the driver to view navigation instructions and the front passenger to watch a range of programmes, ranging from DVDs to music videos and chosen by remote control, on the same screen.

The new system will be introduced on the S-Class for the first time.
