  • 5 Reasons to Invest in a Headrest DVD Player

    A lot of you can probably remember a time when a long-distance car journey to visit a distant relative required serious planning and organising (in terms of in-car entertainment). It probably included a travel version of Battleships, felt pens and a range of sugary treats. All of which became a recipe for disagreements and arguments with your sibling whilst your parents became increasingly annoyed.

    Sure enough, mid-family meltdown, a grand and superior car would cruise by you in the outside lane demonstrating how it should be done. Parents happily humming along to the radio whilst their offspring enjoy the latest Disney experience from the backseat with a built-in Headrest DVD Player.

    Today, this is not such a distant dream. Headrest DVD Players are more accessible, adaptable and affordable than ever. Plus, they’re a lot smarter and more stylish than

     

    01. Headrest DVD Player Affordability

    Investing in a Headrest DVD Player could be one of the smartest things you do this year, if you prefer peace and quiet on a family car journey.

    Due to the development of technology, Headrest DVD Players are becoming more affordable whilst maintaining levels of quality and performance.

    You can pick up this pair of leather touch panel 7” HD Headrest DVD Players for as little as £169.99 at Xtrons. To see them in all their glory, watch the video.

    At roughly £85 each, can you put a price on a 3-hour uninterrupted and peaceful car journey?

     

    02. Headrest DVD Player Popularity

    It’s no surprise that the popularity of Headrest DVD players is rapidly rising (no doubt coinciding with the growth and expansion of the film and entertainment industry) making the demand for on-the-go entertainment as popular as ever.

    The way we access films and music has also changed and Headrest DVD Players have evolved with alongside it. Many of our units come with USB ports for downloading, uploading and arranging files on the move. SD car ports also allow for easy access to personal files and information.

    Plus, they look incredible. Not only the resolution but the general aesthetics will make fellow car enthusiasts green with envy.

    Unsurprisingly, these are the must have accessory for most families.

     

    03. Headrest DVD Player Resolvability

    We can all relate to how transfixed we can become with a good film. Take long-haul flights for example. It’s easy to get through 3 or 4 films without even realising. It passes the time perfectly, especially if you’ve got restless little ones.

    Sometimes the only wish is that we had such ability on a long-distance car journey to help to deliver the vibrant colours, animations and sounds of a Pixar, hypnotising almost any audience, anywhere, anytime.

    What’s more is that your kids can choose their own film or music to watch, so there’s no squabbles there either!

     

    04. Headrest DVD Player Adaptability

    With a size and style to cater for just about every taste and every car manufacturer, Xtrons Headrest DVD Players can adapt to any car interior or environment.

    A range of colours including black, grey, cream and beige allow our Headrest DVD Players to blend in with your car’s interior.

  • Quad-Core Android Car Stereos at Xtrons

    One thing that must be said for our Quad-Core Android car stereos is that they should not be disregarded just because of the arrival of our Octa-Core head units.

     

    Why shouldn’t you disregard Quad-Core Android car stereos?

    Although Quad (four) is half of Octa (eight), it doesn’t mean that it has half the qualities or 50% of the performance. Each Quad-Core chip works tirelessly to produce fast and fluid multitasking, generating smoother and swifter functionality. The advancement to Octa-Core is down to the technology being available and the improved efficiency. It’s the most practical development to make.

    Why do people say Octa-Core Android car stereos are better?

    Octa-Core car stereos are deemed better largely due to the advanced functionalities available compared to Quad-Core car stereos.

    The more modern Octa-Core chips have two sets of Quad-Core processors. With double the number of processors, the tasks are split between them, drawing upon different cores for optimum performance. For instance, when more advanced tasks, such as 3D gameplay, are in action, the faster cores will take care of it, leaving the lesser cores to handle more day-to-day functionality like navigating through screens or browsing the web. This gives you a more fluid experience, but not necessarily twice the performance, like many assume.

    Why are Quad-Core Android head units still favourable?

    Quad-Core head units are still as powerful as some modern desktop computers and still have a wide range of functionality and adaptability, despite the arrival of Octa-Core head units.

    The development to Octa-Core was a lot about efficiency and using the extra processors to manage and maintain the head unit’s overall performance, especially when multi-tasking. Therefore, it is faster and smoother, but depending on how you use your Quad-Core unit, the key differences and functionalities are not that noticeable. One reason for this is the Android Marshmallow 6.0 software installed on most of our Quad-Core head units; it’s the same as what we use on our Octa-Core units, so you still get the same high level of performance.

  • Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB/DAB+) at Xtrons

    The crisp connection and soothing, uninterrupted sound of DAB is unmistakable; it’s no surprise our customers are putting this feature towards the top end of their basic requirements when purchasing a new head unit.

     

    And in case you were wondering why, we’ve covered a few of the FAQs surrounding DAB.

    What is DAB?

    Not to be confused with ‘the dab’ or ‘dabbing’ dance move, DAB is the digital technology behind traditional terrestrial radio and has been around longer than many may think. Launched in the UK in 1995, DAB receivers have been available for over two decades and have helped to improve the quality and robustness of radio.

    What is DAB+?

    Released in 2007, DAB+ is an upgraded version of the original, and is said to be twice as efficient, making listening to the radio a more enjoyable, ceaseless experience for the masses. It has a better error correction which can reduce problems in poor reception areas.

    Good news: the upgrade can be as simple as downloading some new firmware or typing in a code.

    Why are we switching to DAB+?

    FM is full. It has peaked. It’s reached the limits of what it set out to do. Therefore, the future is digital, the future is DAB.

    What are the advantages of DAB/DAB+ radio?

    With more readily available content from an array of stations at the touch of a button, DAB is now the people’s favourite. Features such as track and artist information on screen, digital sound quality, internet radio, and the ability to pause, rewind and record make DAB much more preferable. It has less unlicensed (pirate) station interference too.

    In addition to this, more than 30 countries provide DAB/DAB+ broadcasts including: Australia, France, Germany, Honk Kong, Italy, Ireland, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

    How can you find DAB+ Stations in the UK?

    Just pop your postcode in here and see what’s available near you: http://www.getdigitalradio.com/whats-on-dab/in-your-area

    Can you use your existing FM or TV aerial?

    It’s unlikely, but worth a try. For best results a DAB aerial is recommended.

    Where can you get a DAB+ Solution?

    Here at Xtrons, we provide two solutions for DAB+. Whilst some of our units have a built-in DAB+ tuner, others will accept a compact external DAB+ device to be connected, like the USBDAB01 or the DAB01.

    DAB01

    Digital Audio Broadcasting box

    USBDAB01

    Digital Audio Broadcasting USB

     

    How does the external DAB+ device work?

    The Xtrons Dab+ device is compatible with an ever-increasing range of Android units. It’s as simple as connecting the device through the USB Port of the head unit, placing the antenna in the optimal position and click the DAB+ icon on the head unit. You could watch our installation video for the USB receiver stick, if you’re still unsure.
