Audio-Video 2-DIN Head Units now Available from Alpine Electronics

Back January 10, 2012

These units offer high-resolution screens along with full audio and video capabilities

Torrance, Calif. (Jan. 10, 2012) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. introduces two new 2-DIN audio-video head units for 2012. Both models have 6.1-inch touch screens for audio and video entertainment. Alpine will debut both units during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Jan. 10-13, 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“We know some consumers want the audio and video benefits of a 2-DIN receiver, but do not need the navigation system which often comes with this type of product,” said Steve Crawford, vice president and general manager, aftermarket business unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “2-DIN head units are a growing segment in the aftermarket, and we are excited to bring these premium solutions to market.”

The IVE-W530 and IVE-W535HD offer full VGA high-resolution screens and DVD slots. Both offer Advanced Passenger Control Mode, which allows passengers to stream audio from any smartphone for playback through the vehicle’s sound system. Both units will also have an App Mode setting, which will allow for basic control of popular music and video iPhone® apps directly from the screen (available in August). The IVE-W530 features Bluetooth® wireless technology with audio streaming, three pre-amp outputs, and a 3-band parametric EQ.

The IVE-W535HD is compatible with multiple digital audio sources. Pandora® internet radio control is available via iPhone, Android™ and BlackBerry® devices, and includes thumbs up/down ratings and new station creation. The IVE-W535HD comes with built-in HD Radio™, including a unique feature called Smart Reception Management that improves transitions between the HD Radio signal and analog FM signal in areas where the digital signal may be weak. It is also compatible with SiriusXM, using the SXV200 tuner (sold separately, XM subscription required). The IVE-W535HD has advanced Bluetooth wireless technology that offers easy and secure device pairing, and specially tuned audio for better sound quality of calls and streaming audio.
