Turn your vehicle into a personal movie theater! Clarion designs its audio/video products for high performance, and the VMA7191 is no exception. This 7" color LCD monitor employs a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) active matrix display to enhance definition and improve contrast and color.

You can select between 16:9 and 4:3 screen formats, and the front panel control toggles through brightness, contrast, tint, and color so you can tweak the video image to your liking. Two RCA composite video inputs offer flexibility when connecting a multi-source system. The built-in remote eye on the monitor works directly with a Clarion video cassette recorder for system convenience.

Features

Color LCD: The VMA7191 is a TFT active matrix color LCD that delivers a striking picture and superior image resolution.

Applications: This LCD monitor will work with any video source with an RCA composite video output. When used with a Clarion mobile VCR and/or TV tuner, each component can be controlled by its respective remote when pointed at the IR eye on this monitor. 

Compatibility with Optional Video Consoles: The optional Clarion consoles are designed to house the VMA7191 monitor at an optimal viewing angle for rear seat passengers. The consoles are styled to match the color and texture of the materials used in your vehicle, they fit between the front seats, and they require no vehicle modifications. If a console or monitor housing (see below) is not available for your vehicle, then custom work will be needed to install this monitor.

Compatibility with Optional Monitor Housings: The optional Clarion monitor housings are designed as add-ons to the existing factory consoles of certain vehicles, and they permit monitor viewing by rear seat passengers. The monitor housings are styled to match the colors and materials of the factory consoles to which they attach. If a monitor housing or console (see above) is not available for your vehicle, then custom work will be needed to install this monitor.

Viewing Angle: The recommended viewing angle of the monitor is 15°-35° vertical and 55°-55° degrees horizontal.

On Screen Display: Displays the on-screen menus of the video sources connected to the monitor.
