About the Alpine IVA-W200

Matt Freeman
Alpine proudly offers you the ideal mobile video solution for the 4" tall dash opening in your vehicle — the IVA-W200 DVD player. Its high-tech 6.5" video screen sits flush in your dash, sporting a sleek, factory look. You command the system with Alpine's impressive PulseTouch™ controls — even though you're tapping a flat screen, it feels like you're using real buttons and sliders. You can whip through your system menus without taking your eyes off the road.

Alpine proudly offers you the ideal mobile video solution for the 4" tall dash opening in your vehicle — the IVA-W200 DVD player. Its high-tech 6.5" video screen sits flush in your dash, sporting a sleek, factory look. You command the system with Alpine's impressive PulseTouch™ controls — even though you're tapping a flat screen, it feels like you're using real buttons and sliders. You can whip through your system menus without taking your eyes off the road.

Lots of great-sounding entertainment
The IVA-W200 pretty much plays it all. When you're parked, watch your favorite DVD movies on the vivid display. You can also play your standard CDs, plus all your custom, home-burned mixes. And you can burn up to 100 hours' worth on a recordable DVD and play them on this versatile stereo. Alpine's QuickSearch™ feature helps you find your favorite songs and artists quickly. Plus, you can enjoy the high-end playback of DVD-Audio discs, too.

The IVA-W200's premium processors deliver rich, full sound that's a delight to the ears. And Alpine's Bass Engine® sound controls let you adjust the tone to your liking. You can even create custom sound settings at Alpine's website, then save them to disc so you can reset them whenever you need to.

System expansion
You also get a laundry list of options for system expansion. Add an Alpine satellite radio or HD Radio tuner, and you'll be able to hear the best in radio entertainment. Don't leave your iPod® at home — the optional Alpine Full Speed™ iPod adapter lets you operate just about every playback function with the touchscreen controls. Connect an Alpine navigation system for accurate turn-by-turn guidance on the road, and hook up a rear-view camera for a clear view of what's behind when you back up.

If your cell phone has Bluetooth® capability, Alpine's optional Bluetooth adapter lets you place and receive calls without touching your phone. Caller ID info shows up on screen, and you'll hear the other person's voice come through your car speakers.

You can add more power to your system by connecting component amplifiers to the three sets of preamp outputs. And you can even get into real movie-theater sound by adding Alpine's optional surround-sound processor, plus an amplified center channel and subwoofer. The processor decodes the surround soundtracks from your DVDs, and sends all the information to the right speakers.

Input and Output Notes


Mobile Multimedia Station: Alpine's line of Ai-NET Mobile Multimedia Stations allow you to connect and control a wide range of in-car audio and visual systems, such as DVD/CD/MP3 changers, rear seat monitors, and navigation systems, from an in-dash control center.

Motorized, 6.5" Wide Touchscreen Monitor: The IVA-W200 has a motorized 6.5" wide, touchscreen monitor (with 16:9 aspect ratio) that serves as a video monitor and system information display.

PulseTouch: The unit's touchscreen features "PulseTouch," which provides tactile feedback, along with audible and visual confirmation, to the user to confirm the input of commands. It uses different vibrations and pressures that simulate what it feels like when you tap a real button, hold a button down, move a slider or touch where no screen commands exist.

Monitor Angle Adjustment: You can adjust the monitor's angle for better visibility. You can choose one of four angles.

Video Lock-out Feature: For safety and legal reasons, the IVA-W200 features a video lock-out feature to prevent the viewing of a video source while the vehicle is in motion. To watch a video source, the vehicle must be parked with the ignition in the ACC or ON position. The vehicle's parking brake must be engaged, disengaged, and engaged again while the foot brake is held in.

Illumination Control: You can select one of the following dimmer settings:

  • Auto: adjusts the brightness of the background illumination of the monitor depending on the ambient light in your vehicle
  • On: keeps the background illumination of the monitor dark
  • Off: keeps the background illumination of the monitor bright

Background Screen: You have a choice of 2 different background textures. These backgrounds are visible when a CD, MP3/WMA, or the tuner is selected. When "Auto Background" is activated, the background texture will change each time the ignition key is turned off and turned on again.

Display Modes: You can select one of the following display modes:

  • Mode 1 (Wide): evenly stretches a 4:3 picture horizontally to fit the wide screen monitor
  • Mode 2 (Cinema): displays a 4:3 picture by stretching out the picture horizontally and vertically. This mode is good for displaying a cinema-type picture with a 16:9 ratio.
  • Mode 3 (Normal): displays a 4:3 picture at the center of the screen with a vertical black band at each side

Blackout Display Mode: When the Blackout mode is activated, the display turns off to reduce power consumption. The additional power made available by turning off the display helps enhance sound quality.

Rear Entertainment Function: The rear entertainment function independently routes different sources to the front and rear in a vehicle. For example, while listening to the radio or other audio source in the front, a DVD can be enjoyed in the rear with an optional rear monitor and headphones; the rear zone signals are passed by RCA composite video and stereo RCA preamp audio connections.

Simultaneous Function: This function allows you to watch the video portion of one source, while listening to the audio portion of another source.

MP3/WMA Playback: This unit can play CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs containing MP3 and WMA files recorded using the ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level 2 formats; constant and variable bit rates from 32 kbps to 320 kbps are supported for MP3 and 32 kbps to 320 kbps for WMA. Discs recorded using Joliet, Romeo, or other ISO 9660 compliant formats can be played, but file and folder names may not be displayed correctly. CD-ROM XA, Mixed Mode CD, Enhanced CD (CD-Extra) and multi-session recordings are supported, but recordings made using Track At Once or packet writing cannot be correctly played back. Discs containing both standard CD audio and MP3 data can be played; the unit may be set to play only the CD audio tracks or both types of tracks. ID3 tag v1 and WMA tag are supported; track title, artist name and album name ID3 tag data can be displayed.

Bass Engine: Bass Engine functions provide control over your system, so you can tailor the sound to your personal tastes. Bass Engine includes the following functions:

  • Bass Control:
    • Bass Center Frequency: Select from 60Hz, 70Hz, 80Hz, 90Hz, 100Hz, 130Hz, 150Hz, or 200Hz
    • Bass Band Width: Select from 1 (narrow) to 4 (wide)
    • Bass Level: Select from -7 to +7
  • Treble Control:
    • Treble Center Frequency: Select from 10kHz, 12.5kHz, 15kHz, or 17.5kHz
    • Treble Level: -7 to +7

Interrupt Feature (NAV.MIX) With an Alpine navigation system connected to the IVA-W200, the voice guidance of the navigation system will be mixed with the radio or CD audio. You can adjust the volume level of the voice guidance. If you use this unit connected to an external audio processor, use the built in amplifier. You cannot use this function with an external amplifier.

iPod Full Speed: When used with the optional KCE-422i Alpine Full Speed Connection cable (item number 500KCE422i), your receiver can interface with any Apple iPod with a dock connector. You can quickly and easily search through all of the music contained on your iPod through Playlist, Artist, or Album searches. You can view Artist, Album, Song Information and Song Number right on the head unit's display. The IVA-W200 will not navigate or display video files from video capable iPods. The unit can be used with the following iPod versions:

  • Third generation iPod: Ver.2.3
  • Fourth generation iPod: Ver.3.0.2
  • iPod photo: Ver.1.0
  • iPod mini: Ver.1.3
  • iPod nano: Ver.1.0
  • iPod video

Direct Search: When operating your iPod through the Full Speed connection, you can use the Direct Search function in Playlist, Artist, Album, or Song mode to quickly locate your music. Using an onscreen direct search bar, you can quickly jump over a designated percentage of your song content.

Satellite Radio Ready: There are several options for connecting an optional XM or SIRIUS Satellite Radio receiver to the IVA-W200. To receive XM Satellite Radio, you can connect the optional Terk XMD1000 Universal tuner (209XMD1000) and the Terk XM Direct Smart Digital Adapter for Alpine (209XMDALP1). To receive SIRIUS Satellite Radio, you can connect the optional SIRIUS tuner for Alpine (item number 607SIRALP1) directly to the head unit. A portable satellite radio receiver can be connected to the head unit via an auxiliary input adapter. A compatible antenna and a subscription are also required to receive satellite radio programming from SIRIUS or XM.

HD Radio Ready: The IVA-W200 can receive HD Radio signals when the TUA-T550HD HD Radio Tuner Module (item number 500TUAT550) is connected via the Ai-NET connector. While receiving HD Radio, the unit can automatically switch between the analog and digital signals, or you can manually switch to the analog signals exclusively.

Bluetooth Interface Ready: With the optional KCA-100BT Bluetooth adapter (item number 500KCA1BT), you can make and receive calls hands-free on your Bluetooth-capable cellular phone, and communicate through an included microphone and your vehicle's speakers.

USB Adapter Ready: With the optional KCA-620M USB adapter (item number 500KCA620M), you can connect and control MP3 players that have USB connections. In addition, if you have MP3s stored on a USB thumb drive, you can select and play those files from the head unit.

Auxiliary Input Ready: With the addition of the optional KCA-121B Ai-NET/RCA interface cable, the KCA-801B auxiliary input adapter, or the KCA-410C Versatile-Link Terminal, the audio from an auxiliary source can be played through this unit. When the KCA-121B interface cable is used, a CD changer cannot be connected to the head unit; the KCA-801B auxiliary input adapter allows you to connect an auxiliary source and an Ai-NET changer to the head unit. The KCA-410C Versatile-Link Terminal allows you to feed audio from up to two auxiliary sources and two Ai-NET CD changers to the head unit.

Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The IVA-W200 has a "steering remote control" jack on the back panel. When used with the optional SWI-ALP interface (item number127SWIALP), you can retain the use of your factory steering wheel and/or rear seat radio controls when replacing the factory head unit in select vehicles. The SWI-ALP is compatible with over 95% of the vehicles made from 1986 to the present. Compatible vehicles include many Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hummer, Infiniti, Isuzu, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Pontiac, Saab, Saturn, Suzuki, Toyota, and Volkswagen vehicles and Harley Davidson motorcycles. Please consult "What Fits My Car" to see if your vehicle is compatible.

Visual EQ Mode: You can select one of the following preset modes suitable for the subject image:

  • Night Mode: suitable for movies in which dark scenes frequently appear
  • Soft: suitable for CGs and animated films

External Audio Processor: When an optional Alpine external audio processor is connected to this unit, you can operate it from the unit. Dozens of settings can be adjusted, including crossover adjustment, time correction, phase switching, EQ adjustments, surround sound adjustments, and speaker levels.

DVD/Video CD Controls

DVD Menu Direct Touch Control: The unique PulseTouch touchscreen allows you to activate selections on the DVD main menu by directly touching the screen on the desired selection instead of navigating choices using cursors.

DVD Control Menu: During DVD playback, the control menu is accessible by touching the screen. The 2-page menu appears at the bottom of the screen allowing you to skip tracks forward or backward, stop or pause playback, access the DVD menu, change the audio language, subtitle language, camera angles, and change the display modes. You can also access a "10-key" numeric keyboard for direct chapter access. If desired, you can access a more traditional cursor-type menu for DVD control.

Dolby Digital and DTS Compatibility: When the optical digital output (standard Toslink) on the rear of the head unit is connected to an optional Alpine digital audio processor, you can enjoy Dolby Digital and DTS surround.

Pre-stop Function: When the Pre-stop function is used, the position at which playback is stopped is stored in the memory, and playback resumes from that position.

Step/Slow Motion Playback: When a DVD or Video CD is in the pause mode, you may move forward through the program being played one step (frame) at a time, or in one of the following slow motion speeds: 1/2 or 1/8. When playing a DVD, you can use slow motion playback in the reverse direction.

Fast-Forward/Fast-Reverse: While a DVD or Video CD is playing, you can view the program in double speed in either direction by touching and holding the fast-forward or fast-reverse button on the touchscreen for more than 1 second. If held for 5 or more seconds, playback at 8x speed in the selected direction will begin. If held for 10 or more seconds, playback at 21x speed will begin.

Repeat Playback: When playing a DVD, you can repeat the current title or the current chapter. When playing a Video CD, you can repeat the current track or the entire disc.

Multi-Angle Display: This function allows you to choose the viewing angle of scenes that were shot from a number of different angles. 

Note: This function is limited to DVDs recorded with multiple camera angles.

Parental Lock: Parental Lock allows you to restrict the playback of DVDs that are unsuitable for younger viewers. You can select a parental lock rating from 0-8, which is protected by a 4-digit password.

Digital Output: You can select a digital output setting of Auto or LPCM. When set to Auto, the digital output is switched automatically according to the type of audio signals being played. When set to LPCM, the audio signals recorded on the disc are converted to 48kHz/16-bit (for DVDs) or 44.1kHz (for Video CDs and CDs) linear PCM audio signals for output.

Controls for Add-on Components: The IVA-W200 can control the following optional add-on components: Navigation System, HD Radio tuner, DVD changer, CD changer, XM or SIRIUS receiver, and audio processor.

Changer Controls

Compatibility: This unit is compatible with 6- and 12-disc Alpine Ai-NET CD changers; also, this unit can control Alpine Ai-NET CD/MP3 changers and DVD changers. Alpine M-Bus CD changers cannot be controlled by this unit.

Multiple Changer Control: With the addition of an optional adapter, more than one CD changer can be controlled. One KCA-400C adapter will allow you to connect up to 4 CD changers, and two KCA-400C adapters will allow you to connect up to a total of 6 CD changers. You can also use the KCA-410C Versatile Link adapter to connect 2 changers and 2 auxiliary input sources.

Input and Output Notes

Optical Digital Output: There is a standard Toslink optical digital output on the back of the monitor for connecting the unit to an optional audio processor.

Auxiliary Input: Stereo RCA jacks and an RCA composite video jack are provided for connecting an external video source such as a VCR, DVD player, or video game.

Auxiliary Output: Stereo RCA jacks and an RCA composite video jack are provided for feeding A/V signals to an optional video monitor. When the Rear Entertainment Function is used and these jacks are connected to a rear seat entertainment system (e.g. a rear seat monitor and wireless headphones), your rear seat passengers can view/listen to a different source than the one selected for the front passengers.

Navigation Input: The IVA-W200 provides a 13-pin RGB jack for connecting an optional Alpine navigation system.

Preamp Inputs/Outputs: When the system switch is in the Normal position, the IVA-W200 provides preamp outputs for front, rear, and subwoofer channels. When the system switch is in the EQ/DIV position, the front and rear preamp connections operate as inputs, allowing you to connect an optional EQ or audio processor.

Rear Camera Input: A single composite video input is provided for an optional rear-view camera. If a rear-view camera is connected, you should also connect the reverse lead (orange/white wire in the Remote in/out wiring harness) to the vehicle's back-up lamp circuit. When properly connected, the image from the rear-view camera appears on the monitor when the vehicle is shifted into reverse.

Remote In/Out: A 6-pin female Molex jack allows you to connect the remote control plugs from an optional video monitor or TV tuner.

Note: Some optional Alpine monitors have touchscreen controls requiring connection of monitor control wire of the remote harness.

Steering Wheel Remote: A minijack allows you to connect the optional SWI-ALP interface (item number127SWIALP).
