Applications: This LCD monitor is designed to be used with Clarion multimedia products, as well as many other mobile audio/video products with RCA composite video outputs. When used with a Clarion mobile VCR and/or TV tuner, each component can be controlled by its respective remote when pointed at the monitor's IR receiver.
Mounting Bracket: The monitor comes equipped with a slim, universal mounting bracket/trim bezel for easy installation. The monitor snaps into place in the bracket, and can easily be removed if necessary. Mounting Bracket Dimensions: Width=7.14", Height=5.32", Overall Depth=1.341", Mounting Depth=0.863", Cutout: 6.558" x 4.75".
