two A/V inputs, built-in IR transmitter, and headphone output. One headrest monitor also contains
a built-in DVD player, mini-USB (type-B) port & SD card slot for multimedia playback. Each monitor has
independent A/V inputs, so they can be used to display
different sources. There is an AV output to connect the monitors together, so
you can also display the same video on each headrest monitor. NTSC and PAL
signals are compatible.
