Royal Philips Electronics has unveiled the latest addition to its line of products geared toward mobile entertainment applications. Featuring a PAL/NTSC auto-detect/switch, the company's digitally based thin-film transistor (TFT) video display module is claimed to be the first-ever to automatically detect and switch between the world's two major video-signal standards - NTSC and PAL.

Incorporated into rear-seat automotive entertainment (RSE) systems, the module will provide flexibility and cost savings for OEMs and automotive integrators, enabling them to use a single RSE system regardless of the geographic region for which the car is intended.

The video display module is a 7-inch digital TFT with QVGA resolution. Its built-in TV decoder can read a range of input signals (RBG-analog, CVBS, YUV, and YC) to accommodate changing customer applications. Parameters such as color, tint, brightness and luminance are controlled via a single LIN or I?C data-control protocol. This feature helps extend the cost savings afforded by the PAL/NTSC auto detect/switch, which requires no additional software or user interface to activate. Other features include wide viewing angles, luminance of 450cd/m?, a self-heating backlight and an integrated inverter.
