VOXX Electronics Corporation (VEC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced the expansion of their Mobile Video line up to now include 8-inch Active Seat-Back Systems. These new systems add to an already expansive line of true custom 7” and 8” headrest solutions for in-vehicle rear seat entertainment.

“We have been a leader in rear seat entertainment for close to 15 years and continue to focus our efforts on developing new innovative ways to improve the backseat experience for passengers. Our newest addition of the 8-inch active seat-back systems integrates tablet technology duplicating content available on any portable device while still utilizing DVD capabilities; delivering maximum connectivity to consumers,” said Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics Corporation. “These systems, like all of our headrest and active seatback Mobile Video products, comply with ridge OE standards while adding style and sophistication to the design and manufacturing process.”
