Audiovox intends to bring high definition entertainment to the road with their latest automotive Blu-ray player, the AVDBR1. Out later this spring for $349, the AVDBR1 will usher in a new era of in-car entertainment by offering HDMI, composite and component video connectivity, although viewing 1080p video on a 4″ or even 7″ display isn’t going to do much for the eyes, but at least you do give those Blu-ray discs more viewing time on the go instead of just sitting at home on a shelf, colleting dust. The Audiovox AVDBR1 can be powered using a 2-pin, 12-volt connector, and you can opt to stow it either horizontally or vertically in your vehicle’s cargo area, storage compartment, or under a seat. Of course, it will do standard DVD playback as well if that’s what you want, and with an optional Wi-Fi upgrade and a firmware update which will be made available later this year, the drive will be able to support BD-Live as well.
