The multimedia system has lost the CD player

General Motors’ new Rear-Seat Media entertainment system ditches DVD and Blu-ray, but supports more modern formats.

Until recently, passengers in the rear seats of American SUVs were forced to carry CDs with them if they wanted to while away the time on the road watching films, however, according to the GM Authority, Chevrolet will no longer support DVD and Blu-ray: a new generation of multimedia Rear-Seat Media, presented at the Tahoe and Suburban, ditched this anachronism. In return, passengers are offered the ability to connect to media players such as Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon TV and Sling TV.

For this, the Rear-Seat Media entertainment system is equipped with USB-C and HDMI connectors, and also allows you to mirror the smartphone screen using Android Miracast technology. On the backs of the front seats there are two 12.6-inch touchscreens, which, according to the manufacturer’s plan, will be quite enough for passengers in the third row of seats to watch movies. Displays can be tilted for added convenience. In addition, the new “multimedia” is equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi access point.
