Mobile video or rear seat entertainment is a category that Auto Image has been selling since its inception in the late 1990s. People from all over the Jersey Shore come to one of our three convenient locations for our products and installations in this category.
Rear Seat Entertainment
If you have ever had the opportunity to ride in a vehicle with a rear seat entertainment system, you already know how enjoyable they are to use. If not, here’s a testimonial from one of our clients: “We normally take a family vacation every year, and the drive can be nine to 10 hours. After getting a mobile video system installed, our three children didn’t start asking if we were almost there for eight whole hours! It sure made the drive a lot more enjoyable.”
A rear seat entertainment system is one or more screens that can be viewed by rear seat passengers, designed to entertain your passengers while you’re driving. Wireless headphones allow your passengers to listen to their own sounds while you get to enjoy your favorite music. Everyone wins! These systems come in handy on short rides to the store, on long trips or whenever you need to kill time in your vehicle. Our systems help melt away time as well as keep people from getting restless. Have you ever experienced restless children in your vehicle? If so, come see us – we can solve that problem.
Mobile Video Solutions
Once you have decided to get a system installed, it is important to know the options available to you. Here are our most popular video solutions.
Overhead Video Systems
Overhead video systems are where it all started. These use an overhead monitor that is securely mounted to the ceiling. The units have integrated DVD players as well as aux inputs, making it easy for you to plug multiple sources such as games, tablets and phones into them. A transmitter is included so passengers can wear wireless headphones and set their own volume levels individually. All the while, the driver and front seat passenger get to enjoy peace and quiet.
We also design the systems so they can play the audio into the factory stereo system, in the event you want to play the sound in that manner. Our most popular screen size is a 10” unit, making it easy for people in the third row to see it, should you have that option.
Headrest Video Systems
Headrest video systems are another option, and they get more popular as time goes on. They come in three distinct designs.
Custom-fit replacement headrests are a popular option because they look factory-installed. We order headrests for you that include material that matches the original headrest, including stitch color, piping, and even the grain of the vinyl or leather. Built into the headrest is an LCD monitor, up to two DVD players, auxiliary inputs and USB ports. You also get wireless headphones like those in our overhead systems.
Seatback-based systems are used on vehicles with active head restraints. Some newer vehicles use a headrest that actually moves in an accident, so the factory headrest has to stay intact. In these vehicles, the active seatback system includes a monitor and an integrated DVD that are installed directly behind the headrest. While everyone will know this is an add-on, the slim design, matching material on the system and custom bracketry makes for a wonderful solution for this type of vehicle. They play the sound in the same manner as the headrest systems described above.
Value Headrest Systems
Universal headrest systems are for value-conscious clients. They come in black, tan and gray, and give you the opportunity to have a rear seat entertainment system at a lower installed price.
Game Console Integration
A popular option for all of these systems is a power inverter so your video game console can easily work in your vehicle. If you have a gamer in your family, this may be perfect for you.

Once you decide on the system that is right for you, it has to be installed. This is another area where our staff really shines, since we have the best-trained technicians in the area.
