Mercedes-Benz Offers Splitview LCD on 2010 S-Class Models

December 19, 2008

MONTVALE, NJ – Mercedes-Benz is looking to make an even greater impact in safety technology with new features designed to actively prevent car collisions, according to the manufacturer. In its latest system, Splitview Technology, drivers are able to navigate the brand’s COMAND central computer system while, at the same time on the same screen, front passengers can watch TV or a DVD.

Built in collaboration with Bosch, Mercedes-Benz engineers developed a centrally located eight-inch screen capable of dual image display by placing TF-LCD pixels adjacent to each other. A filter then divides the pixels in a fashion allowing each passenger to view their given portion — meaning the driver can follow a navigation map while the passenger can check out the latest Hollywood flick. For further privacy, wireless headphones ensure neither gets distracted.

Mercedes will first offer Splitview on the 2010 S-Class, with other models likely adopting the technology in the months following.
