Mercedes-Benz S-Class receives innovative Splitview technology

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Mercedes-Benz is outfitting its future luxury class copies as the first best brand with a display monitor that permits the driver and front passenger to watch two dissimilar programs simultaneously. As the driver is checking the navigation guidelines, the front passenger can sit back and watch a movie on the exact same screen.

This is possible because of the latest SPLITVIEW technology which the Stuttgart premium marquee is featuring in the S-Class for the very first time.

Mercedes-Benz has included the current SPLITVIEW technology designed by Mercedes-Benz and Bosch into the ground-breaking control and monitoring system COMAND, which is found in the middle of the dashboard console. Its large footprint, 8-inch (approx. 20 mm) screen displays a backlighted active matrix color display (TFT-LCD).

This displays two different images at the same time by placing pixels contiguous to each other. A masking filter divides this merged image in such a way that contingent on the seating location, only the pixels composing one or the other image can be viewed. As a consequence, the driver and front passenger can see different images on one and the same monitor simultaneously.

Access to all the information from the control and display system COMAND on the display still remain with the driver, as the front passenger utilizes the remote control to select his own entertainment with DVDs, music videos, or TV channels.

This system is head-phone enabled to avoid distractions to the driver. Like previously, the driver is able to see all the information offered by the COMAND system on the monitor. Mercedes-Benz is featuring the latest SPLITVIEW technology in the S-Class in the summer of 2009 for the very first time.
