LAS VEGAS – January 5, 2015 – JVC Mobile is presenting its 2015 product line at International CES, January 6-9. Booth No. 1711 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center highlights 21 new products that incorporate the latest technology and convenience benefits to create a more entertaining driving experience. Sixteen new in-dash receivers, four speakers and a subwoofer amplifier bolster an already impressive lineup of more than 60 products built to perform at any price point.
All of the new receivers replace 2014 models with tasteful, stylish design and improved ergonomics. “We wanted to simplify interaction with our receivers to allow a safer and more intuitive touch experience with each unit,” said Daniel Jones, product and marketing manager for the company’s car electronics sector. “With vehicle dashboards becoming more complex as safety and driver information features take up space and focus, we wanted to create a great-looking display and control surface that minimizes distraction.”
LAS VEGAS – January 8, 2015 – JVC Mobile brought a fresh series of speakers and subwoofer-handling power to its booth at International CES, Jan 6-9. The HX series, which consists of 4 models, gives consumers a high-quality, factory replacement solution. The new KS-AX201 amplifier builds on proven technology to create affordable low-frequency power.
Designed to supplant most factory speakers as well as fit custom locations, the HX series drops into standard-sized openings to improve low-end performance and voice clarity. Each driver features a carbon mica cone that responds accurately to lower frequencies thanks to its lightness and flexibility. The midrange is bolstered by a pulp cone with fixed surround, and all speakers include Polyetherimide tweeters for high strength and temperature tolerance. The entire speaker is anchored by a highly responsive single-roll rubber surround.
LONG BEACH, CALIF. – October 20, 2014 – JVC Mobile, worldwide provider of innovative and value-driven car entertainment products, announced it is shipping four in-dash receivers from its anticipated 20 new-for-2015 products. The immediate availability of two multimedia centers and a pair of CD receivers gives retailers and consumers the latest technology and smartphone integration in time for the holiday season.
As next-generation models of the current KW-V10 and KW-V20BT receivers, the new KW-V11 (MSRP $299.95) and KW-V21BT (MSRP $349.95) double-DIN units feature a stylish, symmetrical design that accommodates a larger, 6.2-inch WVGA touch screen. A fully reimagined touch panel allows users to place their favorite function tiles on the screen for a customized control experience. The screen also includes Monitor Touch Control, so users can adjust volume by performing a circular motion on screen and select media by swiping up/down or left/right with their finger. Additionally, each receiver can be controlled with factory-equipped steering wheel buttons using a third-party adapter, or with the optional RM-RK258 wireless remote control.
LONG BEACH, CALIF. – December 23, 2014 – JVC Mobile invites new and prospective retailers, as well as industry media, to visit its product showcase at the 2015 International CES, January 6-9. The renowned producer of high-quality, value-conscious electronics for the automotive aftermarket will showcase its 2015 product line in Booth 1711 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We anticipate an exciting year for the JVC Mobile brand,” said Daniel Jones, product and marketing manager for the company’s car electronics sector. “With more than 20 new products adding to our extensive lineup in 2015 and a stronger focus on building our brand within the specialist retail community, our goal is to exceed the expectations of our retail network while making new dealers and consumers take a fresh look at JVC Mobile.”
LAS VEGAS – January 7, 2015 – Most new vehicles come from the factory with built-in Bluetooth, satellite radio, input jacks for portable devices, and direct USB connections for iPhone or memory stick integration. Drivers who want to keep their older vehicles and get this new technology now have a cost-effective solution in JVC Mobile’s new KD-R960BTS CD receiver.
“Statistics show that people are keeping their cars longer on average, and are willing to upgrade them rather than part with them for newer vehicles,” said Daniel Jones, product and marketing manager for JVC Mobile. “The KD-R960BTS is the perfect solution for consumers who want to make their older vehicles new again with the same features that come standard from the dealership lot.”
LAS VEGAS – January 6, 2015 – JVC Mobile debuted the flagship of its five new-for-2015 multimedia receivers at the 2015 International CES. The KW-V51BT meets consumer need for a high-quality, touch-enabled unit that can be the center of entertainment for built-in and connected media.
“The KW-V51BT shows that you can have a truly connected system that takes the focus off the smartphone and delivers complete media access through the receiver,” said Daniel Jones, product and marketing manager for JVC Mobile. “The improvements of this year’s model keep up with changing technology and give our customers a quality multimedia experience.”
LONG BEACH, CA – March 12, 2015 – JVC Mobile, worldwide provider of quality audio systems and components, announced it is shipping its flagship marine / motorsports CD receiver, which was introduced at the 2015 International CES.
