At the recently concluded SAE-CEA Digital Car Conference in Detroit, representatives of the recording industry joined Panasonic in hailing DVD-Audio as the in-car music delivery system of the future. Panasonic Automotive Electronics Company (PAEC) used the conference and exhibition to introduce and demonstrate its first mobile DVD-Audio systems for OEM distribution.
