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. The company hosted seminars exploring how DVD-Audio will specifically apply to and benefit the automobile industry. "Vehicle manufacturers have powerful influence on consumer acceptance of new trends for in-vehicle entertainment," said Doug Pergament, Executive Director, PAEC.

"A Beautiful ...
