In-Car Blu-ray Player for 2011: Audiovox AVDBR1

For a few years now we have seen a number of in-car Blu-ray players hit the CES shows, but many of them did not make it to market. So we were surprised that the Audiovox AVDBR1 will be on sale in the spring, with a retail cost of $349.99. However, what I am more surprised of is the fact that Engadget state that it is the “Industry’s first in-car Blu-ray.”

The reason we say this is because back in August 2009 Panasonic revealed the CY-BB1000D; but I cannot be certain if it finally made it to market or not. SlashGear did report that it would be released in September of that year. CNET Reviews did report about the AVDBR1 back in November 2010, so it was certain to make an appearance during CES 2011.

There are a number of places where you will be able to store the Audiovox AVDBR1 in-car Blu-ray player, such as under your seat or any other storage area. There is also room for improvement with the tech as well, as you will be able to use BD-Live for future firmware updates; that is said to be later this year.

We are not convinced why you would need a Blu-ray player in a car; the reason we say this is because most of us will not notice the difference between HD and Standard content on a screen as small as those used for in-car entertainment. So is this the first of its kind, or have there been others before?
