BMW plans backseat cinema lounge
Munich: In a bid to offer rear passengers an entertainment experience, leading German luxury car-maker BMW Group has previewed an in-car entertainment system for its future models. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022, the company said that My Mode Theatre transforms the rear of the interior into a private cinema lounge with surround sound and 5G connectivity with a panorama display in 32:9 format.
"We develop immersive, digital experiences for sheer driving pleasure. In Theatre Mode, the rear of the interior is transformed into a private cinema lounge," Frank Weber, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG Development, said in a statement.
"With the 31-inch display, 5G connectivity, 8K resolution, surround sound and individual streaming programme, an unprecedented experience is created that sets new standards for in-car entertainment," Weber added. The large screen with a smart TV function is extended out of the headliner on request by a sophisticated rotary movement on two articulated rails at the sides.
