Rear seat entertainment

As the name suggests, Rear Seat Entertainment is a multimedia system for the rear seat. The latest version of this system is used in the A8. The backrests of the driver and front-passenger seats each integrate a high-resolution display measuring 10.2 inches diagonally. They can be tilted 10 degrees and are capable of displaying different content. A sensor enables their brightness to adjust automatically to the lighting conditions inside the vehicle. They are controlled via a separate MMI controller in the rear center armrest.

The Rear Seat Entertainment system includes a separate single DVD drive, its own 20 GB hard drive jukebox, two SDHC memory card readers and its own Audi music interface. The system also has full access to the radio, the optional DVD changer, the navigation system, and the TV tuner, whose picture can also be seen in the back while underway. Sound is provided either by the vehicle’s sound system or two sets of headphones, which are connected via Bluetooth. Wired headphones can also be connected.
