Headplay to launch virtual 52-inch visor screen

updated 03:20 pm EDT, Fri March 16, 2007

Headplay Personal Cinema

Headplay has announced its Personal Cinema System. Composed of three parts, the unit creates the equivalent of a 52-inch screen six feet away through its goggles, serving as an alternative to seatback screens on passenger planes or for viewing at home.

What makes this different from other systems that have tried the approach before is a breakout box dubbed the Liberator, Headplay notes. Besides allowing both PCs and TVs to attach to the visor, it has a video decoding engine that plays photos or videos directly from one of several inputs: a Dock Connector handles video directly from iPods, while full and mini USB ports as well as a CompactFlash card slot handle input from cameras. RCA and S-video jacks accept most analog video sources.

The PCS also includes a distinctive remote. Titled the Navigator, the device lets the wearer manage content on some digital playback sources and also doubles as a headphone jack for the supplied earbuds or another outside speaker system.

Headplay anticipates delivering the PCS as a bundle in June for $499. [via CNET]
