At the 2022 Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show, the Bavarian carmaker unveiled the new BMW Theatre Screen: a 31-inch widescreen display with 8K resolution, designed especially for rear passengers.
The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is in full swing in Las Vegas. On the occasion of the largest trade fair dedicated to technology, carmakers crowded to present various electrical concepts, but also technologies that will be found in the future on cars.
BMW has decided to change the way the rear passenger’s multimedia system is viewed and has come to CES with the so-called Theatre Screen.
It is a 31-inch widescreen display with smart TV features and up to 8K resolution, on which the rear seats can watch (via Fire TV) movies or TV series and listen to music and various podcasts. All this thanks to the collaboration between the BMW Group and Amazon.
Content can be rendered 16: 9, 21: 9 and even 32: 9. The display resolution is approximately 8,000 pixels x 2,000 pixels, and the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround audio system will complete this experience.
With the activation of the My Mode Theatre function, the BMW Theatre Screen comes out of the ceiling upholstery (on a sound experience signed by Hans Zimmer), the sun visors for the side windows and rear window are closed, and the ambient backlight is reduced.
