Clarion again succeeds in fitting more value into less space. The innovative mechanism-free design of FZ409A gives them superior vibration resistance and durability in the harsh physical environment of the car, leaving plenty of room for Bluetooth® and many other features.
The absence of any disc drive or other moving mechanical parts associated with it means the main unit is able to offer superior resistance to shocks and vibrations, and will suffer less wear over time. This reliability and durability makes it ideal for the punishing physical environment of the car, and more than ready to perform as a main unit in advanced in-vehicle entertainment systems.
The FZ409A simplify operation so that now it is just a matter of touching a few iconised illuminated capacitive sensor buttons. This is an example of the intuitive H.M.I. design that minimises the number of buttons while maximising functionality. Since only relevant button icons appear for the task at hand, button-hunting is eliminated and access is more direct and responsive.
The FZ409A is a crystallisation of some of the most advanced technologies in car entertainment today. The screen uses an OEL (Organic Electro Luminescence) display to deliver images smooth as silk while saving space. Combined with advanced design, this technology is one of the ways that Clarion is taking car entertainment to the next generation.
