Winner of a 2004 Consumer Electronics Show Innovations Award for excellence in design and engineering, Alpine’s groundbreaking IVA-D300 DVD receiver offers PulseTouchâ„¢ technology, a system of vibrations and sound that simulates the feel of real buttons and sliders on a screen that’s completely flat. It even simulates different sizes and contours for different buttons, so you’ll be able to whip through the system without taking your eyes off the road.
When you’re parked (with the emergency brake engaged), you can use the 7" LCD as a display for your DVD movies and videos (it’ll play DVD-Rs and DVD-RWs, as well as your conventional, store-bought discs). PulseTouch offers direct control of DVD menu options — pop a DVD in, and you’ll be able to navigate through its options by simply touching the screen.
The IVA-D300’s PulseTouch Display is easier to use than any other touch panel on the market. When tapping, holding, sliding or touching where there are no commands, You get a different feel at you finger tips.
The Menu locations and button positions for different components are always in the same place. This smart layout of buttons, together with their tactical response, ensures that users can quickly and easily find controls without even looking at the screen. The IVA-D300 can command a wide range of Touch Control Ready components, for easy control of an entire system.
Unlike traditional screens that simply emulate remote control operation, forcing you to move a cursor to select what you want on the on-screen menu, then push a play button, DVD Menu Direct Touch Control allows you to simply touch the menu option directly to engage it. Since the options on different DVDs are in different places, this is the most intuitive and fastest method for controlling DVDs.
It supports a wide variety of formats, including discs loaded with MP3 or WMA files. The receiver features plenty of power, as well as the potent Bass Engine Plus, which lets you adjust the tone of your music and movie soundtracks until it sounds just right. MediaXpander restores vitality and fullness that’s often lost in the compression process, especially in your music files.
With previous on-screen displays, images were in the form of 512 characters, for text display only. The IVA-D300 uses an additional ROM that contains 2, 048 characters, including pictodata. This makes it possible to form high quality images that are nearly as those of the industry-leading IVA-D901.
