Jaguar Cars is pleased to announce the release of its innovative rear-seat entertainment technology known as the Rear Screen Connectivity System (RSCS) – an AV panel that allows rear-seat passengers to connect any digital device that has an audio/visual output. This system is available as a retailer fitted accessory only.

"With the integration of the Rear Screen Connectivity System, it’s the ultimate technology in vehicle personalization," said Brenda Fevrier-Luhs, Jaguar North America Vehicle Accessories Sales & Marketing. "Ideally suited to satisfy all rear-seat passengers and keep them occupied throughout their journey in a Jaguar, the RSCS is extremely versatile and provides a luxury feature not available in all mid-size vehicles. We are the first OE to introduce this scan disc/card reader technology before any other luxury automotive manufacturer."

The RSCS consists of two seven-inch LCD screens integrated into the driver and front passenger headrests along with two dual-band infrared wireless headphones. It offers complete versatility allowing rear-seat passengers to connect any digital device from a DVD player to an MP3 player. It also features a slot for memory cards that can be used to for digital photos, videos, pocket PCs, and certain game consoles. Essentially, it’s a "futureproof" system with an ability to work with any portable device and effortlessly upgrade to a new device when needed.

Located on the center console and facing the rear-seat passengers, the system supports two inputs. This allows for two separate devices to be used simultaneously and thus, provides passengers with the freedom to choose their own entertainment.

The RSCS is currently available now for ordering and will fit current model year X-TYPEs, as well as past model year 2004 and 2005

X-TYPES. It also comes in various trim colors matching the vehicle’s interior. The suggested retail price is $1,499.00 USD ($1,999.00 Canadian) plus installation. The RSCS for S-TYPE is targeted for August 2006 availability.
