BMW Theater Screen Revealed, New Experience For Rear Seats

Author: |

With its new Theater Screen, which was revealed at CES 2022, BMW is setting a new standard for rear-seat entertainment. The huge display has a diagonal measurement of 31.0 inches (78.74 cm) and can display information of up to 8K quality. There's a lot more to be thrilled about than simply widescreen. Amazon Fire TV is included in this smart monitor.

The Theater Screen extends from the roof, the sun blinds slide into position, and the ambient lighting dims the interior when rear passengers activate it. In addition, Hans Zimmer, the Academy Award-winning composer, creates a bespoke sound experience. Aspect ratios of 16:9, 21:9, and even 32:9 are available to viewers.

The content is streamed through a 5G connection in the car. There's also an HDMI port, which might be used to connect a Playstation 5 or Xbox Series X to play games while on the road.

Because there's Bowers & Wilkins 4D surround sound with 30 speakers and 1,500 watts of power, your material should sound fantastic as well. There are even speakers built into the seatbacks so you can feel the music. A mode can send as much sound as possible into the back passenger compartment to prevent disturbing the driver. If annoying the person behind the wheel is a big problem, passengers can also utilize headphones.

Passengers can utilize the infotainment system's control menu or the touch control panels incorporated into the rear door handles.

This fits very nicely with BMW's CES concept of generating emotion via technology. They've also added additional My Modes like Expressive and Relax to the mix.

BMW hasn't said which production car would be the first to incorporate the Theater Screen, but we expect it to arrive this year.
