Comcast, Delphi Join Forces to Develop Device That Shows Video Content in Cars

Jan 5, 2005  •  Post A Comment

In another sign of the growing interest in car-based entertainment, cable giant Comcast is teaming with car-parts maker Delphi Corp. to develop an in-car system that would allow for the transfer to and playback of video content from a cable set-top box.

As part of the agreement, Delphi will build a device that can upload and playback video content, while Comcast will explore ways to provide access to programming. The companies expect it will take between six months and 18 months to develop a solution.

The Comcast-Delphi alliance, announced at the Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas this week, comes the same day that satellite radio company Sirius Satellite Radio said it was working with software giant Microsoft to offer two or three channels of video programming in cars.
