Entertainment on the Move

Tuner systems from TE Connectivity enable first-class reception of radio and TV stations and playback of a wide range of entertainment media for vehicle passengers – even at high speeds.

Nowadays, cars must be able to do more than safely bring the driver from A to B.  For a long time now, customers have been looking to their vehicles to provide as much comfort possible – and not only in the luxury car segment. The global demand for multifunctional infotainment systems is accordingly high and extends beyond navigation, radio, mobile communication, CD and DVD or MP3 and MP4. Internet and TV are increasingly helping to make journeys shorter for passengers. The tuner systems from TE Connectivity enable first-class reception of radio and TV stations and playback of a wide range of entertainment media for vehicle passengers – even at high speeds. The reception of broadcasting and mobile data services can be mapped in a single system, in terms of both technology and installation. There are a wide range of possibilities and both areas complement each other excellently.

Radio Tuners

TE Connectivitys HIRSCHMANN MOBILITY tuner systems enable the reception of radio broadcast services, both terrestrial and satellite. We can deliver Radio Tuners in a host of configurations, in nearly any type of vehicle and for every major global and regional standard. Our systems are very flexible to customer layout requirements. We specialize in radio signal processing that yields a clean audio stream for further sound processing. A vehicle’s main infotainment system controls our Radio Tuner and defines what service is received. Our solutions allow the implementation of radio functionality in a very short time frame, and allow our customers to benefit from our deep experience in reception systems.

 

The HIRSCHMANN MOBILITY Radio Tuners are available in different designs, as tuner cards and remote tuner modules. The tuner cards are engineered to be individually integrated in existing head units and to work with the surrounding system. The remote tuner modules can easily be installed stand-alone as a complete reception system at a suitable place in the vehicle. Mounted close to the antenna, the module even offers the possibility to eliminate the antenna amplifier, saving space and system cost.
