LA Auto Show 2017
Video technologies converge in Cadillac's favorWith its new rear seat entertainment system and standard 4G LTE hotspot, Cadillac plugs in a video streamer for personalized entertainment on the go.
I'm here at the Los Angeles auto show checking out kind of a happy accident in rear seat entertainment for Cadillac. I am in a Cadillac CT6 equipped with the rear seat entertainment system. Now this entertainment system with an HDMI port in the center console. Also, all Cadillacs happen to have a 4G LTE wifi hotspot. So guess what? Plug a Chromecast into the HDMI port, hook it up to the wi-fi hotspot, and I can stream any video from my iPhone to this rear seat entertainment system. So of course, right now, I'm watching YouTube with Brian Cooley explaining the Cadillac CT6, the very car I happen to be sitting in right now. I could watch any other video on YouTube. I could watch Netflix. Pretty much any app that works with Chromecast. And guess what? I can also plug in any other streamer with an HDMI port like a Roku. You can get the system in the Cadillac CT6 and, also at the L.A. Auto Show, Cadillac just said they're offering it in the 2017 Escalade. So those are two cars where you wanna ride in back and watch your video.
