SPLITVIEW enables the front passenger to watch a film while the driver keeps an eye on information from the COMAND control and display system on the same screen.
Information is shown on a 31.2 cm high-resolution colour display. Two different pictures are shown simultaneously with the pixels for each picture next to each other. A mask in front of the display optically divides this mixed image such that, depending on the seat position, only the pixels for the one or for the other picture can be seen. Result: driver and passenger see a different image, at the same time, on one and the same screen.
Two displays on a single screen.

The display provides the driver with all the information from the COMAND control and display system. The front passenger is able to put together his own personal programme comprising DVD videos, music videos or TV programmes.
His display is operated by means of a remote control and he is able to enjoy his selection of media using headphones, so as to avoid disturbing the driver. Telephone and navigation functions are also available to the front passenger – he can call up all the information of the COMAND control and display system on his display.
