Escort Inc., the West Chester-based radar

market with a partner.

Escort said Thursday it is teaming with
digital TV software supplier Siano to design
and market a mobile TV accessory for
autos using an Apple iPad connection.
Financial terms of the agreement weren’t

The new product, to be introduced at the
next month’s consumer electronics show in
Las Vegas, will be sold under the Escort
Mobile TVT brand. The small TV will plug
into a car’s pre-installed iPad headrest
mount, the companies said.

The mobile TV will be supported by Siano’s
digital TV receiver and other software.

“Our successful collaboration with Siano to
produce MobileTVT has opened up an
entire series of patent pending MDTV
based products which we will announce in
the near future,” said John Larson, Escort
president and CEO.
