RealVNC and Texas Instruments (TI) have integrated remote access technology from RealVNC with TI's DRA64x and DRA65x automotive infotainment processors. The inclusion of VNC Automotive delivers high quality in-vehicle entertainment and telematics capabilities to both drivers and passengers alike. 
The integrated solution enables automatic detection, screen replication and control of virtually any mobile device from a vehicle touch-screen or fixed-input controls such as steering-wheel switches and head-unit buttons.

Safe and seamless access to content, such as navigation applications, traffic updates, music libraries and internet radio stations, via the vehicle interface provides drivers with enhanced in-car connectivity and a rich multimedia experience. 

As a leader in mobile to vehicle integration, and a core member of the international Car Connectivity Consortium, RealVNC offers TI advanced features and functionality that supports the Consortium's MirrorLink industry standard. The technology also enables additional features, greater performance and production ready availability on a wide range of mobile handsets.

“RealVNC provides our customers, using either the DRA64x or DRA65x processors, with a proven solution to enhance their in-car connectivity,” said Matthew Watson, product line manager, automotive infotainment processor, Texas Instruments.

The move enables designers in the automotive infotainment value chain to move forward knowing that the integrated solution will allow them to bring products to market faster. It also assures them that their products can gain MirrorLink certification via the CCC certification process.
