VS715 STAND ALONE DIGITAL MEDIA PLAYER
INTRODUCTION
DVD video is a high-quality digital video source that provides crisp and clear images. One 12 cm disc contains either
one film or up to four hours of music content.
MP3 technology is a world recognized standard for digital
video and audio compression, thus enabling more data to be
squeezed onto a Compact Disc. MP3 technology is becoming more common with cable, internet and satellite transmission. The compression offered by MP3 technology makes it
easier to transmit and record high quality video and audio
signals from your computer than in the past. The VS715
allows playback of MP3 recorded media.
The Clarion VS715 is a full-featured Digital Media Player
specifically created for the mobile environment. It is
designed to work with Clarion Multimedia devices and
Clarion Video Monitors for a complete video solution.
NOTE: The Functions described in this section may differ with the
DVD video disc used. Refer to the instructions provided with the
DVD video. Some disc functions may also differ from the

up to 32 languages and allows selection of the subtitles

• Multi-story function: When a DVD video contains more

away and no more than 3 feet on either side of the sensor.
• Direct sunlight or very bright light will reduce sensitivity
to IR remote signal commands. Be sure the monitor is not
located in direct sunlight.
• Objects between the VS715 faceplate or the Clarion monitor will interfere or block IR remote signal commands.

Installing The VS715
The VS715 can be mounted horizontally or by using the ISO
mounting holes in-dash, as shown in Figures 11 and 12
below.
NOTE: Vertical mounting is not possible with the VS715. Doing
so may damage disc media or cause damage to the internal
mechanism.
NOTE: Check for proper mounting depth before attempting ISO
mounting. The unit is slightly deeper than normal DIN units and
requires proper clearance for mounting.
