Rear Camera Display
Display Technology -- the liquid crystal display (LCD) appears through the mirror’s reflective surface via Gentex’s proprietary “transflective” coatings and lighting techniques.
The result is a bright, high-resolution display in an intuitive location. The display is driven by one or more cameras located at the rear of the vehicle and is available either on the right or left side of the mirror.
Safety and Convenience
From a safety perspective, the Rear Camera Display Mirror should help reduce the risk of backup accidents, especially for vehicles with limited rear vision. Another benefit is the convenience associated with hooking up to boats, RVs and utility trailers.
Not every backup protection requirement calls for camera-based rear observation. Audiovox audible backup sensors also offer excellent collision avoidance warning. Ultrasonic technology notifies drivers of objects outside of their view and indicates closing distance with warning beeps. Our sensors can be easily mounted on bumpers or license plates and are designed to be weather resistant. They scan the vehicle’s blind spot when in reverse and emit a progressively faster tone as the vehicle approaches the object.
For automakers, the video display technology is quick-to-market, easy to install and service, relatively low cost, and offers a seamless enhancement to the auto-dimming rearview mirror.
