VOXX Electronics Offers Hybrid Rear Vision System

Apr 27, 2017

The Gentex Aftermarket Full Display Mirror, a hybrid rear vision system, is now available from VOXX Electronics Corporation (VEC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation.

The system was designed to enhance driving safety by optimizing the driver’s rear visibility and helping eliminate blind spots. It functions as a standard automatic dimming rearview mirror, but by flipping a lever, a custom high-dynamic-range imager captures video of the vehicle’s rear view and streams it to a mirror-integrated LCD display.

“Earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show, we announced our exclusive distribution agreement with Gentex to distribute the Aftermarket Full Display Mirror. As a leader in the 12-Volt aftermarket and new car dealer space, we are always looking to expand our product offerings to meet consumer demand for new and improved technologies, and we are excited to announce we are now shipping the Gentex Aftermarket Full Display Mirror,” said Aron Demers, senior vice president, VOXX Electronics Corporation.

The product features an LCD display with a resolution of 1280×275 that can improve rear vision with no obstructions from headrests, C&D pillars, passenger, luggage or anything else that may take up space in the backseat.

The system reportedly provides hybrid, bi-modal functionality with mirror and display mode, enabling users to toggle between modes to accommodate various driving scenarios, weather conditions and driver preferences. Mirror mode operates as a standard mirror detecting headlight glare from trailing vehicles and darkens to the necessary level to preserve driver vision. In Display mode, the custom-designed high-dynamic-range imager with pixel-level intelligence provides streaming HD video at 60fps for optimal rear vision.

Additionally, the mirror has driver adjustable display. Some options include day/night brightness control and HomeLink car-to-home automation, which provides three buttons that can be programmed to operate garage doors, security gates, home lighting and more.
