Hyndsight Vision Systems is taking a big step forward in the consumer vision industry with the introduction of its new portable, wire-free rear view vision system called Journey, the Peterborough, N.H.-based company announced today (Feb. 24).
According to a release, this turnkey system is comprised of a custom-designed camera and monitor with a sunlight readable screen, antenna set, and two mounts in a hard shell case. Journey is rugged, weather resistant and provides a “real-to-life” visual field. The system provides real-time video stream through a direct wire-free connection (camera to monitor) and a clear image that can transmit up to one-third of a mile with direct line of sight.
One of the revolutionary highlights of Journey is that it can be mounted literally anywhere, with the ability to pair up to four cameras per monitor. It can operate four to five hours before charging is required or can be optionally hard-wired. Three product lines with different lens angles are available, offering additional flexibility and options for use in any environment.
“So many so-called ‘wire-free’ rear vision systems leave consumers disappointed because most of these systems need to be hard-wired for power and antenna connections which can be time consuming and result in costly installation fees on top of the cost of the unit,” said Melissa Thompson, CEO of Hyndsight. “Obstructed vision is a major problem in the utility trailer industry, and Hyndsight’s vision system provides trailer drivers with a constant clear field of vision preventing unnecessary collisions while driving and changing lanes or reversing.”
Because the system is totally portable and wireless, it is easily transferable for multiple applications that require clear rear view visualization to help prevent collisions and provide safety monitoring, including: tractor trailers, utility trailers, back-up system on a RV, horse trailers and stable security, and ATV’s.
