iBEAM® Introduces 360-Degree Interior View Camera Kits and Cargo Camera for Ford at the 2019 SEMA Show

Metra Electronics®, the leading manufacturer of aftermarket 12volt installation solutions, will introduce new automotive cameras from iBEAM® at the 2019 SEMA Show. As more drivers see the value in upgrading their vehicles to reduce blind spots, prevent a collision, and in the event of an accident, protect themselves from liability with recorded footage, installers have an opportunity to provide quality aftermarket solutions from iBEAM that rival high-end OEM options.

Universal 360-Degree Interior View Cameras
iBEAM will introduce two new camera systems that record everything going on while driving – both inside and out. The difference between the kits is that one displays video on a replacement rearview mirror monitor and the other has a built-in DVR and displays video on an LCD monitor that mounts to the dash or windshield.

The TE-360M45 replacement rearview mirror with a built-in 360-degree dash camera mounts onto the windshield to simultaneously record the driver’s view of the front of the vehicle and the interior of the vehicle. The TE-DVR360 dash camera and touchscreen LCD monitor is mounted onto the windshield for a complete 360-degree view from the driver’s perspective, including the interior of the vehicle. Both systems allow the user to pan left or right on the touchscreen for a wider field of view and also offer a split or quad-screen view. The camera kits also include a rearview camera that mounts outside on the back of the vehicle for a 130-degree diagonal field of view when in reverse. Both cameras have an interior audio recording and snapshot capability that is ideal for rideshare or commercial drivers looking to document both the interior and exterior vehicle events with high-definition 1080p video recording. Both the TE-360M45 and the TE-DVR360 come complete with a universal mount for any car model and easy installation. The TE-360M45 comes with 480×845 resolution on a 4.5” touchscreen monitor that displays within the replacement rearview mirror, while the TE-DVR360 comes with 480×800 resolution on a 4” LCD touchscreen with a built-in DVR.

Owners can choose to record while driving and also when they are away from their vehicle. The parking mode features are equipped with built-in collision lock G-sensors that begin to record with a shock to the vehicle when it is turned off and parked. This built-in collision lock ensures that video is recorded and files are locked in case of an accident to avoid overwriting. Footage is stored on a microSD card that can support up to 32GB of space. Storage management is automated with the loop recording feature that is continually deleting old footage in minute segments to record new footage.
