Sanyo Rear View Backup Cam

Sanyo today unveiled its CCA-BC200 rear view camera for drivers of minivans and SUVs that want to eliminate blind spots. The less than 3.5 inches-wide camera can produce the typical fish-eye lens view for maximum coverage but can also intelligently adapt the view to create a more natural perspective; a toggle will automatically correct any distortions in the image and simplify identifying the position of children and others who might be threatened by the vehicle. Parking is also made easier through a unique technique dubbed AirCam that creates a virtual top-down view, helping large vehicles reverse safely into a tight area.

The camera further imposes virtual rear distance markers and can also center the rear image of the vehicle regardless of where the camera is positioned on the back. Sanyo says the bumper- and roof-mountable system should be available now in the US for $300 and requires only a standard 12-volt car power connection and an RCA input for video.
