CHATSWORTH, Calif., July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Backing up your vehicle is often a "hit or miss" situation. And relying on guesswork can lead to expensive vehicle damage or even danger to life and limb. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20070731/LATU104 ) SANYO's new CCA-BC200 Rear View Backup Camera System with AirCam(TM) technology employs advanced digital processing to deliver accurate, natural-looking rear view images. Freed from distorted wide angle images and hard-to-interpret "fish-eye" perspectives, drivers can now negotiate tight spots and make critical backup maneuvers with safety and confidence. The CCA-BC200 digitally creates visual guidelines that appear on your car's video monitor screen (monitor not included). These helpful guidelines make it easy to align your car while backing into parking spaces or parallel parking. Guidelines include vehicle width and distance indicators at two, four and eight feet. Now available in the U.S.A., the SANYO CCA-BC200 has an MSRP of $299.99*. ORIGINAL, ENHANCED AND AIRCAM(TM) IMAGES Sanyo's backup camera system offers users a choice of three different rear view modes, instantaneously switchable with the press of a dashboard-mounted button. The first mode is the Original, unprocessed rear view. The second mode is an Enhanced, digitally corrected rear view, which features a natural- looking perspective free of typical "fish-eye" or wide angle lens distortions. AirCam(TM), the third rear-view mode, features exclusive Sanyo technology to provide a virtual rear view from above. This unique perspective lets you see, with precision, just how much space is available behind your vehicle. FLEXIBLE MOUNTING OPTIONS Once mounted in a vehicle (professional installation required), the CCA- BC200 backup camera system allows you to set the camera's viewing angle. Whether installed low on a bumper or up high toward the roof, the system will be able to provide clear and precise views of the area behind your vehicle. OFF CENTER IMAGE ADJUSTMENT Digital processing allows you to see a centered image of the area behind your vehicle regardless of whether the camera is mounted to the left, center, or right side of the vehicle. WORKS WITH MOST ANY VEHICLE The SANYO CCA-BC200 works with most any vehicle, including family cars, SUV's, trucks, commercial and high-profile vehicles, RV's and campers, and vehicles with towing capabilities. The system can be used with a car video monitor system and connects through an RCA video input. Monitor is not included.
