HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, CENTRAL HALL BOOTH 13517–VOXX Electronics Corporation (VEC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today that the Company has entered into a distribution agreement with Gentex Corporation to exclusively distribute the Gentex Aftermarket Full Display Mirror® (FDM™) in North America. This system was designed to enhance driving safety by optimizing the driver's rear visibility and help eliminate blind spots. In addition, VOXX Electronics Corporation will also distribute the complete Gentex product line of automatic-dimming interior and exterior rearview mirrors and electronics.
"We are very excited to announce this agreement with Gentex, the world's leading supplier of automatic-dimming interior rearview mirrors and electronics. Gentex has always been an innovator in this category and we look forward to future product collaborations between the two companies," said Aron Demers, Senior Vice President, VOXX Electronics Corporation. "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 thrilled to become the exclusive distributor and product launch partner of the Full Display Mirror system."
Under this new distribution agreement, VOXX will exclusively distribute the Gentex Aftermarket Full Display Mirror (FDM). The FDM is the first hybrid rear vision system. It functions as a standard automatic dimming rearview mirror, but with the flip of a lever, a custom high-dynamic-range imager that captures video of the vehicle's rear view and streams it to a unique mirror-integrated LCD display. This system meets current U.S. mirror regulations and is FMVSS-111-compliant.
The Gentex Aftermarket Full Display Mirror (FDM) will be available late in the first quarter of 2017.
