VOXX Electronics Corp (VEC), a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp., announced at the 2014 International CES that the company is expanding its offerings in the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) category with the introduction of an innovative Driving Video Recorder (DVR), all new Multi-view Camera system and affordable add–on Parking Sensors solutions.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are designed to provide essential information and automate complex or repetitive tasks, leading to an overall increase in driver situational awareness and safety. With the push from government for greater on-the-road safety and ever-increasing interest from automakers and consumers to have innovative safety features, the ADAS market is considered one of the fastest growing segments in automotive electronics.
According to recent industry reports, the global ADAS market will grow at a CAGR of 22.59 percent over the next 2 years. And among the major trends the market is seeing is the increasing deployment of ADAS in lower-cost cars and add-on aftermarket systems.
“The global market for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems has grown significantly in recent years, as automakers enhance the safety technologies in their vehicles based on marketplace and governmental demands," said Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics Corp. "We were one of the first companies in the aftermarket to provide safety accessories as part of our product offerings and we now have an aggressive roadmap to expand the product offerings to grow our automotive business.”
HD Driving Video Recorder (DVR): Positioned on the windshield just behind the rear view mirror, the VOXX DVR is always in stand by mode ready to record non-stop any event such as an accident or interesting, fun experiences during your travels. Should you have an accident, the new DVR700 HD event recorderis always recording and the built in G sensors automatically lock the currently recorded section from 1 minute before to 3 minutes after the incident that triggered the system. This ensures that the event cannot be erased or recorded over.
The recording lock can also be triggered manually if the driver wantsto capture something dangerous on the road or simply wants to ensure they save that recording for viewing at a later time. The system features a built-in rechargeable battery and supports Micro SD Cards up to 32Gb allowing up to 16 hours of continuous recording. Included is a cigarette lighter adapter and direct wire power cable with video output connection.
The DVR700 HD delivers 720p resolution (1280*720) and is only 1.5" x 2.5" in size with a flat black finish to make it very discrete.
