Questions on Surface Mount Backup Camera with Infra-red Illuminators

  • From steve mill at 12/28/2015 8:45 PM
    • I want to use this on a 2005 Chevy Silverado.
      1. 66' of cable is about 40' to long can it be shorten"
      2. is a ccd or cmos image sensor?
      3. will it work with a normal pioneer car radio double dinn with video input?
      4. how will this hold up if I use a automatic car was only maybe 5 times a season in winter,
    • 1. Sure it can. We have shorter cables like a 33' or 21' that will work better for you.
      2. It's a CMOS lens.
      3. As long as the pioneer has RCA inputs, this camera will be able to connect right to it.
      4. The camera is completely waterproof with an IP68 rating so will hold up in all weather conditions.

    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Marc at 1/28/2016 5:46 PM
    • If I mount this on the back of a horse trailer which will place it about 9 ft off the ground will it give a a decent view or do I need one that can be adjusted for angle?
    • That mounting position actually sounds pretty perfect! It will give you a good view of the hitch and behind your trailer.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From John Hoover at 2/6/2016 11:58 PM
    • Can this camera be mounted upside down horizontally? (Horizontal place directly above license plate.)
      Does.this camera have guide/distance lines?
      Do any of your cameras for cars have guide/distance lines?
      Is the sensor 1/4 or 1/3.? CMOS?
    • The camera cannot be mounted upside down but the RVS-MV1 or RVS-776 can be.
      The camera does not have built-in grid lines but the RVS-776 does have.
      The sensor for all three cameras mentioned is a CMOS but the RVS-MV1 and RVS-776 have a new version called the MT9V136.

Ask Your Own Question

Auto Iris Sensor

Senses ambient light and automatically adjusts infra-red strength based on the ambient light.

Display Contrast/Contrast Ratio

The ratio of the brightest color (white) to the darkest color (black) that the system is capable of producing. A high contrast ratio is a desired aspect of any display.

Display Format/Display Aspect Ratio

The proportional comparison between a display’s width and height. It is expressed as two numbers separated by a colon. Common aspect ratios for displays are 4:3, 16:9, and 21:9. 16:9 is the international standard format for Full HD.

Dot Pitch

A dot pitch measures the maximum sharpness of a displayed image. Usually measured in millimeters (mm), a smaller number means a sharper image.

Dot Resolution

Dots are elements that make up an image. The higher the dot resolution, the higher quality the image.

Event Mode

Video recording mode which causes footage to be overwrite protected. Event mode is usually triggered with unusual vehicle movement or sudden impact.


Frames per second (FPS) is a measurement of how many unique consecutive images a camera can handle every second.


Measures impact or sudden changes in velocities. Once the G-Sensor is activated, event mode automatically begins.

Gamma Correction

Corrects colors on your display.


A style of video compression that allows for the greatest video quality with the smallest storage space.

IP Rating

The IP rating measures protection against solid and liquid objects. The larger the number, the higher the rating. An IP69K rating is the highest rating available, meaning that the system is completely weatherproof.

Infra-Red Illuminator

Infra-red lights are for night vision. Infra-reds emit light which the human eye cannot detect but cameras can. This greatly increases visibility in zero or low light conditions without an actual visible light source. Many of our cameras are equipped with infra-red lights.

Loop Recording

Video recording mode where after video storage is full, the camera will seamlessly loop over and begin recording over the oldest footage.

Mobile DVR

A recording device used to record video footage. DVR's are useful for fleet managers because they provide footage of accidents and information on vehicle's whereabouts and driving routes.

Motion Detection

A feature that automatically records before, during and after an impact while in parking mode. This way the driver has footage from an accident, even when they’re away from their car.


The control unit or "brain" of the system. The multiplexer powers the system, receives all cameras feeds and sends them to the monitor. The multiplexer is connected straight to the fuse box and has a power capacity of 12-24 volts.


National Television System Committee (NTSC) is a video system that transmits 30 frames per second (FPS).

Necessary/Usable Illumination

Measures how much ambient light (measure in lux) is needed to view an image. If your system has infra-red illuminators, 0 lux is needed.


Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) refers to equipment that was installed in a vehicle when it was manufactured. OEM style is an installation with a clean, factory look.


Phase Alternation by Line (PAL) is a video system that transmits 25 frames per second (FPS).

Picture Elements

Picture elements is another way to write pixel. A pixel is the smallest addressable element in digital imaging. The more pixels, the higher the quality image.

Power Supply

Most of our systems may be powered by 12 or 24 volt batteries, meaning they can be powered by the vehicle battery. DC stands for direct current.

S/N Ratio (Signal-to-Noise Ratio)

Compares the level of desired signal to the level of background noise. A ratio above 1:1 (greater than 0dB) indicates more signal than noise.


A physical or mechanical shock is a sudden acceleration caused by outside factors such as impact. It is usually measured in G units, which represent multiples of the acceleration of gravity.


A high quality monitor used in appliances such as television sets, computer monitors and mobile phones. A TFT LCD monitor improves image qualities including contrast and sharpness. These displays only use up to half the power of a traditional monitor.

TV Lines

The maximum number of alternating light and dark vertical lines that can be resolved per picture height. The higher the number, the better the image quality


An automatic action that occurs when a specific operation occurs. An example is a rear camera view displaying when a car is put into reverse.


A mechanical phenomenon where fluctuations occur about an equilibrium point. It is usually measured in g units, which represent multiples of the acceleration of gravity.
