Intended use

WARNING! Danger of personal injury by vehicle
Video systems are designed merely as an additional aid for reversing, however this does not relieve you of the duty to take proper care when reversing, turning or driving forwards.

The CAM360AHD video system (ref. no. 9600000509) is designed for use in vehicles.

The cameras transmit images in a 360° panoramic view, providing you with a birds-eye view of the vehicle’s environment to the sides, in front and behind. In addition, one of the four cameras can be shown selectively (split screen). The selection of an individual camera image depends on the input signals from the turn signals and reverse gear. In addition, the selection can also be made via the remote control provided.

It is used to monitor the direct vehicle environment, e.g. when driving, changing lanes, manoeuvring or parking.

Technical description

Four 180° wide wangle cameras are located on the front, the rear, and the left and right sides of the vehicle. A video processor merges the recorded images into a single image in real time that shows a birds-eye view of the vehicle and its surroundings at the front, rear and sides.

The camera system is switched on as soon as the vehicle is started. Depending on the settings, individual cameras can be activated by input signals, e.g. by using a turn signal or reverse gear.
The control unit features four camera inputs and connects the cameras to the screens via a plug connector.
The control unit allows the following options:

  • A permanent split screen, or a split screen triggered by a control signal
  • Automatic full screen mode for the reversing camera as a rear mirror function
  • Permanent full screen mode for the 360° panorama view (birds-eye view)

Videos from the cameras can be saved (USB drive) according to the circular buffer principle and played back within the camera system. A recording sequence lasts up to 10 minutes, then the next recording sequence begins automatically. Once the memory is full, the oldest file is overwritten automatically.

To play the videos on a computer, the video format H.264 must be supported.
