iBEAM Introduces Three High-Resolution Third Brake Light Cameras

Oct 1, 2018

Holly Hill, FL Metra Electronics®, the leading manufacturer of aftermarket automotive solutions, announces iBEAM Vehicle Safety Systems® high-resolution third brake light cameras, the TE-3BNV2, TE-3BDP2 and TE-FDPL. The TE-3BNV2 and TE-3BDP2 cameras use the factory brake light and expand it to add the camera, allowing for a clean install. This keeps the vehicle looking like ‘factory’ but with the additional safety and security of a reverse viewing camera.  iBeam’s TE-FDPL is a replacement license plate light camera.  Each of the cameras offer selectable parking lines, a CMOS ¼ sensor, 580 TV line resolution and a 170 degree viewing angle.

 

According to the National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration’s estimates, installing backup cameras and monitors in all vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less could result in a 46 percent reduction in fatalities.  “Improving the safety of operating a vehicle provides the driver with peace of mind, and that is what iBeam is all about,” said Stephanie Carver, iBeam research and development director.
