Brandmotion Releases Additional F-Series Applications For 360 Vision Camera System


Renowned safety solutions provider expands line to cover 2004 and newer models.
SOUTHFIELD, MICH., December 2, 2015 - Fresh offf a vibrant Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in which Brandmotion received Manufacturer of the Year honors from the association's Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) council, the supplier of factory-grade safety solutions to the aftermarket announced it had expanded the number of applications for its multi-camera systems; specifically in its 360 Vision line. The additional SKUs allow the company to offer an uncompromising view while parking and maneuvering on trucks from 2004 to 2016 if equipped with compatible factory radio screens.
"This was a very important step for us," said Brandmotion President and Founder Jeff Varick. "Our mission has always been to provide drivers with enhanced safety and convenience systems on the aftermarket side, yet ensure that they are tightly and seamlessly integrated into the factory functionality of the vehicle's existing components. Ours is not the first 360-degree system on the market, but it is one of the best in delivering a factory experience, from the matching OEM-grade wiring harnesses to the ergonomic ease of use. It's a great system for F-Series owners, and you can expect us to add more vehicle-specific applications for the technology."
While the upcoming federal mandate requires that all vehicles have at least a single back-up camera, many vehicle manufacturers are equipping vehicles with two-camera systems to show front and rear views. Still others have employed a four-camera system with on-board processing that stitches the four views together to create a "Birds-eye view" of the vehicle's surroundings in real time. In its 2015 Vehicle Rear Vision Market Study, Brandmotion identified several trims in the F-Series line that either require expensive trim package upgrades to get a camera system, or simply don't have one available.
The Brandmotion 360-degree Vision system consists of four high-resolution cameras, two of which are designed to fit under the side mirrors and provide a 185-degree view. The third is flush-mounted in the front bumper, while the rear-view camera is embedded in a vehicle-specific tailgate handle. Users see the rear view automatically when the vehicle is put into reverse gear, overlaid with distance park lines to aid in maneuvering, with a smaller top-down vehicle view alongside. The driver can then select between multiple views including the top-down view and split-screen views from each camera.
Currently, Brandmotion's 360-degree Vision system covers the following models:
• Part No. AVMS-3614 - 2015 and newer F-1F-150 with 4-inch MyFord Factory Display
• Part No. AVMS-3618 - 2015 and newer F-1F-150 with 8-inch MyTouch Factory Display
• Part No. AVMS-3604 - 2012-2014 F-150 wi with 4-inch MyFord Factory Display
• Part No. AVMS-3608 - 2013-2014 F-Seriesies with 8-inch MyTouch Factory Display
• Part No. AVMS-3600 - 2004 and newer F-Se-Series with composite-input (RCA-type) video display
All vehicle-specific kits carry an MSRP of $1229.95 plus installation, while the universal AVMS-3600 has a suggested retail price of $999.95 plus installation. In addition to the 360-degree Vision system, Brandmotion offers vehicle-specific, multi-camera systems for several vehicle brands equipped with factory display radios, including Ram, Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge.

Convoy Technologies Announces the Launch Of The “Mounted TrailerCam”


A Wireless Backup Camera Designed for Tractor Trailers
New wireless technology designed and developed in the USA specifically for commercial vehicles that works up to 100 feet without interference or the need for line-of-sight.
Enables drivers of commercial vehicles to remove blind spots while driving in reverse, regardless of vehicle size.
NEWPORT BEACH, CA, August 4th, 2014 – Convoy Technologies, LLC today launched the “Mounted TrailerCam™”, a wireless backup camera designed specifically for large commercial vehicles up to 100 feet in length. This product is the world’s first backup camera designed for the tractor trailer industry. The “Mounted TrailerCam™” is designed to be permanently mounted and is ruggedized to survive harsh environmental conditions associated with heavy duty commercial use. The “Mounted TrailerCam™” connects via a dedicated frequency to a wireless monitor in the cab, guaranteed to deliver a crystal clear, latency-free video to the driver up to 100 feet. The limitations of hardwired systems have inhibited the adoption of backup and blind spot camera systems on tractor trailers, and as a result, less than 0.5% of tractor trailer fleets currently use camera technology.

LightSafe Car Escape Tool Give-Away Announced


May 16, 2014 - Holts Summit, MO -- Beginning May 17 2014, DTC LifeTools announces it will run a social media event to give away a LightSafe Car Escape Tool to three lucky winners. The auto glass breaker give-away is part of the companies one year birthday 'Sale-A-Bration'. DTC LifeTools CEO states, "It is our primary goal to equip as many people as possible with tools they can use for routine purposes as well as those rare times when and if their lives might depend on them. We are using every means possible to meet that objective. Since June 2nd is the one-year anniversary of our official company launch, we thought the best way to celebrate that was to do something for our fans and followers. Without their support we would not be here today."
The LightSafe was released last year along with the AutoSafe Tire Gauge with Car Escape Tools. These two products were the first in the DTC product line and as such helped to launch the company. Carter explains, "While both products include the same set of stainless steel escape tools on one end, they are also unique in that the AutoSafe has a digital tire pressure gauge where the LightSafe has an multifunctional LED flashlight.
There have been many 5 star reviews posted on both products. Here is an actual Amazon customer review for the LightSafe Car Escape Tool with auto glass breaker and LED flashlight:
"I love this Escape Hammer Tool and it exceeded my expectations. I never knew you could package so much different tools in a tool set. It definitely comes in handy while I go on road trips with my friends and it's not too big so I can put this in my glove box and not have to worry about where I put it." - Amazon Customer Jamie C.
Details for the give-away and other festivities are posted on the company website and social media platforms.
