Brandmotion, leading provider of safety products and accessories for the aftermarket, introduced the latest addition to its line of factory-grade rear vision cameras. The 9002-8501 is designed to fit a multitude of vehicles, making Authentic OEM™ build and performance available to aftermarket buyers. But what makes the 8501 significant is not just its quality, but its price.
The 8501 utilizes a CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) image sensor, which is the most accurate technology available in cameras of this size. Typically, cameras of this quality are significantly higher in price than cameras that utilize CMOS or other technologies. But Brandmotion re-engineered the 8501 to include factory quality at an MSRP of $175.95.
There’s no question that CCD is the superior technology,” said Jeff Varick, president of Brandmotion. “It’s always been a question of cost; whether a customer wanted to pay more for Authentic OEM quality. What we’ve been able to do with the 8501 is bring the cost down close to what many other competitors are charging for older or less reliable cameras. It represents cost-efficient quality and a better product experience for the end user.”
Designed for multiple vehicle types, the 8501 incorporates a lip-mount design, allowing it to hide under the trunk or hatch edge while giving it a clear view of the area behind the vehicle. Its ample wiring harness enables connection BM8501Finalto a front-mounted monitor or aftermarket radio with a composite (RCA-type) input for a rear view camera.
The camera mounts to an included base that has been re-engineered to minimize drilling during installation while providing a factory installed look and finish. A single, small hole, covered by the base, is required to pass the camera wire. The base is equipped with screw eyelets to securely mount it to any flat surface.
