iBEAM Announces New Commercial and Consumer Vehicle Safety Products at CES

HOLLY HILL, FL (12.21.2018) – iBEAM by Metra Electronics is introducing new vehicle safety products at CES 2019, designed for applications ranging from consumer vehicles to commercial tractor trailers, Jeeps, ATVs, UTVs and motorcycles. Investing in vehicle safety upgrades continues to grow across commercial and consumer markets. Drivers are seeing how valuable it is to record their driving history in case of accidents, as well as having a video system to improve overall visibility. iBEAM’s new products will be on display at booth 5211 at CES.


Water Resistant Dual-Camera and DVR The TE-DVR-PS is a water-resistant dual-channel hide-away camera designed for motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, boats or other outdoor vehicles. This kit includes front and back cameras that provide 150-degree viewing angles and 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second for high-quality video playback. Both cameras and the control box are IP67 rated. Video is recorded and stored on a Micro SD card protected behind a water-resistant door on the Wi-Fi enabled control box. The free RoadCam smartphone app can be used for video playback of past recordings. It is also helpful to use when installing the system to ensure correct camera positioning. The TE-DVR-PSEXT is an 8-foot extension cable with IP67 rated connectors used to extend the rear camera of the TE-DVR-PS (sold separately). For drivers who want to protect themselves from liability in the event of an accident or simply record their adventures, the TE-DVR-PS is a reliable water-resistant choice for outdoor vehicles.
