Peterborough, New Hampshire – Hyndsight Vision Systems has recently become an online and retail vendor partner with Lazydays RV, one of the country’s largest RV dealerships. Hyndsight’s versatile new portable, rear view wire-free vision system will be featured in the company’s ecommerce store – accessories.lazydays.com and in various retail locations.
The retail store locations include, Seffner Florida, Tucson Arizona, Aurora Colorado, Johnstown Colorado and Longmont Colorado.
Hyndsight Vision Systems is taking a big step forward in the consumer vision industry with the introduction of its new portable, wire-free rear view vision system called Journey. This turnkey system is comprised of a custom designed camera and monitor with a sunlight readable screen, antenna set and two mounts in a hard shell case. The system provides real-time video stream through a direct wire-free connection (camera to monitor) and a clear image that can transmit up to one-third of a mile with direct line of sight, according to a press release.
One of the highlights of Journey is that it can be mounted anywhere, with the ability to pair-up to four cameras per monitor. It can operate four to five hours before charging is required or can be optionally hard-wired. Three product lines with different lens angles are available, offering additional flexibility and options for use in any environment.
“So many so-called 'wire-free' rear vision systems leave consumers disappointed because most of these systems need to be hard-wired for power and antenna connections which can be time consuming and result in costly installation fees on top of the cost of the unit,” Hyndsight CEO Melissa Thompson says. “Obstructed vision is a major issue in the RV industry, and Hyndsight’s vision system provides drivers with a constant clear field of vision preventing unnecessary collisions while driving and changing lanes or reversing. We’re truly honored to have Lazydays understand these issues and become part of the Hyndsight Team of retailers.”
Founded in 2011, Hyndsight Vision Systems’ corporate offices and distribution center is located in Peterborough, New Hampshire. The company has secured world-wide distribution agreements with national and international companies and has several new products in development.
