Continental ProViu ASL360 Camera System
The Continental ProViu ASL360 Camera System is designed to give drivers an optimal, all around view of the vehicle on a single screen. Four wide-angle micro-cameras monitor the front, rear and sides of the vehicle and display the video feeds as a single panoramic stream on a 7-inch display. The system offers a choice of angles: top-down bird's-eye, raw 180-degree, specific focus single views and multiple split screens. ProViu is easily adaptable to current vehicles and can be integrated into the existing center rack display.
Additionally, Continental introduces a new automotive grade DVR to its ProViu ASL360 Camera System Program. The DVR gives users GPS functionality and the added capability of recording up to 32 GB of footage on a standard SD card. It can record up to four video feeds at one time as well as vehicle speed. A G-sensor logs acceleration at the time of the recording. These features make the new DVR an excellent tool for liability purposes.

They can be used to eliminate blinds spots around the vehicle and improve overall maneuverability, whether the vehicle is on the road or parking. VDO camera systems feature 7-inch color monitors (single and quad screen display) with cameras that offer normal/mirror modes, 100% waterproof housing, vibration resistance and infrared LEDs for night vision. They are designed to meet all OEM specifications and are offered as flexible kits with very competitive pricing.
