Rydeen Provides a Wireless Connection for Rear-View Safety Systems


TORRANCE, CA (01.06.2014) – Rydeen Mobile Electronics built upon its reputation of providing reliable, durable rear-view camera systems with the introduction of a wireless video connectivity solution ideally suited for commercial use. The DG240 saves installation and troubleshooting time by enabling professional technicians to add rear-view cameras and monitors to delivery vans, trailers and even RVs, without having to run wires from back to front.

Wireless video in the vehicle is not a new technology, but it is one that fell out of favor due to spotty and unreliable operation in previous industry products. To solve these issues, Rydeen fine-tuned the frequency characteristics and range of the DG240 to produce a system that nets up to 250 feet of crystal clear video transmission.

“We’re very pleased with the industry leading performance of the DG240,” said Rydeen President Phil Maeda. “As with our highly successful four- and six-sensor parking systems, we’ve invested more than a year perfecting a technology that many retailers and consumers dismissed as unreliable. The DG240 represents a real solution for commercial and recreational vehicles, and we’re proud to bring it to our dealers and distributors.”

The DG240 consists of a wireless transmitter that connects to a rear-view camera and receives power from the reverse light circuit. It features a proprietary connector to plug directly into Rydeen’s popular line of cameras including the MINy and MINy LED2; however, an included adapter allows it to connect to any rear-view camera with a composite (RCA-type) output. A matching receiver uses a composite output to connect to a front monitor, or third-party interface that enables viewing of the camera signal on a factory installed display. Both components are designed to be installed inside the passenger or enclosed storage areas of the vehicle.

The transceiver and receiver are matched from the factory and feature frequency-hopping technology to eliminate the possibility of interference and signal crossing with other nearby systems. If needed, a new receiver can be paired with the transmitter, removing the original from the pairing.

The DG240 is ideally suited for longer vehicles such as Mercedes-Benz and Dodge Sprinter vans, or any application in which the task of running long cables is prohibitive. The wireless connection also eliminates the possibility of connections being damaged due to the heavy use of commercial vehicles.

Rydeen plans to ship the DG240 to authorized retailers and distributors in February, with a suggested retail price of $179.00. For more information, contact Rydeen at (877) 777-8811 or[email protected].
