LAS VEGAS, Oct. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At this year’s SEMA show, Gentex Corporation (NASDAQ: GNTX) will demonstrate a Full Display Mirror (FDM) that toggles between multiple camera feeds, an auxiliary FDM camera that can affix to trailers and campers to provide optimum rear vision, and an all-new automatic-dimming mirror with integrated HomeLink buttons capable of operating RF (radio frequency) and cloud-based home automation devices.
These and other products, along with a custom, Michigan-themed 2018 Chevy Colorado and Toyota Gazoo LMP1 racecar, will feature prominently at Gentex’s booth (North Hall, #11673), which has been designed to showcase the breadth and depth of Gentex’s expanding digital vision and vehicle connectivity product lineup.
Gentex is a long-time supplier of electro-optical products for the global automotive industry. It supplies nearly every major automaker with connected-car technologies and advanced electronic features that optimize driver vision and enhance driving safety.
The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show is the premiere automotive specialty products trade event in the world. This year’s show takes place October 30 to November 2, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“The SEMA show allows us to promote our existing accessory and aftermarket products while at the same time gathering input on technologies we’re implementing with our OEM customers,” said Gentex President and CEO Steve Downing. “We then use the feedback to enhance the factory products and turn them into high-quality features for the aftermarket.”
Several years ago at SEMA, Gentex introduced to the aftermarket its Full Display Mirror, an intelligent rear-vision system that uses a custom camera and mirror-integrated video display to optimize a vehicle’s rearward view. The system captures video from a rearward-facing camera and streams it to a unique mirror-integrated LCD that provides the driver with an unobstructed, panoramic view behind the vehicle.
