Product Research


Compatibility: The JVC KV-CM20 Universal Rear-View Camera can be used as a back-up camera with JVC in-dash monitors. However, the standard composite video output (RCA plug) extension cable makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor.

Waterproof Chassis: The camera is built into a compact waterproof aluminum case, making it perfect for mounting outside the vehicle.

CMOS Optics: The 1/4" color CMOS image sensor has approximately 310,000 pixels to deliver a high quality picture.

Wide Angle Lens: The 130° horizontal and 101° vertical viewing angles provide an excellent near field view of anything behind you. The camera gives you a mirror image for rear view confirmation.

Illumination Range: The rear-view camera provides an illumination range of approximately 0.9 to 100,000 lux. It offers less light distortion from nearby light sources.

Mounting: The rear-view camera comes supplied with a metal mounting bracket that attaches to the camera with two supplied machine screws (already installed), and attaches to your vehicle with its self-adhesive backing or included mounting screw. Once the camera is installed in the mounting bracket the camera's angle can be adjusted to work in your application.
