Be a parking lot superhero

Why on earth would you need a rear-view camera when you have eyes and a neck that turns? Well, be honest, how many times have you backed up with something blocking your vision, and you were just... winging it? It's been more than a few times, hasn't it?

Alpine's HCE-C125 rear-view cam lets you back up with confidence, instead of pushing your luck. Measuring about one cubic inch, this ice-cube sized camera pairs stealthily with Alpine's low-key KTX-C10LP license plate mounting kit to give you a 131º horizontal viewing angle on the world behind you. Thanks to its automatic imaging function, this camera intuitively adjusts white balance, showing you a crisp, bright mirror image, day or night. With a view this expansive and clear, you'll dare to parallel park in spaces most people would avoid. In some cities, that's a super power.

This camera is compatible with any in-dash receiver or front-mount screen with a composite video input.

Highlights:

  • NTSC rear-view camera with standard RCA and direct connectivity
  • automatic imaging function — metering and white balance adjustment
  • mirror image view
  • high low-light performance
  • fits Alpine KTX-C10LP license plate camera mounting kit
  • camera dimensions: 0.935"W x 0.935"H x 1.175"D
  • black-box dimensions: 1.5"W x 0.59"H x 0.98"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Overview: Add the Alpine HCE-C125 rear-view camera to your vehicle's in-dash monitor for added safety and back out of parking spots with more ease. This small camera (mounting bracket included) can be installed on the rear bumper or by the license plate of your SUV, truck, or car. The high quality color picture is projected right onto your vehicle's in-dash monitor via composite video so you can view what's behind you, right from the convenience of your dash. The Alpine HCE-C125 consists of a rear-view camera, mounting bracket, as well as necessary cable and hardware for installation.

Note: Because the HCE-C125 has a standard composite video output (RCA), it can be used with any monitor with a composite video rear-camera input.

Rear-View Camera: The rear-view camera assists you (the driver) in checking behind your vehicle by sending images to your vehicle's in-dash monitor, showing conditions behind the car. The camera uses a wide-angle lens, therefore, there is a difference in distance perspective between what is normally seen and what appears on the screen. Also, the images shown by the camera are reversed, so as to appear the same as what is seen through the rearview mirror. The Alpine rear-view camera offers the following additional features.

  • Weatherproof housing
  • 1/3.7" color CMOS image sensor with a 4:3 aspect ratio
  • 640 x 480 (300,000) effective pixels
  • 131° horizontal viewing angle, 103° vertical viewing angle
  • Illumination Range of 1.5 lx to 100,000 lx
  • F=1.34 focal length
  • F=1:2.2 brightness

Optional License Plate Mount Kit: The HCE-C125 rear-view camera is compatible with Alpine's KTX-C10LP rear-view camera license plate mounting kit (500KTXC10L, sold separately).
