Multi-View Backup Camera: The HCE-C2100RD multi-view camera will show
you the obstacles around the rear of the vehicle from different angles to assist
you with parking, backing up, and to even connect a trailer.
- Rear View: Displays an image of the area directly
behind the vehicle. Use this when backing into a parking space.
- Corner View: Displays a divided image left and right of
center. Use this when checking the left and right area directly behind your
- Panorama View: Display a general perspective of what is
behind the car. Use this when you want to check mainly behind the vehicle.

lower section for the vehicle. Use this when determining the vehicle's
position in relation to the curb, a trailer hitch, etc..
Note: This rearview camera is meant as a back-up aid
only; never solely rely on the rearview camera when backing-up. In addition
to using the rearview camera, always look behind you to make sure everything
is clear when backing up your vehicle.
Compatibility: The HCE-C2100RD multi-view backup camera is
compatible solely with Alpine in-dash multimedia and navigation receivers which
are equipped with a proprietary multi-pin camera input. The HCE-C2100RD comes
with an extra-long cable to run the power and signal from the camera to your
compatible Alpine receiver.
CMOS Image Sensor + Wide-Angle Lens: The HCE-C2100RD
multi-view backup camera employs a 1/4" color CMOS image sensor with 1280 (h) x
720 (v) effective number of pixels (1,228,800 megapixels). Plus an automatic
exposure adjustment and white balance adjustment delivers clear
viewing day or night. The Alpine HCE-C2100RD multi-view backup
camera features a wide-angle lens (180°
horizontal x 70° vertical) for an extended
view behind your vehicle to reduce your blind spot areas. The camera's lens has
a focal length of f=1.27mm and brightness of f=1.8.
HDR (High Dynamic Range): Thanks to HDR technology, the
picture quality is much better compared to regular camera systems, for even
better visibility behind your vehicle when backing up, with a high-resolution
and high-detail camera image. The HCE-C2100RD offers incredible image quality in
varying levels of light with a wide illumination range (1.5 to 100,000 Lux). HDR
(High Dynamic Range) and automatic fast exposure adjustment eliminates image
wash-out common when going from areas of heavy shade into areas with bright
sunlight (for example underground parking, tunnels, etc).
Parking Guidelines: This multi-view backup camera includes
convenient Parking Guidelines that can be fully adjusted to match the width of
your vehicle. This makes parking safer and more convenient compared to a regular
backup camera without Parking Guidelines.
Rugged Housing: The Alpine HCE-C2100RD employs a
water & dust proof housing (IP68) to protect the multi-view backup camera from the outdoor
