HAUPPAUGE, NY – DECEMBER 4, 2014 –VOXX Electronics Corp (VEC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp. (NASDAQ: VOXX), today announced the launch of its Advent branded RVM100, OEM Styled rear view mirror with built in back up monitor that has the look and feel of an OEM system.
“Advent has been providing our car dealer partners with vehicle add-ons that broaden their profit opportunities and provide sought after consumer accessories since we launched our car dealer programs nearly 50 years ago,” said Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics. “With the increased focus on vehicle and driver safety, this new system is just what our car dealer partners are looking for…an affordable solution with an OE look.”
2018 marks the date that The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has set to require rear visibility technology in all new vehicles in an effort to enhance the safety of these vehicles and significantly reducing the risk of fatalities and serious injuries caused by back over accidents.*This system arrives well before the mandate and lets consumers add this very important safety feature today.
“The RVM100 features a 4.3” High Definition color monitor that when paired with a backup camera allows the driver to view the image in the mirror. This greatly improves the ability to ‘see’ behind the vehicle eliminating the “Blind spot zone”. The RVM100 is being released at a price point that allows it to be added to any vehicle, adding safety to vehicles that were not equipped with these features previously. The Mirror is connected to any camera (sold separately) using standard RCA inputs and matches the factory look and feel of the vehicle. Vehicle specific mounts are available for many brands of vehicles from any Advent dealer.

The Advent brand is marketed by VOXX Electronics Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp., (NASDAQ: VOXX).
