Gentex Corporation (NASDAQ: GNTX), a supplier of automatic-dimming rear-view mirrors and electronics to the automotive industry, is launching an aftermarket version of its Full Display Mirror at the 2016 SEMA Show.

The product is an intelligent rear vision system that uses a rearward-facing camera and mirror-integrated video display to optimise a vehicle's rearward view. The Full Display Mirror consists of mirror-borne LCD and a custom, Gentex-designed camera engineered specifically for automotive vision. The mirror offers bi-modal functionality. In mirror mode, the product functions as a standard automatic-dimming rear-view mirror, but with the flip of a lever, the mirror goes into display mode, and a clear, bright, LCD display appears through the mirror's reflective surface, providing a wide, unobstructed rearward view.

The aftermarket FDM will be offered in the first quarter of 2017 and be supplied with a complete installation kit consisting of the mirror, camera, cables and wire harnesses, and several bracket options for mounting the camera to the rear window.
