Rosco to Display MOR-Vision Backup Camera System for Transit Buses at the BusCon Expo in September

September 30th, 2013

Queens, NY – August 30, 2013 – Rosco, Inc. will be showcasing the MOR-Vision Backup Camera System at the 2013 BusCon Expo in Chicago from September 9 to the 11th. Since its launch in January, the popularity of the MOR-Vision Backup Camera System has been growing with fleet managers in numerous markets as a new record was set in August for units shipped. The MOR-Vision Backup Camera System is a more advanced driver aide for large vehicles that includes a camera mounted on the back of the vehicle sending images to a monitor installed within the interior rear view mirror.

“The MOR-Vision Backup Camera System is perfect for large buses backing into tight spots or moving in reverse when visibility is limited. It also has the capacity for additional interior and side cameras – “It provides firm and unequivocal confirmation to the driver that the path behind the bus is clear, and that no pedestrians have entered into the danger zone,” said Peter Plate, Rosco’s Director of Sales & Marketing.

The large rearview mirror/monitor comes in three different sizes 6” X 16”, 6” X 30” and 10” x 30”. The installation is the same as any other large bus interior rearview mirror. The backup cameras are also installed like any other system, and the camera harness is simply connected to the monitor. In the MOR-Vision STSK6630 rearview camera system, a 7-inch LCD monitor is automatically displayed on the interior rearview mirror when the vehicle shifts into reverse allowing the driver to see behind the bus. Once the driver shifts into other modes of bus operation, a normal mirror view reappears. Large buses equipped with the MOR-Vision backup camera systems have options for multiple cameras including side cameras and interior cameras. An automatic monitor view changes based on the operational conditions of the bus or preference of the driver.

Visit Booth 1112 at BusCon to learn more about the MOR-Vision technology and how it can help your fleet performance. Rosco, Inc. will also be participating in BusCon’s New Technology and Equipment Blast Off on Wednesday, September 11th with demonstrations by Regional Sales Manager, Joe Leggett. Join this seminar to learn how you can increase savings and improve your bottom line.
