February 10, 2016 – Queens, NY – Rosco, Inc., a leading manufacturer in automotive vision safety products, introduces the STSC149 integrated brake light backup camera for Ford Transit vehicles. The Ford Transit utility van is used across many industries including emergency, rescue, construction, transit, utility and recreational vehicle markets. Backup cameras are essential for utility vehicles such as the Ford Transit, due to the absence of rear windows increasing blind spots for the driver. Safety is a priority for any fleet. A utility van backing up in a busy loading dock, or parallel parking into a tight space with limited vision can create a dangerous situation. The Ford Transit camera has a 170° field of vision, and up to 30 feet of night vision for maximum visibility. In addition to the Ford Transit, Rosco also provides brake light backup cameras for the Sprinter, GM/Chevy Express, Dodge ProMaster and the Nissan NV 1500 - 3500 vehicles. These integrated backup cameras are compatible with most of Rosco’s 5” and 7” monitors, as well as Rosco’s STSM230 MOR-Vision mirror/monitor providing more options for all fleets. Rosco’s integrated Ford Transit brake light camera reduces complexity and labor associated with camera installation because it fits with existing OEM brake light cut-outs and mates with existing connectors. Further, by high mounting the camera, the STSC149 provides an unparalleled view and perspective where distance to objects and closing speed can be optimally relayed to the driver. Fleet owners can appreciate Rosco’s “two in one” design which eliminates the aftermarket look of most third party installed backup cameras. Backup camera systems prevent injuries and save lives. An efficient rear view camera can also end up saving fleets unnecessary costs by preventing accidents, expensive repairs and insurance claims. Rosco backup camera systems have become a necessity for commercial fleets in order to reduce costs and liability. Rosco is a leader in the rear view camera industry and offers a wide selection of products designed to improve the safety for drivers, passengers and pedestrians.
