Nissan's 'Smart' Rear-View Mirror Displays Video

Nissan is reinventing rear-view mirrors with its Smart Rearview Mirror — an LCD monitor that integrates a backup camera that the automaker will show on a 2014 Rogue at the New York International Auto Show.

The Smart Rearview Mirror allows a driver to switch between the LCT monitor and a traditional rear-view mirror. When in LCD mode, the mirror operates as a monitor to display images from a high-resolution camera allowing the driver to gain a clear view of the rear of the vehicle.

The mirror uses a high-performance, narrow-angle camera producing 1.3 million pixel images and a specially shaped LCT monitor with an aspect ratio of 4:1 compared to traditional aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9.

Nissan plans to introduce the mirror to global markets in the next few years after an initial rollout to Japanese customers before summer.

    Very clever idea to integrate and allow switching between mirror and video. While we sell lots of backup camera systems (http://www.rvcams.com), we agree that it's foolish to remove mirrors altogether, as Tesla and apparently some other manufacturers are requesting permission to do. A reliable backup to your video backup system is wise.
