Reverse Video Output
« on: June 29, 2005, 10:28:36 PM »

I have a ninja cam mounted on the back of an
RV, then connected wirelessly to a Portable
DVD Player. Every works exactly as I
expected, but because of the location of the
video device, objects that are on the right
side of the vehicle show on the left side of
the video screen. Is there a way to show a
reverse image of the video much like a mirror
would do. I know this can be done with
computer software with no problem, but is
there a device I can plug in line to flip the
video image?

Just use a mirror, like other rear view
automobile video camera systems do.

I cut a small piece of 1/2 inch wood to
about 4" by 6", mounted an XCam2 to one
end, facing it towards the empty end of the
plank where I have mounted two pieces of
mirror at 45 degree angles outward such
that they obscure 1/3 of the camera's field
of view each...allowing me to only see 1/3
of the image the camera is aimed at,
HOWEVER, this configuration allows me to
see BEHIND WHERE THE CAMERA IS AIMED such
that the TV image is virtically split into
THREE VIEWS SIMULTANEOUSLY!!

It's very cool, but there is blocked view
behind the mirrors and immediately behind
the camera BUT A ONE SECOND TOUCH OF THE
REMOTE'S PAN BUTTON **IMMEDIATELY**
DISPLAYS THOSE BLIND SPOTS while the camera
only needs to move an inch or so to reveal
these blind spots, i.e., a touch of the pan
button in the other direction and the
camera is almost immediately restored to
its original position.

This configurations allows 1) 360 degree
view, and 2) SPEED, i.e., no long wait for
camera to pan.  It seems it may also be a
fix to your reverse view problem!

Hi Dale Sides,

I have a wide angle lense unit on my camper
and I modifed the TV.Two sets of windings
on the yoke of the picture tube.One set
flips picture upsidedown while the other
flips left to right(mirror image). Some
TV's are colored blue and green,cut and
reverse these two. Use caution as the
picture tube is very thin at this spot.I
realize your using LCD which is quite
different,but the TV works very good.
