Product Research


Compatibility: The CMOS-740HD is only compatible with select Kenwood receivers that feature a high-definition composite video camera input and HD video screen. Compatible Kenwood receivers include the DNX997XR, DDX9907XR, and DMX957XR (all sold separately).

Note: The Kenwood CMOS-740HD camera will not work with other non-HD Kenwood receivers and other brands of receivers.

CMOS Optics: The Kenwood CMOS-740HD rearview camera utilizes a 1/3.8" CMOS image sensor with approximately 1,300,000 pixels (1.3 Mega pixels). The camera gives you a brilliant mirror image of what's behind your vehicle for rearview confirmation.

High Definition View: The CMOS-740HD camera will display an image in high definition (1280 x 720p) on a compaitble Kenwood receiver with a high-definition composite video camer input and HD video screen.

HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology reproduces bright and dark objects more clearly at the same time. HDR helps to reduce "blown out highlights" and "crushed blacks" and ensures clear images in challenging environments; including backlit scenes in daylight, streetlight scenes at night, and places where light-dark contrast is particularly severe.

Wide Viewing Angle: The CMOS-740HD is equipped with a F2.0 wide-angle lens. The 180° (horizontal) x 103°(vertical) angle lens allows you to check your rear right and left sides of your vehicle when backing up and parking. The CMOS-740HD provide an excellent near field view of practically anything behind you.

Note: This rearview camera is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rearview camera when backing up. In addition to using the rearview camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

Illumination Range: The Kenwood rearview camera provides an illumination range of approximately 1.0 to 100,000 luxe. It offers less light distortion from nearby light sources.

IP67 Certified: The Kenwood CMOS-740HD rearview camera is IP67 certified for waterproof and rustproof protection.

Mounting Bracket: The CMOS-740HD comes with a surface mount bracket that allows you to install the camera on top or below your vehicle's mounting surface. Once mounted, you are able to manually adjust the up and down angle of the camera. The bracket attaches to the camera via the included machine screws. The bracket includes self-stick tape and a self-tapping screw to secure the bracket to your vehicle.

Note: Make sure the camera's "Kenwood" logo is facing up so the camera image displays properly; if the camera "Kenwood" logo is facing down, the image will be upside down.

12V/24V Compatible: The Kenwood CMOS-740HD is 12-volt and 24-volt compatible for installation in a variety of vehicle types. The power (red) & ground (black) wires of the camera will need to be hardwired. Power can be obtained from a +12V accessory wire (switched) in the vehicle or at the radio. The ground will need to be connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.
