Safety 1st Color-View Video Monitor Boasts High-Resolution LCD Screen for Clearest View of Baby Convenient Crib Mount Capability Innovates the CategoryCANTON, MA (May 12, 2005) - Dorel Juvenile Group USA, an operating subsidiary of Dorel Industries Inc. (TSX: DII.SV, DII.MV; NASDAQ: DIIB), unveils the latest design in portable color video monitors. The Color-View Video Monitor from Safety 1st boasts a high-resolution 2.5" color LCD screen and a crib mounting option to help parents maintain a clear, close-up view of their growing child.
Safety 1st's Color-View Video Monitor showcases the latest developments in monitor technology. The advanced 2.4 GHz technology color LCD screen on the portable Parent Unit provides a crisp, clear image of baby whether parents are four or 400 feet away. Thanks to the unit's lightweight, compact design, caregivers can take this reassuring image with them as they move freely about the home.
It's also easy to customize the Color-View Video Monitor as children grow. When monitoring an infant, parents enjoy the unique advantage of attaching the camera to the side of their baby's crib for an unbeatable close-up view. An adjustable mounting post secures the camera quickly and easily to the side of the crib. It also keeps the power cord out of baby's reach. The camera can be mounted to the wall or placed on bedside furniture to monitor older children.
The Color-View Video Monitor also includes peace of mind features like multiple channels for increased privacy, a rechargeable Parent Unit for added convenience and automatic night vision for viewing a child in a darkened nursery or bedroom.
Vinnie D'Alleva, Vice President of Marketing for Dorel Juvenile Group USA, says that the Safety 1st Color-View Video Monitor is a big step forward. "This innovative monitoring system delivers on all the qualities that are important to today's parents. Parents want the same visual clarity from their video monitoring system that they get from their home entertainment system. The Color-View Video Monitor provides that higher level of clarity for added reassurance."
The Safety 1st Color-View Video Monitor will be available in September, 2005 at Babies "R" Us, Toys "R" Us and specialty stores for $199.99. To learn more about Dorel Juvenile Group USA and its complete line of dependable child monitoring solutions, please visit www.djgusa.com.
