Have you ever gotten into a traffic accident and argued till kingdom come despite it not being your fault? Have you noticed a crime being committed in front of you while you’re waiting at the traffic lights, and you want to help the victim but can’t offer much details? Transcend Information, Inc. a leading manufacturer of storage and multimedia products from Taiwan, has introduced the complete DrivePro Car Video Recorder series, to remember the details and be your eyewitness on the road day or night.
Every model in the DrivePro series captures crystal-clear Full HD 1080P (1920 x 1080) video at 30 frames per second, recording everything happening on the road with its wide 130° to 160° viewing angle and large aperture lens. This comes in handy to settle any traffic disputes and even to record third-party accidents or crime.
DrivePro safeguards your video record with its built-in battery to keep recording for 30 seconds in the event of power failure or interruption, plus the G-sensor emergency recording function protects video files from erasure after any unusual shock or impact is detected. The Auto Power On/Off feature ensures your DrivePro is ready whenever you need it.
The bright built-in 2.4″ color LCD screen lets you review video at any time, and your recordings can also be copied to PCs and other devices, and viewed with Transcend’s free-to-download DrivePro PC Tool for Windows. There’s also a quick snapshot feature to take photos at any time.
Capture every detail and every moment
The camera is built to the highest optical standards to capture critical details such as license plates, even in sub-optimal conditions. The DrivePro camera uses up to 6 or even 7 glass lenses, plus an infrared filter lens, for sharp and clear images. Unlike competing products, this design avoids fogging from heat generated during long periods of operation, reliably recording in difficult conditions. The large aperture of the lens, from F/1.8 up to F/2.0, ensures clarity in low light.
Powerful navigation, driving assistance, and safety features
There is a DrivePro camera for all budget ranges – from the entry-level DrivePro 100 to the DrivePro 200 and 220 to the powerful DrivePro 520. Features available in the range include GPS, rear-facing in-car camera, collision warning and driving assistance, and a mobile app with Wi-Fi connectivity.
The top-of-the-line DrivePro 520 features a dual lens camera where you can clearly capture both the road and the interior of the vehicle simultaneously, thanks to the rotatable rear lens with infrared LEDs for night vision.
Both the DrivePro 520 and the DrivePro 220 record GPS coordinates along with video, to precisely determine the location of an incident, or to display your journey path later on with the free PC software.
The DrivePro 220 also offers innovative driving assistance functions, including Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) to keep a safe distance at speed, Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) to warn if the vehicle is drifting out its lane while moving at high speed, and Parking Mode, to record video and capture evidence automatically if the car is bumped while parked unattended. These are useful additional driving safety features for your current car if you can’t yet afford a new car with such safety features.
DrivePro series car video recorders all include a free microSD Card (Transcend is a well-known maker of memory cards in case you didn’t know), and are available with a choice of either a suction mount or adhesive mount and include a car lighter power adapter. Additionally, there are accessories such as additional mounts, car lighter power adapters and high endurance, shock resistant microSDXC/SDHC memory cards for extended recording or to archive video. Every DrivePro product is protected by Transcend’s two-year Limited Warranty.
The recommended retail prices (including GST) are: RM 399 for DP100; RM 549 for DP200; RM 649 for DP220 and RM 849 for DP520. The DrivePro range is locally distributed by Amble Action Sdn Bhd (Contact: 03-7968-6899 or visit ambleaction.com.my).
