SmartyCam HD Revision 2
SmartyCam HD has been designed for motorsports with a single purpose: providing great videos that include all the technical information that will help you improve your performance. All this in the most robust and reliable system ever.
In its new version, the electronics/mechanics have been further improved, and SmartyCam HD is now even easier to manage.
Real Time Data Overlayed on videos
-SmartyCam HD overlays all the data you need from different sources.From GPS: track map and vehicle position, as well as speed, lap and split times.From AiM loggers connected to your ECU: RPM, throttle, engaged gear, acceleration, temperatures, pressures and - in presence of additional sensors - also their values. All this info will be overlayed on videos in each single point of the track.
Automatic Start and stop function
-You are on the starting grid, ready to sprint, your adrenaline reaching the climax: the last thing you can worry about is switching on the camera. You have other things to worry about.
SmartyCam HD is aware of that.That is why it switches on/off automatically and starts/stops recording the same way.
No "wave effect" with Global Shutter CMOS sensor
-Engine rumble causes vibrations, which are not a good thing for video recording.Never again will you experience that seasick "wave effect" you get when watching videos recorded by a generic camera, when the car rolls at 7000 RPM.SmartyCam HD has been designed for that environment and for those vibrations. "Wave effect" is just a memory.
Proprietary lenses designed for motorsports
- A lens specifically designed for motorsports must be robust, must be able to work when the engine rolls 100 times per second, and have good resolution and brightness.But above all a lens designed for motorsports must reduce distortion, which is a typical problem of lenses used by generic action-cameras: objects placed at ten meters' distance look very far, making it impossible to accurately determine whether the track is straight or curved.SmartyCam HD telecentric lens with six elements reduces distortion to the minimum and will withstand track vibrations for years.The narrow HFOV lens is preferred for closed-roof cars, as it "sees" the track just within the wind-screen pillars, reducing that unpleasant black frame around typical of generic camera on-board videos.
Front mount color TFT display for in-car installation
- On-board cameras are to be installed inside the car. Where should the display be placed to check the correct position of the camera? The SmartyCam HD 128x128 pixel TFT color display is on the front, not on rear - where general cameras place the viewfinder.
High-Quality small-size video files
- HD cameras competition is focused on the highest pixel number. The result is that their video files are far too large, taking too much memory.SmartyCam HD videos have the same quality as other HD cameras but their files are smaller because the H264 compression system parameters have been optimized to a perfect balance between video quality and file size.You can choose among three video file quality levels: one-hour recording takes 4GB (high quality), 2GB (normal) or 1,5GB (low).Files are stored on SD cards: with current SD cards reaching 128GB capacity, you can record more than 30 hours of high-quality videos without changing the card.
Designed to withstand extreme on-track working conditions
-Frail things have a bad time on track.An on-board camera designed for motorsports must guarantee great resistance against the extreme working conditions typical of track racing and against the most adverse weather, such as: strong and prolonged vibrations, storms, continuous rain, and extreme high and low temperatures.
Compact, handy and easy to install
-Its small size (87x63x49mm) and light weight (just 280g) make SmartyCam HD easy to install inside your car or on your bike.
