SmartyCam GP HD
The bullet-cam designed for motorsports
SmartyCam GP 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. SmartyCam GP HD is a quite versatile system, easy to install on cars, bikes, karts: robust and reliable, it has been engineered to withstand the extreme working conditions typical of motorsports.
Real time data overlayed on videos
SmartyCam GP HD automatically overlays on videos all the data you need: speed, RPM, lap number, gear shifts and much more.
Simply choose the data and the graphic layout you prefer in the huge selection of overlays available.
Automatic Start & Stop
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.
That is why SmartyCam GP HD can be switched on/off automatically by the logger it is connected to: simply decide after what period of non-activity the camera will have to switch-off. Both operations can also be carried out using the keyboard, if you prefer.
Recording can also be started/stopped automatically or via keyboard: the camera will start recording when the speed or RPM threshold is exceeded. You simply decide how long after dropping below the selected threshold the video will automatically stop.
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 GP HD has been designed for that environment and for those vibrations. "Wave effect" is just a memory.
Lenses designed to reduce distortion
eneric action cameras are designed to record videos in many different situations, such as skiing or surfing, but in motorsports they tend to record misleading videos.
Those cameras straighten out the view ahead: when on track, the corners simply disappear.
So, when you wish to check your track performance, those videos are useless, because the images are distorted.
Being a camera dedicated to motorsports, SmartyCam GP HD features lenses specifically designed to avoid distortion.
The camera is available in two versions:
The Narrow 67 Deg 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.
The Wide 84 Deg HFOV lens is specific for open-roof and formula car use, where it is possible to have a more ample view of the track and there is no risk of black frames.
Wide Color TFT display
The wide SmartyCam GP HD 240x320 pixel TFT color display makes installation and aiming very easy.
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
The small bullet size (24 diam x 73.5 mm) and light weight (just 55 g) make SmartyCam GP HD easy to install inside or outside your car/bike. To make installation even easier, a wide range of brackets are available too.
