The first 4K UHD cloud dashcam, the DR900S Series, in single-channel and dual-channel - front 4K UHD | rear Full HD versions. Along with 4K recording, the new models feature HEVC compression, dual-band 2.4-5GHz Wi-Fi and BlackVue Over the Cloud connectivity, making it the ultimate car camera for protection when driving or parked.
The 4K Ultra High Definition resolution contains exactly four times as many pixels as Full HD, to be exact, it is 3840 pixels × 2160 lines which is equivalent to image quality with about 8.3 million pixels. For a dashboard camera, this can mean the difference between an unusable pixelated blur and a readable license plate. To take even greater advantage of the extra resolution, the DR900S Series packs an ultra-wide 162-degree lens. Although 4K resolution usually comes at the cost of low-light clarity, the large pixel size of the 8-megapixel sensor of the DR900S Series allows it to perform exceptionally well at night and in dark environments, while maintaining a low level of noise. In daylight, the ability to “freeze” the action is nothing short of spectacular, thanks to a high shutter speed, so users can clearly see the details of vehicles even in adjacent lanes at the edges of the screen.
While the 4K UHD resolution is an impressive feature in a dashcam, 4K content generally requires a lot more storage space than Full HD videos. For a dashcam, this could be a deal-breaker. Fortunately, the DR900S Series incorporates the best in video compression technology: HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), also referred to as H.265, is the leading standard in broadcasting and streaming of 4K video content. This major advance allows the DR900S Series to store as much 4K footage as a Full HD dashcam would with the more common H.264 standard. Although H.265 is the default setting, users can still opt for H.264.
As one of the first brands to incorporate Wi-Fi into dashcams years ago, BlackVue innovates once more with the inclusion of an 802.11n 2.4GHz / 802.11ac 5GHz dual-band Wi-Fi module. For smartphones and tablets supporting the 802.11ac 5GHz Wi-Fi standard, transfer speed can be up to three times faster than with 2.4GHz. But there is more: BlackVue also developed a new feature called Sub-Stream, which saves small-sized versions of the videos in parallel to the full-sized ones. The sub-streams can be downloaded in record time or used for quick preview when browsing the dashcam's videos with the BlackVue App. These enhancements benefit the user experience both when connecting to the dashcam via direct Wi-Fi or over the Cloud.
The BlackVue DR900S-2CH and DR900S-1CH models were launched at the "Reach for the Stars" event on 25 March 2018, our closed event with our dealers, partners, agents, medias and representatives from Pittasoft, Korea, the manufacturer for BlackVue dashcam.
We will showcase the most anticipated DR900S series to the public for the first time at the Cars@Expo, Singapore Expo Hall 4, Booth A06 on 7th and 8th April 2018. We expect stock to be available by the end of April 2018.
