4K VIDEO FIDELITY
BlackVue is a global leader and innovator in the field of in-car video technology and has always put image quality at the forefront of their product development. The DR970X-2CH is BlackVue’s range-topping dual camera model, engineered for the user who demands the finest video quality day and night. Featuring a 4K UHD front camera with 8-megapixel CMOS sensor and Full HD 1080p rear camera with Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor for superb clarity.
The 4K Ultra High Definition resolution contains four times as many pixels as Full HD, 3840 pixels × 2160 lines to be exact, equivalent to 8.3 million pixels. This can mean the difference between a pixelated blur and a readable licence plate, especially at speed or in low light conditions. To take even greater advantage of the extra resolution, the DR970X-2CH includes an ultra-wide 155° lens on its front camera for incredible clarity and detail from edge-to-edge. The DR970X-2CH performs exceptionally well at night and in dark environments, while maintaining a low level of noise. During daylight, and thanks to a high shutter speed, the DR970X’s ability to freeze the action is invaluable, capturing crucial details even in adjacent lanes at the edges of the screen.
ALWAYS-ON VIDEO SECURITY
A BlackVue isn’t just a simple dash cam, it’s a complete video surveillance system, keeping an eye and ear on your vehicle even when you’re not around, thanks Intelligent Parking Mode. When parked it uses motion and vibration sensors to detect events, recording and storing video clips for later viewing, or informing you LIVE via the BlackVue Cloud app and a suitable 4G connection – through the night if necessary, without depleting your vehicle’s battery thanks to the in-built voltage monitor and shut-off.
INTELLIGENT PARKING MODE
Dash cams are designed to record your drive, but did you know that the BlackVue DR970X can also monitor your vehicle when you’re not around? BlackVue’s unique Intelligent Parking Mode is ideal if you worry about hit-and-runs, theft or vandalism while your vehicle is parked and left unattended. The DR970X-2CH automatically switches to Parking Mode when the ignition is switched off, and will continue to monitor you’re your vehicle, recording and storing events for review later – or alerting you in real time via the BlackVue app if you are using the optional CM100LTE 4G connectivity module. Video buffering ensures that your camera will also record the seconds leading up to the event, ensuring you have the whole picture. The DR970X-2CH’s in-built power management circuitry ensures that your camera will never deplete your vehicle’s battery when operating overnight, switching-off should the car’s battery level drop below a pre-set level. For extended recording times simply add a BlackVue B-130X battery.
The DR970X-2CH supports two Parking Mode options; Motion and Impact Detection, and Time Lapse. Motion and Impact detection mode uses your cameras image sensor to detect movement, and the inbuilt accelerometer/G-sensor to detect bumps or impacts. To reduce the number of unwanted recordings triggered by motion and movement, the DR970X-2CH can specify areas to ignore, eliminating recordings triggered by things like swaying trees, far-away moving objects, etc. In Time Lapse mode, to reduce the size of the video files and save SD card space, the camera will continuously record at just 1FPS (one frame per second), rather than the standard 30/60 FPS. All event clips however are recorded at full resolution and 30FPS. A standard 64GB microSD card can store over 96hrs of time lapse video at the highest (Extreme) video quality level.
