The BlackVue DR900S Series world’s first 4K Ultra HD Cloud-connected dash cam
The DR900S is BlackVue’s range-topping dual camera model, engineered for the user who demands the finest video quality day and night. Featuring a stunning 4K UHD front camera with 8 megapixel CMOS sensor and Full HD 1080p rear camera with Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor for superb clarity.
Along with 4K recording, the DR900S Series features HEVC compression, dual-band 2.4-5GHz Wi-Fi and BlackVue Over the Cloud connectivity, making it the ultimate Dash Cam for protection when driving or while parked.
The 4K Difference
The 4K Ultra High Definition resolution contains exactly four times as many pixels as Full HD, 3840 pixels × 2160 lines to be exact, equivalent to 8.3 million pixels. For a dash cam, this can mean the difference between an unusable 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 DR900S-2CH packs a massive ultra-wide 162 degree lens on its front camera for incredible clarity and detail from edge-to-edge.
The DR900S-2CH performs 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.
When handling 4K footage, storage space is always going to be a primary concern, fortunately the DR900S-2CH incorporates the best in video compression technology: HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) is the leading standard in broadcasting and streaming of 4K video. This major advance allows the DR900S-2CH to store as much 4K footage on a 16GB microSD card as a standard Full HD dash cam would.
But it’s not only about the quality of the image, the DR900S-2CH includes GPS logging, Wi-Fi, Cloud connectivity and impact and motion detection – all in a discreet and compact design that is BlackVue’s signature.
