Transcend Releases DrivePro 100 Car Video Recorder with Large F/1.8 Aperture
Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a leading manufacturer of storage and multimedia products, today proudly announced the release of its DrivePro 100 Car Video Recorder. Featuring a large F/1.8 aperture, a built-in battery, a handy snapshot feature, a high-quality Full HD imaging sensor, and a G-sensor emergency recording function, the DrivePro 100 provides its users with comprehensive protection on the road.
Large F/1.8 Aperture and Handy Snapshot Feature
Featuring a large F/1.8 aperture, the DrivePro 100 can automatically adjust for different lighting conditions and capture all details of an incident, including license plates, during either daytime or nighttime. The DrivePro 100’s camera integrates a wide 130° viewing angle and a Full HD imaging sensor for clear and smooth 1080p (30fps) recordings. In addition, the 6 glass lenses plus 1 infrared filter lens are designed to prevent fogging from heat generated during extended recordings and to ensure the whole trip is recorded in high clarity. The handy snapshot feature allows users to take snapshots while recording video, or to capture collision damage outside the vehicle.
Built-in Battery to Ensure Non-Stop Recording
With a built-in Li-Polymer battery, there is no need to worry about sudden power failure caused by traffic incidents. When the car loses power, the DrivePro 100 continues to record for up to 30 seconds, ensuring that important evidence is captured. Alternatively, the DrivePro 100 can be manually activated to record up to 30 minutes on a fully charged battery without a power supply.
Motion G-Sensor for Emergency Recording
The DrivePro 100’s built-in G-Sensor instantly triggers the Emergency Recording mode for up to 1 minute (30 seconds before and after the incident) when it detects an impact during recording. Alternatively, users can also activate the emergency recording mode manually by pressing the red emergency button; this is useful when situations occur outside the vehicle and you need to collect evidence in case of a fraudulent claim or lawsuit. Video files recorded in emergency mode are protected from being overwritten.
Transcend’s Exclusive DrivePro PC Tool
The DrivePro PC Tool features a user-friendly interface that can sort video files by file, date, or group, allowing the consumers using Windows system to select and play videos recorded on the DrivePro 100 without the need to install separate codecs. The tool also includes a useful screenshot function for reporting incidents to insurance companies or police.
16GB microSDHC Memory Card Included
The bundled accessories ensure easy installation and operation. After the DrivePro 100 is mounted on the windshield and connected to the lighter socket, further driver involvement is not required. When the vehicle’s engine is turned on, video files are automatically recorded to the included high-quality 16GB microSDHC MLC memory card that offers consistent durability and endurance. Moreover, with Loop Recording enabled, the oldest video files in the memory card will be overwritten by new files when memory card capacity is full; eliminating the need to purchase additional storage.
