In-car video

by Mark Rowe

The compact BlackSys in-car video and audio recorder is exclusively available through COP Security.

The BlackSys vehicle camera records all a motorist sees and hears while driving. Fixed to a vehicle windscreen and powered from the cigarette jack like a Sat-Nav, BlackSys automatically records the driver’s view, as well as all audio data from inside the vehicle.

The BlackSys camera has wide dynamic range (WDR) functionality, producing high-quality, D1 resolution video images in even the most demanding lighting the Oldham-based firm says, from bright sunshine through to almost total darkness. Its wide angle lens ensures the camera captures images that would also appear in the driver’s peripheral vision.

Up to eight hours of video and audio data can be recorded onto a single, removable, 4Gb micro-SD card fitted in the camera. This can be played back on any Windows PC. A GPS option for BlackSys will also link driver speed, location and Google map details to the corresponding video. A G-Sensor feature detects any jolt or bump in the car, automatically recording 10 seconds before and after the event. An emergency button on the driver’s side of the BlackSys, when pressed, does the same. All events are tagged and archived for retrieval.

At 100mm tall, 58mm wide and 29mm deep, BlackSys is a compact camera providing evidence of driving behaviour and accidents. Some insurers are already offering reduced premiums for drivers using in car cameras, the distributor adds. For more information on COP Security – call 01457 874 999 or visit
