BlackVue DR900S-1CH Single Channel 4K GPS WiFi Cloud-Capable Dashcam
The DR900S-1CH is BlackVue's newest and best flagship dash cam. The BlackVue DR900S-1CH is a dash cam that records in 4K Ultra HD.
BlackVue's DR900S-1CH sets a new standard for technologically-connected, smart dash cams. Not only does the BlackVue DR900S-1CH offer BlackVue Over The Cloud, built-in GPS, and a direct WiFi connection, it also offers video quality and performance on a whole new level above any other dashcam line.
Speaking of video quality, the DR900S-1CH records at 30 frames per second with an incredible resolution of 3840x2160 (4K 2160p). The BlackVue DR900S-1CH can better capture important details of an event, such as those critical faces or license plate numbers and keeps the details sharp even during fast action. Driving at night? The 8MP CMOS sensor also offers low-light video capabilities far superior to older models.
Even though the camera records in 4K, users will not have to sacrifice resolution for longer recording times. The DR900S Series features H.265 codec, also called High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), the leading standard in 4K recording and broadcasting. With H.265, 4K UHD video file size is similar to that of Full HD H.264 found in previous versions. In other words, you get 4 times bigger and better images without sacrificing recording time. To maximize recording time: set Codec to H.265 and Quality to Normal.
The DR900S also now offers an "Event File Overwrite Protection" to prevent the latest 50 event files from being overwritten.
