has been designed for motorsports, by people exactly like you, who have spent their life on the track. SmartyCam HD was designed with a single purpose: providing great videos that include all the technical information that will help you improve your performance. All this comes in the most robust and reliable system ever.
Real Time Data Overlayed on Video
SmartyCam HD automatically overlays on videos all the data you need: speed, RPM, lap number, gear shifts and much more.Simply choose the data and the graphic layout you prefer in the huge selection of overlays available. SmartyCam HD overlays data from different sources on the videos themselves. From GPS: track map and vehicle position, as well as speed, lap and split times. From AiM logger connected to your ECU: RPM, throttle, engaged gear, acceleration, temperatures, pressures and - in presence of additional sensors - also their values. All these info will be overlayed on videos in each single point of the track.
Automatic Recording Start & Stop
When you are sitting on the starting grid, ready to sprint, your adrenaline reaching it's climax: the last thing you can worry about is Turning on Your Camera. You have other things to worry about. SmartyCam HD is aware of that. That is why it switches on & off automatically and starts or stops recording the same way.
SmartyCam HD can be switched on by the logger it is connected to. Switch-off is automatic, too: simply decide after what period of non-activity the camera will switch-off. Both operations can also be carried out using the keyboard, if you prefer.
Recording can also be started/stopped automatically or via keyboard. With automatic switch-on, the camera will start recording when the speed or RPM threshold is exceeded. In this case, you simply decide how long after dropping below the selected threshold the video will automatically stop.
Proprietary Lens System Degines for Motorsports
A lens specifically designed for motorsports must be robust, must be able to work when the engine rolls 100 times per second, and have good resolution and brightness.
But above all a lens designed for motorsports must reduce distortion, which is a typical problem of lenses used by generic action-cameras: objects placed at ten meters' distance look very far, making it impossible to accurately determine whether the track is straight or curved.
No "Wave Effect" with Global Shutter CMOS Sensor
Engine rumble causes vibrations, which are not a good thing for video recording. Never again will you experience that seasick "wave effect" you get when watching videos recorded by a generic camera, when the car rolls at 7000 RPM. SmartyCam HD has been designed for that environment and for those vibrations. "Wave effect" is just a memory.
