4K Cloud Dashcams

Redefining the Dashcam.

The BlackVue DR900S Series redefines expectations for dashcam video fidelity and storage efficiency. The front camera’s 8-megapixel CMOS sensor captures 4K Ultra High Definition video—four times as many pixels as Full HD. All the imaging prowess of your dashcam is kept intact thanks to the most advanced video encoding technology: the HEVC (H.265) compression means your videos look better and file size is kept as small as ever.

4K ULTRA HIGH DEFINITION CAPTURE

ULTRA-CRISP VIDEOS, NOT JUST ON 4K MONITORS

4K UHD is four times as many pixels as Full HD*. This is a huge difference, and it shows.
License plates can be made out more clearly and from further away.
Besides, you don’t need a 4K monitor to appreciate 4K videos.
Even on a Full HD monitor, you can zoom in much further without any visible pixelation.
*HD = 1280×720 pixels (0.92 million pixels);
Full HD = 1920×1080 (2.07 million pixels) = 2.25 x HD pixel count
4K UHD = 3840×2160 (8.29 million pixels) = 4 x Full HD or 9 x HD pixel count

THE BEST COMPRESSION TECHNOLOGY

4 TIMES THE RESOLUTION. SAME RECORDING TIME!

Along with the regular H.264 codec, the DR900S Series features H.265, also called High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), the leading standard in 4K recording and broadcasting.

With H.265, you get 4K UHD video files that are no larger than Full HD H.264 files, while retaining image quality. In other words, you get 4 times bigger and better images without sacrificing recording time.

blackvue-hevc-compresssion-h265
blackvue-ac-wi-fi-5ghz

Built-in GPS and Fast Wi-Fi

GPS ADDS LOCATION AND SPEED DATA TO YOUR VIDEOS

Speed: speed data is overlaid in the video (can be turned off in the settings).
You can set speed display in Kilometers per hour (Km/h) or Miles per hour (Mph).
Location: view your vehicle’s location in the BlackVue App or Viewer’s Map.

FAST TRANSFER TO YOUR PHONE WITH 5GHZ WI-FI

The dual-band 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi lets you download dashcam videos to a smartphone at blazing speed and allows Over the Cloud functionalities via any Internet-enabled Wi-Fi network. 

BUILT-IN IMPACT & MOTION DETECTION

MARK IMPORTANT FILES AND ENABLE PARKING MODE

While driving, your BlackVue detects impacts and sudden changes in speed. While parked, it also detects movements*.

Videos files are marked accordingly so that you can easily find the relevant ones in the BlackVue Viewer for Windows and Mac OS or the BlackVue App for Android and iOS.

(*) For Parking Mode recording, an external battery pack (Power Magic Battery Pack) or a hardwiring kit (Power Magic Pro) is required. Learn more about Parking Mode.

TAMPER-PROOF CASE (OPTIONAL)

The BlackVue Tamper-Proof Case is a security accessory for BlackVue DR750S Series dashcams. It blocks physical access to the microSD card slot, and prevents unplugging the power and coaxial cables, thus highly reducing risks of data tampering.

INTELLIGENT PARKING MODE MONITORING

with the Power Magic accessories.

Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your car is under protection while you are away.

Parking Mode Kit

Parking Mode Batteries

BlackVue automatically switches to Parking Mode to monitor your parked vehicle.
Thanks to video buffer, the few seconds leading to triggering events are also recorded.
DR900S Series supports two Parking Mode options:

Motion & Impact Detection mode

  • Region - Based
    Motion Detection

Motion & Impact Detection Parking Mode detects both:

  • Motions recorded by the image sensor (Parking Mode files marked “P” in the file list).
  • Impacts detected by the accelerometer/G-sensor (Event files marked “E” in the file list).

With the DR900S and DR750S Series dashcams, users have the added possibility to choose detection regions to reduce the risk of triggering too many motion recordings due to trees swaying in the wind, far away moving objects, etc.

Time lapse mode

  • Time Lapse +
    Buffered Events

Time Lapse Parking Mode allows your dashcam to continuously record at 1FPS (one frame per second). Videos are played back at 30FPS.

Each 1-minute Time lapse Parking Mode video covers a real-time period of 30 minutes (Time lapse Parking Mode files are marked “P” in the file list).

This mode allows to cover a period of more than 27 hours on a 16GB microSD card for a dual-channel model at the highest (Extreme) quality setting.

Additionally, when impacts are detected, the dashcam creates a buffered Event video.

Parking Mode Event Voice Notifications:

Upon exiting Parking Mode, your BlackVue tells you if Events were recorded when you were away from your car, so you can check right away the Event videos on the BlackVue App.

Scheduled Reboot:

Schedule a daily automatic reboot (optional—at night by default) to minimize potential errors. Reboots happen only if the dashcam is in Parking Mode and not writing data to the microSD card. 

Super Stealthy:

Completely turn off all LED indicators in Parking Mode. Only the recording LED indicator facing the interior of the vehicle will blink when motion or impact is detected.

DESERT-TESTED DASHCAM

Wondering how well the DR900S Series fares when it comes to heat resistance and overall reliability?

Good news! The DR900S Series was put to the test in the most extreme conditions and came out unscathed.

See how Caballo del Diablo drivers Boyd Jaynes and Brian Godfrey took the 4K BlackVue dashcam on a bumpy, dusty and hot ride for five days straight in the NORRA Mexican 1000 race.
