Thinkware launches dashcam with ‘super night vision’ mode – the Thinkware X550
Thinkware has introduced a new dashcam with time lapse mode for recording while parked, and ‘super night vision’ for recording while dark, its called the Thinkware X550.
The Thinkware X550 camera features ‘Super Night Vision’ mode, which is optimised for dark parking environment, delivers up to 10 times more brightness than existing products in the market due to new image signal processing (ISP) technology and real-time video processing function.
The ‘Time Lapse Photography’ mode features an improved video storage method, allowing it to record the details of the parked vehicle continuously for almost two days, as opposed to relying on the g sensor and motion detection to record incidents with regular parking mode.
The camera also includes Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)’, which alerts drivers when swerving out of lane, the front vehicle departure warning (FVDW) informs drivers when the vehicle ahead is moving off and the front collision warning system (FCWS) advises drivers of when to brake by calculating the speed of your vehicle and that of the front vehicle in real time.
The Thinkware Dash Cam X550 is equipped with the Road Safety Warning System that provides audio and visual alerts for Lane Departure (LDWS), Front Collision (FCWS) and Front Vehicle Departure (FVDW). It detects road markings and gives voice warnings to the drivers if the vehicle begins to stray from its lane or when it is at risk of an imminent crash.
