Is your Current Dashcam up to the job?

Many people presume "any" vehicle dash camera that has a high resolution will be more than perfect for them. They also look for the cheapest, highest resolution camera and often forget the importance of the quality of the camera along with its functionality.

Why go to the trouble to source a camera which you *think* may fit your requirements to only find when you need to review the footage due to an accident, hit & run or damage in a car park that there either isn't any footage OR the footage that you have is so poor, it doesn't help you in any way.

Take a look at this first snapshot of a drivers Dashcam footage in which another driver actually undertook in a 30 zone.

The Dashcam has what sounds to be a great high resolution video image of 2560 pixels wide by 1090 pixels high.

However the number plate of the car undertaking is unreadable and very pixelated. The reason for this is that the Dashcamera's bitrate is only 7Mbps.

The bitrate is the bandwidth of how the data is laid down in the video file on the card.

In fact, the higher the resolution goes, so must the bitrate and even at 7Mbps on a 1920 x 1080 image, it is a very low bitrate for the quality that is required in a vehicle.

Currently the Blackvue 650s records at 1920 x 1080 7Mbps front camera and the rear is 1280 x 720 Mbps rear.

Now take a look at the contrasting image below of the next generation Goluk T1.

This records at 1920 x 1080 and has a staggering bitrate of 12Mbps, nearly double that of the blackvue and many more cameras.

The result is a clear image, no matter what is moving on the screen, the Goluk Camera can capture multiple vehicle registrations and other important information should you require it.

Here at Shield-IT, we ensure that we extensively review the technical aspects of the camera's that we install and recommend only the best.

We are currently installing both Goluk T1's and T3's UK wide at local prices.
