New BlackVue 4K Plus Dash Cams Available Now (DR970X-1CH Plus, DR970X-2CH Plus, DR970X-2CH LTE Plus)


    New BlackVue 4K Plus Dash Cams Available Now (DR970X-1CH Plus, DR970X-2CH Plus, DR970X-2CH LTE Plus)

    BlackVue just released new 4K Cloud-compatible dash cams featuring 4K Sony STARVIS 2 sensors, faster lens, HEVC compression and overall improved image quality. 

    The first batch of new 4K Plus models include the single-channel DR970X-1CH Plus, the dual-channel DR970X-2CH Plus and dual-channel with built-in LTE DR970X-2CH LTE Plus (North America and Global versions).

    New key features

    • New 4K Sony STARVIS 2 sensor: the 4K Plus models all feature an IMX678 sensor in the front camera, which delivers improved sensitivity in low light and better dynamic range. 
    • New fast (f/1.7 aperture) lens in the main camera: the large aperture lens allows the 4K Plus main cameras to gather more light compared to the f/2.8 lens of their predecessors, which in turn results in faster shutter speed, allowing to freeze the action and minimize blur.
    • Improved image signal processor (ISP) tuning: the dynamic range and overall fidelity has been improved across the board through expert optimization of a new chipset. In simple terms: the image looks better, especially at night and in high-contrast scenes where most cameras struggle to preserve detail in highlights and dark areas.
    • Twice longer Event buffer: the 4K Plus models feature a 10-second buffer up from 5 seconds for previous models.  This means the Event video clips recorded while driving or parked include ten seconds of action occurring before the triggering event. Those include detected motion in Motion & Impact Parking Mode, Manual Events triggered via the touch sensor on the side of the camera, or impact sensed by the accelerometer while driving or parked. 
    • HEVC/H.265 codec: the 4K Plus models feature the High-Efficiency Video Coding compression algorithm as the default, while also giving users the ability to choose the more widely supported AVC/H.264 codec. HEVC preserves details better and also allows recording at a higher bitrate of 60 Megabits per second (lower settings also available). 

    Other features common to all the models

    • 5GHz Wi-Fi connectivity: allows you to view and transfer video footage at fast speed via the BlackVue app.
    • Seamless Pairing: BlackVue’s hassle-free way of connecting to your dash cam with the BlackVue App. Secure, yet without the need to enter passwords or scan QR codes. 
    • GPS logging: records location and speed data, which can be displayed on the video footage and on a map in the app or viewer.
    • Native Parking Mode: monitors your vehicle when parked and automatically records any incidents or impacts, all while protecting your vehicle’s battery thanks to the built-in voltage monitor (including for the LTE models). Hardwiring cable included, along with 12V auxiliary power adapter.
    • Event and motion detection:automatically detects and records events such as collisions, sudden braking, and acceleration.
    • Event File Protection: preserve the last 50 Event videos at all times so you always have time to retrieve important footage without it getting overwritten. 
    • Adaptive Format-Free File Management: this BlackVue-developed file system improves recording stability and requires less microSD card formatting.
    • SD Card Failure Alert: even the best microSD cards can fail over time. To avoid bad surprises, BlackVue lets you know instantly (and continuously) with a “Please check SD card” voice alert.
    • Cloud compatibility: allows you to access and manage video footage remotely via the free BlackVue Cloud service (requires data plan).
    • Sub-stream technology: play back your footage instantly over Wi-Fi or the Cloud. BlackVue dash cams save “quick play” versions of the videos alongside the original high resolution footage.
