BlackVue DR900S-2CH 4K UHD Wi-Fi Cloud Dash Cam
4K UHD + FULL HD CLOUD DASHCAM
IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN
Front cam: 8 megapixels sensor / 4K Ultra High Definition (3840×2160 @30FPS).
Rear cam: 2.1 megapixels STARVIS™ sensor / Full HD (1920×1080 @30FPS).
The front camera’s ultra-wide 162-degree angle takes full advantage of the 4K UHD resolution.
The rear camera records in Full HD at a 139-degree angle with outstanding low-light sensitivity (great for cars with tint).
Your BlackVue captures critical details while driving or in Parking Mode.
With BlackVue Over the Cloud, check on your car from anywhere, anytime.
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, 4K UHD video file size is similar to that of Full HD H.264. In other words, you get 4 times bigger and better images without sacrificing recording time.
Increase your recording time in Full HD.
Tip to maximize recording time: set Codec to H.265 and Quality to Normal. Ideal for long Parking Mode sessions.
BUILT-IN GPS AND DUAL-BAND WI-FI
GPS ADDS LOCATION AND SPEED DATA TO YOUR VIDEOS
Speed: speed data will be 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: visualize 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. With BlackVue’s Sub-Stream technology, download Quick Play versions of the original videos for even faster review.
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.
SLEEK DESIGN AND CONTROLS
MULTIFUNCTION BUTTON AND CUSTOMIZABLE PROXIMITY SENSOR
BlackVue DR900S’ stealthy design incorporates easy access to useful functions.
Proximity sensor: toggle audio recording ON and OFF by simply waving your hand in front of it. The sensor can also be configured to trigger Manual Event videos in the settings.
Wi-Fi button: turn Wi-Fi ON/OFF (short press), reset your Wi-Fi password (hold until voice prompt, then short press) or format the microSD card (hold until voice prompt, and then hold again). All actions are confirmed by a voice prompt.
BLACKVUE APP (IOS, ANDROID) AND VIEWER (WINDOWS/MAC)
EASILY MANAGE YOUR VIDEO FILES
Both the BlackVue App and Viewer are free to download and use.
They let you easily change your BlackVue configuration settings and browse through your videos in an intuitive way.
With the BlackVue App, connect to your BlackVue via Wi-Fi to access files and check real-time Live View for easy setup and positioning of your dashcam.
OPTIMIZED FILE MANAGEMENT
Event Files Overwrite Protection:
Dashcams record in a loop, overwriting older files when the memory is full. BlackVue DR900S-2CH can prevent Event files (triggered manually or by impacts) overwriting. Up to fifty (50) files can be protected this way. You can choose to allow new Event files to overwrite past Event files, thus keeping the latest fifty.
Adaptive Format-Free File Management
This BlackVue-developed file system improves recording stability and requires less microSD card formatting.
Scheduled Reboots (see Parking Mode section below)
Your BlackVue comes equipped with a U1 (32GB) or U3 microSD Card (64GB, 128GB, 256GB), guaranteeing high transfer speed and tested for durability.
BLACKVUE OVER THE CLOUD
Connect to your BlackVue anytime, from anywhere in the world with BlackVue Over the Cloud.
Enjoy remote Live View and Push Notifications to your phone.
Back up important videos to the Cloud remotely.
Play and download videos from your dashcam’s memory or the Cloud from anywhere.
Enjoy Two-way Voice Communication with the driver from the app through the BlackVue’s integrated speaker and mic. Check the BlackVue Over the Cloud page for more information
TAMPER-PROOF CASE (OPTIONAL)
BLOCK ACCESS TO CABLE CONNECTORS AND FORMAT BUTTON
The BlackVue Tamper-Proof Case is a security accessory for BlackVue DR900S Series dashcams. It blocks physical access to the microSD card slot and microSD format button, 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.
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-2CH supports two Parking Mode options:
Motion & Impact Detection Parking Mode detects both:
- Motions recorded by the image sensor (marked “P” in the file list).
- Impacts detected by the accelerometer/G-sensor (marked “E” in the file list).
Choose detection regions to reduce the risk of triggering unwanted motion recordings due to trees swaying in the wind, far-away moving objects, etc.
Continuously records at 1FPS (one frame per second). Videos are played back at 30FPS.
1-minute Time lapse Parking Mode video = 30 minutes real time coverage.
Cover a period of more than 27 hours on a 16GB microSD card front and rear at the highest (Extreme) quality setting.
When an impact is 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.
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.
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 VIDEO
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.
