The newest model from Thinkware comes with a low profile and a sleek, modern design.

The Q800 Pro features a 2K QHD front-facing camera and an optional 1080p Full HD rear-facing camera.

Quad HD (2560×1440p)

Capturing four times more than standard 1080p HD, the Q800 will show you every single detail in crystal clear form, fully reinforcing your account of events. This is consistent during both daytime and nighttime. 


VIVID IMAGE CAPTURING AT 1440P QHD RESOLUTION

Capturing four times more than standard 1080p HD, the Q800 will show you every single detail in crystal clear form, fully reinforcing your account of events. This is consistent during both daytime and nighttime.  


Super Night Vision 2.0

Videos recorded in a low-light environment, such as dark alleys or parking lots, may not be clearly identifiable. SUPER NIGHT VISION 2.0 in the Q800 Pro uses Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology to record a clear, visible video in any situation - whether driving, or parked. Day, or night.  

SUPER NIGHT VISION employs the new ISP (Image Signal Processing) technology and the real-time image processing function to bring 10 times brighter images than our earlier models when recorded under nighttime parking mode.

SONY EXMOR R STARVIS IMAGE SENSOR

The Sony Exmor R STARVIS Image Sensor applied to the Q800 PRO provides perfect image processing even in low-light environments while rich colours combine to create optimal resolution. STARVIS technology improves Exmor R’s low light sensitivity by providing optimal image quality in visible ray and near-infrared range, allowing clear imaging in low light environments. 






ENERGY SAVING PARKING RECORDING

Energy saving parking recording will reduce power consumption by 1/3 less and gives 3x longer video recording than normal parking mode. When you are away on a holiday or leaving your car for quite some time, energy saving parking recording is a recommended solution. When in use, the Q800 PRO will go to sleep and as soon as a collision is detected by its built-in G-senor, the Q800 PRO will wake up within a second and start recording for the next 20 seconds of the incident.





Time Lapse

Important clips and images may get deleted due to insufficient memory space during long continuous recordings, especially in standard parking recording mode which requires large memory for saving 15 to 30 frames per second. 


*Parking recording mode can be activated upon installing the Q800 PRO with the hardwiring cable provided.



*Parking recording mode can be activated upon installing the F800 Pro with the hardwiring cable provided.


GEO FENCING

Geo-Fencing allows drivers to stay alert of the vehicle location. When your vehicle goes into or outside of a certain radical area, the Q800 PRO will send you a push notification through the mobile app, called “THINKWARE CLOUD”. This is more practical for the parents, rental companies, and for fleet management. The radius can be set by typing the address or by using pinpoint on the mobile app. You may set 20 different radical areas with the size from 100m up to 600km. 




LOCATE VEHICLE

Locate Vehicle will help drivers to find the vehicle’s current location. F800 PRO will update its current location in every 10 seconds. Then it will display current location with speed and the heading direction integrated on google map.





DRIVING IMPACT NOTIFICATION

In the event of a crash, the alert feature can help the driver to notify others of an emergency situation when the driver is not in the condition to do so. The family or the owner of the car can then remotely check on the situation from their location.

When the car experiences an impact with a g-force level greater than 3g or 4g while driving, the dash cam will automatically send a push notification alert of the impact to the user’s smartphone logged in to the “THINKWARE CLOUD” app. A 20 second video of the incident (10 seconds before and after the incident) is also saved on the THINKWARE CLOUD server, and a push notification alert of the video is sent to the user, which can be checked later and downloaded from the app. 




* No new videos can be recorded while saving the 20 seconds of first impact file.
** If a second or third impact is detected, an additional push notification alert of the impact is sent to the user’s smartphone.
And if those impacts are within 10 seconds from the first impact, it can be seen in the remaining seconds of the first impact file
(e.g. If, a second impact is detected 2 seconds from the first impact, 8 seconds are the duration of the second impact video).
*** Capacity per user: 520MB – Strong impact videos of 50MB will be uploaded. (10 uploads for 1CH or 5 uploads for 2CH)
**** When the capacity is exceeded: The oldest files are deleted and overwritten with the new videos.
***** The service behavior and the transmission may vary depending on the server environment and your mobile data.

Road Safety Warning System

The THINKWARE DASH CAM Q800 PRO is equipped with the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Front Collision Warning System (FCWS), Urban Front Collision Warning System (UFCWS) and Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW) to ensure driver safety with a voice warning. This can also be switched on or off as to the preference of the driver. 

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

Drowsy or distracted driving greatly increases the chance of an accident on the road. The Lane Departure Warning System will alert the driver when the vehicle goes off the lane in a speed over 50 km/h.


Front Collision Warning System (FCWS)

Accidents can be avoided by maintaining a safe following distance. Road Safety Warning System in the Q800 PRO calculates the real-time distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you while driving above 30 km/h in expressways or under 30 km/h in a busy city, and issues a 3-level early warning to the driver depending on the danger of collision.

Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW)

When your car is stopped at an intersection or in traffic, the intelligent guidance system informs you that the vehicle in front has started to move, preventing a delayed response just in case you stop looking ahead.


140* Wide Viewing Angle

140-degree wide viewing angle lens will minimize blind spots to ensure all events are recorded.




State Of The Art Video Enhancement Technology

THINKWARE DASH CAMs are equipped with state-of-the-art video enhancement technology, ensuring the most vivid video recordings under any circumstance.

Wide Dynamic Range



When you are driving under bright sunlight, coming out of a tunnel, or under the shadow of a tall building, a sudden change in frontal light exposure levels can result in excessively bright or dark recordings. The WDR function eliminates excessively bright spots on the recording to correct its colour balance in order to ensure a clear image.


Nighttime Picture Quality Correction



Images from the videos recorded during nighttime driving on dark streets are generally difficult to make out. The enhancement Sensors of THINKWARE DASH CAMs come with a standard function of brightness and colour control as well as noise cancellation.


Automatic Exposure



A sudden rise of light exposure caused by strong sunlight or headlight beams of the oncoming vehicle may cause difficulties to assess the situation. Also, the lack of lighting in a dark tunnel or night driving may pose the same problem. The automatic light exposure function controls the level of light exposure to maintain vivid and clear video recordings in all circumstances.



Various Autonomous Recording Modes

Continuous Recording Mode

This mode is activated automatically when you start the engine. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism.

Event Recording Mode

The Active Impact Monitoring System will automatically store the video data ten seconds prior to and after a collision registered by the 3-axis G-Sensor.

Manual Recording Mode

Similar to a video camera, you can use the Manual Recording Mode to capture events that occur in front of your vehicle whether or not it is in motion.

Energy Saving Mode

The dash cam will go to sleep and as soon an impact has been detection by its built-in G-senor, the Q800 PRO will wake up within a second and start recording for the next 20 seconds.

The GPS helps you accurately assess the status of the accident by providing you with the vehicle speed, the direction of the collision and the severity of an impact. The DASH CAM not only records driving footage but can also be used to track and recall past driving routes whether it be work or holiday routes.
* The Q800 Pro comes with built-in GPS.
