The U1000’s Image Sensors allow constant front 4K UHD resolution recording during both daytime and nighttime along with a 150-degree wide angle lens view. This will minimize blind spots to assure recording of all events without fail.
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 U1000 uses Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology to record a clear, visible video in any situation- while driving or parked.
When you are driving under bright sunlight, coming out of a tunnel, or getting under the shadow of a tall building etc, 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.
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.
This mode is activated automatically when you start the engine. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism.Incident 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 soon after an impact has been detection by built-in G-senor, U1000 will wake up within a second and start recording for next 20 seconds of the period.
