SmartyCam HD Rev.2.1 By AiM Changes Racecar Video Forever. AiM started with the game changing SmartyCam original (grey unit). When the SmartyCam grew again to the HD (black box) the already loved features remained and even a few more were added. Now we present the SmartyCam HD Rev.2. The culmination of every video camera AiM has produced. Other cameras systems sorry....Check and Mate
SmartyCam HD Revision 2.1 automatically overlays on videos all the data you need: speed, RPM, lap number, gear shifts and much more. Simply choose the data and the graphic layout you prefer in the huge selection of overlays available.
What Kind of Data:
SmartyCam HD overlays data from different sources on the videos themselves. From GPS: track map and vehicle position, as well as speed, lap and split times. From AiM logger connected to your ECU: RPM, throttle, engaged gear, acceleration, temperatures, pressures and - in presence of additional sensors - also their values. All these info will be overlayed on videos in each single point of the track.
SmartyCam HD uses the newest Race Studio 3, the powerful software which allows to configure all details of your videos and to get plenty of fun and information out of them.
You can configure your overlays in a virtually infinite variety of modes: add your logo and the track map, and choose your graphic objects from a list of pre-determined sets with same layout or even single objects from different sets. Your videos will be truly "yours" in all details, from the data to their graphic layouts
The video of a whole session, once downloaded on your PC, can now be split - with a simple click - in individual videos of each lap: so that you can simultaneously watch two of them and check where you were faster or slower. The same operation can be performed with any SmartyCam HD video recorded on the same track: you will be able to compare your best lap with your friends personal best!
A lens specifically designed for motorsports must be robust, must be able to work when the engine rolls 100 times per second, and have good resolution and brightness.
But above all a lens designed for motorsports must reduce distortion, which is a typical problem of lenses used by generic action-cameras: objects placed at ten meters' distance look very far, making it impossible to accurately determine whether the track is straight or curved.
SmartyCam HD telecentric lens with six elements reduces distortion to the minimum and will withstand track vibrations for years. Moreover the lenses with different HFOV's allow a tailor-made framing in all kind of vehicles.
