BlackVue™ DR900X 2CH
The Single-Channel Dashcam Benchmark
The BlackVue DR900X Series is a 4K Ultra HD Cloud-connected dashboard camera that takes video fidelity to a whole new performance level.
4K in a dashcam is not a gimmick. It is a game-changer. It is not about playing videos on a giant screen–although you could do that too. It’s about providing video proof.
A dashcam is only as good as its ability to capture crucial details–usually license plate numbers. The 8-megapixel 4K UHD sensor does just that by capturing 4 times as many pixels as in Full HD. And with its fast shutter speed, details are frozen in place. Just pause and zoom in.
Capture everything front and rear
Front camera: 8 megapixels CMOS sensor recording in 4K Ultra High Definition (3840×2160) at 30FPS.
Rear camera: 2.1 megapixels Sony STARVIS™ recording in Full HD (1920×1080) at 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.
Native Parking Mode with built-in voltage monitor to protect your vehicle battery (hardwiring cable included).
With the free BlackVue Cloud service, check on your car from anywhere, anytime.
Fast Wi-Fi, GPS and Optional LTE
GPS: visualize the location of your vehicle on the map during video playback and overlay speed on videos (can be hidden in settings).
Wi-Fi: connect to your BlackVue with a smartphone or tablet and download files at blazing speed. Wi-Fi also lets your BlackVue connect to BlackVue Cloud via any home or mobile Wi-Fi hotspot (router).
LTE: connect the optional LTE connectivity module* via the USB port for the best Cloud experience. (*) SIM card not included.
No need to sacrifice recording time
With bigger resolution come bigger files…unless you have better compression.
High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) is the standard in 4K video broadcasting and streaming.
With HEVC, you get great-looking 4K videos but the same recording time as a regular Full HD dashcam.
Who said you can’t have it all?
Native Parking Mode
Hardwiring cable included
DR900X Series can be hardwired to your vehicle’s fuse panel for Parking Mode, without requiring optional accessories. The dashcam will switch to Parking Mode automatically when the vehicle ignition is turned off. Voltage cutoff and timer can be set in the BlackVue App.
Parking Mode accessories support
DR900X Series is also compatible with all BlackVue Parking Mode Kits and Batteries.
Your videos are safe
Event Files Overwrite Protection: dashcams record in a loop, overwriting older files when the memory is full. BlackVue DR900S-1CH 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.
SD Card Failure Alert: your BlackVue detects as soon as the microSD card fails and warns you with a “Please check SD card” voice alert.
Built-in Impact & Motion Detection
Automatically tags important files
While driving, your BlackVue detects impacts and sudden changes in speed. While parked, it also detects movements*.
Use the filters in the BlackVue App and Viewer All videos are tagged (Normal, Event, Parking Mode motion or time-lapse), 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.
Event Files Overwrite Protection:
Programmable 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 with the push of a button. All actions are confirmed by a voice prompt.
Manage Videos Easily with the BlackVue App and Viewer
The BlackVue App (iOS/Android) and Viewer (Windows/Mac OS) are free to download and use.
Both allow you to change settings and review videos sorted by time and type (Normal/Event/Parking).
With the BlackVue App, connect via Wi-Fi to your dashcam to retrieve videos on the spot.
Me and My Car. Connected.
Connect to your BlackVue anytime, from anywhere in the world with BlackVue 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.
Check the BlackVue Cloud page for more information.
LTE Connectivity Module (Optional)
The CM100LTE connects to your compatible BlackVue X Series dashcam to provide easy 4G LTE connectivity. All you need is a valid Nano SIM card. The CM100LTE connects via the USB port of your dashcam. Your BlackVue powers the module and automatically accesses the Cloud when the module is plugged in.
Note: when purchasing, make sure the CM100LTE you choose is compatible with your mobile carrier’s network. Not compatible with DR590X Series.
Tamper Proof Case (Optional)
The BlackVue Tamper-Proof Case is a security accessory for BlackVue DR900X 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.
PARKING MODE MONITORING
with Power Magic Pro, Power Magic Battery Pack or Power Magic Ultra Battery
Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your car is under protection while you are away. BlackVue automatically switches to Parking Mode to monitor you parked vehicle, but only writes to the memory card when something happens (motion or impact detected). Thanks to the video buffer, the few seconds leading to the triggering event are also recorded.
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.
Scheduled Reboot: Schedule a daily automatic reboot (optional—by default at night) to minimize potential errors. Reboots happen only if the dashcam is in Parking Mode and not writing data to the microSD card. This means no Normal driving, Event, or Parking Mode recording can be interrupted by a scheduled reboot.
Super stealthy: BlackVue DR900X Series allows you to 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.
