ASUS is popular for its Zenfones, laptops, motherboards and graphics cards, but is venturing out now into a new device, the Asus Reco Classic Car Cam.
In a press release statement, ASUS announced the availability of the ASUS RECO Classic Car Cam, it is a clip-on in-car digital video recorder with HDR technology for detailed images in limited visibility or high-contrast environments.
Special Safety and Emergency Features:
The RECO Classic is powered by an Ambarella chipset with an Omnivision CMOS sensor and supports up to Full HD 1080p recording at 30 frames per second (FPS). It has an f/2.0 aperture, 140-degree wide-angle lens to capture views of the sides of the vehicle and the road ahead.
The device records over the earliest existing files should the SD card run out of space. In the event of a collision, the built-in three-axis G-sensor triggers the emergency record function, saving a minute-long video (30 seconds prior/after impact) and locking it down in a separate file. There is also a manual emergency record button, allowing the driver to save videos if he or she witnesses an accident. Users can save up to 10 emergency record clips without having to worry about recording over them.
At speeds above 60km/h, ASUS RECO Classic Car Cam has a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) that displays onscreen warnings and audio alerts if the vehicle veers outside road lane markings; while the Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) notifies a driver if he is following another car at distances less than 5 to 7m.
Availability and Pricing
ASUS RECO Classic Car Cam is now available in the Philippines for SRP Php6,990.00 with Dynaquest, PC Worx, and TCA branches as its initial resellers.
