Torrance, Calif.– August 16, 2019 – Razo / Car Mate USA the number one distributor of aftermarket vehicle accessories in Japan, has announced the release of the all new dual lens d’Action 360 degree dash camera (DC5000A) for the North American market. The DC5000A connect seamlessly to a driver’s smartphone for quick camera set-up and video content review.
The DC5000A camera has built-in front and rear facing camera lenses that are capable of recording everything in approximately 4.1 megapixels or 7.3 megapixels. Its recording range is 360 x 360, with viewing angles of 360 degrees horizontally and 360 degrees vertically. d’Action’s unique “Dual-recording” technology automatically crops the front facing footage to record it separately in higher definition (approximately 2.0 megapixels) versus the “360 x 360” view. The small and compact unit is feature packed. It has built-in wireless LAN which allows the camera to quickly connect to a smartphone, and the Sony image sensor helps capture low light situations. The DC5000A also comes equipped with GPS and a 3 Axis G sensor that when triggered, will create a dedicated “Event” recording file on the memory card.
Drivers can review video footage using the d’Action 360 S smartphone app for iPhones and Androids or download to their PC for easy edit and sharing. The smartphone and PC app have features such as different video viewing angles, vehicle speed, location tracking, and video brightness adjustment.
When paired with the DC201A Parking Option (sold separately), the camera will operate in Parking Mode even when the engine is turned off. After turning off the engine, the camera will keep recording continuously up to 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the camera will automatically switch over to surveillance mode and can operate up to two weeks. The Parking Option allows the camera to capture any possible door dings, scrapes or hit-and-run incidents.
