Real time data overlayed on videos

SmartyCam GP HD overlays all the data you need from different sources.
From GPS showing track map and vehicle position, as well as speed, lap and split times.
From Aim loggers connected to your ECU showing 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. Here is just an example among the many available:

Race Studio 3
Your Software for Video Configuration and Analysis

SmartyCam HD uses 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.

Configuration

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.

Video Analysis

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!

Video Analysis

Automatic Start & Stop

You are on the starting grid, ready to sprint, your adrenaline reaching the climax: the last thing you can worry about is… switching on the camera. You have other things to worry about. SmartyCam HD Rev2 is aware of that, that is why it switches on/off automatically and starts/stops recording the same way.

Automatic On/Off Switch

SmartyCam HD can be switched on by the logger it is connected to. Switch-off is automatic, too: simply decide after what period of non-activity the camera will switch-off. Both operations can also be carried out using the keyboard, if you prefer.

Recording

Recording can also be started/stopped automatically or via keyboard. With automatic switch-on, the camera will start recording when the speed or RPM threshold is exceeded. In this case, you simply decide how long after dropping below the selected threshold the video will automatically stop.

No “wave effect” and Improved Quality with The New CMOS Sensor

Engine rumble causes vibrations, which are not a good thing for video recording. Never again will you experience that seasick “wave effect” you get when watching videos recorded by a generic camera, when the car rolls at 7000 RPM. SmartyCam HD has been designed for that environment and for those vibrations. “Wave effect” is just a memory.

The Global Shutter CMOS Sensor

 

The Global Shutter CMOS Sensor

Unlike generic multipurpose cameras, SmartyCam HD has been designed to avoid the problem of image distortion, thanks to the innovative Global Shutter CMOS sensor. The camera shutter captures the entire image at the same time, not “pixel by pixel” like traditional sensors. The result is that images are captured at once and are not affected by the vibrations that happen on a racing vehicle, which create the so-called “wave effect”.

Proprietary lenses designed for motorsports

Proprietary Lenses Designed for Motorsports

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 Motorsport 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.

Which Lense?

The narrow 67° HFOV lens is preferred for closed-roof cars, as it “sees” the track just within the wind-screen pillars, reducing that unpleasant black frame around typical of generic camera on-board videos.

The wide 84° HFOV lens is specific for open-roof, formula car and kart use, where it is possible to have a more ample view of the track and there is no risk of black frames.

High-quality small-size video file

Other HD cameras are focused on the highest pixel number. The rproblem with this, is that their video files are far too large, taking too much memory. SmartyCam GP HD videos have the same quality as other HD cameras but their files are smaller because the H264 compression system parameters have been optimised to a perfect balance between video quality and file size.

You can choose among three video file quality levels: one-hour recording takes 4GB (high quality), 2GB (normal) or 1,5GB (low). Files are stored on SD cards: with current SD cards reaching 128GB capacity, you can record more than 30 hours of high-quality videos without changing the card.

Designed to withstand extreme on-track working conditions

Frail things have a bad time on track. An on-board camera designed for motorsport, must guarantee great resistance against the extreme working conditions typical of track racing and against the most adverse weather, such as: strong and prolonged vibrations, storms, continuous rain, and extreme high and low temperatures.
