Real time data overlayed on videos

SmartyCam GP HD overlays all the data you need from different sources. From GPS: track map and vehicle position, as well as speed, lap and split times. Connected directly to your ECU, SmartyCam GP HD gathers together RPM, throttle, engaged gear, acceleration, temperatures, pressures and - in presence of additional sensors - 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 GP 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 GP HD video recorded on the same track: you will be able to compare your best lap with your friends personal best!

AiM SmartyCam GP HD Rev.2.2 Direct CAN ECU connection

Direct CAN ECU connection

The new SmartyCam GP HD has been designed integrating the direct connection to the CAN-bus line of the ECU and it will allow to use the can-bus communication protocols included in our official database, or manage the customized can-bus protocols.

This new feature has been designed particularly for those vehicle like Formula cars or race bikes, where the available space to fit things in is minimum.

Coaxial bullet cable with dedicated connection

We have introduced new solution in order to make all the connections stronger and more protected by electromagnetic noise, as a new connection cable for the bullet , now more protected, and a stronger filtering on the power connection of the SmartyCam GP HD.

Integrated AiM CAN-bus Hub

SmartyCam GP HD has now 4 connectors, one completely dedicated to the bullet cam, one for the ECU-MIC, one for the GPS08 Module connection and an extra one you can use to connect with AiM dash/loggers.

Now compatible with the GPS08 Module

Differently from the previous model which needed the specific GPS SmartyCam, the new SmartyCam GP HD has been optimized and now can only work with the generic GPS08 Module.

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.

On/off Switch

That is why SmartyCam GP HD can be switched on/off automatically by the logger it is connected to: simply decide after what period of non-activity the camera will have to 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: the camera will start recording when the speed or RPM threshold is exceeded. You simply decide how long after dropping below the selected threshold the video will automatically stop.

No "wave effect" with the CMOS sensor and improved video quality

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 GP HD has been designed for that environment and for those vibrations. "Wave effect" is just a memory.

SmartyCam GP HD The new CMOS significantly improves image quality in low-brightness conditions, reducing the 'noise' to the minimum. SmartyCam GP HD

The Global Shutter CMOS sensor

Unlike generic multipurpose cameras, SmartyCam GP 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

Generic action cameras are designed to record videos in many different situations, such as skiing or surfing, but in motorsports they tend to record misleading videos.
Those cameras straighten out the view ahead: when on track, the corners simply disappear.
So, when you wish to check your track performance, those videos are useless, because the images are distorted. Being a camera dedicated to motorsports, SmartyCam GP HD features lenses specifically designed to avoid distortion.

The camera is available in two versions: 

Proprietary lenses designed for motorsports The narrow HFOV lens (67°) 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. Proprietary lenses designed for motorsports

The wide HFOV lens (84°) 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.

The wide SmartyCam GP HD 240x320 pixel TFT color display makes installation and aiming very easy.


High-quality small-size video files

HD cameras competition is focused on the highest pixel number. The result 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 optimized 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 (not included in the box): 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 motorsports 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. That is why SmartyCam GP HD is made in machinery molded aluminum, just like many competition car parts.

With external microphone/jack

SmartyCam GP HD is very flexible:
you can add optional modules to fit it perfectly to your needs,
like the ECU Bridge to connect it directly to the Engine Control Unit, the GPS, or the external microphone/jack.

SmartyCam GP HD Compact, handy and easy to install

Compact, handy and easy to install

The small bullet size (24 diam x 48.2 mm) and light weight (just 45 g) make SmartyCam GP HD easy to install inside or outside your car/bike. To make installation even easier, a wide range of brackets is available.

PRO version

Exclusively designed for a professional usage, SmartyCam GP HD is also available in the PRO version, which features Deutsch connectors.
