SmartyCam GP HD Has Been Designed for Motorsports With a Single Purpose: providing great videos that include all the technical information that will help you improve your performance. SmartyCam GP HD is a quite versatile system, easy to install on cars, bikes, karts: robust and reliable, it has been engineered to withstand the extreme working conditions typical of motorsports.

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.

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 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.

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.

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: 60 Degree & 120 Degree

Real time data overlayed on videos 

SmartyCam GP HD automatically overlays on videos all the data you need: speed, RPM, lap number, gear shifts and much more.

Simply choose the data and the graphic layout you prefer in the huge selection of overlays available.

What Kind of Data?

SmartyCam GP HD overlays data from different sources on the videos themselves.

From GPS: track map and vehicle position, as well as speed, lap and split times.

From Aim logger connected to your ECU: RPM, throttle, engaged gear, acceleration, temperatures, pressures and in  the presence of additional sensors, also their values.
All these info will be overlayed on videos in each single point of the track.

Smarty Manager 2 Software

With SmartyManager 2, SmartyCam GP HD’s dedicated sofware, you can add your logo and the track map on videos. The wide choice of graphic objects you can select allows you to choose from a list of pre-determined sets with same layout or to choose single objects from different sets.  Now, your videos will be truly “yours” in all details, from data to their graphic layouts.

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.
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 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
Global Shutter 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 GP HD has been designed for that environment and for those vibrations. “Wave effect” is just a memory.

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”.

Lenses designed to reduce distortion

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:

Aim SmartyCam HD Rev2 The Wide HFOV lens

The wide 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.

Wide color TFT display

The wide SmartyCam GP HD 240×320 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 HD Rev2 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). The 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 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 moulded aluminium, just like many competition car parts.


Now 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.

The small bullet size (24 diam x 73.5 mm) and light weight (just 55 g) make SmartyCam GP HD easy to install inside or outside your car/bike. To make installation even easier, a wide range of brackets are available
