The Aim Smartycam HD Dual Racing Camera System 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. All this in the most robust and reliable system ever.
The Solo 2 DL is the data logging version of the Solo which means it can connect to your engine ECU using either CAN or OBDII (both are included in the kit) giving you all the performance data from your engine along with stunning video footage that you can revue using Race Studio free software. The Solo 2 DL offers highly accurate GPS and GLONASS technology providing the driver with key information such as lap times, lap count, and even predictive lap times.
Remembering all of the important moments from your session can be very difficult. With the SmartyCam HD you can record your entire session in high definition. A high quality CMOS sensor also provides outstanding video quality and stability for later review. Setting up is easy using the LCD screen on the front of the unit to ensure the best possible angle.
The System offers a compact, easy to install solution and includes windscreen and roll cage mounts to hold both the Solo 2 and SmartyCam HD on either windscreen or dashboard, or by fixing to a roll bar. This also allows for easy transfer from vehicle to vehicle. Both the data recorded from the Solo 2 and the video from the SmartyCam HD can also be combined in the Aim Race Studio 3 software, allowing you to review your driving and compare it with data such as speed, G-forces, throttle position and more. This acts as a performance tool to assist you in improving your driving skills by providing a visual reference for driving lines and technique.
SmartyCam HD Rev. 2.1 Competitive Advantages
Real Time Data Overlayed on Videos
SmartyCam HD overlays all the data you need from different sources. From GPS i.e. track map and vehicle position, as well as speed, lap and split times. From Aim loggers connected to your ECU i.e. RPM, throttle, engaged gear, acceleration, temperatures, pressures and – in presence of additional sensors – also their values. All this info will be overlaid 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.
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.
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!
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 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
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
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 metres distance look very far away, 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.
Front Mount Color TFT Display For In-Car Installation
On-board cameras are to be installed inside the car. Where should the display be placed to check the correct position of the camera? The SmartyCam HD 128x128 pixel TFT colour display is on the front, not on rear – where general cameras place the viewfinder
High Motorsport Quality – Small Size Video Files
Most other HD cameras are focused on the highest pixel number. The result is that their video files are far too large, taking too much memory. SmartyCam 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: 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 HD Rev2 is made in machinery moulded aluminium used in many competition car parts. The SmartyCam HD Rev2 is the most robust and reliable system ever.
Compact, handy and easy to Install
Its small size (87x63x49mm) and light weight (just 280g) make SmartyCam HD easy to install inside your car or on your bike.
