Camera firm Visiontrack has expanded its range with the new VT1000 HD model.
The model includes super-wide 170 pillar-to-pillar angle lens, records high-quality footage in 1080p and has a built-in GPS receiver to ensure vehicle location and speed accuracy.
It also benefits from a security-led design, whereby a key is needed to access the memory card and the recording angle is locked in place, negating any concerns around footage being compromised.
Simon Marsh, VisionTrack managing director, said: “It is important that every fleet has the opportunity to utilise vehicle cameras that provide irrefutable evidence in the event of an incident, especially where fault is being disputed by a third party.
"The VT1000 is a device that requires minimal investment, opening up this technology to fleets of any size. As well as suiting businesses looking for a camera-only fleet solution, it is perfect for organisations keen to trial this type of equipment to gain initial insight into how it can be of benefit before investing further in higher specification 3G telematics cameras.”
Marsh added: “Many vehicle cameras used by fleets were originally made for individual car users and, as fleet adoption of these devices has boomed, some camera companies have added locking cases as a security afterthought. These cases do not always provide adequate protection against users accessing the format button and deleting footage that a fleet operator may need to see. This is where the VT1000 differs, being developed with integrated locking case and lockable recording angle so managers can have peace of mind. Plus, it also comes with alarm outputs so it can be integrated into third party telematics and is made for fleet use.”
VisionTrack’s VT1000 is the second product from Visiontrack to be launched this year, with its flagship VT2000 3G telematics camera released in January. Offering advanced functionalities, the VT2000 allows a ten-second video clip to be transmitted to a fleet manager or insurance company within seconds using only 350kB of data.
“Within our cutting edge range of products we have solutions to cater for all fleets, whether they are looking for a standalone camera or a complete 3G telematics camera,” added Simon. “Having had first-hand fleet experience, we have been able to design our cameras around fleet needs. We believe our equipment and big data platform to be among the most high-tech and scalable on the market.”
