Prestigio RoadRunner HD1 car video recorder debuts

Prestigio, a dynamic international vendor of state-of-the-art IT and CE products for style-conscious consumers, is proud to announce the launch of the Car Digital Video Recorder, RoadRunner HD1.

“Prestigio RoadRunner HD1 is a mobile, highly capable digital video recorder, which is your reliable eyewitness to any traffic incident or accident”, says Mark Forbes, product marketing manager at ASBIS Africa.

The RoadRunner HD1 has a powerful processor allowing HD 720P recording with high resolution of 1280 x 720 @ 30 fps, which records every detail with high clarity.  It supports recording onto an SD card of up to 32GB, being able to hold up to six hours of data, and supports real time playback and real time date and time display. The device also has an automatic light sensitivity adjustment and delivers great performance with sharper images in low light conditions.

“Another important characteristic is the viewing angle. The RoadRunner HD1 boasts a 120 degree wide viewing angle lens, which enables it to capture more of the scene. It also has motion detection recording capabilities, which allows identifying potentially important footage without having to trawl through hours of recordings,” adds Forbes.

The device has a wide temperature range, -35˚C to +70˚C, which helps to keep the camera operating in extreme hot or cold environments.

“We saw the need for a product that will assist in avoiding problems on the road, such as: the insurance bill for the accidents that was not their fault, or to prove the speed they were travelling at, or to simply record what happens outside and inside the car. That’s why we decided to launch our version of a Car Video Recorder, the RoadRunner HD1,” COO Prestigio Yuri Antoshkin explained. “Always providing one of the best high-technology products, we are very confident that this new product will live up to the expectations of our target group and future customers,” he adds.

The recorder operates on a built-in Li-On rechargeable battery or DV 5V output Car Charger, so no matter how far you drive, the RoadRunner is always on your guard.

The device comes with DC 5V Car Charger, User Manual, Suction Mount, USB Cable, AV Cable, Warranty card. No SD card provided. “We recommend using a class 10 SDHC card, which is also available through ASBIS Africa,” Forbes concluded.

The RoadRunner HD1 is available from ASBIS Africa, at a recommended retail price from R999 including VAT.
