vicovation opia2 premiuma

   About two months ago while i was driving with my car to the movies i witnessed a hit and run involving a sport bike motorcycle and a full-size luxury crossover SUV. It only took but a couple of seconds for the entire accident to happen and i have to admit that i wasn't really paying much attention since both vehicles were on the second lane from the far right while i was on the far left (4 lane freeway) and moving quite fast. Luckily thanks to the dash camera i always have installed in my car i was able to give the license plate of that SUV to the authorities that rushed to the scene and although where i live such "evidence" is still not considered valid in a court of law this was an entirely different situation so i sincerely hope it helped. In many countries all over the world however footage obtained by dash cameras is valid evidence and there are also many insurance agencies that offer discounts if you happen to have one installed in your car so i highly recommend doing so. VicoVation is one of the leading dash camera manufacturers and after testing their very good Vico-MF3 model we decided to take the Vico-Opia 2 Premium Pack for a spin.


   VicoVation is the combination of Vico (Vision, Integration, Creativity, Observation) and Innovation. VicoVation was founded in 2010 by a group of CCTV surveillance system professionals who values the most on recording quality and the product quality. VicoVation’s team is dedicated to image and function adjustments so they can bring the best Dashcam products to the customers. The newly launched models come with the latest technology including Ultra High Dynamic Range (U-HDR), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS), Current Speed & GPS Location Overlay, GPS Tracking, and many other more advanced driving safety assistance functions.


   Just like with the Vico-MF3 Extreme Cam Recorder the Vico-Opia 2 is also based on the latest A12A SoC by Ambarella which VicoVation has paired with a 4MP CMOS image sensor (along with 6G / F2.0 aperture glass lens for superior clarity) a combination which enables single-channel recording of Quad-HD (4MP, 2560x1440p) resolution at 30fps and Full HD (1920x1080p) resolution at up to 60 fps (with HDR off) and a diagonal viewing angle of 160 degrees (the MF3 offers a diagonal angle of 150 degrees). Thanks to a combination of advanced image processing, High Dynamic Range (HDR), 3D noise filtering, smart auto-exposure and full-resolution oversampling the Ambarella A12 SoC can produce superior image quality compared to similar products. Also thanks to a high-speed 792-MHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU with Neon DSP extensions the A12A offers advanced analytics algorithms including lane departure, low light warning, forward car movement detection and forward collision warning systems. The VicoVation Opia 2 also features a 3 inch TFT LCD screen at the rear, built-in G-sensor (3-axis sensor), voice reminders, smart time-lapse video recording and is compatible with Class 10 micro SD cards (up to 128GB in capacity - allows you to store up to 837 minutes at 1440p and 983 minutes at 1296p/1080p).
