The Raven Dashcam is an event data recorder that has all the bells and whistles of a sophisticated camera system for the modern vehicle. It features high definition cameras, high fidelity audio, and automotive data management technology. Other systems can only dream of having these innovations in their dashcams.
What makes the Raven a clear winner is its connectivity with a modern car’s OBD-II system. Most dash cams draw their power from the car’s 12-volt battery output. The Raven uses the car’s OBD-II system for both power and data management. It can display on its high-resolution screen important engine parameters. This provides you with more valuable information than a simple blinking Check Engine light.
Recording events on the Raven is as easy as waving your hand in front of the device. There are no screens to touch, switches to flip, or buttons to press. It can also record event-triggered videos so you will never miss any important action during the drive.
There are two cameras on the Raven. One is facing the road and comes with the Sony STARVIS sensor. This gives you a field of view of about 140 degrees. The other camera faces the cabin and features the OmniVISION CMOS sensor with 130 degrees field of view. It can record videos in amazing 1080p HD quality. However, when set to live streaming mode, the Raven whittles down the video quality to 720p. It’s still a respectable resolution, though. Both cameras also feature night vision capabilities.
The system draws its computing power from 6 cores of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 650 64-bit processors. It comes with different sensors like GPS, accelerometer, proximity, magnetometer, temperature, air pressure, and gyroscope.
It is obvious that the Raven Dashcam is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill event data recorder. It’s a live streaming platform that doubles as an engine performance monitor.
