Transcend, the company widely known for its storage related products, has released the DrivePro Body 10B camera.
Body Cam With A Sony Sensor
The DrivePro Body 10B happens to be a second generation body cam and is built for low-light conditions. Within it is a Sony sensor, though the specific model wasn’t specified by Transcend. This allows the bodycam to record in 1080p at 30 frames per second, which is a resolution of Full HD. The Sony sensor comes with an aperture of f/2.8, coupled with a viewing angle of 130°. Also, to improve its performance under low-light, infrared LEDs have been included to capture images with clear resolution. The included infrared LEDs will activate automatically under low-light, resulting in grey-scale footage.
A snapshot button is also included, allowing the wearer to capture images during video recordings. Keeping the camera going is a rather large 1,530mAh Li-Polymer battery which Transcends states will last for up to five hours of recording. This battery can be charged up via a micro USB cable. As this bodycam is meant for individuals in law enforcement, durability is a key aspect of the Drive Body 10B. With that being said, water and shock resistance is included. With an IPX4 rating, the device will be able to withstand splashes of water, a MIL-STD-810G rating means it should handle drops quite well.
If you purchase a Drive Body 10B, you can expect to have a number of accessories to be included in the packaging. This includes a 360° rotating clip and a velcro holder for users to attach and secure the DrivePro Body 10B on their uniforms or gear. Also, a 32GB microSDHC card is included, and each camera comes with a two-year warranty. When it comes to availability and pricing, Transcend has made no mention of either at launch time.
