Feb 27, 2011 ChaseCam announces the release of the DIVA HD and DIVA HD R

ChaseCam again sets the standards. The industry first fully synced HD video and data recording solution! The DIVA HD builds on our DIVA product line with a full 16:9 720p 60fps. Note, frames per second is the important component of quality video, not just resolution. In motorsports use, 720p 60fps will be superior to 1080p 30fps. The other component is a technical term called shutter speed and we at ChaseCam are proud of our new HD camera. Rock solid video in the industries smallest and lightest camera you can use.

The R version adds locking circular military connectors in a waterproof machined aluminum case. Contact the factory for availability. Our first batch of HD R units are going to the space agency NASA.

Sept 10, 2008 ChaseCam and Leno’s Big Dog Garage

When Jay Leno’s race team wanted to capture on-car footage of the 2008 Monterey Historic Automobile Races, they turned to ChaseCam. Utilizing our new AUTO-RECORD feature, we outfitted their 1955 Hagemann Jaguar Special with no less than five ChaseCam recorders and cameras all around the car. Each ChaseCam recorder and camera turned on, recorded, stopped recording, and turned off automatically, all weekend long.

The versatility of the ChaseCam system allowed the team to capture footage other systems, and even their professional film crew, simply couldn’t get. Inches above ground off the front and rear of the car, on the driver’s helmet, looking over his shoulder, and even hidden in the hood scoop! The on-car footage captured by ChaseCam will be used in an upcoming documentary that will be published on Jay Leno’s website: jaylenosgarage.com.

May 5, 2008- ChaseCam introduces an industry first, total hands free operation!

ChaseCam recently developed a new and exciting AUTO-RECORD feature. The ChaseCam recorder can now be set to automatically boot up when the car is turned on (using the car’s 12V power) and then to record when the car moves. The user can set how much movement is required to trigger recording, from 0.13G to over 1G. You can easily set the recorder to not record when the car is moving about the grid, but as soon as you launch, the recording starts instantly! The user can also set how long the unit continues to record after coming to a stop.

This auto-record feature is available on ALL ChaseCam recorders with the GForce module (and we can upgrade existing systems to add the GForce module). The software update is free. The auto-boot feature is available on all newer PDRs and when combined with our new Supercap power supply, can be a total hands free experience! No more thinking about the video, you can just drive.

“The Chasecam auto-record worked awesome! Auto-powers on with the ignition switch and auto-starts with programmable g-force level. I never touched it except to pull out the flash card and it had all of our runs perfectly done.” -Fred Z

We are using this feature on all the SCCA SPEED World Challenge cars, so that the racing organizers don’t have to worry about making sure the video is recording. Now it works, every time. Simple.
