Automotive Camera System: The Waylens Horizon HD automotive
camera system enables drivers to easily capture, edit, and share interesting
moments and automotive performance data from their vehicle and the road in
real-time. The Waylens Horizon consists of a high performance camera with
integrated OLED screen, windshield-mount with built-in GPS module, pre-paired
OBD-II connector, steering wheel remote control, and 12V adapter. The Waylens
Horizon Mobile App for Android and Apple iOS is also required.
High Performance Camera: The Waylens Horizon is comprised of high
performance components seamlessly integrated to create an outstanding automotive
- 1/1.8" Lens: The Horizon has a large 1/1.8" lens, allowing more
light to reach the sensor, producing clearer images with less motion blur at
high speeds. This is made possible by our custom lens, designed specifically
for the automotive environment. The lens is made from 7 high quality glass
elements and wrapped within a full metal lens barrel so images produced are
always ultra sharp and vibrant, across a wider range of temperatures.
- CMOS Image Sensor: The state-of-the-art CMOS image sensor inside
the Horizon is 90% larger than traditional 1/3" sensors used by other
manufacturers. For each photoreceptor on the sensor, up to 4x more light vs.
the iPhone 6s can be digitized into an image, resulting in less motion blur
at high speeds. The sensor itself has a back illuminated structure, meaning
it is extremely sensitive, so that even if only a little bit of light can be
detected, a great image can still be produced. The result is sharper,
brighter, more effective video anytime of day or night.
- Fast Video Processor: The Horizon has an incredibly fast video
processor with 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 CPU, capable of processing the full 318
mega pixels coming from the image sensor every second. You'll be able to
capture high-quality and high-speed video at 1080p/60fps with ease.
Note: Part of camera surface may become hot due to internal heat
dissipation or exposure to direct sunlight. The camera is designed to operate
at high temperatures.
Video & Audio Recording: The Waylens Horizon automotive camera system
can record video in 1080p and 720p. You can select from the following video
quality settings - 1080p/60Hz (28 or 38Mb/s), 1080p/30Hz (18 or 22Mb/s),
720p/120Hz (28 or 38Mb/s), 720p/60Hz (18 or 22Mb/s), and 720p/30Hz (12 or
14Mb/s). Built-in microphones record stereo audio inside the vehicle.
- Auto Start & Stop Recording: In this mode, the camera begins recording
automatically when your vehicle's engine is turned on and stops recording when
the engine is turned off.
- Continuous Recording: In this mode, once the camera is turned on
it will continuously record video until you turn the camera off.
- Slow-Motion: In this mode you can record video in slow-motion
(720p @ 120fps).
- Time-Lapse Video: In this mode you can record a time-lapse video.
microSD Card Slot: Video (H.264) and audio (MP3) are recorded
format onto a microSD/SDHC
memory card (sold separately). A 32 to 128GB Class 10 microSD card is
Built-In OLED Screen & Speakers: The Horizon camera system features an
integrated, circular OLED screen. The 286 pixels per inch display and its 178°
viewing angle never leaves the driver guessing what he or she is looking at. Its
high contrast ratio of 10,000:1 is one of the inherent benefits of using OLED
technology. Additionally, when an OLED pixel is black, its completely off,
resulting in no backlight leakage, preserving night vision during those long
night drive. In addition to your video footage, you can choose which data points
to show - from speed and RPMs to G forces, ambient condition, GPS location, and
much more. You can also flip through different gauges on the OLED display while
you're driving to get real-time feedback. A built-in speaker also provides audio playback.
Data Overlay: While driving, the Horizon system takes great care to
capture everything it can about your vehicle including its location, absolute
orientation in space, and atmospheric pressure. All of these data points allow
you to tell a more complete story of your ride. The included 10Hz GPS module
allows the Horizon system to capture your position more accurately as you fly
around tight corners. The 9-axis inertial motion unit includes a 3-axis gyro, a
3-axis accelerometer, and a 3-axis magnetometer so your drive will always be
oriented correctly on-screen.
- The camera itself contains multiple sensors that will provide data
for the video overlay such as MPH, GPS, G-Force, Pitch & Roll, Time/Date, and
- The included OBD-II transmitter will provide data
for the video overlay such RPM, MAF, MPH, and Engine Temperature, as well as
Boost (when applicable).
- The included 10Hz GPS module captures your position and location.
OBD-II Transmitter: The Horizon camera system comes with a OBD-II
Transmitter which plugs into your vehicle's OBD port and wirelessly transmits
vehicle data via Bluetooth to the Horizon automotive camera system for real-time
data overlay on the integrated OLED screen. The OBD-II Transmitter captures,
RPM, MAF, MPH, and Engine Temperature, as well as Boost (when applicable). The
OBD-II transmitter is pre-paired from the factory with the Horizon camera.
Note: The included OBD-II transmitter is compatible with 1996 and
newer model year vehicles. The OBD-II transmitter does not support other
diagnostic tools from other manufacturers.
Steering Wheel Remote Control: The included remote control allows you
to highlight videos without having your hands move away from the steering wheel.
Simply fasten the strap to secure the remote on your vehicle's steering wheel.
The remote can be removed from strap without having to remove the mounting strap
from your steering wheel. The steering wheel remote control is powered by a
user-replaceable CR2032 3V battery.
