Transcend’s DrivePro 50 Car Video Recorder wins Japan’s “Good Design Award 2016” for top quality and outstanding design.

DrivePro 50 Car Video Recorder

The DrivePro 50 Car Video Recorder is a compact dash cam designed to be mounted at the back of rearview mirrors. Powered by a full HD sensor, the dash cam is equipped with a large f/1.8 aperture lens and a wide 130-degree viewing angle allowing for more detailed captures no matter the time of day.

“Car video recorders can be a good solution to prevent the drivers from a car accident dispute. Although there are many kinds of car video recorders sold in the market, DP50 is unique with its compact and screen-free design. Also, the features of ƒ/1.8 aperture, 130° wide angle, high image resolution and wirelessly access from mobile devices may be a mainstream in the future,” comments a jury from the Good Design Award 

One of the more interesting features of the DrivePro 50 is the built-in G-Sensor. The sensor detects impact that instantly triggers an emergency recording mode. This prevents overwriting of the recording made of the critical moments leading up to an accident.

Lastly, the DrivePro 50 comes with built-in Wi-Fi and the free DrivePro New App. The app allows users to stream, download and share videos on smartphones and tablets.

The Good Design Award is one of the world’s most prestigious design awards, with over 4,085 entries submitted from all over the world this year. The Good Design Selection System (or G Mark System) was founded in 1957 by the current Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Japan. Submissions come from a wide range of fields, and roughly 1,200 designs are recognized every year. Over 59 years, around 43,000 designs have been recognized by the awards. Recipients of a Good Design Award are granted use of the G Mark symbol, which has been an emblem of good design for over half a century.
