Transcend’s DrivePro 50 Car Video Recorder Wins Good Design Award in Japan

The Good Design Awards is one of the most prestigious design awards in the world with over 4,085 entries submitted just this year. Founded in 1957, the Good Design Awards recognizes products that feature top-of-the-line design quality as well as those with groundbreaking design. And this year, Transcend’s DrivePro 50 Car Video Recorder has been granted one of these prestigious awards for its unique design and features.

On the design and features of the DrivePro 50, the jury for the Good Design Award commented, “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-degree wide angle, high image resolution and wirelessly access from mobile devices may be a mainstream in the future.”

The DrivePro 50 features an incredibly compact design which fits almost perfectly behind any car’s rearview mirror, keeping itself out of sight and doesn’t impair on the driver’s vision. It features a large f/1.8 aperture lens, a wide viewing angle of 130-degrees, a full HD 1080p imaging sensor, and a built-in G-Sensor to detect sudden impacts to instantly trigger emergency recording mode. It also comes with built-in Wi-Fi allowing it to pair with smartphones with the company’s new DirvePro app to allow users to stream, download, or share the videos the DrivePro 50 is able to take.
