CES 2020: KENWOOD Debuts a Compact, Screenless HD Dual Dash Cam System 

Making its debut at CES, KENWOOD USA is introducing a 4th new product in their series of next-generation dash cams.  With an MSRP of $269.95 the DRV-A700WDP is a GPS integrated compact dual dash cam system that features screenless designed front and rear recording cameras, which are less obtrusive than typical dash cams with a screen.  This Wide Quad HD (2560 x 1440) front dash cam and Full HD (1920 x 1080) rear dash cam system provides superior picture quality, wireless link smartphone app compatibility, and a new quick release magnetic mount. 

The DRV-A700WDP, which is scheduled to begin shipping later this month, creates an opportunity for KENWOOD dealers that has never existed before.  Now, dealers can offer users a maintenance free system that stays out of sight and out of mind, but with the convenience of easy access whenever they choose via their smartphone, which connects wirelessly to the system.  Once connected, users can play back and edit videos, download videos to their smartphone, upload videos directly to social media, access GPS information while viewing on Google maps, and control all the settings of the system. 

Its picture recording quality is impressive, with the front camera capable of recording in Wide Quad HD, which covers 3.7 million pixels, as well as High Dynamic Range (HDR), which allows it to easily record clear images in dark or well-lit environments without underexposing or overexposing the image.  The front camera has a lens rotation of -90° to 40° and includes a high-quality 3M tape style mounting system with spare 3M pads.  The rear camera, which includes a 26’ cable to connect to the front camera, records in Full HD of 2 million pixels, and is also the recording resolution when both cameras are recording simultaneously.  Both cameras record at 30 frames per second and include a 1/2.8 CMOS sensor.

To further enhance the system’s sleek design, it includes KENWOOD’s CA-DR1030 hardwire power connection kit.  By including this, whenever the vehicle is powered off, users gain “parking mode”, which enables the camera to power on and automatically record 30 seconds of video if the vehicle is subject to a collision or other physical impact.   

The front camera has a sleek stature of 3-9/16” wide, 2-7/16” high, and 1-9/16” deep.  The rear camera comes in with dimensions of 2-1/2” wide, 2-5/8” high, and 1-7/16” deep.  For detailed information on specific features, please view their respective product pages that will be available soon at www.kenwood.com/usa/car.
