In the field of dashcams, VIOFO has always been dedicated to continuously enhancing image quality. We were the first to deploy Sony's latest STARVIS 2 technology and previously released remarkable 4K A139 Pro and 2K A119 Mini 2 dashcams that have made significant improvements in image quality and detail capture.

And now, VIOFO is once again at the forefront of the industry with the launch of the A229 Plus dashcam, the first to feature dual Sony STARVIS 2 IMX675 image sensors. A229 Plus supports up to 3 channel recordings in 2K+2K+1080P resolution. It introduces the cutting-edge Sony STARVIS 2 technology for front and rear cameras, and Sony STARVIS for interior camera, supporting HDR for all 3 channels, balancing over dark and over bright areas to help accurately restore 2K details recorded at night.

In this blog post, let’s delve into the outstanding performance and features that the all-new 2K+2K+1080P A229 Plus dashcam brings.

      

2K + 2K + 1080P Recording

The A229 Plus simultaneously records in three channels at 2K+2K+1080P, which provides all-round protection. It boasts revolutionary dual cameras deploying Sony's latest STARVIS 2 technology, offering upgraded 2K front and rear recordings. This advanced technology propels the dashcam's recording performance to a new height, delivering exceptional video quality that meticulously captures every intricate detail like license plates or road signs, during day and night recording.

      

Dual Sony STARVIS 2 IMX675 Sensors

A229 Plus is the industry's first dashcam using two Sony STARVIS 2 IMX675 image sensors, for front and rear cameras. The IMX675 sensor offers a 2.5 times wider dynamic range and higher light sensitivity than the STARVIS tech, bringing much less noise and motion blur during day & night recording.

The utilization of Sony's STARVIS 2 technology in both cameras ensures that the A229 Plus is capable of producing clear and vivid footage even in low-light conditions. This is particularly crucial for driving scenarios during early mornings or late evenings, as well as navigating dimly lit urban environments. The enhanced dynamic range of the STARVIS 2 tech translates into sharper images, allowing the dashcam to record critical moments with precision.

      

HDR Supported for All 3 Channels

A229 Plus is outstanding in a wide range of light conditions, by virtue of Sony STARVIS 2 & STARVIS technology. Every captured footage is enhanced with a higher dynamic range to reveal more details in highlights and shadows. The flagship sensors, coupled with advanced HDR technology, balance extremely bright and dark areas to accurately restore 2K details recorded at night. Even in fast moves, the A229 Plus can capture accurate license details from both front and rear recordings.

With the A229 Plus dashcam, you’ll be able to see more accurate license plates, road signs, and other crucial elements. If you’re involved in an accident, the high-quality video footage can help provide reliable evidence for insurance claims or legal proceedings, making your driving safer all the time.

      

Infrared Cabin Recording

The interior camera leverages Sony STARVIS IMX307 sensor and advanced HDR technology, clearly capturing the entire cabin scene without overexposure. With a built-in IR light sensor, the camera automatically activates its 4 infrared LED lights when it detects low light conditions in the car cabin, enabling it to record sharp black-and-white image details even in complete darkness.

It is also equipped with an IR Cut Filter. The  IR Cut Filter automatically switches filters based on light sensor signals, screening out infrared rays in ample light to restore true color and greatly reducing red or purple hue. In low light, it automatically retracts to allow the lens to utilize all available light, thus significantly improving low-light performance.

      

Smart Voice Control & Notification

A229 Plus comes with an advanced voice control feature, which allows you to start/stop recording, take photos, turn on/off WiFi, and more with simple spoken commands in multiple languages (English/Chinese/ Russian / Japanese/Vietnamese/Thai). This can be especially handy if you’re driving while you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Its voice notification supports multiple languages and clearly notifies drivers of setting changes or memory card errors, keeping drivers always fully focused on the road.

The voice control function supports up to 12 voice commands, including:

- Take Photo

- Turn On Audio

- Turn On Screen

- Turn On Wi-Fi

- Show Front Camera

- Show Rear Camera

- Show Both Cameras

- Video Start

- Turn Off Audio

- Turn Off Screen

- Turn Off Wi-Fi

- Lock The Video

      

Ultra-Precise GPS Recording & Tracking

A229 Plus features a state-of-the-art Quad-Mode GPS module. By integrating 4 global satellite positioning systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou), Quad-Mode GPS can simultaneously access signals from multiple constellations, achieving positioning faster and greatly improving positioning accuracy and stability.

Whether in urban areas between tall buildings, or mountainous areas with complex terrain, the Quad-Mode GPS takes advantage of the geometric distribution of various satellites to increase 3D positioning precision for a more accurate driving trajectory. It provides detailed location, speed, and time data of the vehicle when playing back the video on the VIOFO App or computer.

Note: Not compatible with GPS module of A229 Duo

      

Other Outstanding Features

Ultra Fast 5GHz Wi-Fi

A229 Plus supports dual-band 5GHz&2.4GHz Wi-Fi, users can select which band to use based on actual needs. The upgraded 5GHz Wi-Fi provides much faster data transfer than the conventional 2.4GHz, ensuring smooth video previewing, downloading, and sharing. With the VIOFO app, you can conveniently transfer files and preview them directly on your phone.

      

Intelligent Parking Mode

A229 Plus also comes with three parking modes (optional HK4 hardwire kit is required), auto event detection, time lapse recording, and low bitrate recording, providing 24/7 surveillance of your car while parked and giving you peace of mind. The dash cam will switch to Parking Mode automatically when the vehicle ignition is turned off, and the parking mode and recording timer can be set in the VIOFO app. The Low Voltage Cut-off function will protect the car battery from excessive discharge.

Auto Event Detection:

If the built-in G-sensor detects an impact or significant movement, it triggers the dash cam to start recording, providing evidence if your vehicle gets damaged while parked. Supported by the buffered function, the dash cam will automatically record a 45-second video for 15 seconds before and 30 seconds after the detected event, ensuring no critical moments are missed.

Time Lapse Recording:

The time-lapse mode condenses long periods into shorter video clips, recording a video at low frames at 1/2/3/5/10fps without audio recorded, which saves storage and power. This is particularly useful for capturing road trips, scenic drives, or lengthy commutes, as it presents the entire journey in a more concise and easily watchable way.

Low Bitrate Recording:

It keeps continuous recording in mini file size with audio recorded, helping save more space on the microSD card.

      

Loop Recording & Auto Emergency Lock

A229 Plus supports seamless loop recording, which allows for continuous video capture and automatically overwrites the oldest videos with the last ones, freeing drivers from the need to constantly check and clear memory cards. With the built-in G-sensor, the dashcam will automatically lock the ongoing recording file when a sudden impact or collision occurs, preventing it from being overwritten. This feature provides crucial video evidence in the event of an accident, hit-and-run, or other incidents.

      

Final Thoughts

All in all, the launch of the newly upgraded 2K+2K+1080P A229 Plus dashcam with dual Sony STARVIS 2 sensors, offers drivers an enhanced level of safety and security, helping them capture crucial moments during their journeys. Whether it’s to establish liability in accidents or to document scenic road trips, this dashcam proves itself capable of handling diverse scenarios.
