New 2ch WINYCAM X200FHD dashcamera system from well known to this forum company ( Livue ).

Unfortunately it's not yet found on Winycam English website:

http://www.winycam-eng.com/
http://livue.co.kr/eng/product.html

Also no info on it's official re-seller ipixi.com

The only banner is on winycan.com, but thats it, nothing more.

It's also not yet announced on navinside, which is usually the first to present new Korean high-end dash cameras.

The only place I found it is on so-called Korean "eBay"-type website auction.co.kr






----------------

Specifications and design looks quite interesting and more targeted "western" customer needs.

Main dashcamera body can be mounted quite descretely where only little area of whole dash cam is exposed to outside.
Lens casing has interesting design feature which allow to adjust lens angle not only up and down but to the left and right as well.
Also it has most "naked" dashcamera casing design I ever seen before, with huge vent holes for heat dissipation to prevent dashcam overheating.

The most interesting component on this dashcamera to me is front camera Pananasonic CMOS sensor, which is considered to be more advanced than Sony Exmor, but it's not yet know which exact Panasonic CMOS they are using. However knowing Winycam ( Livue ) past products quality and reliability, I can assume they will not go for something cheap, so I would expect some serious Panasonic CMOS sensor.

- CPU: Nextchip NVS331 / Coretex A5 series
- CMOS
front cam: Panasonic 2.2Mpix 1/3" CMOS
rear cam: 2Mpix 1/3.2"CMOS ( unknown brand )
- Low battery power cut built in
- Capacitor ( SuperCap ) based.
- G-sensor
- GPS
- 12-24 Volt
- Records AVi, H.264
- Main unit size: 104 x 36 x 71, weight 138gr
- operating temperature: -20 + 60 C.
- battery discharge prevention: 11.8v, 11.9v, 12.0v, 12.1v, 12.2v

The only thing I don't understand: if they put so much effort into it's quite good design solution ( in my opinion ) and using expensive Panasonic CMOS ... why this:

1ch rec: 1080p / 30fps = OK
2ch rec: front camera 1080p / 25fps, rear camera 720p / 15fps. ( Not OK for 2014 )

WHY "Winy", WHY !!! ??? :) It's a 2014, not 2012-2013 !!!
... or maybe it's just me being too fussy and too demanding ? ... What others think ?

It's all started so well with specs, but after I discovered that by using 2ch, the FPS is dropped.... ehhhh.
The reason I think is that CPU they are using is not capable of operating on higher FPS for 2ch mode.

This is dissapointing and not acceptable for 2014 if company want to succeed on global market competing with some other well known manufacturers.

Price in Korea is about 340 usd, not cheap for those specs

Not sure how long that listing there will stay in that link, so I have saved all photos and publish them below just for future records.
