The PDR100 is the core of the ChaseCam video acquisition system. This rugged, solid-state Personal Digital Recorder is used in multiple applications including Formula 1, Off-Road Trophy Trucks, Motorcycles, and countless other forms of sport and competition. It’s even been worn by soldiers in battle!
New Feature: AUTO-RECORD!
Developed for the SPEED World Challenge series, ChaseCam has incorporated Supercaps capacitors and the popular G-Force Module to automatically record an entire weekend of racing, without pushing a button! Here’s how it works:
1) The PDR100 will power on as soon as it receives power.
2) The G-Force Module will trigger the PDR100 to begin recording once it senses vehicle motion. You set the sensitivity.
3) The G-Force Module will trigger the PDR100 to stop recording after it senses no motion for a period of time (user set).
4) The Supercaps will power down the PDR100 approx 5 seconds after wired power is terminated.
Auto-Record is now standard on all PDR-100s.

ChaseCam Bullet Cameras are very small, lightweight, weatherproof, and rugged. Optimized for racing. This camera outputs standard analog video (NTSC or PAL formats available)
Because of its low weight, there’s less “mass” undergoing shock and vibration which means a more stable image, higher reliability and less chance of damage. It also opens up the use of smaller mounting methods so that you can mount the camera when there’s not much space available. For maximum reliability, the camera is a single printed circuit board with surface mount components and a board mounted CCD.
The BulletCam is weather and waterproof. You can even submerge it (up to 10 feet, with a waterproof cable).
The ChaseCam BulletCams use a wide-angle, lens which is ideal for motorsports. Many lenses are too narrow and the field of view just doesn’t capture the excitement and vividness that you get with a wide angle lens. You can also get too wide an angle which creates a “fisheye” effect. The standard lens is a 90 degree one, and cameras are available with a 120 degree lens and lenses can be swapped out.
The camera is mounted in a hard aluminum tube with standard camera mounting attachment points. The front is a replaceable acrylic protective cover. If damaged, it is easily replaced for $2.00.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is NOT a cheap webcam or security cam.
You need a recording device…
The ChaseCam camera simply provides a standard analog video output. If you want to record the video, you’ll need an external recording device such as our Personal Digital Recorder to plug into.
Again, this is an analog (NTSC or PAL) video head that connects to an external recording device, i.e., this is NOT a digital camera.
