DVR: an alternative to a webcam

Video recorders are used in cars to record traffic incidents. However, a lot of motorist s are now working remotely. So that the DVR is not left idle in the car, why not use this at home as a webcam.

During the quarantine period, many people have switched to working remotely, meaning the DVRs are left idle in cars. These devices are a perfect replacement for a webcam. How about putting them to good use and improving the quality of video communications.

Any video recorder can be used as a webcam which can be used both at home and on the road. The RoadRunner 415GPS and 425 records FullHD video at 30 frames per second, which is much more than the standard 0.3 MP of most laptops. The RoadRunner 605GPS model records 4K video creating the best picture possible even better than some high specification laptops. A large matrix and well-arranged large aperture lens provide clear recording and detailed videos to provide high-quality video communication.

Among the wide range of DVRs, you can choose different models, some which cost the same as a webcam. The Roadrunner 155 has the benefit of a 2 in 1 device as it combines both a DVR and a webcam.

When developing the optical systems for our DVRs, we pay special attention to viewing angles - we make them as wide as possible so that all lanes are displayed on the video. When using the recorder as a webcam, more objects from a smaller distance still fit into the frame.

Buying a DVR is beneficial as it is multifunctional. Webcams appear to be old technology, they are just left to gather dust in a cupboard, while motorists use DVRs almost every day. When you want to use these devices at home to make a video call, it is possible as any Prestigio dashcam, whether it is the RoadRunner 155, 415GPS, 425 or 605GPS, can be easily removed from the car and installed at home. You just need to connect a microphone.

When you buy a webcam, you have to install drivers, which is time-consuming. With Prestigio dashcams, you do not have to install any additional software - just connect it and start chatting using Viber, Telegram, WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom, Teams or any other video chat applications.

The video recorder is a portable webcam which allows high quality recording. It is not part of the computer, so it can be moved into different spaces and angles. You can choose the most convenient recording angle, while maintaining a comfortable position for working at the computer. The device has a stylish classic design and fits into the interior of any apartment.
