Camera Telematics has introduced its latest Street Angel on-board video evidence data recorder, which gains a number of updates to help ensure safer driving and protect against fraudulent insurance claims.
Available globally, Street Angel first debuted in Ireland in 2016 and the UK in 2019, and has been developed to provide driver behaviour scorecards along with robust first notification of loss (FNOL) data in the event of an accident or incident on the road; research by FMG suggests that failing to capture third-party information can inflate overall incident costs by 965%.
The latest updates introduce the new Street Angel hub (named HBX4), whereby customers have access to a five-channel system, an increase of two channels compared to the three used on the previous system. Customers can now also benefit from a full 360-degrees system, ensuring maximum flexibility to monitor cargo, vehicle side, reversing and driver angles, in addition to forward-facing. In addition, the new hub can manage up to a 2TB HHD, delivering up to two hundred hours of footage using 5 x FHD 1080p channels.
The enhanced version of Street Angel also benefits from the Driver ID and panic button features recently introduced to the original solution.
Other features of Street Angel include an SD-card free device with 128GB of internal memory, 24/7 Event monitoring as standard, and superfast 4G connectivity.
Mark Stamper, group managing director at Camera Telematics, commented: “The enhanced Street Angel the on-board digital camera delivers fleet operators unbeatable peace-of-mind in ensuring safer driving associated with company vehicles, but also unbeatable protection against fraudulent insurance claims.
“Fleet managers who adopt Street Angel will have the utmost reassurance of having the most advanced on-board vehicle camera available, which unlike other cameras, uniquely delivers all the features demanded by fleet operators to protect their fleet on one device.”
