Test setup

I will be using a 128GB Samsung Evo Plus microSD card for the recordings.

Videos
Below is recorded using firmware v1.0.0809 for the front cam and v1.0.0720 for the rear cam:

Front: 2560×1440 30fps with an overall bit rate of 24.8 Mb/s using High bitrate mode with WDR on.

 

Rear: 1920×1080 30fps with an overall bit rate of 12.8 Mb/s using High bitrate mode with WDR on. Interior cam is with IR auto mode.

 

Interior: 1920×1080 30fps with an overall bit rate of 9,020 kb/s using High bitrate mode with WDR on. Interior cam is with IR auto mode.

 

 

Final thoughts
This is a new design for 3 channels from Viofo.

The interior cam can be adjusted outwards to record the driver’s window if required when stopped by authorities.

I like that you can stick the T130 upside down for right-hand drive vehicles and can set to rotate the video image in the settings for 3 cameras.

I don’t notice the purple hue for dark color for the rear camera using the OmniVision OS02C10 sensor when using Auto IR mode which you usually get from other sensors.

Really like that you can easily change the interior cam IR mode by pressing the WiFi button on the T130.

Viofo said they will be changing the rear cam cable to be a straight head instead of the right-angled head as some vehicle’s low-angle rear windscreen is unable to mount properly with the cable coming from the top.

I also wish the rear cam cable to be a bit slimmer as such thick cables will have some difficulty in installing on some vehicles.

    Think the launch might be delayed. Z40’s rear cam is clearer.
