The new VeQtr™
(pronounced "vector") builds on our
GPS-based data acquisition systems, combining high performance GPS data acquisition with new video
capture and processing solutions. VeQtr™ is a
breakthrough in capability, price, and ease of use.
The VeQtr™ system works with the Quantum™
for video capture and data overlay generation. It also supports third
party video cameras for overlay generation only (see below). Capabilities
- Video recording at up to 800x600¹
- GPS data acquisition of key performance measurements such as Lateral G,
MPH, track maps, lap and segment times, and more
- View video simultaneously with data in our improved data analysis
software; even view two videos side-by-side for comparison
- Produce video with data overlays of the whole run or just the
- Upload directly to YouTube; export to Google Earth
- Battery powered and easy to use
Systems starting at $1299

widescreeen video and incoporate data directly into the video frame! Play back video synchronized with data for detailed analysis!
Our VeQtr™ system combines the Quantum™ with a small netbook
computer that captures the video and data and allows immediate viewing of the
high-quality webcams can be mounted anywhere on the vehicle to provide many
exciting video angles.²
Supports up to four cameras.³ Operation
is fully automatic - both data and video are triggered by vehicle speed, and
both include a preroll buffer to capture data and video before the trigger
point. You never again have to remember to turn on your camera!
Recording time is limited only by free disk space, typically 900 MB/hour at 640x480 but user configurable over a wide range, making it
possible to record continuously for days.
After recording, view the video and data immediately on the notebook
computer - no need to download to a separate laptop! Data overlays can
be produced in real-time, with no need to synchronize the data to the video
and no need for post processing. Or generate data overlays directly
from the data analysis software for greater flexibility.
What if you already own a video camera? You can choose a software-only upgrade that will allow you to combine your data with your video
and generate data overlays via post processing. View your video synchronized to your data in our Chart analysis software. Generate video clips
all or only a portion of the video. Even upload directly to YouTube!
Q. Does the netbook computer stay in the car?
A. Yes, it goes along for the ride, because it runs the cameras and provides
the memory and processing power for capturing the video and data.
Solid-state memory makes it rugged and vibration-tolerant. Familiar
Windows XP user interface makes it easy to use.
Q. How do I mount the netbook?
A. In a car with a full interior, because the netbook is small and thin, you
can simply drop it into a map pocket or wedge it between the seat leg
bolster and the center console. In a prepared racecar, you can Velcro
it to the floorpan, or rivet in a small baking tray to hold it and secure it
with a strap over the top. Please note that the system normally runs
with the cover closed, and operation is automatic once it is started, so
there's no particular need for it to be mounted near the driver. For
other vehicle mounting solutions, check out
Q. How do I mount the cameras?
A. Expensive and heavy camera mounts are unnecessary. We provide a
small suction cup mount which is normally used to mount the forward-facing
primary camera to the inside of the front windshield. A finger pump on
the side creates a vacuum. The secondary camera (usually pointing at
the driver) can be taped to the dashboard or secured to a rollbar with a
cable tie. It can also be mounted to suction cup mount along with the
Q. The sample videos you show on this page look very good. Are
those actually captured using a VeQtr™ system or have they been processed
A. All videos on this page were captured using the standard VeQtr™ system.
The only processing performed was to compress them further for web download,
so actually the originals look better than what you see here.
Q. How do I pronounce "VeQtr™"?
A. Simply say "vector".
user-selectable over a wide range of frame and picture-in-picture sizes.
Default setting is 640x320 widescreen @ 30 FPS which gives good quality results
on the minimum recommended system (Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz, Windows XP).
800x600 @ 30 FPS is possible on dual-core processors. FPS
is a function of processor speed, operating system, and compression algorithm,
and may change during video capture depending on CPU load, compression algorithm,
ambient lighting, hard drive speed, and other factors. 60 FPS and higher
frame rates are possible with compatible cameras. Studio quality
recording can be achieved using uncompressed video at the expense of hard drive
Interior mounting recommended. External mounting only in dry conditions. Cameras and laptop are not intrinsically waterproof,
but may be placed inside protective housings (not included). Do not mount
near intense heat sources. Contact MaxQData to discuss special
