The VBOX HD Lite is a custom all-in-one camera designed for motorsport use. If you've tried using other small sports cameras, you'll know they're not ideally suited for the racing environment and often you end up losing all your valuable footage.
The VBOX HD Lite has been designed to have a minimum aerodynamic impact, with a separate power source, separate from the camera, allowing it to be permanently powered.
2 Models available:Road - Supplied with a windscreen suction mount and a pre-wired 12v aux plugRace - Supplied with a universal roll cage camera mount, power cable unterminated
The system starts to record video and data when the car is moving, saving you memory space and time. Data (GPS and CAN) is recorded alongside the video, allowing analysis in the easy-to-use VBOX Circuit Tools software, which is one of the best ways to improve your lap times.
VBOX HD Lite is an all-in-one video data logging system for motorsport that records 1080p HD video with fully synchronised GNSS data. HD Lite features RACELOGIC’s reliable 'only when moving' log strategy, enabling the device to start and stop logging on its own based on vehicle movement, and prevents the microSD card filling up with static video in the paddock.
GNSS data and CAN Bus data is recorded with the video, allowing in depth analysis via our intuitive Circuit Tools data analysis software, enabling the driver to quickly identify where time is being lost and where time can be gained around a circuit. The VBOX HD Lite is also compatible with our predictive lap timing displays which show live Delta time, enabling the driver to improve whilst on track.
PREDICTIVE LAP TIMING
Predictive Lap Timing gives you an invaluable insight into how your current lap time compares with your fastest lap time. To achieve our unrivalled accuracy, two different laps are compared using GPS position rather than distance, 10 or 20 times a second. This means lap times stay accurate, even if the driver takes a different line each lap.
The VBOX OLED display is available as an accessory or as part of a Video VBOX package.

VBOX HD Lite is supplied with a Swivel Neck Suction Mount (RLACS287) for mounting on to a vehicle windscreen. It is attached to the 1/4” UNC screw thread fastener on the underside of the unit. If you want to use other methods to mount the VBOX unit, please see the list of compatible products and accessories.

VBOX HD Lite is powered by the supplied cigar Lighter power supply cable (RLCAB165). Plug it in the vehicle's 12 V cigar power socket and connect it to either of the Hirose connectors at the rear of the unit. The device will boot up automatically as soon as the power supply is connected.
On boot-up, you will hear three beeps in quick succession followed by a single beep. The LED will briefly flash red, then show solid white throughout the boot-up procedure. When the LED is solid green, the device is booted up and ready to record.

OBTAINING THE BEST QUALITY GPS
Correct placement of the GNSS antenna is crucial to the quality of the data recorded by your VBOX HD Lite.
To get the best possible results, you should place the GNSS antenna in the centre of a metal roof. Do not mount the antenna close to the edges of the roof as reflected signals may interfere with your satellite signal.
