Here we have a category or collection of dashcams that all feature full High Definition (HD) video recording capabilities. You may have heard the term 1080p before when it comes to TV screens, 1080 simply refers to the number of lines of resolution that can be displayed (or in the case of dashcams: the number of lines that may be recorded). A full HD dashboard video camera captures video footage at a resolution of 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high. Essentially, 1080p dash cams offer *amazing* video quality; it is the highest quality possible at this time. Watch some of the sample footage of the dash cameras listed below (on each respective product page) to see for yourself.
Why is having the best quality video footage important? One answer to this question may arise should the video captured ever be needed to prove innocence or guilt in a court of law. Not only would clear video evidence of the events that transpired help to make the case, but high definition may allow evidence to be extracted from the video (such as zooming in on a distant vehicle's license plate) that might not have been possible with lesser quality video. Another scenario would be capturing something interesting or amazing on video. Footage of incredible events may often be sold to news stations, TV networks, or online for significant amounts of money. Of course, the better the quality is of the footage, the higher price it may fetch.
