VidTeq video maps navigation solution

VidTeq (India) Private Limited announces navigation concept based on Video Maps. Video Map is a feature rich next generation navigable map built on a traditional digital map. Video Map is a video clip of the complete route between source and destination with features such as business logos, background music, turn-by-turn audio overlay, road names etc. embedded into it. Video Map is built of individual geo-tagged video segments.

Driving directions provided traditionally consist of digital map and turn by turn text directions. These directions are easy to follow provided all the streets are marked with clearly visible street nameplates, which is usually not the case in countries like India. This is where need for visual navigation aid arises and the Video Map product would address this space.

Video Map is meant not only for navigation but is also useful for locating businesses and exploring the streets, all sitting in front of your computer.

VidTeq plans to render their service both through Portal as well as Cell phones. Initially the service will be offered only for Bangalore city. The Web service will be offered starting Feb 9th and the Cell based service will be offered in a month from then. As part of the initial service Vidteq will have Video Maps covering all the Main roads and some of the internal roads of Bangalore city.
