Are you tired of asking driving directions....are you tired of locating a business....We are here to help you out. We are a Bangalore based startup on a mission to help people with providing driving directions and locating a business.


VidTeq (India) Private Limited announces unique and innovative 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 rich features (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 our 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. We have surveyed a list of prominent businesses, points of interest with their accurate location and also captured their photographs. This information in turn is embedded right inside the video and also on the digital map. You can explore the streets i.e. virtually navigate through the streets, and find out what is where even before you step out of the door.


As part of the navigable solution, we provide the following – Video Map of the complete route, Digital Map with Route overlay, Image (Point-of-Interest and Decision-Points) integration and Landmark based Text directions. The Images are integrated both into the Digital Map as well as Text directions. 

We plan on rendering our service both through Portal as well as Cell phones. We also believe that in few years from now we will see Video Maps replacing/complementing Digital Maps in GPS devices. Initially our service will be offered only for Bangalore city. Our Web service will be offered starting Feb 9 th and our Cell based service will be offered in a month from then. As part of our initial service we will have Video Maps covering all the Main roads and some of the internal roads of Bangalore city.
