    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.

    About VidTeq:
    VidTeq (India) Private Limited is the first to introduce Video Map based solution for road navigation. The company is founded by Chandra Thimmannagari, Ravi Narala and Muraleedhara Navada. The company has built a whole set of proprietary tools to handle the complete process of Video capture/edit and geo-tagging of Videos and Images. Our mission is to be the world's leading provider of Video Maps and be the leader in road navigation for developing countries like India and Others.

    Currently we offer two features which are - Find Location and Find Directions. Find Location feature helps you with finding any POI (Point-Of-Interest) or Address in Bangalore city and locates it over the Digital Map. To get started with this feature you need to type in a POI name or Address in the box and press the Locate button. You will see a list of POI's/Address's that match with your text getting displayed while being located over the Digital Map. In some cases you may find zero matches for some of the POI's and Addresses, this is mainly because they don't exist in our database. We are working real hard to populate our database with the complete data and we promise to get there over the next few months. Please be patient.


    Find Direction feature helps you with providing directions from any given source to any given destination within Bangalore city. We help you by providing Video Map, Digital Map and Landmark based Text directions. Video Map is a video clip of the complete route from Source to Destination. It carries bunch of rich features such as background music, turn-by-turn audio overlay, road name, business logos etc. Digital Map provides the shortest route from a given source to a given destination. You will also see flashing POI's and DOI's (Decision-Point-Of-Interest) sitting over the Digital Map. Text directions provide you with turn-by-turn directions along with integrated Images. To get started with this feature you need to type in a source and a destination address in the boxes provided and press the GOVID button. You will see the video container playing Video Map of the selected route, digital map container showing the shortest route along with the POI's and DOI's that lie on the route and the text container showing landmark based text directions with integrated POI's and DOI's. In some cases (mainly internal roads) you may find the video to be missing and this is mainly because we are still in the process of populating the complete video database. We should have all the internal roads covered over the next few months. Please be patient. We are here to help you out.
