SAN DIEGO – Lytx, a provider of machine vision and artificial intelligence-powered video telematics, analytics, productivity and safety solutions, released two new map-based search features that allow users to quickly locate video clips. Video Browse in Fleet Tracking and Map Search in Lytx Video Platform each enable fleets to self-service and immediately retrieve video footage.

“These video-search features are significant advancements that enable fleets to take further advantage of their Lytx programs,” said Jim Brady, Lytx vice president of product management. “The features address common pain points by allowing fleets to more efficiently self-service in a number of scenarios, rather than toggling between programs or relying on their provider to locate and fetch clips. We’re pleased to offer Video Browse and Map Search at no additional charge so that every Lytx client can benefit from more streamlined processes and improved efficiencies, while providing high-quality service to their customers.”

Video Browse, available within Lytx’s Fleet Tracking Service, integrates all of the available telematics, and links to video, directly into the Fleet Tracking map, fleet operations and safety managers will quickly understand what is happening in their fleets, whether they’re looking to monitor vehicle productivity or maintenance, track compliance or check on a customer complaint.

Map Search, available to all customers who use the Lytx Video Platform, allows clients to self-locate video using only an address or point of interest and general time frame, making it easier to respond to claims, verify service or pinpoint an incident, even if the vehicle is unknown. These two new features are available to Lytx clients for no additional cost.

“With around 800 vehicles, manually sifting through video footage from our event recorders isn’t feasible,” said Patrick Landreth, vice president of safety and human resources at Ozark Motor Lines, a Lytx client. “Compared to past providers, Lytx takes care of the heavy lifting, monitoring driving with its built-in analytics so we can respond quickly, protect our drivers, focus on driver coaching and maintain Ozark’s strong brand reputation for safety and service.

“We love being able to see the thumbnails of video right in the Fleet Tracking map,” he added. “When we are working in that program, it’s easy to just click on a trail point and go directly to the Video Platform where we can view it and see, for example, why someone was idling.  We can even immediately download and save the videos ourselves if we need them.”

Both features enable access to video in near real-time.
