Lytx will begin offering an enhanced video monitoring system for commercial and government fleets that provides additional capability over its DriveCam product, the company has announced.
Lytx Video Services, which will be available by April 1, offers an in-vehicle video system that combines a cloud-connected event recorder and video cameras with new dashboard Lytx Workspace to provide more precise data for accident management.
The brain of the system is a new ER-SF64 event recorder that offers a driver-facing lens that captures 12- or 20-second exception-based video clips; an outside lens with continually recording video with an option to livestream video; a cloud-connected digital video recorder (DVR) with 64 gigabytes of memory; advanced sensors such as accelerometers to detect speed, gyroscopes to detect motion, and GPS to detect location; and compatibility with third-party PAL- or NTSC-based cameras.
The DVR can record up to 100 hours of footage, and up to 12 additional third-party cameras can be connected.
"The key is giving our clients the ability to easily go back to a specific point in time to see exactly what happened from any view they desire," said Brandon Nixon, Lytx chairman and chief executive. "This ability to see more — and therefore know and do more — about what's happening in the vehicle and in the field could completely transform how a fleet operates."
