Innovative MDVR technology in dash cams augment GPS tracking and fleet management to protect commercial fleets better and enhance driver behaviours.

Safer drivers result in better protected assets, people and your bottom line. The emergence of Mobile Digital Video Recording (MDVR) technology is helping commercial fleet managers to reduce the risk of incidents, improve driver behaviour management, and assist with accurate post-accident follow up. The more you can see, the more you can learn from, the safer your fleet and drivers can be.

What is Mobile Digital Video Recording (MDVR)?

Dash cams with Mobile Digital Video Recording (MDVR) technology enables live high-resolution video recording and storing of the video files onto an SD, HDD. Videos can be viewed by the base operator in real time through an integrated GPS fleet management software and video platform. Alternately, operators can download stored files from the SD, HDD or video platform to watch at a later date.

What is an MDVR solution? How is it installed?

An MDVR solution typically involves the hardwiring of an MDVR unit into the vehicle cab, connected to one or more AHD camera(s), and integrated with an innovative, cloud-based GPS fleet management software and video platform.

Together with GPS tracking, an MDVR solution enhances fleet management by combining live HD video streaming and automatic video recording of critical events, with accurate GPS map locations, speed and G-force readings. With greater situational awareness, fleet managers can proactively manage their fleet and coordinate more effective and efficient responses.
