New York, June 14, 2009 -- EarthCam (, the leader in providing webcam software, technology and managed services, will demonstrate advances in webcam systems for dredging projects at the annual Western Dredging Association meeting June 14-17 in Tempe, AZ (Exhibit #44).

The EarthCam exhibit will demonstrate a specially designed ConstructionCam – a robotic streaming video camera for long-term projects in harsh conditions.

EarthCam will also feature the DredgeCam. Built of marine grade materials for caustic environments, the robotic streaming webcam includes a pressurized, rugged aluminum housing, vibration isolation for jitter-free video and a 300x zoom.

The two cameras are powered by EarthCam’s Control Center 7 secure management software, which provides camera management, as well as archiving, and documentation of projects. Features include a project dashboard, live video PTZ control, multiple view presets, security archiving, aerial and satellite views, as well as automated progress reports.
