EarthCam Shows Exclusive Webcam Technology at International Bridge Conference

New 12 MegapixelCam Advanced Provides Best HD Images for Bridge Documentation


New York, June 7, 2010 -- EarthCam, the international webcam technology experts, will demonstrate the exclusive 12 MegapixelCam Advanced system designed for remote bridge jobsite management and promotion at the International Bridge Conference, June 7-9 in Pittsburgh (Exhibit #408).

The new webcam offers bridge authorities, engineers and construction companies the best live views and image archiving available for monitoring, documenting progress and promotion. The MegapixelCam Advanced is the only system available that combines 640 x 480 live streaming video and high definition megapixel images in one all-weather outdoor camera. The system also provides archived images for time-lapse movies to enhance public websites. The MegapixelCam Advanced camera is the latest addition to EarthCam’s growing line of webcam systems engineered to meet remote location and budget requirements for long or short-term operations. Fully-managed and delivered as an online service by EarthCam, the powerful systems are an integral part of multiple bridge projects in the United States and Canada. They are used by authorities daily to visually monitor progress, resolve claims and continuously update views of project status for authorities and the public. Cost benefits are realized with enhanced communications, reduced travel and the efficiency of password-protected access over the Internet or mobile devices.

“No bridge project is too big, too small or too isolated to benefit from our webcam technology,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “With solar-power and the newest wireless and satellite access, EarthCam systems are meeting and surpassing the requirements of the bridge project locations around the world. The new EarthCam MegapixelCam Advanced webcam brings live project management and public awareness to new levels,” Cury said. The 12 MegapixelCam Advanced webcam delivers the refined detail of 12.3 million effective pixels, plus impressive 4,288 x 2,848 detailed colorful imaging. A heavy duty enclosure with heater and wiper, as well as an optional remote washer system, protect the camera and provide reliable image continuity. Digital presets also deliver pan/tilt/zoom options within the image for ideal use on live project information websites.
