EarthCam Showcases Construction Camera Technology and New Software Features at World of Concrete


New York, February 1, 2013 -- EarthCam, the leader in providing webcam technology and services to the construction industry, will demonstrate its innovative construction camera solutions and software at the 2013 World of Concrete trade show (Exhibit #C4016), February 5-8 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

EarthCam will be showing the latest update of its revolutionary Control Center 7 software with updated features that elevate the user experience. Version 7.10 includes new tools such as a battery backup system and an enhanced memory backup system. During any loss of connectivity, the battery back-up steps in to keep the camera powered and alert to the loss of utility power. In the event of loss of internet connectivity, the memory backup system will allow the camera to continue archiving images until connectivity is restored. These features combine to help ensure that valuable progress footage is not lost. Stored images are automatically uploaded after connectivity is reestablished. Users can also monitor the amount of storage available for their system, how many images have been archived and overall historical data of power and connectivity performance. With the updated streaming time-lapse download feature, users can retrieve time-lapse movies on-demand for an instant look at the progress for their project for a given date range. Advanced camera controls are now available for the GigapixelCam and StreamCam HD systems, producing a professional-quality stream.

Visitors to EarthCam's exhibit can also view a live demonstration of EarthCam's new GigapixelCam. The GigapixelCam is the world's first automated outdoor gigapixel webcam, the ultimate in documentation photography. This rugged webcam auto-generates impressive 360° panoramas, over 1000 megapixels in size. Complete with live video, user-controllable pan/tilt/zoom controls and snapshot on-demand, the system is perfectly suited to document projects with a large scope, such as stadiums, museums and mixed-use developments. The GigapixelCam captures progress with ultra high resolution images companies can use to market their projects in striking panoramas and cinematic time-lapse movies.
