EarthCam's New IP Network Camera Controller for Canon Gives Broadcasters Flexibility in the Field


New York, April 10, 2013 -- What happens when EarthCam pairs their intuitive software and services with Canon's exceptional PTZ cameras? The result is a new high-quality broadcast network camera solution for TV, mobile and digital marketing. Launched at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas, the solution empowers broadcasters with a cost-effective, universally accessible system. Users can remotely control the camera over the internet using EarthCam's Control Center 7 software for a fully-hosted webcasting solution.

Breaking news stories and headlines happen 24/7 and today's broadcasters need to act in an instant. With complete 4G wireless capabilities, the system gives the user the ability to install the camera at a moment's notice for special events. This dramatically reduces the time required to find a suitable location and does not sacrifice image quality or delivery. A major advantage of the system is the ability to install and go – it doesn't require someone to physically stay at the location to control and manage the camera.

Users can remotely control this state-of-the-art system from any desktop or mobile device. Providing extremely high resolution TV-ready images, this professional PTZ solution utilizes a broadcast module to encode and transmit HD video for on-air and other digital applications. When combined with EarthCam's new unique 4G broadband and solar battery kit for the Canon cameras, users have all the benefits of a completely autonomous solar wireless solution. This reliable system accommodates a growing need to have remote standalone cameras for weather and traffic reporting in areas where no existing infrastructure is available. The IP camera controls are compatible with Canon's new XU-80 and BU-46H cameras.

“We are proud to continue delivering innovative technology and services with Canon in a digitally advanced way”, said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “The added value for broadcasters is the ability to deploy remote cameras utilizing a low-cost infrastructure that enables them to seize special opportunities.”

In addition to applications for broadcast television, the new system is ideal for construction camera documentation, public safety, education, entertainment and sporting events. Featuring a high waterproof and dustproof design, this versatile system is optimized for both indoor and outdoor use.
