FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, April 19, 2023 -- EarthCam, the leader in live camera technology, content and services, today announced at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show, Media Priority Access for qualified news professionals. The new platform equips media organizations with immediate, newsworthy live-streaming video content from EarthCam’s worldwide camera network.
The Media Priority Access platform caters to the extraordinary growth in demand for broadcast-quality live camera streams for news, weather, traffic and interstitial beauty shots. It provides easy access to 24/7, commercial-free live streams from an array of destinations for incorporation into programming. Dashboards, search functions and an intuitive map interface allow broadcasters to zoom to specific locations and immediately go to air with a relevant view. Curated camera lists are shared for breaking news, weather and featured events. ‘Trending’ cameras are prioritized automatically based on Twitter activity, view count and viral score. First-look edited footage of significant news stories, meteorological events and time-lapse content will be shared on the platform for use by media organizations.
EarthCam has established a vast network of live-streaming cameras over the past two decades. Usage of EarthCam’s real-time feeds by broadcasters surges during their coverage of New Year’s Eve, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, Fourth of July and other popular events. Hundreds of news affiliates, including FOX, CBS, NBC, ABC, The Weather Channel, The New York Times, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal, increasingly rely on EarthCam for live-streaming content to air during extreme weather events, news segments and special-interest coverage. Utilization of EarthCam content is growing exponentially - doubling each year for the past three years.
