EarthCam Celebrates 27 Years
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, August 30, 2023 -- EarthCam, the global leader in live camera technology, content and services, is celebrating 27 years of innovation in imaging and software this week. EarthCam continues to be the premier solution provider for an array of industries, from live broadcast TV services to construction time-lapse documentation.
EarthCam continues to engage hundreds of millions of viewers around the world, and in the last 12 months has launched new live-streaming destinations - from Alaska to Taiwan, and from Wales to Waikiki. EarthCam created a series of cameras for Scotts Lawn Care that spawned ‘Lawnstream’, a 24/7 live-streaming campaign created to watch grass grow!
EarthCam premiered a new service to make it easier for broadcasters worldwide to regularly feature EarthCam live video and time-lapse in their programming. Media Priority Access allows broadcasters to seamlessly go to air with EarthCam’s content. News affiliates, including FOX, CBS, NBC, ABC, Brazil’s Globo, Japan’s Fuji TV, BBC, 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. The number of media professionals that access EarthCam’s live-streaming content increased 100% in 2023.
New time-lapse videos of the construction industry’s most significant projects have contributed to this growth over the last 12 months. Over 20 years since the original church was destroyed during the 9/11 attacks, the new St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine, designed by Santiago Calatrava, opened in lower Manhattan in December 2022. EarthCam contributed funds along with the church to cover the documentation of the complete ground-up rebuild in a 4K time-lapse.
Other important time-lapse projects include ‘The Embrace’ memorial for Martin Luther King Jr. in Boston and the new 29-acre Silicon Valley campus which became the new LinkedIn Headquarters. For the Porsche USA HQ in Atlanta, EarthCam documented the addition of its West Track – inspired by the world's best roads and racing turns. The new State of Texas Capitol Complex in Austin completed phase one of construction, captured by EarthCam, and another notable 4K time-lapse was the new Gilder Center for the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
Continuing its legacy of documenting the world’s largest stadiums, EarthCam captured construction of five 2022 FIFA World Cup venues, and was also awarded the webcam technology contract for the new $1.5 billion Buffalo Bills stadium. In a much shorter term project, EarthCam documented the remarkable speed of the I-95 emergency repair after a fiery tanker incident caused its collapse.
EarthCam delivered numerous new innovations for the construction industry during the last year, including breakthrough AI safety analytics, documenting when workers are at height – helping safety personnel ensure good risk management to reduce accidents, combating the number one cause of fatalities on jobsites. EarthCam premiered a new series of videos entitled ‘Construction Points of View’ this year, showcasing a cross section of industry voices explaining best practices for monitoring and documenting construction.
In addition to making lives better and safer in construction, EarthCam has added technology partnerships this past year including CMiC and Projectmates. In 2023, EarthCam deepened integrations with Autodesk and Procore, expanding its position as the number one site camera integrator.
