EarthCam Launches Service to Stream Construction Cameras Live on Facebook and YouTube
Control Center 8.2 software expands construction camera marketing tools
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, March 8, 2017 -- EarthCam, the leader in construction camera technology, released an upgrade to its popular Control Center 8 software-as-a-service (SaaS). With 44 new enhancements, Control Center 8.2 is designed to support public outreach efforts, providing features that promote and create buzz about jobsite progress.
EarthCam’s software updates include the ability for clients to stream EarthCam’s live construction cameras directly to Facebook and YouTube. A recent live video on EarthCam's YouTube channel was watched by over two million people. Facebook Live posts by EarthCam reach an average 50,000 viewers daily. These platforms mean project owners, general contractors and developers can reach even more people with compelling content from their construction cameras, promoting positive public relations, transparency and increasing sales.
The building industry loves construction time-lapse movies and although many companies install construction cameras specifically for this reason, these videos rarely reach their full potential. EarthCam’s new software includes features that makes it easy to share these videos throughout construction by posting them directly to YouTube and Facebook, supporting their clients global outreach efforts. EarthCam time-lapse movies are the most viewed videos on many of their customers’ YouTube channels, including the Atlanta Falcons, Governor of Connecticut and Skanska USA. Sharing jobsite progress, whether it’s exciting fans about a stadium or informing a community about civil construction projects, can now be a viral cross-platform video with an always increasing ROI as online views increase.
Streaming video is estimated to be a $70 billion business by 2021. Control Center 8.2 provides tools that help the building industry take advantage of this growing market by automatically creating video packages that are social media-ready and can be presented to internal teams and shareholders. EarthCam’s new streaming video service is easily embedded on clients’ websites for projects ranging from retail to hospitals, museums and schools. Other new features include 4K video streaming, instant time-lapse movies and the interactive hall of fame which allows viewers to curate the best images from the cameras, all of which provide even more content for project sales and marketing teams.
Additional Control Center 8.2 features include enhanced panoramas as well as integration with EarthCam’s UAV service and drone videos created by individuals. Control Center 8.2 for construction cameras is now available. For further information, call 1-800-327-8422 or click on www.earthcam.net/contactus.
