EarthCam First to Market with 8K Time-Lapse Camera System at World of Concrete
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, January 24, 2018 -- World of Concrete, the first major construction show of the year, always showcases industry-leading technology and this year is no different. EarthCam is announcing the first 8K time-lapse camera system designed specifically for the building industry. World of Concrete attendees can visit Exhibit #C3409 from January 24-26 to learn more about the MegapixelCam 8K and other leading construction camera technologies.
The MegapixelCam 8K, which provides ultra-high resolution images using full frame camera technology, requires a new complex infrastructure that can manage, edit and render the massive files this camera creates. EarthCam understands that the camera is the easy part. It’s the commitment by a team of creative editors over the course of the project that produces the most valuable content. EarthCam’s time-lapse team, with over 75 years of experience, has produced award winning movies that have generated over 25 million views on YouTube and have been featured in countless TV shows and documentaries. The camera is a project management tool during construction but it is the 8K time-lapse movie that will endure long after the building is finished.
"At EarthCam, we focus on overdelivering today to meet the expectations of tomorrow. We were the first to provide HD and 4K time-lapse services to the construction industry long before they became standards," said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “Archiving 8K video may seem unnecessary today, however when you are documenting megaprojects, lasting three years or more, like we are, the time-lapse content we provide our visionary clients will be the emerging technology
Additional EarthCam technology featured at World of Concrete:
ConstructionCam HD – Also premiering at the show, the 8th generation ConstructionCam featuring broadcast quality settings and an impressive 360x zoom. Ideal for live streaming to a public web page, the camera has increased low light sensitivity, color saturation and near instant focus. With a robotic 360° field of view, the ConstructionCam HD is able to generate panoramas over 500 megapixels. The included 4G LTE cellular modem makes this camera easy to deploy and a valuable addition to most projects.
GigapixelCam X10 – EarthCam’s GigapixelCam X10 is capable of producing over 10 billion pixel panoramas. The camera comes equipped with a 300mm robotic lens and a 360° programmable pan/tilt base, allowing for extensive coverage of large long-term projects. The built-in onboard storage backup and remotely controlled wiper ensure that the system can reside in harsh or difficult to reach areas for years. The exclusive camera system is currently being used by the project teams at Hudson Yards, Newark Airport expansion and the Golden State Warriors Chase Center.
VR Site Tour – Providing a 360° walk through of your jobsite every day. This do-it-yourself mobile application assembles 360° images into a virtual reality guided tour, giving stakeholders the ability to remotely inspect each room and explore the jobsite in real-time. Environmental data sensors built into the camera platform encode each image with temperature, humidity and dew point, providing critical data for daily work relying on particular environmental conditions. EarthCam will be handing out a limited number of branded VR Goggles to World of Concrete attendees.
Each EarthCam camera system can be customized with solar and wireless options, including transmitting over global wireless networks. Additionally, EarthCam offers installation services worldwide and meets requirements for projects of any length and budget.
