EarthCam Celebrates 19 Years as the Webcam Technology Leader

NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 2015 has already proven to be a busy year for EarthCam, and the company has made a big impact on the way construction teams can document their most important projects with the release of groundbreaking webcam technology. Today, as EarthCam celebrates its 19th anniversary, the construction camera innovator is taking a look back at the exciting year it's had so far and announcing another new offering.

EarthCam kicked off the year with the introduction of its new product line for 2015, featuring the GigapixelCam X10 and the StreamCam 4K. Engineered to document and promote stadiums, bridges and airports, the patent-pending GigapixelCam X10 is capable of producing over 10 billion pixel panoramas and comes equipped with a 360° programmable robotic base, allowing for extensive coverage of large scale projects. The StreamCam 4K takes live streaming video to another level. With outstanding image quality, the broadcast-quality system is perfectly suited for sharing live views of any construction site, special event or tourist destination. EarthCam's unique content and time-lapse movies are a big reason why the company is leading the industry on social media, with more than 12 million views on YouTube.

To commemorate its 19 years, EarthCam is introducing 'My EarthCam' – the best way to build an independent, personalized webcam site that can be viewed on any PC or mobile device. The online community is a new way for anyone to share views of their scenic destination, local wildlife and even their construction project. Offered to consumers at no cost, users will have their page up and running in a matter of minutes, and can immediately begin broadcasting their views to the world. Other features include the ability to record an archive clip and the opportunity for owners to share their favorite images from their webcam on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and EarthCam's social feed, which receives millions of views per month.

Earlier this year, the company also announced the construction of its new world headquarters in Northern NJ. The 10-acre campus is designed by renowned architecture firm, Davis Brody Bond, and is situated in a park-like setting.
