EarthCam's Construction Camera Technology Makes Headlines in 2015

NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- What do One World Trade Center, The Broad Museum, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Akron Children's Hospital, University of Kentucky and the Sacramento Kings have in common? They've all made headlines this year for celebrating major construction milestones and have also selected EarthCam to document these important accomplishments.

EarthCam's content is featured on news outlets around the world every day. With diverse applications for the hospitality, sports, education and entertainment industries, EarthCam producers have edited time-lapse movies that showcase a wide a range of construction projects.

EarthCam continues to be the chosen construction camera solution by the project teams for the world's most talked about projects, including the Minnesota Vikings' U.S. Bank Stadium, expansion of Denver International Airport and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. Leading companies in the architectural, engineering and construction industries are realizing the immediate and lasting benefits of using EarthCam technology on their jobsites.

"Our fans are very excited about their new home being constructed downtown and one of the most popular ways we've been able to show progress of the U.S. Bank Stadium is the EarthCam time-lapses," said Bryan Harper, Vice President, Content and Production for the Minnesota Vikings. "Multiple EarthCam construction cameras have reliably documented the jobsite for almost two years and these high quality movies will be used to show this project for years to come."

A winning combination of EarthCam's webcam technology found itself on the jobsite for the new Minnesota Vikings' U.S. Bank Stadium and presented executives with the perfect solution for marketing this major industry project. A team of 6 webcams deliver continuous updates of the project and EarthCam's "MVP" solution – the GigapixelCam X10 – offers an unmatched look at the progress. Fans of the purple and gold can follow each stage of construction with a custom public web page, which includes real-time video updates and unprecedented billion pixel panoramas. EarthCam recently premiered a time-lapse movie, highlighting progress to-date from January 2014 to November 2015.

In 2012, Denver International Airport began construction for a 500-room Westin Hotel, public transit center and public plaza. Communication Infrastructure Group, the public relations firm for the project, realized the importance of communicating these developments to the public and enlisted EarthCam to document each stage of construction. Utilizing both live streaming video and megapixel time-lapse webcam technology, construction cameras captured progress from July 2012 to September 2015. The entire process can be seen from foundation to completion with EarthCam's 90-second time-lapse movie.

The first Smithsonian Museum built on the National Mall since 2004, the National Museum of African American History and Culture selected EarthCam's GigapixelCam construction webcam to handle the task of documenting construction of the new museum. Delivering stunning HD imagery and billion pixel panoramas of the jobsite on a public web page, the construction camera is an important way the public and donors can follow the progress until the scheduled completion in 2016. Most recently, EarthCam debuted a time-lapse movie of progress-to-date, detailing construction from May 2012 to November 2015.
