EarthCam's New H.265 Construction Camera Provides More Frequent, In-Depth Coverage of an Entire Jobsite

EarthCam, the leading provider of construction webcam technology and services, is delivering another industry-first solution to A/E/C professionals with its new ConstructionCam HD. Available today, the construction camera provides unrivaled streaming and archiving of jobsite progress and exclusively utilizes the new H.265 streaming video codec for efficient transmission of high-quality video over abundant 4G wireless data plans.

The new ConstructionCam HD delivers true broadcast-quality live video and high resolution imagery for comprehensive jobsite surveillance. Featuring user controllable 360° panning, a powerful 30x optical zoom and maintenance-free wiper system, the professional-grade webcam is ideal for documenting and promoting projects of any size, from multi-family housing developments to the world’s tallest towers. The ConstructionCam HD is more responsive than previous generations and has the ability to zoom in on specific details up to 3 times faster using a precise, real-time focus system for stunning clarity. The quick zoom and sharp focus capabilities allow faster creation of EarthCam’s signature panoramas and the new lens increases the image size by 50%, efficiently generating progressive depth multilayer panoramas up to 300 megapixels. This enhancement delivers more data to the user for critical insight into the project process, as well as impressive color saturation for more visually dynamic time-lapse movies.

The new ConstructionCam HD goes far beyond a traditional live streaming or time-lapse camera, becoming a serious security tool. Now, with the ability to generate many more of these unique panoramas daily, users will benefit from more detailed and frequent coverage of their entire jobsite, including better surveillance of the perimeter and surrounding areas.

Incorporating state-of-the-art H.265 compression standard, the ConstructionCam HD streams efficiently over wireless 4G data connections, utilizing significantly less data throughout the duration of any project, translating to immediate cost savings for customers. The new energy-efficient solution can be operated using solar power, making this a truly autonomous, versatile system that can be deployed in almost any location. Combined with EarthCam’s software as a service (SaaS) platform, Control Center 8, featuring valuable tools within a smart security dashboard, project teams can easily analyze data, review recordings and share the high-quality content across their organization. Users can also integrate their content with a growing list of partners, such as Procore, PlanGrid, Aconex and Autodesk BIM 360, for a more lean and successful project management process.
