Building upon its existing integration of live streaming video and megapixel imagery, EarthCam’s Control Center 8 software-as-a-service (SaaS) now gives Procore users access to even more of EarthCam’s high-quality construction camera content, including gigapixel panoramas and interactive 360° VR media, for a comprehensive overview of exterior and interior project progress. The recently released Version 8.5 of EarthCam’s software features added support for Bentley Synchro 4D models and Autodesk BIM 360, where users will benefit from the ability to view their EarthCam cameras in relation to BIM, Navisworks and Revit models. Users can perform live comparisons and execute measurement functions between webcams, 360° VR photography and 2D, 3D or 4D models.
“Our ongoing Procore integration continues to deliver valuable visual information for a successful project management process,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “We are empowering users with data-rich media that is simple to analyze and understand. Clients can easily share updates across their organization to support lean business practices and unify communications.”
EarthCam has created a two-way highway for sharing jobsite imagery with the added support for users to import additional progress photos from their Procore projects into its Control Center 8 SaaS. Project managers can utilize the visual content in several beneficial ways, including adding visual support for efficient RFI management, verifying punch list tasks and expediting submittal reviews by attaching webcam content. Users also have the ability to incorporate 360° photography media into drawings to verify design plans and identify potential safety issues. Additionally, users can access their Procore contact list, making it easy to share important visual updates directly with their team.
Video content is also a major part of this new integration phase, enabling users to share important video recordings and time-lapse movies directly within Procore albums for further insight into jobsite activity. All of the content can be viewed in a full-screen display and is easy to share for effective communications.
Going beyond visual updates, EarthCam also provides integrated sensors to deliver critical jobsite data for further analysis. With EarthCam’s VR Site Tour app, every 360° image includes multiple points of environmental information, including temperature, humidity and dew point at the actual jobsite location. These statistics shed light on real-time conditions that may negatively impact the project timeline or create an unsafe work zone environment, such as icy work surfaces, enabling the team to act swiftly and make important decisions quicker.
In addition to the robust offering, single sign-on (SSO) was also rolled out, enabling Procore users to unify and streamline access across platforms. Combined with EarthCam’s professional line of live streaming video cameras and time-lapse construction cameras, the valuable content is easy to analyze and is driving productivity for a more informative jobsite.
