EarthCam's latest version of the Control Center Software includes new features, as well as administrative tools to further assist corporations and government agencies with their project management. Through the use of an expanded reporting system, administrators now have the ability to view a detailed user history for their camera including the time and date of the user's session, the duration of time they spent on the camera and the IP address of the computer system they were using when they accessed the camera. Enhanced server side programming has also been added to help self-heal and maintain each system's uptime. Additionally, clients can set a camera sequence. This allows a user to record a 30 second camera movement and then playback the exact movement sequence in a continuous loop.
The Control Center Software is webcam technology and management software deliverable as an online service and accessible by any browser. By delivering this application over the web, EarthCam is able to include with the Control Center Software its proprietary maintenance infrastructure that provides a complete solution to monitor, serve and maintain video content 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on the Internet. The maintenance infrastructure includes EarthCam's proprietary image monitoring management program, emergency pager and e-mail notification to EarthCam technical support staff, and "self-healing" and corrective programming that is remotely applied to all systems. The around the clock communication between the Control Center Software and the EarthCam server farm has allowed EarthCam to customize the software, as an added feature set, with the real-time date, time, local weather at the location where the camera resides, as well as with a chat room to interact with other users.
