FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, November 26, 2013 -- Nearly 3 million people from around the world journey to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial every year to marvel at the majestic beauty of this important landmark. In the spirit of the holiday season and to celebrate this time of giving, EarthCam, the leaders in webcam technology, and the National Park Service (NPS) are making it possible for even more people to visit this symbol of America with high definition webcam views.
EarthCam is premiering its innovative camera technology to deliver crisp, high resolution 16 megapixel images of this larger-than-life monument. Carved into the Black Hills of South Dakota, the 60-foot tall faces of American presidents George Washington, Andrew Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt proudly gaze upon the surrounding landscape from 500 feet above. EarthCam’s unique webcam with a special 105mm zoom lens invites people worldwide to experience breathtaking close-up views of this massive memorial 24 hours a day. Using a popular photography technique of timed exposure, the night shots feature the magnificent star-lit skies, inviting visitors to enjoy the park long after the gates have closed. To support NPS’s educational initiatives, an interactive overlay presents interesting facts and information about the world’s most famous mountain carving.
