World’s first network camera offering streaming video, robotics and HD images


New York, November 2, 2005 -- EarthCam, the leader in providing webcam software, technology and managed services, is pleased to announce the introduction of the first user-controllable megapixel robotic video camera.

EarthCam's MegapixelCam now incorporates precision robotic pan/tilt/zoom controls, allowing clients to create and archive multiple preset compositions. The professional quality temperature controlled housing includes a windshield wiper to ensure clear pictures in adverse weather conditions. Other advanced features include real time streaming video and the ability to create and share High Definition images and panoramas. This system is designed for projects that demand the very best image quality and a variety of camera angles with numerous applications in the construction, security and tourism industries.

"EarthCam's 2006 MegapixelCam Robotic System is a major technological advancement in the evolution of our megapixel product line," according to EarthCam CEO Brian Cury. "This product gives our clients unprecedented flexibility along with the dependability and quality they have come to expect from EarthCam. We are very excited about continuing our reputation as a pioneer in webcam technology."

Integrated with EarthCam’s Megapixel Robotic Control Center software, clients can view live streaming video both online and on their mobile devices. They can supervise critical events from unique vantage points and enhance communication by offering High Definition video and impressive time-lapse movies of their projects.

Until now megapixel webcams were fixed position cameras that didn’t offer pan/tilt/zoom or streaming video. The new MegapixelCam Robotic System is a true network camera that produces broadcast quality images over a local network or Internet connection. No additional PC is necessary. The system is also available for extreme environments in wireless and solar powered configurations.
