EarthCam Introduces New Hybrid Construction Camera Technology

4K Live Video and Gigapixel Imagery Deliver Highest-Quality Webcam Content


New York, May 30, 2017 -- EarthCam, the leader in webcam technology, is delivering a new solution to the industry with the introduction of the GigapixelCam X1. The innovative hybrid construction camera boasts broadcast-quality 4K live streaming video for jobsite viewing and gigapixel time-lapse documentation for historic archives.

The GigapixelCam X1 is the first autonomous construction documentation camera to move seamlessly from true broadcast-quality live video to ultra-high resolution imagery. Featuring full user-controllable 360° panning, up to 180° tilt and a built-in 144x zoom, the industrial-grade webcam is ideal for documenting and promoting today's super-structures, world-class stadiums and impressive bridges. The GigapixelCam X1 is more compact and 50% lighter than previous GigapixelCam generations and has the ability to capture images up to 4 times faster using a super-responsive real-time focus system for stunning clarity. With a larger high-performance image sensor, photos and gigapixel panoramas are displayed with an extraordinary range of brightness levels.

"Our GigapixelCam X1 technology expands far beyond the capabilities of webcams offered today," said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. "Through the powerful combination of superior live video and museum-quality panoramas, this hybrid solution does the work of multiple types of cameras to provide owners, architects and contractors with the high-quality content required to showcase their legacy projects."

EarthCam has created highly-scalable, flexible pricing options to accommodate budgets for projects of all sizes. The new energy-efficient GigapixelCam X1 can be operated using solar power and 4G cellular data, making this a truly wireless and versatile system that can be installed in most locations.
