EarthCam Celebrates 22 Years of Providing High-Quality, Entertaining Webcam Content
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, August 30, 2018 -- EarthCam, the world’s favorite webcam network, is celebrating its twenty-second year of growth today. The company continues its mission of connecting viewers with inspiring and important destinations around the world via the highest-quality live streaming video and time-lapse photography.
To commemorate its 22nd anniversary, EarthCam has expanded the ways in which its content can be viewed and shared. Through increased distribution, EarthCam content can be seen in more places than ever before, including international broadcast television, social media, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, mobile apps and smart appliances. From webcasting world-famous parades and cultural festivals to spreading awareness about extreme weather conditions, EarthCam’s live streaming services are enjoyed by millions of people every day. In addition, EarthCam added several new platforms to its “sharing” initiative, inviting viewers to post their favorite photos to a multitude of social media sites.
New in 2018, EarthCam enhanced its video streaming capabilities, delivering higher-quality streaming video with the introduction of the GigapixelCam X1. This hybrid webcam technology solution performs the function of multiple cameras, delivering 4K broadcast-quality video and 5 billion pixel panoramic photography. This breakthrough technology is now featured at some of EarthCam’s most highly-trafficked tourism locations, including downtown Denver and Philadelphia, which earlier this year webcasted the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl victory parade, and will be installed in Times Square for EarthCam’s annual New Year’s Eve webcast. This innovative system goes beyond the tourism and entertainment industries, with applications in sports and construction. The NFL’s Raiders are incorporating the GigapixelCam X1’s high-quality content into their website, sharing the real-time live views to generate excitement with fans and for more effective ticket sales.
This year’s anniversary is the first one celebrated at the company’s newly-opened headquarters, the EarthCampus. The 10-acre campus is the world’s largest facility dedicated to webcam technology and services, featuring collaborative team spaces and employee-centric design elements. The space recently won an ENR New York Best Project award and was developed to foster the innovation of first-to-market imaging technology and services. In May of this year, EarthCam marked the opening of its new headquarters at a grand opening party with hundreds of its clients, industry partners and media personalities, featuring a special concert by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Elvis Costello.
