10 billion pixel camera offered by EarthCam.net
To say the GigapixelCam X10 is a high-powered camera is an understatement.
The camera, unveiled by EarthCam.net at Conexpo 2014, is capable of taking 10 billion pixel, 360º panoramic images. “We help monitor, document and promote,” said Brian Cury, CEO and founder of the company.
The monitoring comes in the form of live-streaming video that can bring the job site to a desktop. The documenting is achieved through archiving photos throughout the process, should a dispute surface.
But the promoting – that is increasingly of the most interest to those in the construction industry, Cury said. “The fastest growing aspect of our business in the construction industry is marketing,” he said.
Construction firms and developers have seen the value in showing high-impact images of their projects. For example, many stadium construction projects are shot with EarthCam.net cameras. The time-lapse images provide an eye-catching look at the construction firm’s work.
The camera is mounted at a high location on the job site, such as a telephone pole. The panoramic capabilities ensure projects of all shapes and sizes are captured. It is built with the construction industry in mind down to the last detail, including performing on dusty job sites. “It even has a wiper to ensure clear images,” Cury said.
