EarthCam’s new 5G StreamCam, the world’s first 5G multi-network camera system
World’s first 5G construction camera – EarthCam’s 5G StreamCam – at a Lower Manhattan jobsite
Upper Saddle River, New Jersey, October 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – EarthCam, the leading provider of webcam technology and expedited services, announced today at ENR FutureTech, the industry’s first 5G construction camera. Through collaboration with Sierra Wireless, Verizon, and AT&T, EarthCam’s 5G implementation can send an almost unlimited amount of visual data from the jobsite. It enables new live streaming, drone and security analysis applications, as well as the highest quality, accelerated documentation.
EarthCam’s new 5G StreamCam offers powerful 4K streaming, 10 megapixel photography and low cost of ownership, making it the optimal jobsite camera. A built-in Edge video recorder allows continuous recording for 120 days. Downloading a full day of security recordings takes less than 5 minutes, previously with 4G this same transfer took over two hours. A rugged housing and maintenance-free wiper make the StreamCam 5G ideal for the most demanding environments. Remote diagnostics, battery and data backup optimize performance. Solar power upgrades are also available to create a fully self-contained 5G solution.
EarthCam has also introduced multi-network 5G options for its entire camera line, paving the way for the next generation of solutions for transferring Gigapixel RAW image files to advance the art of cinematic time-lapse. Even if it were possible via a 4G connection to transfer a full month of RAW images without network timeout, it would take over 28 hours. Using 5G – approximately 50 minutes.
â5G offers data transfer capability that was previously unobtainable. For the first time. Uncompressed RAW images – the âgold standardâ in photography – are now accessible. Said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam, âFinally, wireless bandwidth is catching up with our unique Gigapixel technology. We are very proud to be able to offer another breakthrough to our clients who want pioneering innovation in order to maximize their investment.
EarthCam has incorporated best-in-class 5G technology from Sierra Wireless to transform the camera setup into a communications hub for site telemetry. Large amounts of data from drones or environmental, safety and security sensors can be accessed quickly thanks to the ultra-low latency of 5G. Wireless lag on the jobsite due to sharing overcrowded urban 4G networks will soon be a concern of the past. EarthCam customers will gain a major competitive advantage by upgrading their existing solutions to 5G, providing vast amounts of bandwidth for their entire jobsite.
5G infrastructure already serves more than 35 countries around the world and its ecosystem is growing at an exponential rate. The introduction of these unique 5G camera solutions strengthens EarthCam’s position as an industry pioneer.
