San Francisco, Calif., June 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EarthCam, the leading provider of construction camera technology and services, today introduced expanded technologies for AI-powered documentation, progress reporting live and 3D/4D model integration. EarthCam is known for providing the highest resolution cameras in the industry for a wide range of jobsite imaging applications, including AI-edited time-lapse documentation, 360° VR reality capture and multilayer panoramic imaging. The growing list of solutions now includes aerial orthomosaic photography, perimeter security, and live, in-camera AI security analytics. These technologies allow EarthCam customers to stay as informed, if not more informed, than visiting the jobsite in person.
“I would say that realistically it reduced our travel budget for checking each individual job by at least 75% by providing real-time service,” said Paul Smedberg, project manager at CD Smith Construction. “Not a day goes by that I don’t log on to this camera – probably five times…live, in real time it’s day and night for seven-minute shots.
At the heart of the EarthCam ecosystem is edge-based AI that automatically creates an archive of all jobsite activity, 24/7, identifying key equipment, interactions and alerting management on activity in hazardous areas. Hundreds of customizable alerts can be set up, including when an overhead lift is in motion, if PPE is missing, or when workers are very close to energized equipment. Video clips and annotated images are proactively shared with stakeholders to reduce risk and make the job site safer.
“EarthCam continues to infuse the jobsite with digital technology to help improve on-site execution with live visual data,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “With an ever-increasing demand for jobsite information, EarthCam adds significant value through these interconnected technologies, so that ultimately our customers get more for less.”
An entire project can now be recorded using EarthCam’s Edge Video Recorder (EVR), which captures 200% more than the previous maximum duration, allowing contractors to continuously record HD security video for more than a year. EarthCam’s comprehensive suite of visual data services includes daily progress reports, environmental sensor data, 3D model overlays, 4D model integrations with Bentley SYNCHRO, simple sharing with project management platforms and extensive security services.
EarthCam’s Control Center has long been the software of choice among industry leaders for intelligent project documentation, promotion, safety and security. EarthCam offers camera rental, professional installation and reality capture services to make construction project management more efficient with powerful visual data.
