Looking for higher resolution imagery to present online live progress of a big building project? Then you might look for a new webcam offering from Work Zone Cam, www.workzonecam.com, New York, N.Y., which asserts that the ability to market project progress is one of the fastest growing expectations when a webcam is on a jobsite.

The supplier of “all-in-one” digital SLR (single-lens reflex) construction cameras, has announced a new 18-megapixel webcam, which the company says provides clients with more than nine times the image clarity of any other jobsite camera available.

In addition to the 18MP construction webcam, Work Zone Cam is launching advanced software with features tailored to the needs of project teams to document and time-lapse jobsite progress. Wireless and solar options are available for the upgraded camera.

The upgraded camera is available for purchase online through Amazon, www.amazon.com, or B&H Photo Video, www.bhphotovideo.com, where customers can choose connectivity with a built-in cellular modem from Verizon, Sprint or Global/SIM (subscriber identity module) card.

Project teams in the construction, retail, healthcare, education, and multi-family housing industries are able to FTP high-definition images to their own local computer without a monthly service fee.

Clients preferring “a hands-off experience,” can choose 4MP, 8MP, and 18MP image hosting by Work Zone Cam for a monthly fee that includes secure image storage, an online viewer interface, public webpage, mobile support and instant time-lapse movies.

The new interface moves from Flash to HTML5. This highly scalable platform, explains the company, has faster image loading time and the ability to be responsive in multiple browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and the iOS and Android mobile operating systems.

With the new Work Zone Cam software, users can choose from multiple templates, including three new customizable interfaces, edit the camera’s public page and see the changes immediately. It is also easier, says the vendor, for companies to publicly promote a project with added share options for Facebook and Twitter.

Projects documented by Work Zone Cam include the Orlando Citrus Bowl, MNDOT roadwork, Chicago O’Hare Modernization Program, Edward Andrews Homes, and The BIG Maze at the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C.
