Summary

Summary: 
An Austrian IT service and webcam company offers webcams and panorama cameras (hardware) including also a cloud solution system (software) for the tourism, construction and meteorology sectors. The new webcam system has the highest image resolution worldwide (with up to 300-megapixel) including cloud solution system. The new camera system can also be used for construction progress documentation. The company is looking for distribution partners and provides all necessary technical assistance.

Description

Description: 

The Austrian company develops, plans and sets up webcams, panorama cameras and weather information systems. The products range from snapshot systems to complex panorama picture systems combined with weather stations. They also supply autonomous systems with solar power units and mobile data transmission. The customers particularly appreciate the great experience as well as the high flexibility, quality and stability of the systems.

The offered system is characterized by 360° panorama web-cameras with a resolution up to 300 megapixels (highest resolution on the market). The system can present regions by means of a 360° panorama camera (with VR function) or a webcam with a fixed viewing angle up to 109°. In addition, with the help of a low-cost cardboard box for a few Euros, all smartphones transform into virtual reality glasses. According to specific needs, additionally real images in motion can be offered. Live stream is possible when the internet connection is sufficient.

The webcams are also in use at construction sites where they help with the supervision of construction projects. It allows to always be informed about the construction progress with a simple mouse click, independent of the operating system. The data of the documentation can also be used for public relations during or after the construction project. For construction sites, the system can also be rented out.

The cloud solution system of the company created transforms each webcam or panorama camera into an advanced marketing tool by the means to represent all information with one webcam image. It works simple by overlaying the webcam image with an information layer that contains several features:
- an overview map (for orientation)
- weather data (or forecast)
- compass (orientation and viewing angle of the camera)
- news ticker or RSS (Rich Site Summary) feeds (points out special offers and events)
- hot spots (embedded links or videos about points of interests)
- multiple camera slider (displays images of all webcams from one region)

If no power source is available at the location, it is possible to use different sorts of solar panels for powering the webcams. Conventional internet connections are sufficient for the data transfer which is also safe due to the use of a virtual private network box for each webcam. The webcams can either be installed on a pole or wall.

Several different webcams are offered by other companies, but rarely with 360°pictures and not in a comparable quality. Compared to the competitors this system allows:
- the worldwide highest resolution (up to 300 megapixel)
- display of 360° spherical panorama pictures
- Virtual Reality (VR) view is possible with VR glasses
- overlay of additional information
- simultaneously live streaming or time-delayed high-definition (HD) live video clips

Distribution service agreements are sought. The company provides all technical support, training and will guide the installation to be successful. Commercial Agreements with technical assistance and also license agreements are possible. The Austrian company wants to expand in new markets in Europe and beyond.
The potential partner should have experience with camera hardware as well as support related issues. The partner will be tasked with selling and installing the cameras. The possible partner for the construction sector should have contacts to architects, construction companies and investors, real estates, property and building developers, etc. The company offers for construction sites support to find the best spot for the webcam if a map of the location is available.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The innovative systems is characterised by: - highest image resolution worldwide (up to 300 megapixels) - permanent generation of 360° spherical panoramic images - usable for virtual reality - producing video clips including time-delayed live video in HD quality - a cloud solution with a self-editable content management system The cloud solution system is not only a communication tool, it also carries information. Therefore, one webcam image shows all the relevant information about the hotel, ski resort, camping site, national park or city etc. The customer menu not only allows the end customer to edit their information and news at any time with the content management system, secondary customer menu access can also be sold by them to e.g. hotels or shops in the near vicinity. The webcams can be used for tracking the construction progress and the time-lapse video afterwards can be used for public relations. In addition, the linking of the webcams with our over 2000 partner platforms generate additional clicks which makes it easier to be found online, even if customers have not specifically searched for you. With analytical software, the access rates per time can be evaluated as well.
