What is happening right now in Sydney, in Hong Kong, or in New York? What's the weather like in Helsinki, Venice or Istanbul? The answers are provided by camera systems developed by earth television network and delivered in real-time and live in the form of high-quality television programs.
There are 39 of these cameras installed around the world, and they transmit live programming from well-known international locations.
Every continent has been covered, with a large number of installations in Europe and the USA. These cameras are built for extreme climatic conditions and their state-of-the-art equipment includes MICROMO brushless DC-Servomotors with integrated electronics which control the movement of the highly precise tilt and swivel heads. The systems are remote-controlled and can provide a high-precision 360° vertical and horizontal pan. This ensures truly breath-taking moving time lapse recordings.
All the camera's control functions as well as the downstream television program production are in-house developments for which an international patent application has been submitted.
The television program is transmitted to connecting partners via digital networks. The leading news service in Germany, n-tv, is one of these partners.
Their daily transmissions include the programs LIVEtour and WeltLIVE.
