What is the benefit of working with very high resolution pictures?
A single camera can give both an overview and a detailed close up.

The raw data from our camera systems is stored on our RAID-5 server, then mirrored and housed separately on a back-up array. After completion of the project, all media is securely archived.
For projects with special security requirements, a data store can be set up to save the data additionally or exclusively on the client's premises.
In parallel with the storage of the raw data, we upload images to an online archive for our clients. The transmission is encrypted and the data is hosted in a German data center.
We create and adjust this archive individually according to your wishes, whether it is to be publicly available online or to be used internally and password-protected for the internal use.
Each camera is equipped with a dual-SIM industrial router with 3G/4G capability. As a backup, an M2M SIM is used for worldwide roaming. This allows us to be sure to be connected to our camera systems at all times.
No additional IT infrastructure is needed on site.
The data transmission is always SSL encrypted and password protected.
Our clients need no convincing of the versatile marketing opportunities afforded by a high quality timelapse production.
As one of our clients, you have unlimited usage rights to all images recorded and movies produced during your project, with the freedom to share and distribute as desired. You can show the films and photos at trade fairs, events and internet portals, publish material to TV channels and integrate them into your company presentation.
