CAMERA SYSTEM

Camera System

The quality of our images takes priority - even under difficult light conditions! We do not compromise! Our time-lapse cameras are more than webcams. Contrary to your ordinary netwerk camera, we use professional full-format cameras with a sensor resolution of presently up to 51 megapixels. To optimally use this resolution, we only use high-end optics. In the ultra-wide-angle, we get 117 ° (horizontal), without distorted horizons. Furthermore, the high dynamic range of our cameras lets us capture brilliant images in virtually any lighting condition. The images created thereby are the basis of your creative and technical building documentation.

In order to comply with our high quality demands to a time lapse camera system, we have started developing our own hardware and software many years ago. In addition to image quality, we also focus on stability and durability, regardless of difficult environments.

The locations we place our camera systems at are usually not the friendliest environment for high-end electronic equipment: They have to face everything from ice-cold winter temperatures to desert climates, from sandstorms to snowstorms. Our system design ensures maximum stability and durability regardless of climate condition and weather.

DATA MANAGEMENT

Workflow / Data Management

Being time lapse specialists, we built our workflow to make the journey of the millions of high resolution pictures from the camera all the way into the finished film safe, secure, and efficient. For this, we developed special hard- and software solutions.

Our camera systems on site already redundantly save the pictures. For large projects with lots of cameras, we provide an additional on-site back-up server. After transferring the pictures to our internal servers, they are ingested into our proprietary post production pipeline. They are then processed for editing.
 
All steps until here are fully automated. When our creative team starts to work on your film, they already have the footage ready for production, and can focus on telling the story of your project.
 
After project completion, all data will be copied and securely stored at 2 separate locations, one being a fireproof safe off the premises.

Time Lapse Production

Creative Time Lapse Film Production

Capturing great imagery is only the first step towards an amazing time lapse film. Utilizing our state-of-the-art post production infrastructure, we select the best and most interesting sequences out of the millions of pictures, and creatively edit them into a film.
 
For us, time lapse is not just a series of images played back in sequence. It is an art form that requires a lot of creativity to be fully mastered. We don’t believe in a one-fits-all time lapse approach. Different actions require different techniques, and no project is like any other. We believe that each project deserves a unique and creative approach.
 
In addition to the final project film we also offer producing time lapse films during construction. These are great for being shown at events like the groundbreaking the topping-out, but also for communicating your progress to everybody involved, or the public. No matter which of our service packages you decide for, with access to our high-resolution footage, we are always able to produce an artful film for you.
