There’s been a lot of talk lately about using live camera hosting, specifically eagle cams, to drum up support for sustainability, biodiversity and wildlife projects.
Yes, it’s true that it works.
It’s fun providing live video solutions for ski resorts, famous golf destinations, breathtaking beaches and all of the other places I so desperately wish I was at right now…but, I have to say, we take special pride in our clients who are using their HD Relay live video services to raise awareness for good causes.
One of those is Veolia. Veolia is in the top tier of the trendsetting businesses using webcams to produce their own “live nesting birds show.”
In case you aren’t familiar with Veolia, they hold the largest wastewater contract in the entire United States. In 2014 alone, they supplied 96 million people with drinking water, 60 million people with wastewater service, produced 52 million megawatt hours of energy and converted 31 million metric tons of waste into new materials and energy.

And they don’t stop there. They have multiple wildlife projects, one of which is supported by a Live Falcon Camera.
It is being viewed by over 30,000 people each month and acting as a substantial support to their efforts to bring back the endangered Peregrine Falcons. Via the camera and its recordings, people can watch and listen to the recently re-introduced species as they hatch their chicks each fall.
It is common for our clients to see a 500-600% increase in web traffic when they add a permanent live stream. And as you can imagine, in the eyes of potential donors, a sight like this gives life to the project. Supporters are visually stimulated and emotionally driven, just like the rest of us!
Plus, it’s really fun to watch. We use mirrored camera housings so the birds have fun and get up-close-and-personal.
If you have something to show off, such as a biodiversity project, sustainability project, wildlife, aquarium, travel destination, construction site, showroom, golf resort or ski resort, here is how you can set up your own 24/7 live video feed:
- Purchase a kit. Kits come fully assembled and ready-to-install (aka fool proof for the “technically challenged”) for recording BOTH audio and video.
- Watch and listen.
- Create and share high-resolution clips and images with your custom branding. Despite how complicated that might sound, it’s really not because we do it for you with features like Point and Click, Fast Forward Playback and Instant Rewind.
No matter what your subject and goals, we are experts at leveraging the power of IP cameras to increase site traffic, ensure repeat visitors and maximize conversion rates. We offer solutions for every budget. For more info on setting up your own live HD cam, contact us.
