IQeye Cameras Donated To National Eagle Center

IQinVision : 27 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Live coverage of Eagles in US National Eagle Center is being accomplished with IQeye megapixel cameras donated by IQinVision
IQeye Cameras Donated To National Eagle Center
IQinVision has announced that the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, MN, is now streaming live footage from their Eagle webcams, using IQinVision HD MegaPixel cameras. IQinVision donated three IQeye MegaPixel cameras and Up-n-Running Consulting and Grant Jensen donated the integration and installation expertise.

The National Eagle Center is an organization that began, and continues today, as a grassroots effort among like-minded people who realize that our nation's symbol and its habitat deserve and need vigilant stewardship. From humble beginnings in the late 1980s, the National Eagle Center has grown to be America's acknowledged authority on eagles and boasts a distinctive, 15,000 square foot interpretive centre on the banks of the Mississippi River in Wabasha, Minnesota. The centre is home to four permanently injured, rehabilitated bald eagles and one golden eagle.

Grant Jensen developed the live Eagle Webcams to allow viewers to watch the daily habits and care of the rehabilitated eagles that live in the centre. "For the project, I received donations of three IQeye HD MegaPixel network cameras from IQinVision, network hardware from Tapemark, servers from Hewlett Packard, and IP camera management software from Milestone Systems," said Jensen. The Eagle Webcam project has a total of five webcams. Four of the cameras are positioned to cover the perched eagles and one camera will broadcast classroom presentations.

"The image quality of our streaming video cameras is fantastic," said Jeff Worrell, Executive Director of the National Eagle Center. "The Eagle Cam project is a vital way for the Eagle Center to expand making its resources available to everyone with the intention to include even those unable to travel to Wabasha to visit our facilities."

The classroom camera will allow people to audit lectures, demonstrations, and other activities remotely so that they can experience the National Eagle Center to further understand why the bald eagle is our national symbol.

"Our visitors love the streaming video," said Heath Sershen, technology development manager at the National Eagle Center. "Many of our visitors live in different cities and come to Wabasha to spend time with the eagles. The webcams allow long-distance access to the centre and the opportunity to watch their favourite eagles from the time the cameras come on in the morning until the time the lights go out in the evening. It's a great way to stay connected to the centre and to the birds that they have come to know."
