Bringing live views of nature out of hibernation with Axis
The Internet Nature Channel shows the bird’s eye view with streaming Axis network cameras
“Axis is a brand I know and have had great success with. People come to me and ask about other cameras, and I say “I don’t know” because all I know is that the Axis cameras always work for me.” James Sessions, President, JES Hardware Solutions.
As multimedia interest has grown in the age of video on demand across the world, JES Hardware Solutions set out to design a creative solution for live streaming. In support of organizations across the United States, JES centralized efforts on the Internet Nature Channel (INC) and strategized with groups to fulfill each one’s desire to add live and recorded video to their online presence. As most people rarely have the chance to view most animals in their natural habitat, the goal with these projects is to bring that experience to those who can’t go seek it out on their own.
Using varying high-definition Axis PTZ and fixed network cameras, INC has helped a selection of charities and further organizations in their implementation of a live streaming camera. The process has included inventive and resourceful solutions when working in un-ideal and remote conditions, many times going to high ground and other places where people never thought cameras could be placed.
As INC spread its portfolio, more organizations have jumped on the opportunity to partner with them for a streaming camera. From a beaver dam to a pair of falcons on the Hudson River in New York, the cameras have brought on continued surprises and positive views that are often shared globally. With the ability to go viral, the national bald eagle drew over five million unique visitors in one day to go along with multiple pieces of national coverage linking to the stream. The hope is to continue to branch out and share the beauties of wildlife in its natural habitats.
