If you’ve followed us for a while, you’ve probably heard us mention the importance of comprehensively planning your long term time lapse projects. And unfortunately, this is an area that we see people either rush through, or skip altogether. Failure to plan is the biggest culprit of a failed - or at the very least, imperfect - project. This is why we’ve placed such an emphasis to build helpful resources to aid in your planning: guides, our time lapse calculator, SD card speed tester, and more.
We’re excited to offer our newest planning tool: the Camera Strategy Tool. With so many camera types and applications on construction sites, planning, tracking, and executing, and monitoring your camera strategy can get complex.
The editable document captures and organizes key information like camera systems used, budget, installation locations, integrations, operating times, vendor comparison, and more.
“For a long time we’ve been focused on 4K for less and a simple workflow. Typically, workflow is how you interact with the camera after it's installed, however, planning a project is also an important part of the workflow. We know this template is nothing revolutionary, but we want to add value wherever we can. We’re going to evolve the tool too, so watch this space!” - Todd McCann, CamDo Solutions CEO.
The goal is to streamline your internal team's decision making process by clearly laying out the various camera technologies. Once your internal team has approved the approach for the project, the document provides the comprehensive information to external stakeholders in an extremely organized format, allowing for speedier review and sign-off. This allows you to quickly get on with the bigger task at hand. It also serves as a quick reference tool once the project is underway.
We invite you to download the Camera Strategy Tool today to better plan your upcoming projects. We’re always open to feedback, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have ideas for ways to improve this tool.
