Black Eagle 2012 Only Days Away: New Camera, Night Vision and Sound
Preparations for "Black Eagle 2012" began even before last year's broadcast ended. There were a great deal of improvements we wanted to make, and hopefully in a few weeks it will all pay off. It's been a very exciting installation that for the first time will bring 24/7 viewing with infrared night vision and sound to this live streaming broadcast. This should allow us to capture every moment as the black eagles once more attempt to bring a new chick into the world.
As far as cam setups go, Black Eagle 2012 is truly an extreme case. Not only did it involve constructing new technology coupled with solar power, the real challenge is that the camera has to be mounted to the face of a cliff! Here's a a pic from the install which, as you can see, involves full mountain climbing gear.
As the official launch approaches stay tuned for more details about the new camera installation, pics, previews and more.
