|Time-lapse for scientific
Science has a long history of using time-lapse photography, but
the high costs and technical difficulties previously associated
with recording such image sets have provided substantial barriers
to entry for the general scientific applications. Recent technological
advances including digital photography, miniaturization of cameras,
and falling storage costs are providing scientists with research
opportunities previously unimaginable. Currently, the primary barrier
to entry is the lack of easy-to-use time-lapse equipment. TimeScience
fills this market gap by providing low-cost, user friendly, hardware
and software time-lapse solutions for scientific use.
TimeScience time-lapse products can improve research capabilities
whatever the spatial scale, from monitoring cell growth, to recording
mouse mate-choice experiments to long-term documentation of habitat
restoration projects. If you are interested in incorporating time-lapse
applications into a new or current research program, contact us
for an overview of what is possible. We specialize in developing
solutions to difficult time-lapse problems.
|Time-lapse for conservation,
education and urban planning
Long-term visual records of cityscapes are an essential tool for
urban planners and provide a unique complement to traditional means
such as GIS, for tracking changes in the urban landscape. Unfortunately,
few cities visually document urban change in a consistent manner.
Individually, or assembled into high-resolution time-lapse movies,
these images provide an indispensable record of a city's changing
landscape. TimeScience can help develop a coordinated plan to document
long-term change in your city from multiple viewpoints.
|Time-lapse for home or office
Showcase the view at your home, vacation home, or office. Remember
that amazing thunderstorm last week? Now you can watch it as a movie...
and every other day from now on!
A TimeScience recording and playback system will allow you to record
and play a continous, high resolution video record of any view from
which you have internet access, onto your television, computer monitor
or plasma screen television. Install a camera on the roof of your
vacation home (or use an existing security camera) and capture the
images to wherever you are. Never miss another sunset because you
had to work late or didn't have time to go on vacation. Show your
friends a live and interactive video of view from your new retreat
in the mountains on your television at home or on a wall
screen in your office.
|Time-lapse for museums and
|TimeScience's innovative installations let visitors
experience time on a different scale. In a museum, TimeScience installations
provide visitors with an innovative new way to interact with an exhibit.
In a National Park or tourist attraction, a TimeScience installation
can uniquely showcase the natural beauty of an area.
Imagine visiting the visitor center or lodge in a National Park
where a large screen displays a spectacular photograph. Now imagine
a controller that lets you change the time at which the image was
taken. Sliding smoothly back through time, the controller gives
you access to any historical point in time since the camera was
installed. When you let go, time speeds forward at the speed you
choose, allowing you to see the seasons change and the years pass.
The TimeStreamTM player provides the
user with an immersive video experience of seeing time at another
scale. Accelerate a TimeStream to 500,000 times normal and a year
goes by in a minute. Slow the TimeStream down and zoom in to watch
a single hour or a day.
