Live Cameras and Webcams
The terms "livecam" and "webcam" are somewhat loosely defined and often
used interchangeably. We define a "webcam" as any camera whose image
information is uploaded (generally via FTP) to an internet site. A "livecam"
denotes a webcam whose image information is uploaded in short intervals
(generally 5 seconds to 30 minutes) or on a continuous basis.
Armchair World's Artcam
We have a rather unique webcam that uploads images of an evolving water
study. Since Armchair World makes water fountains, it seemed to be an
appropriate application of the technology.
The livecam gives us a unique way to experience 'snapshots' of various
locations around the world at essentially the same time. Think of how
astounding this would have been just 25 years ago, how far we've come and how
much we take for granted.
