When you watch a time-lapse video, it can take seconds or minutes to show you an event that took place over hours, days, weeks, months or years.
Here at Rising View we make time-lapse videos by setting up a camera or cameras with certain exposure settings and a timer to manage shooting intervals. This then documents the events which have taken place over the course of a set period.
Useful for Commercial Business
Time lapse videos are often seen on the TV during nature programmes which demonstrate how plants bloom or how a caterpillar emerges to become a butterfly.
However, time-lapse videos are also very useful in commercial business and they are especially useful as a way of documenting construction projects.
Save Money Documenting the Construction
Usually when a construction project is under way, a construction manager is in charge. His or her job is to make sure the work is done on time and within budget. During the course of a construction programme the manager will often have to make a number of costly and time-consuming visits to the site. Having a time-lapse video in place means less visits which save time and money.
Time-lapse videos can help a construction manager in a variety of ways. For example, if a dispute occurs on site or there is a security breach. The time-lapse cameras will have videoed anything which occurred within the frame of the camera, so it acts like a CCTV camera.
View the Video Remotely
The video can be viewed remotely from the construction managers office on a smartphone, computer or laptop and can be shared with other members of the management team. This also means issues can be dealt with immediately by management even if they are all in different locations.
Management can see the results of the work at the end of each day so that should any changes need to be made these can be carried out quickly before any more work is done. For example, if management realise part of a wall is too big it can be reduced quickly before any further work is carried out.
Great Marketing Tool
Once the construction has finished the time-lapse video can be used for advertising, promotional and marketing purposes. It can be uploaded to a website or on social media platforms where it can be viewed by business to business clients or consumers.
Construction business can upload time-lapse videos to their websites to engage potential customers and display how the work is carried out from start to finish. When we mount our cameras on your construction site, we make sure they won’t disturb the building team and that they are as unobtrusive as possible.
