Camera Operations Tonight!

FYI,

We currently have 6 cameras sharing the same 6-8MB upload capability to the internet.
The cams are:
Pier B
Harbor
Bayfront
Hillside
GLA
Wisconsin Point

Cameras usually take 2MB each.

In order to make the most bandwidth available to the cams that will be viewing the fireworks and Bayfront activities, I will be turning GLA, Bayfront and Wisconsin Point cams off. This will double the available bandwidth to PierB, Harborcam, and Hillside.
 I will also be tilting harborcam up a bit.

The GLA Bayfront and Wisconsin Point cams will be going off shortly after the James R Barker arrived at about 19:00. These cams will be turned on after the fireworks.

Hillside and Pier B will be on manual control for the evening to preserve bandwidth.

All other cams will be operating as normal.

More adjustments may be made on the fly if needed.

Thanks,
Den

  4. Hi I was just watching the James R Barker. It was getting ready to make the turn where they go under the 535 bridge and the Barker did a 360 degree turn. Fascinating to watch. Great captain.

    1. Mainly only the 1000 footers do that 360 and back into their terminal, and I agree, love watching them turn on a dime
