Invitation for Bids and / or Sponsorship: From FINE Camara companies!
Needed: Outdoor network cameras generating motion MPEG 4 stream and support Power over Ethernet.
Project: These cameras are to support several bald eagle, osprey, owl and peregrine falcon LIVE NEST CAMS. We also need underwater cameras.
This is to follow last years Live Hornby Island & Sidney Bald Eagle LIVE CAMS that caught the world by storm.. Our WEB site became a bit of a phenomena with over --- 500,000,000 hits. This year we have now initiated a Non-profit Foundation through which the projects will be sponsored. We have also now initiated the first of a series of books & booklets to assist teachers and of course the general public in learning more about these incredible creatures whose lives we can now examine in more minute detail.
Needed: A sponsor to provide a series of network cameras to help us bring the birds life cycle to the public. We would love a high tech sponsor who will work with us as we work down this exciting educational path of bringing the wild into the home and school very directly and intimately. The camera needs are initially as follows:
-- A) we prefer to double-camera each nest for safety and backup purposes as generally we have only the initial chance to place the cameras in position during the non-nesting season.
-- B) each nest should have:
-- -- (i). 2.5 or 3.5mm fixed lens camera. No PTZ necessary
-- -- (ii) 3 - 5++ m Pan / Tilt / Zoom
-- C) Total Cameras needed for:
-- 3 Eagle nests:
-- 1 Osprey nest
-- 2 Owls * (low light / Infrared) fixed focus only
-- 2 Peregrine falcon nests -- -- -- Total Cameras Needed: 8 fixed focus + 6 PTZ's
Offered to Sponsor:
-- Incredibly good PR on our WEB site including hot to your site.
-- Our endorsement of your product.
