Custom Time-Lapsing

Intuitive Interface Makes Customization Easy

While fixed position cameras are always set on the same field of view, TrueLook’s PTZ cameras allow users to set up multiple simultaneous time-lapses running from different points of view. As the TrueLook PTZ cameras can pan a full 360˚ around your jobsites, you can create separate time-lapses of your structure, parking lot, and staging area all from one camera.

Editing and creating new time-lapse videos is easy with the intuitive user interface of the TrueLook application. Users can create an unlimited number of custom time-lapse videos, specifying items such as frames per second, speed, music, removal of night or weekend images, etc.



Travel Back In Time

View Historical Data for Any Project

TrueLook cameras typically take thousands of pictures to create a custom time-lapse video throughout your project, which justifies weather delays, checks subcontractor activity, etc. TrueLook lets you browse your time-lapse images at any date and time. You can effectively travel back in time to any point in your project.

With TrueLook, you have complete photo documentation of your entire project. Never wonder who was on-site or when your materials arrived. We even log historical weather information for your entire project.

Video Content Drives Engagement

Video content dominates the internet, and its popularity with consumers continues is increasing. Smart Marketers know the power of video and use it to drive business growth. More than 80% of businesses use video as a marketing tool.

Video is highly engaging, brings a human touch to your marketing materials, and allows you to build and tell a more complete story than a static photo. A recent study found that marketers who take advantage of video grow revenue 49% faster than those who don’t and using video on a landing page on your website can increase conversions by 80% or more.

Nothing is more powerful for showcasing your firm’s capabilities than watching a construction project as it unfolds. Time-lapse videos capture a project’s progress over time and condense the action into a fast-paced, engaging video. Every 10 seconds of a time-lapse video spans hundreds of individual still images — and they’re fun to watch.

Time-lapse footage can be integrated with marketing outreach to help tell a compelling story about your firm and the quality and scope of your work. For example, a time-lapse video can span the entire project — from breaking ground, to building the superstructure, interior construction activities and all the way to landscaping.
