Click READ MORE to view our VIDEO! This has been a busy construction season for our ProgressWEBCAM Systems. Especially for our T-M-S small-footprint Trailer Units, which make for prompt deployment to construction sites with solar power, wireless broadband, and an easy to position (and reposition) trailer with a 20-30 foot mast for the camera. As you can see, these units are light weight and easy to transport. Set up is just as easy, using either a multi-camera approach, or a pan-tilt-zoom ...

There are a variety of approaches available to our A / E / C [architecture / engineering ... Read More about CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS to FINISHED

A major online presence is not necessary for many businesses, but as you may already have suspected ... "absence from the web is conspicuous"! Time for P-Tn to announce a part of our service line-up that we've been handling 'on the side' when clients occasionally approach us to request some assistance with their web site. We have a team of professionals on staff and on call than just might be of help. TLC [tender-loving-care] may be all that's lacking. A web site is not intended to run on ...

We have provided limited services in this arena for a number of years, as well as documentation of other sites and situations for legal records and court presentations. The value of a “third party professional photographer” capturing and providing photographs ... Read More about THIRD PARTY PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

And P-Tn walks A LOT OF MILES to protect our clients! We look for, and record in photos and/or video, existing damage near construction sites. For ... Read More about WE FIND THE (existing) DAMAGE!

No, we don’t do any baking, but we DO get hands-on with what we do. That ranges from taking our photographs, and recording our own videos, to performing our own computer processing of those images, to video editing, to flying our drones, and … sometimes, like this photo shows … building our own hardware components, repairing our small fleet of ProgressWEBCAM trailers, and preparing for custom installations of those systems on our clients’ building sites. Once we build it or create, we have a ... Read More about WE BAKE OUR OWN BREAD
