OwlBox is a long term and short term time-lapse system that takes photos at regular intervals and uploads those photos to a custom Web App over a 3G network. OwlBox is ideal for time-lapse and monitoring of construction, mining, events, landscaping, and any activity that may require a historical record.

OwlBox is connected via 3G, stands alone with Solar Power, fights natures fury with an IP66 rating, and is simple in its design. In the end, your project is documented for history.

24 Mega-Pixel DSLR Quality

We use Nikkon DSLR cameras in each box to capture every image at its highest resolution. This allows broader use of your images to Marketing materials, and zooming in on those important details.

3G Connectivity

Your photos are sent back to our servers via 3G connection (with LTE coming soon). That connection allows us to get photos to your Web App right away, check status, and change settings remotely.

Solar Powered

We wouldn't be a forward thinking company without powering our units with renewable energy. Solar panels, and a back up battery offer a steady stream of power with no A/C tie-ins.

Weather Proof IP-66

From Canadian winters to Australian summers, OwlBox can match what Mother Nature has in store. One day in 2014, the coldest temperature on earth was -49┬░C in Peace River, AB. OwlBox kept clicking away.

Custom Web App

No matter where you are, OwlBox provides each client with a custom web application to view your photos at any time, any where, on whatever device you have. Check on your site, progress, and more.

Wicked Service

We pride ourselves on providing above and beyond service. We use a top of the line production suite with a creative twist, utilizing the power of Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro.

Monthly Update Video

Each month we'll fire over a monthly update video of your project so you can begin to see the magic of your construction happen. Use it for presentations, stakeholder engagement, or pure pleasure.

Final Time-Lapse Movie

It's all done. Years of planning finally come to an end. This is where we shine as we produce a creative, beautiful, and engaging time-lapse video with music, titles, zooms, and pans. A thing of beauty.

Site Photography

We'd be remiss if we didn't offer professional construction site photography by our experienced photographer. Certified to be on any site imaginable, he is creative, skilled, and ensures the best shots.

The Quality Difference - It's All About the Pixels

  • HD vs. Quality

    HD is a funny term, because essentially it means absolutely nothing except a standard size. What really makes some "HD" is the high definition of that video, and that comes down to things like mega-pixels, dynamic range, lens quality, sensor quality, and more. OwlBox uses DSLR cameras, so we are at the top end of the quality bracket - no curved, grainy, low-fi images with OwlBox. Our images are clear, clean, huge resolution, and the definition of HD.

  • Skilled & Creative Editing

    Because our background is film and video, we understand that your time-lapse movie should be as awesome as possible. We don't simply put the images in a timeline and press play - we color correct and edit the image first, apply certain filters that highlight the construction, and export that video with the utmost quality settings. Heck, we even offer 4K time-lapse.

  • Enhance with MEDIAPOP

    Alright, perhaps it's a shameless plug, but our parent company is pretty stellar at video production. Time-Lapse tells a part of the story, but what about the rest of the story? Augment it with video. MEDIAPOP's tag line is; "Storytellers in a world of stories", so let OwlBox and MEDIAPOP together, tell your story.

Here's How it Goes

Plan, Research, Install

With your collaboration, we'll pick the best spot to install the OwlBox unit and use a variety of methods to mount it from poles to bases.

Set it & Forget It

We'll configure the camera to take photos at a certain interval, between a certain time of day, and let the unit do its thing. Sit back and enjoy.

Show Time

When the project is complete, we'll begin editing the final time-lapse movie, and collect the camera from the site. Whizz, bang, boom, you'll have an awesome time-lapse to show the world.
