Earth TV is a German satellite television network, which airs live broadcasts from its camera network around the world. Cameras are located in well-known cities as well as lesser known locations. EarthTV cameras usually feature beaches, mountains, seaside resorts, or skylines of major cities. They now have over 70 cameras and air the so-called World Live program, featuring 7 locations in 90 seconds, which is shown in 200 countries, reaching more than 2 billion viewers daily.
The cameras for live streaming are fully remote-controlled from the broadcast center in Munich. The programme featuring cities and landscapes is transmitted from the headquarters in Munich and from there they are sent to worldwide partners under the name World Live and similar formats such as Prayer Times and The Weather Today, claiming to reach 2 billion viewers in 200 countries, available in 10 languages and broadcast across 40 TV stations.
Earth television network GmbH (earthTV), a company of Telcast Media Group (founded in 1985), produces, processes, manages and distributes broadcast quality video content from destinations around the world for use on the internet, mobile phones, info-screens and television.
At the beginning of the millennium earthTV started to set up a network of fully remote-controlled TV cameras with motion control heads and zoom lenses, delivering live video feeds in broadcast quality, day and night, since earthTV cameras work well in low-light conditions. The unique technology and hardware of earthTV equipment is the exclusive property of earthTV protected by several international patents. EarthTV started producing programs for international Television in 2002 from its network of about 70 cameras on five continents. Currently earthTV’s programs are broadcasted on approximately 40 international TV channels worldwide. In 2009, earthTV launched its video-player, which features on a growing number of mainly weather and news-related websites.
Since its launch in 2008, www.earthTV.com has become one of the more relevant live-video websites for travel and weather internationally. In 2009, the BBC selected earthTV.com as one of the best websites: „The quality of the earthTV feeds is exceptional“.
