Yes, not everything stays in Vegas. Especially not for the UrtheCast team, which has descended upon Sin City to spread the news about our competition, UrtheView, that’s launching at the AUVSI Unmanned Systems Conference.

Recreating an amazing moment is hard. As any performer will tell you, the toughest part of a stellar performance is the next time you walk onto that stage. The same is true when you begin to make a splash at the start of a week-long conference like SXSW. Read more.

The weekend leading up to SXSW Interactive doles out enough work, prep, and play to last you a month. So, it’s no surprise that by the time Monday rolls around, hitting the ground running requires more than a bit of fortitude.
As anticipated, the UrtheCast team hit its stride today with a huge response to the debut of our interactive platform. Read more.

SXSW is not just about shaking hands, wheelin’ deals, and basking in the spotlight of creative prowess (okay, for some it’s totally about that), it’s also about the celebration of creativity. You might even say it’s the cultural renaissance fair of our modern age. (From digital gurus, to inspiring tech startups, to music, to film… what’s not to love!)
Nowadays, anyone can be a creator-designer-photographer-journalist-curator, merely by way of our digital world. So each year you’ve got to find creative ways to make heads turn — the same is true at SXSW. (Filming Earth from space and delivering it via an open-source, interactive platform is pretty creative, no?)
Now that the UrtheCast cameras are nearing completion and agreements have been solidified with MDA, RSC Energia, and the European Space Agency, we’re looking a little closer to home, directly at our interactive platform. Each year, the cultural significance of a conference like SXSW is heightened, which is why UrtheCast is journeying to the centre of it all, Austin Texas, to unveil Alpha One — the first iteration of our powerful new platform. So, beginning next week, SXSW attendees will be able to see, scroll, tap, pan, and zoom high-definition video footage on the UrtheCast platform.

When Matt and I were first approached about UrtheCast, of course we were skeptical, but we were also very intrigued. That skepticism and curiosity quickly transformed into a deep excitement about the possibilities of the UrtheCast platform, and the ways it could change the way we view our world. Although our minds are overflowing daily with creative ways to use the UrtheCast platform, we wanted to sum up a few of the possibilities that have us especially psyched out of our minds. Read more.

One of the things that we are most excited about are the various apps that will be created for UrtheCast. When you think about it, a camera streaming live HD video of Earth has an endless road of possibilities when it comes to building applications for users.
Here are some of the ideas that have been kicking around the office. Read more.
