Erdman Video Systems was formed
Developed a computer/video camera based instrument for acquiring and archiving images for various types of engineering projects. Special hardware was developed for pan/tilt/zoom control. Jobs were consulting projects as opposed to product sales. Early systems were DOS based, and later software was upgraded to Windows.
Developed a lower cost, desktop, Windows based video monitoring system. Construction companies caught on to the idea and purchased many systems for their use which helped spur product development for this industry. Sales in Italy for tourism promotion began. These systems used off-the-shelf components and our VM95 software.
Development begins on the ‘Biscuit’ system using single board computers and the companies own support electronics, with the goal to secure new monitoring opportunities by lowering power consumption, increasing reliability, while decreasing product complexity and price. Image delivery methods were enhanced by using custom written Java applets, allowing clients access to all their imagery in the form of time lapse movie/slide shows directly on a webpage. Sales increased from 30-50 systems per year to over 100 systems per year.
Our Biscuit becomes Nano
Miniaturization efforts begin in earnest for the 'Biscuit' system. This brings a number of revisions leading to the 'NanoBiscuit' system which is modularized and capable of fitting in small enclosures. True all-in-one packages were made possible thanks in part to the incorporation of surface mount electronics and 2.5" laptop size hard drives. Sales exploded for the construction, coastal monitoring and time lapse markets. True production quality high definition time lapse creation was made possible by moving away from Olympus cameras and incorporating Canon DSLR cameras and lenses. Our online viewer went through a number of revisions that included an Adobe Flash type, a Microsoft Silverlight type and finally our HTML5 type online image viewer.
2015 and Beyond
We continue strong!
We continue to develop and further miniaturize our Nano product now called the 'NanoTL'. The NanoTL is a the ultimate miniaturized embedded computer for our era. With continued improvement by Canon our product is able to evolve alongside the DSLR market. We are continuing development on our HTML5 online viewer and adding new features every month.
