Official time-lapse video of the San Francisco 49ers new Levi’s Stadium; from groundbreaking to opening day

The most high-tech stadium required the most advanced webcam technology to document the construction progress from groundbreaking through opening day. Three EarthCam megapixel construction cameras, including the GigapixelCam, archived over 200,000 images during the 29 months of construction. This time-lapse movie was produced by using many of these HD images as well as some of the 1,250 panoramas that were taken by the robotic webcams.

San Francisco 49ers Chief Operating Officer Paraag Marathe said:

The construction of Levi’s Stadium is a historic project for the 49ers and the City of Santa Clara.

Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam added:

It has been more than 50 years since an NFL stadium has been built in the state of California and we wanted to make sure we documented the project from every angle—from groundbreaking through ribbon-cutting. Partnering with EarthCam allows us to preserve this unique period for our fans and for our history.

We can’t think of a better place to launch our first stadium GigapixelCam webcam.
