Welcome the W. E. B. Du Bois Library Falcon Cam. Peregrine falcons have successfully nested on the roof of the Du Bois Library at UMass Amherst since 2003. We are pleased to provide this live stream thanks to a collaboration among the UMass Amherst Office of the Vice Chancellor Research & Engagement; UMass Amherst Physical Plant Division; UMass Amherst Information Technology (IT); Library Technology Systems; and the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife). For the latest tweets from the falcons, follow them on Twitter @DuBoisFalcons.
AXIS Q6055-E is an advanced PTZ dome that gives you both sweeping overviews and superb zoomed-in detail. Designed for demanding outdoor conditions, it’s ideal for surveillance at airports, train stations, arenas, and any city-surveillance scenario – anywhere you need fast and precise, round-the-clock pan/tilt/zoom operation. AXIS Q6055-E features 32x optical zoom, which in combination with HDTV 1080p resolution provides superb zoomed-in views of people and objects of interest. For instance, you’ll be able to read the license plate on a car from some 300 meters (984 ft.) away.
