Bexel Partners With Explore.org to Capture High-Quality Nature Footage

Bexel, has joined forces with philanthropic media organization explore.org to stream never-before-seen live video and audio from some of the world’s most remote and exotic locations.

Operated remotely by passionate volunteers, explore.org has created the largest collection of live nature cameras in the world. Twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, and on four continents, explore.org streams extraordinary moments from the wild as they happen, from bald eagles nesting in California's Channel Islands to giant pandas foraging for bamboo in Gengda, Sichuan, China. Bexel has joined with the organization to capture nature scenes from throughout the world.

Home to more than 300 original films, live-recorded and catalogued video, a world-class photo library, and over 3 million user-generated photographs, explore.org draws millions of viewers every month.

After a successful first deployment in northern Manitoba, where Bexel's specialty low-light-optimized camera system captured stunning footage of the aurora borealis at night, Bexel has deployed custom-designed systems at nine other explore.org sites, with another 25 planned for 2017.

Designed to be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world, Bexel's camera systems give explore.org's volunteer remote operators the tools they need to provide viewers with an unprecedented glimpse into the natural world. Given the unique circumstances at each explore.org site, Bexel's custom HD and 4K camera systems ensure that riveting, clear footage will be available in even the most extreme conditions.
