Earth TV (stylized as earthTV) is a German satellite television network broadcasting live from the worldwide camera network. Cameras are found in lesser-known places as well as well-known cities. EarthTV cameras often include beaches, mountains, seaside resorts, or skylines of large cities. They currently have more than 70 cameras and broadcast the so-called World Live program with 7 locations in 90 seconds, shown in 200 countries and reaching more than 2 billion viewers a day.
For live streaming, the cameras are completely remotely controlled from the broadcast center in Munich. The program, which includes the cities and sights, is transmitted from the headquarters in Munich and from there it is claimed to reach partners worldwide under the name Earth Live and reach 2 billion viewers in 200 countries in similar formats such as Prayer Times and The Weather Today. It broadcasts in 10 languages and 40 TV stations.
Earth Television Network GmbH (earthTV), a subsidiary of Telcast Media Group (founded in 1985), produces, processes, manages and distributes broadcast quality video content from all over the world for use on the Internet, mobile phones, information displays and television. .
At the turn of the millennium, earthTV began building a network of fully remote TV cameras with motion control heads and zoom lenses, and as earthTV cameras work well in low light conditions, they offer broadcast quality live video feeds day and night.
The unique technology and hardware of EarthTV equipment is the exclusive property of earthTV, protected by several international patents. EarthTV began producing programs for international Television in 2002 from its network of approximately 70 cameras on five continents. EarthTV's programs are currently broadcast on approximately 40 international TV channels worldwide. In 2009, EarthTV launched its video player, which is featured on a growing number of weather and news related websites.
Since its launch in 2008, www.earthTV.com has become one of the more suitable live video websites for international travel and weather. In 2009, the BBC named earthTV.com as one of the best websites: "The quality of earthTV broadcasts is outstanding".
