What is a time lapse video?
Time-lapse photography or videography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured is much lower than that used to view the sequence. So, when played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. The main objective of timelapse video is that it makes it possible to view events or changes occurring over a period of hours, days, months or years in a short period. This summarized visual documentary brings subtle changes to the fore which would otherwise have gone unnoticed.
There are many applications of timelapse videos such as in construction, security & surveillance, traffic management, oil & gas, environment monitoring, agriculture & ranching, power plants and many more industries. Here’ we will take a look at how timelapse videos are benefiting maritime industry.
Maritime applications of timelapse video
In maritime industry timelapse videos serve to document and monitor construction of ships, floating-out of ships, dry docking of ships and repairs & painting of ships. Timelapse videos can also be utilized to capture and showcase construction of a bridge over a river or sea, ships passing through canal locks, and even the entire voyage of a ship.
