The San Francisco Board Sailing Association (SFBA), along with generous sponsors, has supported the Crissy Field Web Cam at East Beach for over twenty years. Maintenance and housing of the camera has been the result of a positive partnership with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. This camera is a valuable tool to sailors, law enforcement, the Coast Guard, and other federal agencies, in addition to daily water users who check it many times a day!
The time has come for a complete upgrade of hardware and software. This will result in a huge increase in performance, usability, and reliability.
The SFBA has identified a reliable vendor who has been approved by the Parks Conservancy to assist with the new install. The $4120 cost for this upgrade will include the camera itself, updated software, and installation costs:
$2500: New camera -- the Axis Q6055 (HD 1080p and 32Xs zoom) PTZ camera
$1500: Software and installation costs
$ 120: fundraiser expense
