Bath Spa University has signed a contract with Skanska, one of the world’s leading project development and construction groups for the first phase of a £40 million redevelopment plan for its Newton Park Campus.The build will provide state-of-the-art teaching facilities, a technology-enabled study space and a social learning space. The development has been designed in consultation with English Heritage, who support and endorse the plans. It meets the highest environmental standards and will blend in with the existing University buildings.
Bath Spa University wanted students to be able to see in real-time the second phase of the build as it was happening. NW Systems Group’s expertise was called upon and a solution was created that best met their needs.

Our streaming video webcam hosting service, Streamdays, places two new markers on the map at the Black Sea and Lake Tahoe.
The Bulgarian resort of Lozenets sits on the Black Sea coast, dubbed the ‘Bulgarian Riviera’. Stretching from the Romanian Black Sea in the north to European Turkey in the South. It is a popular tourist destination attracting visitors predominantly in the summer season.
Similarly, Lake Tahoe on the California-Nevada border is a major American tourist attraction, both in the summer and winter months. The world’s most beautiful freshwater alpine lake is synonymous with natural beauty and boasts 72 miles of coastline.
With the use of our IP camera hosting service Streamdays, online visitors can enjoy the breathtaking live footage of these spectacular destinations. Even if you are not lucky enough to visit these places, viewing them live on these streaming webcams will make you feel like you’re actually there.
We utilised the system hardware that both customers already had in place; the Sony SNC-CH120 used by South Tahoe Standup Paddle in Lake Tahoe with HD 720p to gain highly detailed images. Whilst the Axis M1114 used by the Lozenets Black Sea tourist website provides high-quality images and is ideal for overviewing a wide scene. These web cameras provide both our new customers with a vital internet marketing tool to drive more backlinks to their websites, with an aim to increase tourist visitor numbers to the area.
Take a look at these views over the Black Sea and Lake Tahoe, all powered by Streamdays.
