CUSTOM WEBCAM CAPTURES LILY THE BEAR GIVING BIRTH

Murrysville, PA, January 22, 2010 – PixController, Inc., a Murrysville company that specializes in motion-activated, digital, video, cellular and DVR camera systems, announced today that three-year-old Lily the bear gave birth in front of an audience of over 20,000 viewers. She gave birth to what appears to be one cub at approximately 12:38 est. This is the first time in history that a webcam has been placed inside the den of a wild, female, black bear in hopes of capturing a live birth.

PixController was contacted in late October of this year by Doug Hajicek, President and Producer, Whitewolf Entertainment with the details of this project that he was working on in conjunction with the North American Bear Centre in Ely, MN. At that time, Hajicek asked if PixController would be interested in sharing their webcam expertise and consider becoming part of this team. Bill Powers, President/CEO, PixController, Inc. was more than up for the challenge. He spent five weeks putting together a custom camera that would stream live video from this remote bear den located in Ely.

PixController has had its own existing webcam of western Pennsylvania woods streaming through WildEarth.tv for about a year with great success. Since Powers was very comfortable with their already established relationship, he asked WildEarth to be a part of the project with him. 

The bear den camera went live on January 10, 2008. And thanks to everyone’s efforts, news of “Lily the Black Bear” spread quickly. Lily now has her own facebook page with over 51,000 fans – and growing daily.

“This is the most amazing thing I have ever been involved with,” says Powers. “When I first heard about the project, I knew it would be ground breaking, but I never could have predicted this. There are literally people all over the world who have been following Lily for weeks now – people who have fallen in love with this bear – and they are all experiencing together. It’s incredible.”

The next step is to add an additional camera outside of the den. This will be another system custom designed by PixController. This second camera will be full color and will allow us all to follow Lily and her cub as it grows and starts to explore the world.

PixController, Inc is a dynamic, high-technology company that designs and manufactures state-of-the-art covert remote surveillance systems, motion-activated wildlife/scouting cameras, and wireless-triggered cellular and DVR camera systems. Founder and CEO, Bill Powers started the company in 1999, in the suburban Pittsburgh location of Murrysville, PA. To learn more about PixController, Inc., visit www.pixcontroller.com.
