Ocean Palms Condominium Project Launches
Construction Cam with VisionBurst

Hollywood, FL, October 21, 2003: Current and prospective owners of condominiums in Hollywood Beach's newest development can now view up-to-the-minute construction progress via the Internet.

Scott Roth, Vice President of Ocean Palms LLC, had the idea to install the webcam. "Ocean Palms is pleased to utilize this emerging technology to be able to allow our future residents to watch the construction progess of their new home from any place at any time," said Roth.

Mounted on the roof of the Alexander Condominium, which stands next door to the Ocean Palms site, the camera sends a signal via wireless transmitter to the Ocean Palms office across the street. A new picture is automatically uploaded to the internet every five minutes.

VisionBurst installed the camera, maintains the software, and hosts the image stream, which appears below:

"It is a thrill for us to be involved with Ocean Palms," said Avi Frier, President of VisionBurst, Inc. "As Hollywood continues to attract new development, it gives us great pleasure to service the marketing needs of these ventures.

"This webcam is symbolic of the watchful eye South Florida's business community has had on Hollywood for years," Frier added. "It screams right out at you, 'don't blink-- here we grow again!'"

VisionBurst President Avi Frier (otherwise deathly afraid of heights) poses next to the newly installed webcam.

The wireless transmitter sends a signal from the roof of the neighboring Alexander Condominium to the Ocean Palms sales office across the street, where a new picture is uploaded to the web every five minutes.
