Web cam more popular than ever
The Citadel's web cameras are more popular than ever for people interested in seeing what it going on at Johnson Hagood Stadium and on Summerall Field. As a result, the web camera overlooking the parade field has locked up more frequently this year than in the past.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The problems arise when a large number of people try to view and control the parade field web camera. Viewers have a set time limit in which they can control the angle of the camera before control is passed on to someone else on the site. Sometimes, particularly during Friday afternoon parades, the camera locks up, making viewing impossible. The current camera system, which was installed in 2000, cannot handle the volume of people trying to view it during the parades and still allow for control of the camera.
The Citadel is planning to upgrade the web camera soon and asks that visitors to that site be patient as the work takes place. A more powerful system should make viewing easier.
IMPORTANT: Until the upgrade is complete, the parade field web camera will be locked down approximately one hour before Friday afternoon parades begin. That means that camera angle will remain stationary and viewers will not be able to move it. Controls will be restored when the parade ends. This should curb viewing problems in the interim.
