Rockingham County HD Video Stream, “RockingCam,” Now Live
Rockingham County, NC (August 17, 2015)—Rockingham County has a new tool for showcasing the beauty of its rural landscape. A live, High Definition (HD) video stream web cam is now available at www.RCR24.com. The “RockingCam” is a web camera that is placed on Mayo Mountain, the county’s highest point, and is a joint project between WLOE/WMYN RockinghamCountyRadio and the Rockingham County Tourism Development Authority (TDA).
The project was funded by a $25,000 grant received from the Rockingham County Community Foundation as part of the Duke Energy Dan River Basin Fund. The Rockingham County Community Foundation is an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation.
RockingCam live stream is now available anytime and anywhere. It provides real-time footage of the views from the top of Mayo Mountain in the rolling hills surrounding the Mayodan area.
“This project was a natural fit for the TDA because it gives us another tool for promoting the beauty of Rockingham County. RockinghamCountyRadio is the perfect partner for this because of the station’s location on Mayo Mountain and their capability to manage the web cam and broadcast the live stream,” said Robin Yount, tourism manager. “This is going to be a wonderful way to showcase our landscape, especially in the fall when the colors are so vibrant.”
“RockingCam is an exciting one-of-a-kind project. Now, in addition to streaming all of our local, niche programming worldwide, we have the unique opportunity of sharing our view with everyone...changing seasons, weather, beautiful sunsets. I’m grateful to the many people who made it happen,” said Mike Moore, General Manager of WLOE/WMYN RockinghamCountyRadio.
“The web cam provides a nice little window into our world. We greatly appreciate the Rockingham County Community Foundation and Duke Energy for funding this project for us. I hope that people will visit it often to see how our landscape changes throughout the seasons,” said Texie Needham, chair of the TDA Board.
