Gatwick Airport case study

The London Airport has the world's busiest single-use runway.


Time-lapse a year at Gatwick Airport

To deliver a means of capturing and communicating a sense of the constant activity of operations at Gatwick Airport, throughout the year and through all weather conditions.

We developed and installed a time-lapse solution with a 3G feed to our website where images were uploaded for every 24 hours over a whole year. We then created short programmes with selected activity to show the airport's operation in snow, over the Easter weekend (one of the busiest in the year) and at night for wider dissemination by the client.
Have a look at our time-lapse demo page, to see some of the sequences of images taken from this time-lapse view.

Our Client's Response:

“As we are a 24/7 operation, the time-lapse web system allows us to monitor and capture constant airport activity, making it easy to identify, and then share, key stories both internally and externally. With the increasing demand for short-burst clips and audio-visual 'hooks' across social media platforms, we have used Tandem for a number of high impact time-lapse campaigns around aircraft movements and infrastructure projects, helping us to deliver core visual messaging or drive audiences toward additional sources of information. ”
