EarthCam Presents Video Postcard Kiosk at Taste of Times Square

Taste of Times Square 2006 Marks 9th Anniversary of EarthCam's Involvement


New York, June 12, 2006 -- EarthCam (, the official Internet camera of Times Square, is partnering with Panasonic to participate in this year's Taste of Times Square. EarthCam will setup and produce its Video Postcard Kiosk allowing individuals a unique opportunity to take megapixel pictures of themselves at the event and email these images to friends and family members. The 2006 event marks the 9th consecutive year EarthCam has been involved with this popular annual outdoor food festival.

The EarthCam Video Postcard Kiosk permits attendees to capture the moment and enjoy it later. Their pictures will appear on a co-branded website and will be archived for later viewing. Visitors, their friends or family members will receive an email containing a personal message and a link that will direct them to view their postcard, presented by Panasonic, at their convenience. The postcard can later be forwarded to relatives, co-workers and friends or simply saved as a memento.

Food aficionados go to the annual Taste of Times Square festival to sample dishes and delights from the heart of New York. From West 46th Street, between Broadway and 9th Ave, to historic Restaurant Row in Times Square, hungry gourmets can relish tastes of the cooking from more than 50 restaurants and swig a variety of beers from more than half a dozen breweries.
