As surely as the famed Capistrano Swallows, who every year and without fail, wing their way back to the most famous mission in California, those of us in the broadcast industry will wing our way back to IBC and the RAI Amsterdam.
A challenge for broadcasters in today's competitive media landscape is that they have to do more with less. UK-based ITN is one of the world's leading news and multimedia content companies. They needed a solution that would enable their production department to create programs in-house without having to invest in technically trained personnel.
Today, I am going to bring to everyone’s attention – again – the risks of lightning strikes and the potentially fatal consequences of not heeding the warnings and forecasts. We’re writing 2016, and although technology exists that may help predict the movement and formation of severe storms, we – humans – are FAR from immune to the dangers of lightning strikes. In fact, lightning strikes are just as deadly today as they were 10, 100 or 300 years ago.
Advanced news graphics, as well as portable device and gaming graphics, have been increasingly focused on Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). While this is certainly very important, Integrated Reality is likely more important to the operational stability, effective management, and economical feasibility of new investments in the graphics workflow.
Integrated Reality means making sure that all elements in the newsroom workflow communicate with each other and are integrated to leverage shared content, distribution control and consistent operation. This must include weather forecast pages, updated radar, satellite and current observation graphics, as well as breaking news-related geoscience content production.
Over the past year, ChyronHego has been laying the groundwork to evolve beyond our status as the world’s leader in broadcast graphics, to something even bigger.
Data is everywhere today. We’re nearly drowning in it. It literally surrounds us both at our workplaces and in our personal lives. There is no escape.

We are currently well on our way with both the Northern Atlantic and Pacific Hurricane Seasons. Right now, there are two named tropical storm systems active in the Eastern Pacific: Tropical Storm Frank and Hurricane Georgette.
Here in the United States, election season is squarely upon us. News outlets from the largest networks to the smallest independent stations are buzzing with activity, each planning their coverage to one-up the competition.
In the northern hemisphere, we are now enjoying summer. And although summer and summer holidays are strongly associated with lazy days at the beach or walking through the mountains on sunny days, the typical definition of “summer weather” is not as clear.
Al Jazeera is one of the world’s largest news organizations.
Its daily news and weather bulletins reach 305 million households all across the globe.
Al Jazeera needed a system that could display accurate weather forecasts in a concise and informative manner for viewers. Metacast from ChyronHego, turned out to be the ideal solution.
