KEY FEATURES

​Global, Regional, Or Local Content Creation.

Whether you are a national broadcaster or a local station, Metacast can be tailored to meet your every need.

A Data Source Agnostic Solution.

Metacast is continuously updated with radar, satellite, model forecast, pinpoint city/location forecasts, and up-to-the minute remote weather station data.

Metacast Is Adaptable To Your Brand.

Metacast can be branded with your network’s or station’s ID, making the weather forecast or news maps a completely integrated part of your graphics fingerprint.

THE SYSTEM

Metacast Is Data-Centric

Metacast features a highly reliable SQL® database, which is continuously updated with radar, satellite, model forecast, pinpoint city/location forecasts, and up-to-the minute remote weather station data.

As a data source agnostic solution, Metacast works equally well for major network broadcasters, integrating data from a national weather center, as it does for a local TV station requiring a “one-stop delivery” data/system/graphics/storyboard solution.

Weather, Plus A Whole Lot More

Metacast also provides interfaces for non-weather related data which facilitate real-time ingest of reports on earthquakes, fires, traffic events, pollen, pollution, volcanic activity and more.

A high-resolution digital elevation model, combined with 150m or 15m standard satellite imagery based terrain, is part of the Metacast installation. News maps and weather graphics content creation, for any location on Earth, is easily facilitated.
