CONTEXTUAL WEATHER REPORTING

Weather can dramatically impact a breaking news story. However, the complexities of adding real-time, high-quality and high-value weather graphics to the newsroom work ow can be a significant obstacle to producers and journalists. CAMIO Universe with Metacast integration gives viewers a deeper understanding of how local weather affects a live breaking news story

Through CAMIO Universe’s distributed asset and intuitive template-based work ow, your station’s meteorologist creates Metacast weather graphics that are fulfilled from within the Newsroom Computer System.

Producers can now use radar, satellite or forecast data in Metacast to show viewers real-time weather conditions at the scene of a major accident, or how the local weather forecast is developing up to and through a big outdoor sports game. This is especially useful for those times when a meteorologist is not on duty.

ACCELERATE NEWSROOM PRODUCTIVITY

With ChyronHego’s CAMIO graphic asset management solution acting as your newsroom control center, the gap is narrowed between complex technology and the journalists who are doing the storytelling. Adding sophisticated weather graphics to your newscast is just as easy as creating a lower third.

By marrying the meteorologist’s weather expertise with CAMIO Universe’s streamlined template- based workflow, operating expenses are reduced and producers and other content creators have unprecedented control over the various elements that make up today’s multi-faceted news stories.

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.
