INFORM & PREPARE YOUR VIEWERS.

THE MOST ADVANCED SEVERE WEATHER NOTIFICATION SYSTEM

Severe weather is one of those rare opportunities to truly differentiate yourself in your market and prove you are a leader. So why use an alerting display that looks just like your competitor?

Our Severe Weather Warning Solution, NewsTicker SevereWx, puts you in full control of design and functionality. You aren’t forced to use a standard look, or a design tool with limited options. You get to create displays from the bottom up, using the most sophisticated design and automation tools available today.

Take charge and lead the market in severe weather notification while putting your brand front and center with NewsTicker SevereWx.

Optimized for duopolies, NewsTicker SevereWx allows you to manage your events centrally, through one interface, but air separately branded and designed displays on each of the channels you program. You don’t need to compromise with one look for all, or deal with managing multiple instances of the same software across each station.

DELIVER CLOSINGS FAST – TO AIR, WEB, AND MOBILE

In addition to our proven Weather Warning Solution, our Closings Solution, NewsTicker Closings ensures consistency and the ability to garner data and get it to air fast. The instant an organization activates, it is ready for air. You don’t have to restart the display or wait for a batch process to transfer it to your server. And, exporting to your website and mobile provider is automatic, fast and tailored to your look.

Deliver First – to air, web, and mobile.

YOUR BRAND, YOUR DESIGN

Break from the “one size fits all” model with different looks depending on the types of active conditions. Display long-fuse events in a more compact manner than short-fuse events where time is of the essence. And, most importantly, create a design that fits your identity to reinforce your brand.

DELIVER FAST

The instant a condition activates, it is ready for air. With our powerful automation controls, you can manage what goes to air automatically and what should be displayed manually. And, exporting to your website and mobile provider is automatic, fast and tailored to your look.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR CONTENT

Using NewsTicker’s web-based interface, your meteorologists have unparalleled control over how the system will react to each condition, including what information it should display and how frequently. During an event, your mets can easily add information to crawls about current observations to maintain FCC compliance.

Reliable, Redundant, Automated Data

AUTOMATED DATA

When big storms hit, stop babysitting your alert system and use NewsTicker’s advanced automation controls to prescribe what airs, what doesn’t, and how often, editable any time and customized by playlist.

TRUSTED CONTENT

Severe weather data is received directly from the National Weather Service via C-Band satellite and direct fiber to the NWS for redundancy, and can be combined with a station’s local satellite feed.

First-to-Air Closings

School closings are very competitive since they are an extension of your station’s weather brand that commands a large audience during the critical early morning news time. There is a drive to be first and most complete.

Even in a world of social media, industry research continues to show that people prefer to get their school closing notifications from watching television.

Any system can take in automated information and display it in a loop. You see that on every station in a market. But, you can’t claim to be the fastest if your system doesn’t get it on air first.

NewsTicker Closings is the fastest way to get an organization from the point of closure to your air, potentially within seconds. Win more viewers with our innovative market-proven display solutions.

SCALED FOR LARGE DATABASES

Take advantage of one of the only truly enterprise-grade closing systems available in America. It is built on Linux and optimized for more than 10,000 organizations, activating themselves automatically online and on the phone.

EASY TO USE

Speed-up training, preparation, and day-of operations using NewsTicker’s intuitive and responsive web-based interface. There are no complicated “right-clicks” or hidden fields requiring extensive training … just a clean user experience.
