In its version 10, Chameleon’s election module is expanded to improve election data management
Bannister Lake, a provider of video graphic display solutions, has introduced election data-focused enhancements to Chameleon, the company’s data aggregation and graphics management solution. Within its election module, Chameleon version 10 enhances how election data is ingested and managed, and expands the ability to enter manual election results where data feeds may not be available.
In addition, Chameleon version 10 has the ability of improving the management of referendum and proposition results, thus providing editorial staff with more options for displaying down-ballot data. The election module also feature management and filtering for acclaimed candidates.
Furthermore, the new release highlights Chameleon’s ability to feed data to web widgets, allowing producers to visualise data interactively online or on mobile devices. Besides supporting elections applications, the solution can also provide new storytelling opportunities for news, sports and financial data.
Georg Hentsch, president of Bannister Lake, added: “We realised that elections are more than just national events. These new features help ensure that broadcasters covering races in remote locations or in smaller communities can use data on-air more effectively.”
