To simplify data-driven weather visualisation from end-to-end, the newly introduced Chyron Weather 2.0 platform provides visually rich map-based graphics, custom forecast elements, dynamic global analysis, and realistic 3D panoramas.
It also offers new features such as a dark look user interface, integration with Chyron’s CAMIO newsroom graphics management system, secure data retrieval, and support for the latest Windows versions.
Michael Harter, Weather Product Manager at Chyron, said, “Chyron Weather 2.0 provides a complete, easy-to-use tool set to tell the weather story. Specialised tools support every aspect of setting up data flows and connectivity, graphic design, on-air presentation, real-time playout, and render management.
“Smart custom created elements enable the user to focus on the weather programme with maximum flexibility and efficiency while still covering the basics. Fully data-driven high-end weather graphics ensure that the latest forecast can get to air in an instant. With intuitive interfaces, even new users can start building engaging weather presentations in no time.”
Chyron Weather 2.0 is a data-provider-agnostic platform that facilitates the creation of rich weather visualisations from any stack of public meteorological data sources or private weather data providers.
Accessible design tools make it easy to customise the look of weather visualisations or create dynamic custom forecast graphics and charts based on select data. With a central hub for managing real-time playout and rapid rendering across multiple servers, Chyron Weather delivers content across on-air, web, and social media channels through simple automated workflows.
