Bannister Lake Releases Chameleon V10 Real-Time Data Aggregation & Graphics Management Solution

Bannister Lake’s data aggregation and graphics management solution,Chameleon, is introducing dramatic new enhancements with a strong focus on election data. ​Within its election module, Chameleon Version 10 improves how election data is ingested and managed.

Bannister Lake's new release expands the ability to enter manual election results where data feeds may not be available. This is particularly useful in less populated districts or in jurisdictions where it is not practical to organise a real-time results feed. 

The new functionality also provides an important fail safe in situations where a data feed may have stopped working. Additionally, the solution dramatically improves the management of referendum and proposition results, providing editorial staff with more options for displaying down-ballot data. 

The election module, in particular, also features improved management and filtering for acclaimed candidates.

The new release highlights the solution's ability to feed data to web widgets, while allowing producers to visualise data interactively online or on mobile devices. 

This feature drives new storytelling opportunities not only for elections, but also for news, sports and financial data. The company is also introducing support for automatically sending out tweets based on Chameleon data conditions, enriching live data experiences on social media.

Additionally, the new solution provides improved sponsorship management, allowing users to manage campaign and client data more efficiently. The new and improved sponsor module tracks and connects campaigns to specific sponsors, making as-run logging clearer and better defined.

The new version of the product also includes enhanced security features aligned with NIST guidelines with improved password protection. Chameleon now offers clients an upgraded password strength checker and warns users when they are changing their password to a common password based on a list of the 1,000,000 most used passwords.

Version 10 also boosts the solution's query functionality, its ability to filter custom data, introduces media bins for organising media into containers and additional support for the onboard HTML5 designer tool.
