Polygon Labs Debuts Centralized Web-Based Weather Solution

Ipsum Weather follows the recent release of Ipsum 2.0, the company’s data aggregation and visualization platform for broadcast news, sports, weather and branding.

Ipsum Weather is presented as a data aggregation, management and playout scheduling solution for on-air weather and sponsorship graphics. It aggregates and curates weather data (point-data, satellite, radar, isobars, wind conditions, etc.) and alerts from a number of different providers.

For gallery and studio weather graphics, the real-time weather data solution is fully integrated with Viz Trio and Viz Director for Viz Engine playout control, as well as newsroom templates in Viz Pilot. It can also provide database management and automated playlist control of master control weather graphics played out on Unreal Engine or Viz Engine.

“While significantly streamlining operations, Ipsum Weather generates customer value with simplified weather data and content aggregation integrating with Vizrt’s playout tools and with the Viz Engine and Unreal Engine outputs to provide the most engaging weather graphics,” explains David Jorba, Polygon Labs’ Business Development Officer. “The software supports full screen, ticker, augmented and virtual studio weather graphics and is fully integrated with weather data providers like WSI, Weather Bell, or NOAA, as well as data feeds coming from local providers, AP, Reuters, Twitter, Facebook, XML, JSON and RSS sources.”
