Vizrt Graphics Screened On US Election Night

Broadcasters worldwide used Vizrt tools to cover the 2020 election.

An estimated four billion people tuned in to the results of the U.S. presidential election. More than 100 news stations, representing roughly 90 percent of the major broadcasters around the world and media agencies, use Vizrt software to create graphics used during this election. Vizrt says the list included CNN, NBC, Fox, BBC, Al Jazeera, TV 2 Norway, NHK, Al Arabiya, Mediacorp.

On display as the results rolled in were impressive touchscreen video walls, AR that allows for interactive data updates and projections, and cutting-edge maps that take an esoteric voting system and make it readily understandable by all.

“The goal of election night is to draw in viewers by taking vast amounts of data and making it both quickly understandable and engaging in real time,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, co-founder of Vizrt. “It is how our brilliant customers engage their audiences and present on the fly that matters most. In essence, it is how they use Vizrt tools to tell the story as it unfolds that sets them apart from the rest.”
