Polygon Labs Adds Functionality For Ipsum Weather Data Management

Polygon Labs has added search and browse of weather locations directly from the Ipsum Weather web page. The platform takes advantage of the Vizrt live production ecosystem from the newsroom to the control room.

Ipsum Weather is Polygon Labs’ weather data feed aggregation and visualization platform, which aggregates data from weather service providers, including point data weather conditions, forecasts, isobars, satellite and radar imagery.

It is said to provide a simple, efficient and highly scalable interface for producers and journalists to ingest, manage and curate these feeds from any browser at any location.

The new search and browse functionality greatly expands the amount and frequency of conditions and forecast weather point data, adds historical data access and provides improved integration to satellite and model data. It also structures Viz Weather scenes and plugins to seamlessly work with Viz Trio and other Vizrt graphic playout control interfaces.

Polygon Labs has also announced that Ipsum Weather is now available as a turn-key annual subscription service that includes the adaptation of customer weather graphics, data service integrations and support.

David Jorba, Polygon Labs’ Chief Strategy & Business Development Officer adds, “We’ve taken suggestions from broadcasters and added new features to make Ipsum Weather a leading centralized web-based weather solution. This sophisticated new functionality includes full integration with weather data providers, conversion of Viz Weather graphic scenes to output on any Viz Engine, which can then be previewed using any Vizrt control playout tool, as well as training and technical support. We’re delighted that customers including Altice USA, APTN and Chek TV use Ipsum Weather every day for weather content and alerts in their master control tickers."
