Bannister Lake Makes Data-Driven Graphics Affordable

Bannister Lake Software, developers of the Super Ticker system for data driven graphics, has introduced an affordable new version that can be used with a wide range of output products. Designed to run 24/7, the new BL Super Ticker Flow represents mission-critical enterprise class software required by broadcasters around the world.

The Bannister Lake Super Ticker Flow works with any graphics system. Data is published using the company’s Blade output system and can be accessed by most modern broadcast graphics and integrated channel playout systems as well as web sites and digital signage systems.

The BL Super Ticker Flow includes all the data collection, management, and publishing features of the existing Super Ticker software in a version designed to provide data to any graphics output platform. It’s a multi-channel, multi-user, content management and display control system for the broadcast industry that can support multi-station operation from a single system.


It also supports a broad array of content data types and provides tools to manage and moderate automated feeds and locally entered content. Despite the lower price it still offers most of the key features, including unlimited users and an unlimited number of channels.

Data types include stories, scores, events, weather, financials, social media, closings, traffic etc.

Data types requiring local user generated input benefit from the BL’s recently announced Community system, a cloud-based service for all Super Ticker versions that supports local data collection from schools and community groups.

Another key component of Super Ticker Flow is the Elections Module, which offers a full range of elections data collection and management features. Supporting both U.S. style and parliamentary elections, the system is well suited to elections in most jurisdictions.
