Flipping homes may be all the rage, but for many news directors the idea of gutting the studio to give it a fresh new look is a pipedream. However, with the use of augmented reality (AR) a newsroom can have a new and polished look that will delight viewers without breaking the budget.
For the television viewer, no production technology has advanced as significantly, and improved the viewing experience more profoundly, than live graphics. Helpful information that once was displayed as simple text and titles has become a whirlwind of motion effects, 3D elements and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) images that bring new life to a news or entertainment show, increase audience retention and boost ratings. We’re seeing new and better graphics with literally every major broadcast, and that’s changing the audience expectation for everything that follows.
