AccuWeather recently announced the introduction of the Weathershow Creator and Display System, which will enable meteorologists to significantly upgrade the effectiveness of their weather presentations and help local stations deliver a superior weather broadcast with motion, interactivity and unique capabilities.
Weathershow Creator stands alone as the latest must-have system for local TV stations, with all the data needed to produce a sophisticated and highly rated weather show quickly and easily. Weathershow Creator is a major advancement in weathercast technology and was recently on display for live demonstrations at this year’s NAB show.
The display system is the only all-in-one interactive weather system that includes all the information a meteorologist needs to create a complete weather presentation, including advanced radar, satellite imagery, data and on-air graphics that are automatically updated with up-to-the-second severe weather information, so when stations are on the air, they show the latest data, often ahead of the competition. Weathershow Creator display system can stand alone or complement existing weather systems, delivering greater interactivity and more movement and motion than is available with other systems.
While engaging the viewer through transitions and the dynamic nature of the presentation, this display system allows multiple scenes to be displayed simultaneously, giving meteorologists the ability to easily pivot between them and adjust their on-air weather segment quickly when actual conditions change with up-to-the-second, real-time updates from a single touch to the screen.
Weathershow Creator’s unique capabilities include six live HD video inputs and dozens of video feeds and the highest level of street labelling, providing the ability to zoom into a neighbourhood with greater localisation, detailed mapping magnifying the level of local detail for a highly personalised viewing experience as well as the most sophisticated and advanced telestration tools to give broadcasters the control and ability to highlight what is on screen.
“We are thrilled to showcase this advanced dynamic weather show and display system, Weathershow Creator, along with our highly popular StoryTeller+, at NAB, and we invite stations to come by and experience these tools, so we can show them all the unique capabilities our solutions offer for a better weather show,” said Keith Ackers, Senior Account Executive of TV Systems and Partnerships. “These superior tools will surely elevate every weather show performance.”
Stations do not have to participate in the AccuWeather Brand and Forecast Partnership, a market-by-market arrangement for exclusive use of the superior AccuWeather forecast and powerful AccuWeather brand, to purchase Weathershow Creator. However, AccuWeather is offering additional exclusive capabilities for those stations who do or choose to participate in the partnership.
