CNN Chile uses Vizrt platform to enrich election graphics

CNN Chile selected Santiago-based branding specialist PopUp TV to design and implement its election graphics and to refresh the channel's overall branding. The new graphics were unveiled during CNN Chile's coverage of the Dec. 13 presidential and legislative elections and the presidential run-off Jan. 17.

For election coverage, PopUpTV proposed Vizrt graphic and touch-screen applications for delivery of real-time results. Using the Viz Engine real-time rendering engine, CNN Chile’s screen was updated with real-time information shown within animated graphics. The information was loaded from the official source of results into the system and stored within a database, along with statistical and historical information. Viz Trio CG software provided access to the database and displayed the touch screen with any data the journalist requested in real time.

Using Vizrt’s Viz Artist 3.2 touch-screen application, CNN Chile showed 24 simultaneous video feeds on a 3D carousel that the presenter could roll and zoom to a specific video feed. Each video feed originated from different places throughout Chile. The application allowed CNN Chile to interact with different journalists and candidates in various locations from one single studio.
