WRAL-TV launches HD weather

High definition broadcasting pioneer WRAL in Raleigh-Durham, NC, is the first television station in the country to implement a High Definition Weather Center with the early April debut of its Baron Services VIPIR HD weather system.

Baron Services VIPIR HD has higher resolution with 16x9 modes that allow WRAL to take full advantage of the digital signal within the station’s weathercast. Using 1080i resolution, the system’s graphics and content can take viewers to the center of the storm. A wider screen gives WRAL’s viewers and meteorologists a bigger, better picture of the weather.

VIPIR HD is a dual-head solution with one screen used for the graphic user interface and the other used to display weather information. It provides simple customization and set up for multiple profiles for each member of a station’s weather team.
