ABC News manages demanding election graphics workflow with Miranda Xmedia Suite

ABC News delivered its presidential election graphics from its New York City news centers using Miranda Technologies’ Xmedia Suite graphics workflow tools and Vertigo XG graphics processors, the company said last week.

The TV news organization began using the Xmedia Suite graphics tools for its presidential, primary and midterm election graphics in 2002.

This year, ABC News presented its HD and SD viewers with even more sophisticated graphics, including 3-D maps, full-screen election boards and a live double election ticker with staggered results for the presidential, Senate and gubernatorial races.

The network controlled all of these graphics with the Xmedia Suite, using 20 Xplay graphics sequence controllers, which were fully integrated with ABC’s newsroom and automation systems.

ABC’s Times Square and 66th Street sites in New York City were equipped to drive more than 20 HD and SD on-air graphics devices, including 3-D and 2-D graphics processors, video walls and touch-screen control panels for ABC anchors.
