Hybrid MC renders graphics for France 2’s traffic reports

France 2 has begun using Hybrid MC’s Krypton to power the traffic report feature in its national news bulletins.

Combining animated 2-D and 3-D informational graphics within a virtual set, France 2's Point Route bulletins feature presenters giving detailed real-time analysis of traffic situations and forecasting future driving conditions on roads throughout the country.

The Point Route system automates the conversion of data from the national road network into graphical displays and allows journalists to present an overview of traffic conditions.

Developed jointly with Paris-based graphics specialist Trimaran, the Point Route system uses Hybrid MC's Krypton rendering platform to power both the virtual set and the 3-D graphics display. Trimaran's Point Route software provides the interface and operational front end for France 2's journalists on desktop computers.
