Vizrt powers election graphics for Bahrain TV
Vizrt has collaborated with Montreal-based systems integrator Astucemedia on an election coverage project with Bahrain TV, the governmental network in Bahrain.
Bahrain’s parliamentary elections for the Chamber of Deputies, or lower house of Parliament, occur every four years. Voter turnout for the first round of elections reached 72 percent with a second run-off election in December.
The companies designed a graphics solution for the network’s Arabic and English channels for both rounds of elections covering five administrative divisions and 40 constituencies within Bahrain. Three weeks before the first election round, Bahrain TV implemented a complete election solution using Vizrt 3D, the user interface and on-air operator. Vizrt also plans to work with Bahrain TV on a business channel in the future.
