Orad Hi-Tec Systems and WeatherOne have agreed to develop an HD/SD virtual set system dedicated for weather segments. This solution will be based on integrating WeatherOne’s Borealis weather graphics system and Orad’s virtual set solutions. Together the products will be used to create a new way to visualize real-time weather data, highly accurate forecast data and up-to-the-minute severe weather updates.
WeatherOne’s Metacast Borealis system will be ported to run on Orad’s next-generation HDVG rendering platform. Borealis’ all-in-one system integrates a real-time data ingest processor and a graphics production and presentation system. It creates dynamic, fast, accurate and attractive weather graphics displays on TV, Internet and on mobile devices.
