AccuWeather has introduced Local Digital Weather HD, a high-definition digital weather system. The system enables satellite groups, cable companies and television stations to offer HD customers a 24-hour weather channel. It is currently being used by Newsbytes HD as part of VOOM, its DBS service.
Another new product, WeatherHost, allows stations to turn their on-air weather talent into Internet stars. Developed in partnership with Oddcast, this system can be seen at work by visiting www.wrdw.com and clicking on "weather." The animated character seen can be customized to look like a station's weather personality.
