After having covered the primaries in August, wTVision has worked, once again, for Bright House Networks (BHN) during the General Election on the 4th of November.
wTVision offered a complete data and graphics coverage using the same project concept used on the primaries.
BHN 24-hour local news channels: News 13 serving the Orlando area, Bay News 9 serving the Tampa Bay area and InfoMás, a regional 24 hour Spanish news channel.
The results of the races were imported, in real-time, from the Associated Press (AP) and there were also a place to input data manually, acting for redundancy and to introduce other races results not made available by AP.
Elections CG was the product behind all the three channels, managing the data, in real-time.
The output of the latest information available was made in three ways: full screen graphics, full screen graphics for touchscreens, used by the studio presenters for full control over the election content and an horizontal ticker.
Over the top complementary services
wTVision Elections CG also fed BHN website with the latest results.
Due to the multi language requirement (English and Spanish), Elections CG, using wTVision Dictionary plugin, guaranteed automatic translation of all content.
On these election projects, Elections CG was on top of the Vizrt workflow integrated with Dalet newsroom system that allowed journalists to monitor live data and build a playlist of election graphics and content.
Mike Gautreau, Sr Director of News commented: “The election software wTVision produced for Bay News 9 was the best we’ve ever used. We produce more in-depth, wall to wall, live, local election night coverage than all the other stations combined in our market so we have to have a software package that is not only reliable but also remarkable. wTVision’s product and technical support was top notch.”
