Singular.live Becomes First Cloud-Based Graphics Platform Used by ITV

Singular.live, the pioneer of revolutionary cloud-based technology for live graphic overlays, today announced another record, as it became the first cloud-based graphics platform to be used by ITV. Singular powered the graphics for ITV Wales’ coverage of the Welsh Assembly elections last May. Live election broadcasts require fast, accurate and up-to-date data. For the 2021 Welsh Assembly elections, ITV Wales used a new Singular feature - Data Streams - which is purpose built for high frequency, high volume and low latency data.

Bannister Lake Introduces Major Enhancements to Its Chameleon Election Module for the 2020 Election Cycle Posted: 05/03/2020
Bannister Lake Introduces Major Enhancements to Its Chameleon Election Module for the 2020 Election Cycle

Bannister Lake announced today that its industry-leading data aggregation and management product, Chameleon, will now include additional election-specific capabilities. The new enhancements will allow broadcasters, station groups, streaming news services, and online media companies to launch election coverage with full editorial, data, and graphics support. Sophisticated election systems have historically been custom built by network news departments and are out of reach for many media companies. Bannister Lake's Chameleon election solution provides any media outlet with the ability to professionally cover elections and ingest automated AP Elections or Decision Desk HQ data or enter results manually.

The new election module features customizable race tracking and filtering functionality, allowing producers to focus on specific races of interest. Editorial teams can use Chameleon to follow races based on star candidates, close results, geography, or other criteria. Producers can also create pre-built collections of races to have them readily available for air. As a web-based system, Chameleon can support an unlimited number of users, allowing producers and reporting teams to have access to results and functionality from anywhere.

Within the election module, producers can quickly create graphic playlists populated with real-time results based on the races they are following and display them immediately. Chameleon also allows production teams to add candidate headshots, customize the UI to zero-in on specific races or groups of races, and switch to manual results should the data feeds be interrupted.
