Live weather data

Viz Weather is a template-based solution that allows the integration of live weather data into pre-defined graphic templates. Data comes from many sources including the National Weather Service, WDT, StormGeo, and Custom Weather. A turn-key integrated data service is available for any data provider or combination of data providers so that our customers get the best possible forecast.

Weather data is fetched live in an automated process, ensuring the data is always up to date before going to air. Automatic alerts from the National Weather Service are sent directly to air with the Viz Weather integration to Viz Ticker.

The combination of Viz Weather and WOD results in a flexible, online user-selectable weather feed for point forecasts, grid animation data, satellite data, observations and more. The area chosen for the forecast is covered by a global on-demand service, allowing the user to change the area of interest and the 3D animations within seconds. The WOD service allows to go on-air with locally updated weather information anywhere and anytime. This particularly important in time-critical weather conditions such as floodings, hurricanes, sand storms or wildfires.

Sand and dust storms appear on regular basis in regions with dry conditions and scarce vegetation with low ability to bind the soil. Viz Weather can visualize forecasts for these storms with maps and point data as well as provide a risk index. This gives you an excellent tool to show your viewers maps over their region where the potential of the storms are high, medium or low.

Advanced visualization

Viz Weather supports real-time weather presentations either through point-based symbols or as high-resolution 3D animations. Weather data, such as temperature, wind speed and direction, particles, hurricane tracks, weather symbols, 3D maps, and radar maps are displayed automatically with corresponding graphic elements in real-time, using the pre-made templates.

Realistic weather presentation

Viz Weather supports real-time weather presentation either through point-based symbols or as high-resolution 3D animations.

The unique Particle Generator functionality allows the creation of a visually accurate representation of the forecasted weather development: The shape and movement of clouds can be visualized in 3D and broadcast showing the true speed of the various cloud layers.

Weather data, such as temperature, wind speed and direction, weather symbols, 3D maps, and radar maps are displayed automatically with corresponding graphic elements in real-time, using the pre-made templates.

Severe weather alerts

The Vizrt Weather Alerts solution is the only next generation, cost-effective alerts solution on the market. The solution allows broadcasters to manage and control the displaying of watches and warnings, and overlay satellite and radar images. It creates two-way communication between the broadcasters and the viewers by integrating social media, all from a single intuitive user interface with no monthly data fees unless required from a third-party data provider. The solution is available as both a one-box solution or in an integrated workflow with existing Vizrt systems

Template-based workflow

Templates are used to generate a weather graphics skeleton. Data and weather-related inputs can be edited by the meteorologist to ensure a coherent and up-to-date show. Integration with Viz One allows the meteorologist to store and access complex weather presentations easily.
