Accurate local weather data

Alerts data comes from many sources and is customized for each broadcaster. The Vizrt Weather Alerts solution is preconfigured to use National Weather Service (U.S.) data and can easily be customized to display content for a specific region of interest. The solution is easily customizable to display data for most weather providers and is enhanced with the use of region specific satellite and radar imagery.

Automated weather broadcasts

When severe weather strikes, the Vizrt Weathers Alerts solution can be configured to automatically place alerts on air, updating live as the situation changes. Animated maps of the affected region are updated and displayed in real-time with user configurable rules. Life-threatening events can be given priority to break in to broadcasts while less dangerous weather events can be triggered at specific timed intervals.

Single-box solution

The Vizrt Weather Alerts single-box solution is designed for broadcasters who are in need of a turnkey weather system for displaying severe weather alerts. It includes a customizable set of pre-designed graphics that can display content in HD and 4K, as part of a live ticker with the built-in Viz Ticker system, or on an interactive display.

Integrated workflow

The Vizrt Weather Alerts solution is also available as part of an integrated workflow for broadcasters that already have in place Vizrt production tools. The Vizrt Weather Alerts data is available for the journalists as part of Viz Pilot templates in their native newsroom control system (NRCS) and can be displayed live on-air with Viz Pilot or the Viz Trio character generator.
