Leveraging Viz Flowics for Real-Time Election Coverage – GB News  

When the UK election was unexpectedly announced for 4 July, GB News had to rapidly adapt to produce its very first general elections coverage in 6 weeks, with very little elections production infrastructure in place. This challenge was met head-on through a strategic partnership with As If Pictures and the powerful graphics creation and playout capabilities of Viz Flowics. 

As if Pictures created the graphics templates to seamlessly integrate real-time elections data from its Votify platform into the Viz Flowics graphics. This collaboration enabled the creation of dynamic and accurate graphics, ensuring that election data was presented in an engaging and timely manner. 

Viz Flowics’ HTML5-based graphics proved to be an ideal solution, allowing for quick development and deployment. The result was a robust and flexible system that handled the complexities of live election coverage with ease.  Additionally, GB News built a touchscreen using the Viz Flowics Graphics Events functionality, to complement its graphics and ticker displays.  

This innovative approach not only met the immediate demands of the channel’s UK election needs but also set a new standard for how real-time data and advanced graphics can be effectively and in record time combined to enhance election coverage. 


Viz Flowics’ and As if Pictures delivered for GB News innovative and flexible data-driven election graphics solution rapidly and successfully, critical for the success of our coverage, says Stephen Willmott, Head of Operations and Technology

Broadcasting a complex production in six weeks – ITN

With notification of the UK General Election in June, ITN had six weeks to prepare for its ‘Election 2024 Live: The Results’ broadcast hosted by Tom Bradby – 12-hour production spanning two presenter studios, two galleries to power overnight coverage, and a third gallery to produce a ‘world feed’ for the network’s international clients. Central to the production is ITN’s Viz Virtual Studio set up, enabling the broadcast of the elections evening news broadcast promptly followed by a reimagined, VR-powered election special a mere hour later, with immersive graphics.

The 2024 UK General Election has been a race to Number 10 like no other. With the hotly anticipated exit poll one of the Election’s most-watched moments, Sky News leveraged an immersive, to-scale augmented reality Downing Street to bring it to life.

With powerful graphics provided by Viz Engine, the broadcaster is unlocking new capabilities with its existing Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football studio, repurposing it to help tell the story of election night on 4th July. Sky News is the first of many broadcasters utilizing the benefits of flexible studio technologies, all of which are enabling existing spaces to be repurposed. Coupled with its Viz One News MAM to capture and edit incoming feeds from all around the country, utilizing Vizrt tech helps Sky deliver more stories better told.

South Korea’s TBC optimizes election news production with Viz Flowics

With the challenge of creating a whole host of elections-based graphics in three weeks, alongside a need to implement a cost-effective and efficient graphics solution, Taegu Broadcasting Corporation (TBC) utilized Viz Flowics HTML5 graphics to create a comprehensive election graphics library to spearhead the South Korea General Elections coverage.

With data from the elections commission fed into Google Sheets, TBC used Viz Flowics template capabilities to seamlessly lift these numbers to inform a range of engaging graphics – all without the need for any coding or advanced design experience.


Previously, we relied on a graphics company for our election graphics packages. However, with Viz Flowics, our team has full control. We were able to create graphics without any coding or advanced design experience, and everything was done in-house, within our very tight timeframe. And we saved USD 30,000 by designing all our elections graphics in-house, shares Hangsuk Kim, Technical Director at TBC
