For the 25th Aniversary of TVB 85, a 24/7 finance news channel in Hong Kong, the management wanted to upgrade their Vizrt systems as well provide their viewers a fresh and more dynamic experience.
The project included implementing and launching a new breaking news and finance ticker. The ticker was fed with live data from Reuters as well as automatically read a breaking news feed created my the journalists.
In order to provide a more dynamic experience to the viewers directors counted with 22 different layouts and configurations for live inputs. All configurations were able to transition back to back between each other. In order to provide maximum flexibility the scene included a script and a set of configuration files, allowing TVB to adjust and add new layouts withuot the need of modifying the scene.
In addition a line chart fed with real time finance chart data was created. A Viz Pilot template was created for producers to select the desired timeframe and stock, index, etc. This template was integrated to TVB Finance SQL database and updated the graphic while on-air.
