Canadian broadcaster CanWest Global Television used an advanced turnkey election graphics platform from Montreal-based VertigoXmedia to integrate coverage from the country’s recent elections. Global Television installed the VertigoXmedia system, based on the company’s ProducerXmedia platform, in Toronto and at each of its local stations across the country. A central server in Toronto, managed and distributed election results. This setup allowed different regions to provide their own full-screen graphics, tickers and charts — customizable to reflect the station’s look or identity — while inserting up-to-the-second information, including breaking headlines, from live data feeds. VertigoXmedia’s stack-based playout system also enabled Global to create multiple sequences by dragging and dropping stack elements via a standard Windows-based graphical interface.
