KWWL-TV, which serves Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Iowa City and Dubuque, IA, uses Curious Traffic Producer software to keep viewers up-to-date on traffic conditions.
At NAB2006, Curious Software will showcase its new Curious Traffic Flow, which combines Curious Traffic Producer and Curious Map Presenter to offer broadcasters a complete solution for the design, production and on-air presentation of their traffic maps.
Traffic Producer targets the mapmaking power of Curious World Maps at illustrating traffic reports. The simple, template-driven user interface allows both graphics and non-graphics professionals to focus on the area of interest, add storytelling details and create still or animated maps that are ready for air in a single click.
Completing the Curious Traffic Flow is Map Presenter, an interactive playback system for the control room or studio. A full rundown of stills or animations can be imported from Traffic Producer or built within the Map Presenter. Video clips also can be incorporated from elsewhere. The order of the rundown can be changed with simple drag and drop operations right up to the moment of broadcast.
