Altitude Sports and Entertainment Embrace AccuWeather Storyteller Interactive System

Altitude Sports and Entertainment is making use of the AccuWeather Storyteller, an interactive touch screen system, for their studio productions.

StoryTeller engages viewers by putting all the elements of any news story literally at one’s fingertips. With full telestration capabilities, as well as slow motion video playback, Altitude will be able to explain stories in a clear and conversational style while highlighting key plays on any display screen.

“We are thrilled to incorporate this technology into our broadcasts and bring our fans the highest quality product available” says Kim Carver, President and CEO of Altitude Sports & Entertainment.

“StoryTeller allows Altitude to engage viewers by presenting segments with cutting-edge technology,” says Ryan Ayers, Vice President, Display Systems and Services at AccuWeather. “It further expands their capability to bring a lively, interactive look to all the types of stories that their viewers have come to expect.”

AccuWeather says StoryTeller incorporates a consistent interface and is easy to use for all story topics, be it breaking news, sports, elections, finance, traffic or weather. With StoryTeller, a presenter quickly incorporates live HD and SD video, images, movies, and web content as the story unfolds in real time.

StoryTeller is screen-independent and will work with touchscreens of all sizes and manufacturers, and even with existing touchscreen hardware.
