With the growing trend of live streaming, producers are searching for various tools available to make their production switching workflow as smooth as possible. Bannister Lake’s focus is its flagship product, Chameleon, our data and graphics platform. Chameleon allows aggregation, moderation and distributing of any data type from news, elections, sports scores, traffic, weather, closings, alerts, etc… and distribute it back through an API or using it’s own graphics rendering engine.
At this years IBC, we discovered key features in Wirecast Pro that make the two platforms work together with very little effort.
Chameleon HTML5 render isn’t restricted to any dimension or style. The conventional means of using 16×9 isn’t necessary in the world of web, and therefore, custom graphics created using Chameleon’s rendering engine allow users to create graphics in whatever size they want. This becomes useful in Wirecast’s production environment, where using their Web Display tool as a source, you can specify the dimensions of your graphics. And an even more impressive feature, Wirecast supports HTML5’s alpha channel.
With Chameleon, users have a full on solution for tickers and branding. Chameleon’s powerful branding tool can allow larger productions to schedule bugs, snipes and promo/sponsorship material during their broadcast. And for 24/7 users of Wirecast, producers can integrate their programming lineup in Chameleon and have support for displaying upcoming content. On the data side, Wirecast users of Chameleon, can display everything from social media content, news, elections and sports scores results in an automated continuous cycle, enhancing information for your viewers. Essentially, Chameleon is an enhanced CG ticker/branding solution that works out of the box with Wirecast.
For commercial companies, looking for a package to distribute data while broadcasting their content, Chameleon and Wirecast is the ideal solution.
