With more content on all platforms, Bannister Lake made some changes to improve graphics for specialty networks who don’t want to do a lot of heavy lifting. Chameleon’s new episode support adds a whole whack of data information for network programs.
To assist with the new episode features, media information happens quickly and the OMDB and TVDB readers are for networks who don’t have a lot of money to spend on promotion and marketing creative services. The service helps with word processing, transferring info to consumers who require automatic retrieval of film and television metadata.
Episodic info just got real, offering specific stats – stars, character, plot, seasons, episodes, even ratings. Just have all metadata automatically slotted into snipes, banners and coming up next boards – without entering a single thing. For example, an upcoming SNL episode will air on your network this coming Saturday. TVDB will pull that episode information, including the guest stars Tom Hanks and Lady Gaga. Rather than have the graphics department enter that info manually and pushing it to master control, Chameleon will automatically populate your template into a “UP NEXT” board or “COMING UP IN FIVE” banner.
Good Things Come in 3s at Community
Community Supports Cryptocurrency Quotes
Bitcoin is on a tear right now, so we felt it and it’s other cryptocurrency pals deserved to be added to the current Community financial features list, right along with US and Canadian dollar information, for networks pulling currency data.
New Time Zone Shifting Support
A request we’ve had was to show a way to display content accurately based on a network’s location. For example, sports scores; displaying accurate times for the same sports game playing in a lot of states or provinces won’t be an issue. Have a game airing in New York City at 7pm? Community Reader will automatically translate the correct time for your west coast server. This goes for cross promotion of national live events, concerts, E-Sports and other time sensitive data.
Community Reader Supports Elections
The elections module isn’t just for major electoral races. It can also be used for local community businesses who want to create a story around featured events such as best restaurant polling, council and board members voting results, community fan favourite mascots. With Community Reader Election support, the community could enter those results and provide networks or the region with the results.
