Pixel Power and Reuters partner to provide graphics solution to ABC

Pixel Power and Reuters Media have partnered to provide a graphics solution to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
Reuters Media have developed software that links Pixel Power's Collage systems directly to Reuters' data. The software resides within the Reuters data terminal as a small application. A simple user interface allows selection of which stocks prices, currencies or commodities to be displayed. Serial connection from the Reuters Terminal to a Collage then allows television broadcasters to display, in real time, financial information on the television screen. Once configured, no further operator intervention is required as the data is continually updated by the Reuters data feed. The software can also be used to display news, sports results or any other type of information.
The software is used for ABC's early morning business program 'Business Breakfast'. Development of the software was required so that data and/or content could be displayed on the Collage system, and subsequently was used by the ABC in their programming.
Integration with the Collage system was a key requirement of ABC, as it is their primary on-air graphics system. A Reuters' programmer worked closely with Pixel Power staff in England and their local distributor, AMtech, to ensure the software worked seamlessly with the Collage system, and found Pixel Power to be very responsive to his requests.
James Gilbert, Commercial Director of Pixel Power, said: "Our partnership with Reuters allows us to deliver turnkey financial and news information display systems world-wide, taking advantage of Reuters' strength in information content and our graphics display technology. The software Reuters developed is also compatible with our award-winning range of Clarity HD/SD graphics systems."
