Storm alert: Brainstorm and 3D Storm Partner to launch LiveCG Election

Brainstorm Multimedia, industry leader in broadcast graphics solutions, and 3D Storm, distributor of NewTek and LiveXpert products, debut an exclusive partnership at IBC 2015, with the launch of a brand new product.

Already a member of the NewTek Developer Network, Brainstorm Multimedia’s implementation of the AirSend API was the first full integration of real-time 3D graphics and CG products with NewTek’s TriCaster systems. LiveXpert, tools for live video and sports production, is a member of the NewTek Developer Network, and aims at extending any production environment by providing tools to manage, create and add outstanding graphics, social media content, sports timing and scoring information into any live production workflow.

"Augmented Reality is what broadcasters want today", says Franck Lafage, 3D Storm Managing Director, "we are thrilled to expand LiveXpert offering and to be able to provide the broadcast industry with such an amazing product. LiveCG Election combines both ease of use and outstanding graphics capabilities".


At this year's IBC, Brainstorm and 3D Storm will debut their partnership with the launch of LiveCG Election, a product dedicated to turning complex data from election results into full 3D animated graphs in real time. LiveCG Election gives the ability to deliver high-end 3D animated bars, pies or charts and augmented reality graphics as soon as the election results are officially published.

“We are delighted to have forged a strong relationship with 3D Storm and LiveCG Election is the result,” says David Alexander, Brainstorm’s Commercial Director. “With over 20 years of experience in providing customers with election graphics, from small requirements to large-scale turnkey projects for national elections, we were very pleased to be able to work with 3D Storm to develop this outstanding product for their particular markets.”


LiveCG Election is available as a software only product, supporting NewTek AirSend® protocol and sending motion graphics in full resolution to any TriCaster connected through Ethernet without using any video inputs. 3D Storm also offers a turnkey system providing SDI in/out as well as Fill and Key to be connected to any vision mixer.
