News12 Networks chooses Polygon Labs’ Ipsum to centralize its graphics solutions

News12 Networks, which consists of seven local cable news channels in the New York area, has selected Ipsum from Polygon Labs in order to enable streamlined management, data curation and centralized scheduling for its graphics master control.

Ipsum is fully integrated with Unreal Engine a powerful real-time 3D creation platform. And for that reason, News12 wanted to expand its ticker operations across multiple channels while increasing its sponsorship capabilities and efficiency with this graphics render technology. The kind of on-air tickers to be run by Ipsum are weather graphics, channel branding and events-based graphics. Ipsum aggregates all News12’s incoming data feeds, controls multiple Unreal Engine outputs and provides an interface for its producers and journalists to manage, curate, share and playout these feeds from any browser at any location.

“It’s important for us to establish look and feel that can be informative and dynamic because we want to engage our viewers to the fullest extent and distinguish ourselves from the competition”,  explains Travis Machacek, Director of Technical Operations, News12. “Polygon Ipsum gives our graphics that unique look plus it’s cost-effective, scalable, and gives us unlimited graphics control and coordination”.
