FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
AUGUST 28, 2014. CGS, a provider of broadcast automation software and fully licensed data feeds, and Vizrt, a leading provider of content production systems for the digital media industry, announced the integration of CGS’s Newschief data feed for use on Vizrt’s 3D ticker platform, Viz Ticker.
Newschief Feed options include specifically formatted xml for automated news headlines, weather forecasts and conditions, sports scores, game notes, sports stats, stock quotes, lottery results, horoscopes, day in history, quote of the day, and famous birthdays. In addition, CGS can provide a solution to collect and output school closings, high school sports scores, election returns, and browser-entry of local headlines, all in an xml structure supported Viz Ticker.
“We continue to be impressed with the dynamic nature of the Vizrt platform. Integrating our licensed XML feeds into the 3D Ticker platform just makes sense. Vizrt clients can easily tap into cost-effective, licensed feed content, and have the option to collect and distribute local content to the 3D Ticker.”
