Weather Central recently launched their new broadcast platform using Virtual Earth. This is awesome for broadcasters who now have another option to visualize their news stories on maps, aerial photos and 3D. It took me a while to get a copy of this video, but it's their promotional video they showed at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas this year. It was running non-stop in their booth. If you attended my session at Where 2.0 (yes, the late night, beer drinking session) I played the video and stunned you all. Well, now the rest of the world can see some examples of just how cool Virtual Earth CAN integrate into your broadcasts!
This looks spectacular! Is WeatherCentral using Virtual Earth to do the graphics or their own software, and MS is just supplying the imagery?
They have integrated our 3D environment as a backdrop for their 3D broadcast software. So, they're using Virtual Earth 3D in their broadcast platform to create a user friendly 3D experience for broadcast.
