Metacast® Viking


While many broadcasters want to allow full creative freedom to its users, some local and national broadcasters would like to operate a highly automated and streamlined weather programming unit. For these, the Metacast® Viking is the perfect solution. It has the same quality graphics as the Borealis, but with less complexity and flexibility; so staff does not need to be specially trained within meteorology or systems operation.
Some clients operate a (number of) Viking system(s) in concert with a Borealis installation, to cater for staff differences and regional/local station requirements. The data, graphics and even storyboard structures of the Borealis and the Viking are identical.

Metacast® Viking is built with:
