Social engagement platform specialists Never.no announced the NAB debut of Real-Time Social Graphics, an HTML5 based graphics solution providing advanced visualisation for live broadcast, streaming, digital signage and events.
Never.no will be demonstrating the solution along with updates to their social engagement platform STORY, featuring new YouTube and Instagram integration and intuitive search capabilities to seamlessly pull social content into live broadcast and advertising, and bring engaging and interactive content to life.
Never.no’s Real-Time Social Graphics enables content producers to moderate and display UGC graphics outputs from a web browser. In addition to the platforms ability to work with traditional broadcast graphics engines, Never.no’s HTML5 graphics solution provides an extra layer of flexibility to traditional TV broadcasters.
As well, it enables users of streaming services such as Facebook Live, Twitch or YouTube to benefit from the STORY platform, integrating live audience engagement into their broadcasts. The graphics overlay is rendered directly in a web browser, meaning the user’s computer becomes the graphics engine, making it an effective solution for managing digital signage and on-set event displays, without the need for expensive equipment.
The HTML5 solution provides high-quality broadcast graphics that suit all workflows and budgets, integrating into creative content with no fuss. Offering fully customisable graphics to suit individual needs, Real-Time Social Graphics includes a selection of ‘off-the-shelf’ template packages suitable for news, entertainment and sport.
Never.no’s social engagement platform helps broadcasters and advertisers engage audiences and consumers by running social polls and integrating relevant social media content into their programming. It is used by top broadcasters and brands including SKY, QVC, Televisa, Univision and PlayStation, Specsavers and Danone. STORY’s latest update STORY 1.16 offers new YouTube and Instagram integration, enhanced visual analytics, workflow optimisation and advanced search features to quickly and efficiently find social content for real-time delivery.
“We’re delighted to be showcasing the latest features of STORY and our new on-board graphics solution, Real-Time Social Graphics, at NAB this year. Using our experience and expertise from the last 20 years of producing online, broadcast and advertising formats, we’ve worked hard to develop and deliver two solutions that enhance audience engagement and support broadcasters and advertisers in creating dynamic content. We look forward to working with our growing client-list of broadcasters and brands to help create innovative, interactive programming,” said Scott Davies, CEO at Never.no
