The Weather Channel’s New Green Screen Tech is Impressive

As hurricane season begins, the Weather Channel debuted a new green screen technology that uses Unreal Engine—a video game development tool used to render graphics in real-time.

According to Motherboard:

The presentation was created as a partnership between The Weather Channel and The Future Group, a Norwegian company that struck a deal last year with the makers of Unreal Engine—Epic Games—to use the tech in TV broadcasts. The project is designed to bring mixed reality and augmented reality to live productions.

While the premise for graphics wasn’t terribly groundbreaking (many would say it’s common sense to evacuate areas where the water level is near the height of a basketball net), its potential moving forward is intriguing and certainly makes for more compelling television.
