The Weather Channel presents: Tornado in the Studio

 

The Weather Channel in Atlanta utilises StarTracker camera technology and The Future Group's realistic Epic Games supported graphics rendering to create an in-studio tornado and all it brings with it. Including falling power lines, deadly debris and a car that has been airlifted and battered by the tornado and is then dropped in front of meterologist Jim Cantore. The aqquired virtual technology is a first for the The Weather Channel. According to the broadcaster, this was only the beginning of a series of immersive AR supported presentations.
