And Now, Complete Data Visualization, From Canada


Here’s a combination that might be worth noting: Data management software, custom development solution and implementation expertise is being combined with the graphic design capabilities of a Montréal-based broadcast design firm in an effort to provide “complete data visualization solutions” for broadcast media across North America.

The announcement links Bannister Lake with Motion Path in a way designed to create “new storytelling efficiencies and possibilities for news and sports producers, station groups, event producers, and digital signage networks.”

Bannister Lake provides broadcasters with automated live data management engine, allowing a variety of data formats to be parsed, edited, moderated, and strategically distributed. Data appears on-air in the form of tickers, sports bugs, full frame graphics, and branding elements.

Motion Path provides graphic design services especially created for live data environments.

“Having a strong international design partner like Motion Path helps us add value and efficiency to clients who are seeking a flexible and powerful way to populate graphics with live data from any source,” said Georg Hentsch, president of Bannister Lake. “We had an excellent experience working together recently on the Ontario election with TFO and we look forward to working on many more data-rich projects together.”

Anton Maximovsky, president of Motion Path, added that Bannister Lake’s data solutions will give our clients a straightforward way to manage complex data sets that will integrate beautifully into our designs. Very often, data management was something our clients struggled with, needing to custom build a solution or had to compromise their expectations. By linking our graphics to Bannister Lake’s solutions, we have opened up many more creative possibilities for our clients.”

The partnership also strengthens both companies’ election offerings, providing “a complete end-to-end solution” for election producers already planning for 2020.

Beyond elections, both companies look forward to providing innovative real-time visualization solutions for sports, financial news, events, eSports, and digital signage.
