Montreal, QC, April 17, 2017– Astucemedia, leaders in bridging the gap between broadcast graphics, creative design and data integration, will be demonstrating augmented reality (AR) interactive graphics at the NAB Show in Las Vegas (April 24-27). The showcase features interactive AR graphics for sports, finance, and news, driven by the Astucemedia Data Platform.
“AR is the future of interactive graphics for news, sports, elections and finance, enhancing the viewer experience for data visualization and event coverage,” says Alex Leclerc, founder and CEO of Astucemedia. “AR gives a new perspective into the depth and detail of the information being presented.”
With the focus on interactive graphics, Astucemedia will be highlighting their latest Data Platform product, with modules for Finance, Weather, Social Media, Elections, and a wide range of sports, as well as data visualization plugins for leading graphics systems. The AR experience was created by Astucemedia’s award-winning Creative Services team, who offer creative design, templating and graphic integration for end-to-end graphics solutions.
