The storm on reaching the heights of a basketball hoop, it lost its resemblance to the ordinary water. The brackish liquid is much more ominous and the insurmountable water is one with so much of force that can easily lift off the 3000-pounds cars, even the fatten neighbourhoods and a landscape that is completely under devastation condition.
Erika Navarro, the meteorologist easily dwarfed the water barrier around her 5 foot 2 inch of the frame and remains calm. It is a simple secret, the water was not real, it was virtual and the Navarro only have appeared to be on the verge to be a part of water swallow.
The Weather Channel meteorologist already gave a warning, "Once we get to that nine-foot range, this is an absolute life-threatening scenario,". "If you find yourself here, please get out!"
New, welcome the future of metrological broadcasting with arms. This technique is known as “immersive mixed reality technology” in which Navarro took up the green screen graphics and merge them within real-time, predictive data from different agencies. The result is simply remarkable of this virtual condition that can easily unfold the studio anchor, they even set up a terrifying real scenario in which the anchor was walking viewers through potential weather with newfound urgency.
This week the storm have surged up the warning along North Carolina coast proliferation in which the weather channel has used the tool to show off their viewers how the surge might affect the neighbourhood in more way than predicted. It has fallen into the category of the reasonable worst-case scenario.
The Weather Channel Vice President, Michael Potts have led his team to create the channel new IMR content. He believed that the mixed reality is actually the future of the weather presentation. The only aim is to engage and entertain the audience but not missing out on the message that is sober.
Potts remembered the death of half of all the US citizen due to the tropical cyclones that have surged up the storm. "This is lifesaving information we're trying to convey, and we wanted to do it in a way that creates a very visceral response in viewers," He added, "We wanted to paint a real picture for people and show that anywhere in America, this could be your neighbourhood."
Nora Zimmett, senior vice president of content and programming at the company said, "I watched hours of rehearsals and still flinched when the car dropped from the ceiling," "To see the culmination of six months of front-line work appear on screen as an Immersive Mixed Reality experience emphasizes that the Weather Channel is the leader in groundbreaking technology."
