Global TV’s live election results powered by Chameleon software

Bannister Lake’s Chameleon software and election module helped power live results on Global TV stations and websites as Canadians headed to the municipal polls in BC, Manitoba and Ontario. Headquartered in Cambridge, ON, Bannister Lake tracked over 1,400 individual races and thousands of candidates with multiple data feeds used to bring in results data in real-time. Global also used Chameleon’s BLADE RESTful API to populate graphics on-set using augmented reality systems and to feed web objects that provided online users with race results. Chameleon software is managed via a web-based interface that allows an unlimited number of production and technical users to access election results data. Teams can then integrate results into various election graphics templates, reformat data and redistribute it to other devices or production systems.
