CustomWeather’s avatar-delivered weather forecasts are a combined effort of our weather data, Synthesia AI’s avatar technology, and broadcast graphics and programming from ARTS Computer Technologies.
- Enhance Venue Digital Signage – Create a broadcast-like weather experience in locations such as gas stations, waiting rooms, airport lounges, restaurants, etc.
- Cost-effective solution for broadcast markets – An ideal option for smaller weather markets on-air or even larger broadcast markets where on-air talent can be cloned for localized weather forecasts. Instead of one broadcast for a major metro area, hundreds of customized weather forecasts for each surrounding town in the likeness of the on-air talent can be offered.
- Expand the scope and reach of live broadcasters – Complement, expand, and localize the work of live broadcasters. Instead of one broadcast for a major metro area, hundreds of customized weather forecasts for each surrounding town in the likeness of the on-air talent can be offered.
- Suitable for smartphones and smart speakers – Avatars are an effective tool for emerging digital venues such as smartphones and smart speakers.
- Keep content fresh – Each avatar video is composed of 2-10 automated segments of about 10 seconds each. Each segment covers a particular weather portion such as Doppler Radar, 5-day Forecast, Today/Tonight/Tomorrow Forecast, Local Almanac, etc. Segments can include rotating wording to avoid repetition. Avatar forecasts can be both localized and customized for an optimal experience.
- Over 85 languages available – Each digital human can be customized to speak in any number of languages.
- Easily customizable – The service is fully automated, allowing end users to select how many updates they wish to receive per day.
- Quick implementation – Training of an avatar requires only a few hours of voice training. Alternatively, pre-established avatars from Synthesia can be used. Placement of the avatar on screen is customizable and segments without an avatar are also available. When video without audio is needed, a footer ticker with subtitles can be provided.
