TV3 Elections

KIDS Graphics provides TV3 with their live and realtime election results systems. 

Since 2002, KIDS Graphics have provided the core graphics, information management, analysis, and information presentation software for TV3's live election coverage.

Elections are a challenging and difficult production due to the unpredictability, one-off nature of the production, mass of real time data, and production demands involved.

KIDS Graphics provide a multi-layered solution to this complex situation that manages these challenges and enables fluid and flexible operation on and around election day.

For TV3, KIDS Graphics Provide:

  • Data collection from the Department of Justice servers.
  • Centralised database for incoming data and locally generated analysis and operational information.
  • Generation of flexible broadcast graphics including election stats tickers, analysis full pages, name keys, etc.
  • Supply of an Election Browser web based tool for internal monitoring and analysis of the flow of the election.
  • Full redundancy including disaster recovery site.

These systems work together to provide a flexible and reliable system for both KIDS and TV3 in this highly important production.
