your complete source for weather and environmental solutions

Broadcast Media Services

WeatherBank has several different Services to meet the needs of Broadcast professionals. Some of our most popular services include our WeatherBrief®-SATELLITE Service and the WeatherBrief®-NET Service. More importantly, any of our products or services can be customized and scaled to meet your particular needs.

WEATHERBRIEF®-SATELLITE SERVICE

This Service employs our proprietary software program that you install on an Windows®-compatible computer, either as a stand-alone PC or on a network server. A satellite antenna and data receiver are connected to the PC or server and used to deliver a continuous supply of weather data transmitted from our network.

Our weather products are updated automatically and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week without your having to do a thing. There's no Internet traffic to worry about and no telecommunications problems - with WeatherBrief®-SATELLITE, you have a personal weather station at your fingertips.

Software features allow you to set on-screen notices and human-voice announcements to automatically alert you when certain products have been updated. For example, you can easily configure the program to display a warning box when a Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for your area. Or, the local forecast can be set to automatically print whenever it's updated so you always have the latest copy at hand.

WEATHERBRIEF®-NET SERVICE

This is a custom weather web site accessed through the Internet. No special software or equipment is required, and you can view current weather information anywhere you have access to the World Wide Web.

All information is automatically updated as soon as they are processed at our network, and new products are added as they are generated. WeatherBrief®-NET makes an excellent redundant weather data source to ensure you're never without access to the critical weather information you need.

Re-broadcasting our products for on-air display can require the use of a third party software. This can be easily accomplished and many of our clients are doing this successfully. We recommend FrameRate's NetLinkTM. They provide the necessary scripts and macros needed to convert our .GIF or .PCX files for cable services. For more information, go to www.framerate.com.
