#科技头条#【超炫:当3D走进天气预报】还在用二维平面式天气预报?out了。最近,一家电视台在演播室中引入3D模型展现天气状况,它甚至可以模拟出龙卷风效果。而该公司也认为这是对“实时交互式增进现实天气预告”领域的进军,能有效提高电视台的竞争力。

Cantore3D
The Weather Channel's Jim Cantore is a recent addition to the station's morning show, AMHQ. But man, did he hit one out of the park by showcasing the show's new 3D graphics, which make CNN's election hologram seem like a tool for illustrating a presidential debate in the 1970s.
In a lengthy simulation of the inner workings of a tornado, Cantore took the viewer inside a 3D twister generated in the studio, from the rear flank downdraft that wraps around the back of a rotating thunderstorm to the inflow of moisture rushing from areas upstream of the storm.
It amounts to the most effective televised meteorology lesson I've ever seen, and sets a new, high bar for any of the station's emerging competitors, such as the AccuWeather Network.
The Weather Channel, which is co-owned by NBC Universal, Blackstone and Bain Company, says the segment was an example of its new push into "live interactive augmented reality weather presentations." A press release says the technology was added through a partnership with Ncam, which creates similar presentations for sports programs.
The station is using it to try to boost ratings on AMHQ, which has struggled against its main competitors on cable news and network news broadcasts, despite the high-profile hire of formerGood Morning America meteorologist Sam Champion.
"This is the first time anything this sophisticated has been presented for weather graphics, especially on a daily, live basis," The Weather Channel said in a press release.
The station says the studio required an extensive infrastructure, with 2,000 square feet of space, 50 monitors and 3D graphics capabilities. The press release says it took about 3,000 hours to complete.
