Idonix has over 12 years’ experience in real-time graphics for broadcast, presentation and the web, encompassing data integration, workflow and rendering.

Election shows are a prime example of where real-time data feeds must be ingested and processed, where producers need great workflow tools to play out graphics quickly and accurately, and where editors and talent need clear and informative information displays.

Idonix will share their experiences at the BBC US 2012 Election and recent BBC Budget shows, where IGNITION – an application framework for control systems development - was used to drive Vizrt lower thirds, full form, touchscreen and virtual studio graphics.

They will also be demonstrating how BBC Sport are using IGNITION to manage web based workflow and rendering of Vizrt data driven graphics for post and live applications. Presenting will be Pete Griffiths and Russell Leak. 

Pete commenced his career at the BBC and has over 14 years experience with elections and live production. He started Idonix some 12 years ago with Co-director Paul Harrison.

Russell has over 15 years experience working in realtime graphics and virtual studio both from an operational/production stand point as well as business development and project management.

What people say about Idonix :

“It is such an advantage for us to have the benefit of your expertise and experience on a huge project like this and this time it paid off for us in so many ways. All the graphics were speedy, up to date and consistent”

BBC Elections 2010

“The programme worked superbly and it gave the show real pace, complexity and a fullness that just wouldn’t have been possible in the past. It was a real ground-breaker!”

    Thanks to all who attended last evening, I think you'll agree it was a very interesting evening and showed that you don't have to be a producer to be able to present a story reactively with up to the minute data . Thank you Pete and Russel l...... looking forward to eating my pie for lunch today! Joanna

    If you ever need to get real-time data into Viz graphics, particularly complex election data, I strongly recommend attending this forum. Over the next 18 months, the UK will "enjoy" the televising of UK local elections, European elections, the Scottish Referendum and a General Election. If you will be involved in producing graphics for any of these, you will certainly learn a lot from Idonix, the acknowledged experts in this field.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
