CNN, which introduced the Magic Wall in 2006 and has been acknowledged as the industry leader in technology, is ready to spring some new surprises on the public during the upcoming elections, reports B&C.
David Bohrman, senior VP and the Washington, D.C., bureau chief for CNN, is currently overseeing the installation of new equipment in CNN’s New York studios that he said will be used to display virtual objects in “a way no one has ever done before.”
“It builds on the fundamental technology we used for the Virtual Capitol and the hologram,” said Bohrman. The new technology will be permanent, for use in daily news broadcasts as well as election coverage.
“Our colleagues are catching up,” Bohrman added. “To stay ahead, we are working on several fronts to push forward in some really spectacular ways.”
CNN is also making a major upgrade to its Magic Wall, the story adds.
