Primarily designed for the display of financial information, the system can be used for the graphical representation of any data. AirPlot is modular and flexible and can be easily customized to suit the requirements of individual broadcasters worldwide.
The basic AirPlot system displays live charts of intra-day and historical financial trade data from standard or custom data feeds. It is centered around financial data, but can support the display of any type of numerical data that can be plotted across time. It allows for single line charts, as well as comparison charts.
HotBugs is a software application that provides television broadcasters with the ability to automatically generate 'hot' displays of financial data including current stock prices, changes, trade volume and other market information. The product is modular and flexible and can be easily customized to suit the requirements of individual broadcasters.
LiveTick is an application that can generate a tick by tick display of stock trade data that is coming from a real time or delayed trade.

This ensures that the data displayed is fresh and not stale when it is on air.
