MetService Nets Big Fish

The NZ MetService has sold a locally made weather graphics system to the BBC for a sum rumoured to be in the millions. The state-of-the-art software package – Weatherscape XT – is the most up to date version of the system, which is already being used by channels in Australia, Europe, Dubai, Turkey, Beirut, Saudi Arabia and Asia. “That the world’s leading weather broadcaster has chosen MetService staff and products to update its weather presentation is a real endorsement of our people and their skills, ” said CEO John Lumsden. “The original software development has well and truly paid for itself, and we’ve got great hopes for this new version, Weatherscape XT.”
