HotHat Media is a collaboration between the German broadcast agency Molden Media and the Thai software developer Big Chili. The goal of this joint venture is to create holistic solutions for broadcast graphics workflows that are flexible, easy to implement into any given infrastructure, and meet the demands of a changing broadcast market by providing each customer with a solution that is tailored to their specific requirements.
Molden Media is a multi-disciplinary broadcast agency, with a focus on visualizing big data on large interactive displays. They have a strong background in developing products and plugins for broadcast graphics infrastructures, such as the monitoring and maintenance software VizSecure, but are also known for their custom graphics solutions for a wide variety of formats and programs. Additionally, Molden Media operates on the forefront of interactive in-studio installations, having provided touch screens and accompanying content to clients across the globe.
The team of Big Chili has more than 30 years of experience in the development of software for the broadcast graphics industry. It holds a broad expertise in DirectX and OpenGL development and is thereby an all-round force in the graphics department. However, the greatest strength of Big Chili lies in web technology, allowing HotHat Media to create solutions that bridge the gap between the broadcast infrastructure and the internet.
HotHat Media introduces the Chili Box, a full-fledged solution for Broadcast Graphics Event Management. It allows for the time-code based recording of on-air graphics during a live show of any kind. All graphics and their metadata are stored on the Chili Box graphics server. Via the easy to understand user interface, the Chili Client, operators can change the timing of graphics, edit text to correct errors or switch the language, and even adapt the graphics’ layout for reuse on a different channel or device. The solution also manages the final playout either through an automation system or through the Chili Client interface.
