ionoco powers new UK game shows16 February 2011
Broadcast technology provider ionoco has supplied the technology for two new UK game shows: primetime National Lottery series Secret Fortune and daytime quiz Perfection.
In Secret Fortune, a pair of contestants must answer a series of general knowledge questions which are matched with 24 envelopes containing varying amounts of prize money inside. ionoco has designed the computer system which runs the game, generates graphics for the three on-set screens and host information feed, and controls the envelope holders which slide up to meet the host.
Perfection challenges a contestant to correctly answer true or false questions. However, if they make any mistakes, they open the game up to the other contestants for a chance to share in the final jackpot. ionoco provided the system that runs the game and generates all of the on-air graphics.
Simon Ingram, Managing Director of ionoco, said: “Being chosen as the technology provider for Secret Fortune and Perfection is testament to ionoco’s expertise in developing bespoke computer systems for any game show format. We are grateful to Wild Rover and 12 Yard for having given us the chance to showcase our technology.”
Phil Morrow, CEO of Wild Rover said: “Making Secret Fortune the compelling show that it is requires ground breaking technical systems and ionoco have proven once again that they are world leaders in game show technology.”
