ITN is using Apple technology to power its general election coverage.

The UK TV news giant is using a suite of iMacs and Power Mac G4s to edit polling-day feeds from camera crews around the UK, integrating this into its election-day broadcasts.

These will transform the information into a data tickertape that will feed across the TV screen during broadcasts.

The Macs will also prepare data for ITN's 24-hour TV news channel and its radio-news broadcasts.
