Google and CEA promoted on Tuesday their joint launch of "Insights from the 2012 Debates," a "state-of-the-art digital wall" that will travel to all the presidential and vice presidential debates, starting Wednesday in Denver.
It will provide displays of debate-related search trends and user-generated content from Google Plus.
Broadcast and cable reporters will be able to access the wall for stories, with CEA staff on site to "manage the process and keep things running smoothly," according to a CEA spokesperson.
"Technology is transforming the political process from one that watches votes from afar, to one in which people can participate, engage and shape in a democratic way," said Susan Molinari, Google's vice president of public policy and government affairs.
For Google, the wall is an extension of its campaign news hub.
