Viz Pilot is a template based system for journalists to create, manage, and deliver high volumes of top-quality content. Plan your news, sports, or election productions with state of the art graphics, animations, videos and images; all from an easy to use newsroom interface with live preview for the journalist and a workflow allowing for last minute changes up until air time.
A template-based workflow for creating branded graphics to be used during a live production
Reuse graphics and video assets for multiple rundowns and shows
Non-burnt in graphics workflow from craft editors to journalists to on-air
Browser-based journalist tool for Mac or PC
Viz Pilot´s newsroom component integrates with all major newsroom systems: Dalet, ENPS, iNews, Octopus, OpenMedia, etc. It supports real-time preview and snapshots, giving the journalist full control of how a prepared news rundown will look. Video content is searched by keywords and the journalist edits the video and adds graphics to the video on a timeline. With Viz Pilot journalists are able to have multiple Transition Logic graphics on several timeline tracks, creating an overlap of the graphics. This gives a more sophisticated graphics presentation when the content is played to air from Viz Engine.
Viz Pilot includes a powerful multi-user playlist with real-time updates allowing multiple producers to update the playlist simultaneously. The playlist can also be automatically synchronized with a variety of applications, such as newsroom systems or other Vizrt systems such as Viz Trio.
Viz Pilot Edge newsroom tool
The easy-to-use browser-based journalist interface, Viz Pilot Edge, provides all the tools a journalist needs to work with creating graphics in a newsroom script. Viz Pilot Edge is compatible with Mac and PC and runs natively in the Octopus Newsroom System and ENPS as a MOS plugin.
Allow for last minute edits
With an integrated workflow from the newsroom to the control room, journalists can change graphic content, images and video timelines up until the moment content is played on air.
Graphic and video content can be played out automatically in a variety of formats, in real-time, for multiplatform distribution. Viewers on mobile devices, online, and on-air have the best possible viewing experience without the delay caused by transcoding.
Keep your brand design consistent
By using a variety of template forms, journalists can plan their rundowns by entering new data, adding images and videos in predefined graphic animations, and preview the result instantaneously. Day-to-day content creation can be totally independent from the design department.
Meta-graphics: linking graphics and video
Journalists in the newsroom access video content from Viz One through the Viz Pilot newsroom component. This interface integrates directly with their native newsroom control system – iNews, ENPS, Octopus, Dalet, etc. Video content is searched by keywords and the journalist edits the video and adds graphics to the video on a timeline. With Viz Pilot journalists are able to have multiple transition logic related graphics on the timeline on several tracks, creating an overlap of the graphics. This gives a more sophisticated graphic presentation when the content is played to air from Viz Engine.
This Meta-Graphics workflow allows the journalist to change graphic content up until the moment the video and graphics are played on air. It also allows the graphic and video content to be played in a variety of formats in real-time from the Viz Engine for multiplatform distribution. Viewers on mobile devices, online, and on-air have the best possible viewing experience without the delay caused by transcoding.
Dive into social media
Viz Pilot takes feeds from a comprehensive list of social media sources and displays the messages as they happen. Metadata can also be acquired and used to automatically create maps showing viewer location.
Order Management tracks requests of media assets from editorial staff and the delivery of media assets by the creative staff. Built on top of Viz Pilot and Viz One, the system uses plug-in and API architectures to integrate with a central order management system. Users can access via a web interface or directly from inside the newsroom control system.
