Vizrt iNEWS Command Plugin 3.0

Vizrt is pleased to announce the release of the Vizrt iNEWS Command Plugin 3.0. This is a major release and Vizrt recommends upgrading as soon as possible.

New Features and Bugfixes

  • Support for star cg elements (manually-entered elements in iNews) based on templates in a Viz Trio show.
  • The Vizrt iNews Command plugin now supports initializing a graphic item/playlist on the program channel in the context menu in Avid iNEWS Command.
