Vizrt iNEWS Command Plugin 3.0.1

Vizrt is pleased to announce the release of the Vizrt iNEWS Command Plugin 3.0.1. This is a bugfix release.


The following known issues are now fixed:

  • Editing an onair graphic from iNews client caused DONE state to remain on this graphic if the user directly played the cued item after edit. The issue and bugfix applies when the configuration setting "Only mark last played graphic as done (per channel)" is in use.

    Note: This fix required fixes in both Avid Command and Vizrt iNEWS Command plugin. Hence this bugfix release of the plugin requires the Avid Command version or later.

  • When the plugin receives a channel specific eject call from Avid server, all graphics gets removed from the renderer (clear cut).

    There was a bug, however, where some graphics remained in "EJECTING" state after relocking the playlist in Avid iNEWS Command.

  • The default channel given in iNews SYSTEM.MAP for a cg element should take effect. This was not the case for Trio cg elements (if not by accident the program channel in the playout profile was the same).


Use this plugin with:

  • Avid iNEWS Command version or later.

  • Viz Pilot Data server 7.1 or later

  • Viz Preview Server 3.0 or later

  • Viz Trio 3.1 or later

  • Viz Pilot 7.1 or later

  • Media Sequencer version 4.0 or later
