Viz Pilot Edge (HTML5-based) and Viz Pilot (ActiveX) are template-based systems 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, maps, 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.

Viz Pilot Edge automatically generates templates or builds rich cross-platform custom templates using native HTML for powerful user interfaces. A redundant centralized storage of content allows for easy administration and fail-safe operation. The system includes the latest standards for maximum interoperability, efficiency, and support.

Newsroom Integration

The newsroom component integrates with all major newsroom systems: Dalet, ENPS, iNews, Octopus, OpenMedia, and more. It supports real-time previews 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.

Meta-graphics: linking graphics and video

Viz Pilot supports the Meta-graphics workflow. Rather than burning graphics into video and rendering a final version of the clip, Meta-graphics allows editors and journalists to edit graphics templates in Viz Pilot and then save the graphics metadata alongside clean newly-edited video, saving both to the Viz One MAM system. The end result is a workflow that allows the journalist to change graphic content, images, and video timelines up until the moment content is played on air.
