Viz Pilot Edge 1.5.0 & Pilot Data Server 8.4.0

This release adds precision and flexibility to searching of element/template and greatly increases the search speed.

11 Dec 2019

Viz Pilot Edge fully supports native HTML newsroom components without the need of a local installation. An optional plugin allows Viz Pilot Edge to run on legacy NRCS systems that do not support native HTML5.

Additionally, Viz Pilot Edge can be used in a browser without the need of an NRCS, allowing content to be prepared without a MOS-based workflow. This capability allows users to prepare elements or timelines to be used later.

New features

This release adds precision and flexibility to the searching of elements/templates and greatly increases the search speed (up to 20x faster with unlimited search results).
