IBC 2016: Vizrt will demonstrate a preview of the new HTML-based newsroom component, Viz Pilot Edge, on its stand at IBC.

The component is a new interface for users of Viz Pilot in their newsroom control systems that aims to allow journalists to more easily fill graphics templates with text, images, graphics and video.

Viz Pilot Edge is compatible with Mac and PC and runs natively in the Octopus Newsroom System and ENPS as a MOS plugin.

“Vizrt pioneered template-based graphics tools for the journalist in the 1990s,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, Vizrt CTO.

“And the idea of putting the journalist in control of their storytelling remains part of the DNA of the company today.

“With Viz Pilot Edge, we’re providing media companies with technology that will act as the backbone for future workflows. We want to allow them to be able to easily tie graphics and video together from their browser for any type of production.”
