Viz Pilot Edge User Guide

Version 1.0.3 | Published December 06, 2017 ©


Viz Pilot Edge can be used in other workflows than the newsroom workflow where main focus has been in this user guide.


There is also support for the web based fill in form technology in our NLE plugin for the major craft editing systems. From the graphics plugin Viz Pilot Edge can be opened and the same interface is available in the craft editing system. In this workflow Viz Pilot Edge is available for handling graphics only.

Templates in Viz Pilot Edge vs. Viz Pilot News

There are no methods for migrating templates from ActiveX based templates used in Viz Pilot News to HTML based templates used in Viz Pilot Edge. The technologies are so different that it is not feasible to handle a migration. The suggested approach is to recreate them one by one over a period of time.

The Template Builder, which also is bundled with the Pilot Data Server, is a tool provided for creating complex templates. Applying separate java script code stored on any web server, the same functionality as with Viz Pilot News templates can be achieved. This requires re-coding of the templates.
