The Pilot Data Server acts as an application server for accessing Viz Pilot’s database and other services, and enables the use of features including Crop Service, Template Tagging, Update Service, Person Search, search on Viz One, Thumbnail Generator and Timeline Editor in Viz Pilot workflows. It's also required when using Graphic Hub as the Viz Pilot database, and for integrating with Viz Story, Viz Pilot Edge and Template Builder.

Note: Viz Story, Viz Pilot Edge and Template Builder all need to be connected to the Pilot Data Server to access the Viz Pilot database.
