Search for templates and media using Find Graphics and FindFind MediaMedia.


Selecting Find Media opens a panel where you can search for available videos and images.

Basic Workflow

The basic workflow from a template to a data element ready for play-out is as follows:

  • Search for and open templates, data elements or media assets.

  • Search for resources using a variety of filter criteria.

  • Fill graphic templates with content using an auto-generated Fill In Form.

  • Preview graphics in the Preview Window.

  • Save the filled in graphic templates as data elements; they can also be saved in the library. Elements are stored in the Pilot Data Server.

  • Drag elements to a newsroom rundown where they will be available to Director for monitoring and play-out.

Note: At startup, the graphics panel or the media search panel can be shown rather than the welcome page. Select Show this on startup at the bottom right corner of the desired panel:


The most recent setting is saved in the browser's local storage.
