In the newsroom, the editorial staff will have access to graphic templates through Viz Content Pilot in their current newsroom control system. Editors will also be able to access graphics templates in the edit bay through the Viz NLE plugin. These templates include any graphics elements needed for on-air use and maps generated through Viz World.
