So, you have been provided with a Pioneer® inspection deliverable on a USB drive, hard drive, or network folder? Here's what you need to know about viewing it.

  1. Open the Folder. You will see an executable application (.exe) and a series of subfolders corresponding to each individual inspection.

note: you can open each folder and find a Video, Header & Observation data, and an "unfolded" 360 image (where applicable) for a single inspection.

2. Run the Application (.exe)

Double click and run the application, and allow it to set up.

Note: if Microsoft warns you, please don't worry, our application is safe. We just don't have a lot of downloads yet.

3. Click "Log in as Guest" (first time use)

Guest mode means you are using only the local (hard drive) data, not connecting to your Pioneer account that may have other inspections.

4. If prompted to "Select Folder," point at the parent folder (first time use)

Let the application know you want it to look inside the folder that contains all this data. Locate that folder with the Explorer/Finder.

5. Find the Inspections You Want to Review

You will be presented with a dashboard list of inspections.

You can add columns to the view by using the "Settings" icon on the table.

Note: currently you cannot Sort or Filter the table, as you are in an offline data mode

6. Click the Blue "Play" Triangle to View an Inspection

This enters a single inspection view mode.

7. Watch the Video, Jump to Observations, Open the Header, etc.

You can utilize all the Pioneer functionality, such as:

  • Customize your view: resize, activate and close "modules" - you can reconfigure your screen with the little blue handles at the bottom right of each tile, "X" out things you don't need, and bring them back with the right panel. Available are:

    • Inspection Headers (meta)

    • Video player

    • Observations (conditions)

    • Ratings

    • Flat View (unfolded image of 360 video)

    • Pipe Connections (for MACP)

      • Point Cloud (for 360 video)

  • Video playback: play your video at various speeds, advance and rewind by frame or 1 second intervals

    • Pan, tilt and zoom for 360 videos

  • Jump to observations

    • By clicking on an observation row, the video will advance to the appropriate snapshot
