As you might remember, the first post of this series focused on how Smart Captions can automate 80% of your captioning and subtitling work, generating additional revenues. We now focus on how Dalet Media Cortex can vastly improve your content discovery experience, helping you unearth valuable content effortlessly.
The Pro and Enterprise versions of Dalet Media Cortex introduce users to a unique experience with the Dalet Discovery Panel. The tool is designed to automatically surface recommendations for relevant media within your Dalet Galaxy five system, which is related to the content you are working on.
What can discovery search do for me?
Well, two things for starters. First, it will search content automatically, based on the context of your story as you type it. Dalet Media Cortex surfaces relevant media that is not currently part of your Story MediaBin.
Secondly, it provides entity identification. This means that you’ll get an understanding of certain terms such as people, locations, organizations and events with descriptions, illustrations, and weblinks coming from Bing or Google Knowledge Graph.
What’s the functionality behind it?
The Dalet Discovery Panel is currently available in Dalet Galaxy five’s Planning Editor and Story Editor, and consists of three parts:
- Keywords: Dalet Media Cortex suggests a collection of keywords, key phrases and relevant IPTC NewsCodes. These are specific to the recommendations it provides you with. As you continue to write your story, the keywords become more precise.
- Recommendations: other stories, media or wires are suggested in order of relevance. This section is constantly updated based on suggested keywords.
- MediaBin (a topic for a separate blog post!): recommendations are tightly integrated into your MediaBin If one of the recommendations is of particular relevance to your story, you can simply tag it to move it from your recommendations list to your MediaBin.
What is in it for me?
The Dalet Discovery Panel automatically surfaces content that you would not have easily found manually. This allows you to create deeper, richer and more meaningful news stories, with a wider range of sources. An efficient and easy way to maximize the use of your archive!
Additionally, it saves you searching time! Consider it an intelligent and complex search query that helps your story evolve… And, the best thing, you didn’t need to scratch your head to build that complex search! When you consider all the stories you may write over a week, automatic discovery will save you hours looking for that elusive content that was essential to your piece!
Finally, you stay in control: you can add, delete or modify keywords and IPTC NewsCodes, plus you can pick and choose what recommended content is most suitable for your story.
With the Dalet Discovery Panel provided by Dalet Media Cortex, not only you save searching time looking for valuable content, but you also increase your stories’ quality and meaning by bringing in more valuable sources.
