Audience Consuming Media

Your stories, infinite possibilities.

Empowering a world where compelling stories are beautifully made, effortlessly told and thoughtfully delivered.

By David Lasry | 11/15/20

Today, the Dalet team is proud to unveil its new brand identity and, at the same time, celebrate the announcement of our next generation unified news operations solution, Dalet Pyramid.

For 30 years, we’ve enabled hundreds of media-rich organizations to transform their production and distribution workflows – accelerating media operations, maximizing collaboration and creating higher value from content.

I’d like to take a moment to reflect on our story, and share with you our exciting plans for the next chapter.

Our roots, our strength.

Founded in 1990, Dalet focused its efforts on audio and developed the radio industry’s first automation software. This innovation brought radio stations into the digital era. In 2000, we made a strategic pivot and entered the video market. By 2002, Dalet had developed and launched the first end-to-end news production system powered by a media asset management (MAM) platform. The innovative, new workflow solution was adopted by technology-progressive broadcasters such as NBC (US), BFM (France) and Prime TV (Australia).

By 2010, MAM-powered solutions were considered an essential component of enterprise media workflows. With a decade of experience, Dalet would continue to lead the MAM market, innovating in the areas of business intelligence, cloud, and AI enablement, and expand the adoption of MAM beyond News, Radio and Programs, into Sports, Post-Production and Archive.

In 2019, Dalet purchased the Ooyala Flex Media Platform business. With this strategic acquisition, we now have an agile multi-platform content distribution solution that covers the entire content supply chain. The expanded product portfolio enables customers across a wider range of markets – sports teams, leagues and federations, brands and corporate organizations, as well as media and entertainment companies – to scale up their digital offerings and better engage their audiences.

This move also accelerated Dalet’s transformation into a leading SaaS and cloud-based solutions provider.

It is humbling to think that today, more than 80,000 users benefit from using Dalet solutions worldwide in their day-to-day work. There are many to acknowledge for this milestone. I extend my gratitude to the dedicated Dalet team members who have worked diligently to bring our solutions to market and to the hundreds of customers, some who have been with Dalet as long as twenty-five years. To those customers who were there from the beginning, a special thank you. It’s been a tremendous partnership and we look forward to the next steps.

Introducing our new brand 🚀

Our world has changed. We have evolved. It is time for the new.

One year ago, we started a company-wide initiative to reassess our brand, starting with our values and looking into our voice, our products and our processes. The goal of this collaborative initiative was to accelerate our company transformation and write the next chapter of our story, together with our customers and all “Daletians.”

Our new look, starting with the new Dalet logo, reflects our ability to evolve with the times, to flex and adapt, always looking forward. Our new identity represents the agility of our people and the innovative solutions we continue to bring to market.

Dalet Logo

Our new website offers a streamlined user experience and modern look and feel. It is the hub where media professionals can learn more about Dalet, interact with the team, and explore how our solutions can help them craft compelling stories, develop meaningful connections, and increase authentic engagement.

Our new identity and values – trusted conversations, confident simplicity, and human connections – are intertwined and embody what Dalet stands for.
