Dalet, a French independent software vendor and leading provider of media management tools, today announced that the Arab Radio and Television (ART) network, the leading producer of premium Arabic family programming and entertainment worldwide, chose DaletPlus News Suite for its new sports channel newsroom.
Thanks to DaletPlus InterWeb, reporters throughout Iraq now have the ability to directly log into the DaletPlus News Suite newsroom computer system so as to browse incoming stories and contribute directly from the field.
This DaletPlus News Suite digital newsroom with integrated media asset management will be deployed in Jordan Media City in Amman, Jordan, with the cooperation of the Dalet local business partner, Mediators General Trading. Using DaletPlus News Suite, ART journalists will browse SNTV agency wire feeds, build rundowns, assign stories, write scripts with embedded Vizrt® computer generated graphics (CGs), and drive gallery devices during newscasts.
“We look forward to putting the DaletPlus News Suite digital newsroom to work,” explains Mr. Hassan Meiri, Director of Engineering at ART Jordan Media City. “Optimizing the use of on-air graphics in our newscasts is essential for our sports coverage and DaletPlus News Suite will truly empower our journalists to do so.”
