Broadcasters Step into the Future with Dalet

Dalet Digital Media Systems says goodbye to the antiquated models of traditional Newsroom Computer System (NRCS), News Production System (NPS), and playout system and is offering broadcasters an agile foundation to step into the future of news production and delivery with its Unified News Operations (UNO) solution. UNO combines all the traditional functions of news production and distribution into a scalable, comprehensive, flexible and agile solution. Implemented by news organizations large and small across the globe, UNO enables broadcasters to rethink the way they work, deploy new collaboration models and build data-driven strategies, becoming more agile, more efficient and more effective to make the best of fast-changing audience viewing habits in a multi-platform world.

Dalet Digital Media Systems says goodbye to the antiquated models of traditional Newsroom Computer System (NRCS), News Production System (NPS), and playout system and is offering broadcasters an agile foundation to step into the future of news production and delivery with its Unified News Operations (UNO) solution. UNO combines all the traditional functions of news production and distribution into a scalable, comprehensive, flexible and agile solution. Implemented by news organizations large and small across the globe, UNO enables broadcasters to rethink the way they work, deploy new collaboration models and build data-driven strategies, becoming more agile, more efficient and more effective to make the best of fast-changing audience viewing habits in a multi-platform world.

“With so many platforms and outlets available to viewers today, news production tools and infrastructure need to be incredibly flexible and efficient in terms of content creation, curation, delivery and intelligence reporting if broadcasters want to achieve maximum engagement and retention. UNO is designed from the ground up to help news organizations do just that,” comments Dalet Director of Marketing Arnaud Elnecave. “Easy-to-use production tools AND relevant story content are readily available to every user in the newsroom and in the field. Web and social media are not treated as an afterthought – they are an integral part of the overall UNO methodology, from assignment all the way to distribution and analytics. These and other critical refinements offered through UNO, such as smart editorial planning and workflow orchestration, allow our customers to continuously improve the way they work to deliver the right content, at the right time, in the right form, on the right device, to the targeted audience.”

Elnecave adds, “And while functions co-exist within one ecosystem, UNO is not a closed solution. The unified, agile framework groups functions that naturally belong together, and exposes them via industry standard protocols and the advanced, open API, enabling media organizations to design customized, best-of-breed systems.”

Dalet has been highlighting that the very concept of “Newsroom Computer System” – inherited from the 90s system architectures and designed for linear programs – has become a technology and organizational silo that inhibits the leap most news organizations should take today. Indeed, as consumers are breaking free from the traditional news cycle, professional news productions – whether in broadcast, digital, paper or a combination thereof – need to up the ante and transform the way they operate in order to cater wisely and efficiently to this changing demand and the growing number of outlets to be served.

UNO Innovation at TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum

As the Title Sponsor for TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum, Dalet will present innovations in Unified News Operations at the upcoming opening session conference, “Imagining the Newsroom of the Future,” on December 12, 2016 in New York City. Joining Frederic Roux, US director of sales at Dalet, on the discussion is Hearst Television Chief Strategy Officer Roger Keating, W.E. Scripps VP of News Sean McLaughlin, and CJ&N VP of Digital Devices Steve Schwaid.

Real World Benefits for Newsrooms Large and Small

News organizations of all types and sizes – Euronews in Europe, NBC-owned and operated regional stations, Time Warner Cable’s Flagship NY1 station in New York City, Russia Today, Metro TV in Indonesia and the Record News regional stations in Brazil, to name a few – chose Dalet UNO as the partner and solution to enable the transition into the next generation of their operations.

One of the most recent news organizations to migrate to the UNO workflow, Euronews transformed its siloed operation, which consisted of productions in 13 different languages, into one cohesive workflow across multiple sites. Francois Schmitt, COO of Euronews, explains the benefit saying, “Dalet is providing an agile, cohesive system that bends with the ebb and flow of our newsroom needs. The unified platform provides centralized access to content, which is critical for each language to cross leverage for their own news purpose. Equally as important, the flow of content will be seamless and ubiquitous from acquisition to distribution to archive, making the Euronews operations much more efficient.” To learn more about the latest Dalet UNO installation, please visit https://www.dalet.com/news/euronews-selects-dalet-power-multilingual-news-outlet.

As one of the first adopters of the Dalet UNO framework, Time Warner Cable (TWC) is known for technology innovation in pursuit of “hyper-local” coverage at its news stations throughout New York State, northern New Jersey, Texas and the Carolinas. Credited with inventing the “one-man-band” reporter (journalists who shoot, write and edit their own stories), Time Warner Cable has always leveraged technology to improve efficiency.

The original installation at its flagship facility, NY1, was dependent on a mix of different systems covering ingest, news production, editing and automation. Moving to Dalet UNO gave the NY1 team a broad range of task-specific tools, allowing staff to ingest, assign stories, create packages, playout content to multiple platforms and archive video content – all from one user interface. Today, as NY1 continues to thrive, journalists can easily assemble a complete story that includes text, video, voiceovers and graphics right from their desktop in the newsroom or out in the field. Elnecave concludes, “Dalet UNO is not a bleeding edge concept; it’s a robust framework that is designed and proven to adapt to emerging technologies.”

New Dalet Cube NG Brings Advanced Broadcast Graphics to Dalet Unified News Operations
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today the release of its next generation platform for news graphics and workflows, Dalet CubeNG. Fully integrated across the Dalet Unified News Operations solution powered by Dalet Galaxy five, the state-of-the-art, full-featured Dalet CubeNG graphics platform leverages the industry-leading Brainstorm real-time graphics engine to deliver superior 2D and 3D branding and visuals. Suited for both on-air and file-based graphics creation, the Dalet CubeNG unified approach enables news broadcasters to easily create dynamic branding and up-level visual storytelling across traditional, digital and social channels. “Great graphics play a key role in impactful storytelling and deepening viewer engagement. The expansive capabilities of Dalet CubeNG powered by the Brainstorm graphics engine is a significant upgrade for what our Dalet Galaxy five news customers can achieve in terms of creating riveting visual narratives across all distribution channels,” comments Kevin Savina, Director of Product Strategy, Dalet. A major upgrade to the existing Dalet Cube graphics platform, Dalet CubeNG offers a redesigned, highly scalable architecture and modern web-based UI. The embedded, high-performance Brainstorm real-time 3D graphics engine significantly expands on-air and file-based graphics capabilities with its support for 4K and user-defined options, added primitives for building 2D and 3D graphics, support for Unicode fonts and languages, and outstanding transition logic. Noted news broadcasters that rely on the Brainstorm real-time graphics engine include CNBC, NHK, RAI, RTHK, RTVE, TVN and many others. “Brainstorm’s real-time graphics engine has proven its power, flexibility and reliability in hundreds of installations all over the world,” says David Alexander, Brainstorm’s Commercial Director. “And we are now very excited with this new opportunity, forging a long-term relationship with Dalet by working together to provide news broadcasters with state-of-the-art features and a very versatile toolset with the Brainstorm engine at the core of Dalet CubeNG. The ease, speed and flexibility of content creation offered by the new Dalet CubeNG, which are well recognised hallmarks of Brainstorm’s graphics engine, empower broadcasters with greater capabilities to better engage with their audiences and enhance the viewer experience with more visually attractive graphics and improved storytelling.” Feature highlights of the new Dalet CubeNG include: Advanced Materials and Objects – Thanks to the Brainstorm graphics engine, Dalet CubeNG supports a wide range of objects including spheres, curves and arrows with extensive control over parameters. It also includes a particle generator for creating visual effects such as fire, smoke, rain and more, and other special objects that can be dynamically linked to external data parameters. Font and Text Management – Dalet CubeNG offers full control over 2D and 3D text including size, texture, shading and mapping. It also includes support for Unicode fonts and a wide range of languages including Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Japanese, Korean and Thai. Format and Resolution Independent – Dalet CubeNG is resolution independent and supports HD, 2K, 4K, 8K, UHD and beyond, as well as digital and social graphics formats and workflows. Tweet to Graphics – No story is complete until it’s been posted on social; the moment users transform a tweet into a graphic, that graphic becomes an object within Dalet that journalists can either schedule in a production rundown or play out on-air with the news package. Ease-of-Use – Dalet CubeNG features simple-to-use tools and tight integration with Dalet Galaxy five that facilitate the adoption of graphics creation and use across the newsroom. Fully integrated with Dalet Galaxy five, Dalet CubeNG gives news broadcasters a complete solution for building impactful graphics to enhance a news story. Thanks to this native connection, changes to graphics can be made on playback, with advanced support for updating behavior and conditions. Users can add CG elements into the video project for either playout or burn-in, and graphics will trigger automatically at playout wherever the journalists placed CGs on the timeline. With total control of graphics playout with the on-air video operator, news teams can better allocate resources and improve operations all around. Dalet Galaxy five tracks every graphic object, allowing graphic designers, journalists, producers and other staff to search on any and every graphic element, making it easier than ever to repurpose graphics and objects, keeping a broadcaster’s brand consistent across all distribution outlets while maintaining efficiency.

ABS-CBN Expands News Workflow Capability with Dalet
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that Philippines media group ABS-CBN Corporation has deployed Dalet Unified News Operations powered by the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial platform, at its regional Cebu City station. The turnkey news solution deployed by Dalet enables the broadcaster to break news faster and offers the agility to expand seamlessly to support multi-site workflows. ABS-CBN Corporation, headquartered in Quezon City, is the Philippines' largest entertainment and media conglomerate by revenue, assets, and number of employees. The group owns and operates the ABS-CBN television network which includes the flagship national channel ABS-CBN as well as regional radio networks. An existing Dalet customer, the ABS-CBN group invested in Dalet in 2008 to manage the facility-wide media asset management and archiving workflow which resulted in the digitization of 21-years’ worth of material. The investment also enabled ABS-CBN to add new media channels for web and mobile TV. The new Dalet deployment upgrades the broadcaster’s Cebu news production capabilities and lays the foundation for further strategic enhancements. “Previously, we had no studio automation at our Cebu City station and were laying programs to tape for playout with no ability to save news programs. We needed to move to a solution that would automate our workflows, better support our social channels and enable future expansion,” explains Leilani Alba, Station Head for ABS-CBN Cebu. “Backed by 10 years’ of trust and collaboration with Dalet we knew we could rely on their proven technology and professional services for this important project. With Dalet, we have transformed and simplified our operations by moving to a single solution that manages the end-to-end production and playout of news. We are already seeing the value of our assets increase by being able to track and gather metadata at all points across the news story development.” The Dalet Unified News Operations solution is powered by the market-leading Dalet Galaxy five platform. The built-in Dalet NRCS functionality includes agency wire acquisition, collaborative planning, script editing, notifications and approval processes, rundown and graphics management with full timing control, and many other features. Designed for journalists, the embedded Dalet OneCut multimedia editor enables easy and fast news editing at every desktop. The Dalet AmberFin media processing farm transcodes any incoming content into the mezzanine format, making it immediately available for use across the station. Dalet Brio video servers deliver rock-solid performance and high-density ingest and playout. “Designed as a fully packaged, end-to-end, newsroom solution, Dalet Unified News Operations offers tremendous value to ABS-CBN. They can now break news faster thanks to a streamlined, fully integrated and automated news workflow. In addition, ABS-CBN can amplify their social media and digital output to meet the needs of new audiences,” says Cesar Comacho, general manager, Dalet Asia Pacific. “ABS-CBN has a platform they can grow with and realize future ambitions, including connection to its main hub and regional radio networks. Since the system fully supports HD from ingest to playout, the infrastructure is ready for them to transition.” Comacho concludes, “The ease of deployment and the excellent working relationship we have is reflected in the fact that we were able to get the Cebu newsroom up running in just two months.” Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that Philippines media group ABS-CBN Corporation has deployed Dalet Unified News Operations powered by the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial platform, at its regional Cebu City station.

Dalet Accelerates News Delivery for Times Network
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that Times Network, India’s leading broadcast network, has deployed the Dalet Galaxy media asset management (MAM) and workflow orchestration platform to optimize content utilization and accelerate delivery for its 24/7 news channel “Times NOW”. With a global presence across 100 countries, Times Network houses upscale brands including TIMES NOW, ET NOW, Mirror NOW, Movies NOW & Movies NOW HD, MN+, Romedy NOW & Romedy NOW HD, MNX & MNX HD and Zoom, each of which informs, entertains and engages viewers. “Times Network is the leading broadcast network in India,” states K Yegneshwara Iyer, Senior Vice President & Head of Technology, Times Network. “To sustain this momentum and always be the first to break news, we moved to adopt a platform that could digitalize the archives as well as integrate our media silos, ultimately managing the entire media supply chain for the Times Network. Dalet was the best partner for this mission. Their platform allows us to bring all our content into one place and create seamless access for our users, with tools and intelligence to manage multiple workflows across several locations and business units.” By connecting siloed production and post-production teams and systems across Mumbai and Delhi, Dalet Galaxy enables a comprehensive workflow transformation that gives “Times NOW” a first-to-air breaking news workflow that encompasses the complete story. Key to the transformation was the digitization and integration of Times Network archives. No longer do staff need to manually review archive logs, request media from the archivist, and wait for the content to complete the story. Dalet WebSpace provides immediate access to all content with tools to assemble stories that contain a mix of freshly shot and archival media. With archives fully integrated and digitized, the “Times NOW” archivists are freed from manual search and retrieval of taped media. They can focus their time on enriching the digital content with metadata, making it more searchable and accessible across the entire group. This creates a fluid content supply chain that optimizes content usage, ultimately helping Times NOW journalists enhance their storytelling. “More than creating a friction-free workflow for breaking news, Dalet Galaxy is enabling Times Network to move away from a pay-per-month archive digitization process to a fully owned and managed digital workflow that optimizes content utilization. This is a business benefit that enables them to be more systemic in the way they manage and distribute their content across the entire business operation,” states Johann Zemmour, General Manager, Dalet APAC and EMEA. <iframe width="100%" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NXYKmB-aZuE" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> See Dalet at BroadcastAsia 2019 BroadcastAsia 2019 attendees can book a meeting to see Dalet solutions in action in Singapore on stand 4T4-01.

Dalet’s New Social Media Capabilities are Trending for News Pros
The massive amount of content available to journalists on social media is both a gift and a curse. The ‘wisdom of the crowds’ scenario on social media platforms provides journalists a wealth of real-time commentary on what is - to the digital majority - top breaking news and hot topic trends. News pros can leverage these trending topics to quickly tap into and engage with audiences on what is important to them at that very moment. Great, right? Not exactly. The downside: There has been no effective way to methodically aggregate, harvest, and easily utilize this social media content for a 360-news narrative. It’s a painful manual process to download social content, bring into your MAM, log it and then utilize key pieces for your story. That is, until NAB 2019... Leveraging social media in evolving narratives The Dalet Galaxy five Social Media Framework new “Aggregator Panel,” which made its debut at NAB 2019, solves this obstacle for storytellers who want to leverage social commentary for their evolving narratives. Journalists can set the Dalet Social Media Framework Aggregator Panel to follow any number of topics. The Dalet system will automatically compile - in real time - a running list of the tagged social media posts. Users can easily browse posts and select to download only those posts that are relevant to their story. Behind the scenes, metadata is automatically extracted and indexed in the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog. The intuitive dashboard lets users neatly organize multiple social media storylines. Simple drag and drop of content into carts lets users quickly reutilize posts in breaking stories. Thanks to the underlying Dalet Workflow Engine, the newsroom can automate workflows such as turning social posts into ready-to-air CGs and graphics, making it easy to reutilize content over multiple platforms quickly. <iframe width="100%" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/D-tqWCz8geU" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> In most newsroom environments today, the news producer typically does not have much visibility into what is happening on the digital side of the operation. In a similar scenario, the digital team typically has difficulties accessing the assets including video, images, and scripts that have been created by the producer and news staff. The new Aggregator Panel provides a bridge between these two worlds. More than managing the social media bits in a way that can be used within the story quickly and easily, the new Aggregator Panel gives the newsroom a direct window into the social media world and beyond and digital teams access to the valuable assets being developed in the newsroom. Hello (collaborative) social media workflows The Dalet Galaxy five platform allows both groups to share assets and tools, essentially, creating an entire collaborative social media- friendly workspace. The beauty of the new Dalet Aggregator Panel is that it captures a social post so that content itself is available for production immediately within the collaborative space. Journalists can set the Dalet Social Media Aggregator Panel to follow any number of topics. Simple drag and drop of posts lets users quickly share and reutilize content in breaking stories. That video that is downloaded with the Dalet Aggregator Panel, is not just ‘downloading.’ Dalet recognizes it’s associated to a tweet and transcodes it into a mezzanine format with the correct aspect ratio for production. It automatically places it in the storage system with the metadata form filled out. For the users, it's just a drag-and-drop of the tweet. On the back end, Dalet Galaxy five does all of the heavy lifting. The user can just open it in Dalet OneCut or another editor and start working. The feature is called ‘Tweet to Edit’! It’s the same process for the creation of the graphic. As soon as you transform a tweet into a graphic, that graphic becomes an object within Dalet that you can either schedule in your production rundown or you can play it out on air with your news package. And of course, this is called ‘Tweet to Graphics’. While the Dalet Galaxy five Social Media Framework is great for journalists to publish their social media content, your digital teams may already use another social media management platform. However, for the digital teams, Dalet Galaxy five Social Media Framework does solve a big pain point, and that is efficiency in planning. Many digital teams manage planning using a shared Word or Excel type of document. This static approach provides no insight into the overall newsroom planning. With Dalet Galaxy five and the new Aggregator Panel, digital teams can plan with a full view of the newsroom activities and access to all content, including the harvested social assets.

Dalet Introduces Game-Changing Remote Editing Framework at NAB 2019
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, will showcase its new Dalet Remote Editing framework at NAB 2019 (booth SL6610). The highly scalable framework brings the full-featured multimedia editing capabilities and speed to the editors working in the field or at remote offices without requiring a PAM/MAM at every location. Media organizations in fast-paced production markets such as news, sports and reality TV often have extensive in-the-field production needs that are critical to their business. Unmitigated access to content located at the central hub and accelerated media exchange from the field to home and back are paramount for success. The Dalet Remote Editing framework securely connects journalists, producers, editors and other content creators to the central content hub, enabling the in-the-field/remote users to edit, assemble, collaborate and quickly submit packages or download high-resolution media to finalize locally even in low-bandwidth situations. The first release of the new Dalet Remote Editing framework will support Dalet OneCut natively with subsequent updates supporting Dalet Xtend-compatible third-party editing applications. “With the Dalet Remote Editing framework, video editors located just about anywhere have the same robust editing experience as those editors located within the four walls of the central hub, even when they have a degraded network connection,” states Golan Tsarfaty, editing product line manager, Dalet. “Most Dalet customers want to centralize content resources in the main hub yet have a local presence via their remote bureaus, freelancers or simply people working in the field. This new Remote Editing framework provides a gateway to optimize content sharing across multiple locations without requiring the deployment of a MAM or PAM beyond the central hub.” The Dalet Remote Editing framework leverages the AWS infrastructure and Dalet smart-caching technology to eliminate problematic security, latency and other roadblocks that usually limit remote productions, transforming the entire in-the-field video editing experience and workflow for both users and media companies. “It solves two key issues. First, it offers a high-quality user experience when editing content from anywhere; and second, it simplifies the network configurations and infrastructure management for access to central content by remote users,” Tsarfaty adds. “It’s an incredible technical innovation that is going to help our customers make a quantum leap forward with regards to mobility at work, remote productions and working with freelancers.” Dalet Remote Editing framework workflows shown at NAB 2019 At NAB 2019, Dalet will demonstrate how the new editing framework lets journalists working in the field share with the central hub content they’ve captured locally, via a secure HTTPS Internet connection. Simultaneously, they will show how journalists preparing a story while on the go can preview and pull in content from the central catalog or the archive, and mix it with locally captured footage, using a stand-alone editor. In addition to the in-the-field journalist workflow, Dalet teams will demonstrate the efficient cross-site video editing and collaboration capabilities the new framework brings for content exchange between bureaus and sites. “One of the big challenges media organizations faced in enabling a proper in-the-field/remote editing workflow was the costly and somewhat limiting infrastructure available to them,” Tsarfaty explains. “Dedicated hardware, added layers of security for accessing the central hub, and VPN scenarios limited the ability to deploy truly robust remote production workflows and scale at will. These typical setups also hindered the user collaboration and overall experience as you still experienced latency and access issues. With Dalet Remote Editing, there is no overhead. You can scale your productions as you need, pay for infrastructure as you go, and offer the video editing experience your staff requires to create outstanding content, efficiently and quickly, from anywhere. NAB Show attendees will be able to see how this is done right on the Dalet booth.” NAB 2019 attendees can book a private demonstration or workflow consultation with a Dalet expert to learn more about the new Dalet Galaxy five remote editing framework at: https://www.dalet.com/events/nab-show-2019 Dalet Press Briefings at NAB 2019 To schedule a press briefing with Dalet, please contact Alex Molina.

Euronews and Dalet Nominated for the IBC2018 Innovation Award
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today that they have been shortlisted alongside Euronews for the IBC2018 Innovation Awards content creation category. Lauded as one of the most coveted awards in the media industry, the competitive competition celebrates technical and creative excellence, acknowledging collaboration between organizations like Euronews and Dalet to achieve clever and innovative solutions for real business challenges. “We are honored to be nominated for the IBC2018 Innovation Award with our technology partner Dalet,” says Francois Schmitt, COO, Euronews. “With the help of Dalet and our other partners, we were able to achieve our vision and become the world’s first truly ‘Glocal’ news channels, providing our audiences important global headlines with perspectives and viewpoints relevant to their regions, cultures and communities. We thank the IBC Innovation Award judges for recognizing this incredible technical feat and Dalet for working alongside with us on this exciting journey." Euronews had been addressing the region’s need for multilingual programming by providing a single channel of news programming with identical video and English-only graphics delivered to countries with 12 different language versions. Groundbreaking when Euronews had originally launched in 1993, the “Multiplex” approach to broadcasting lacked the ability to adapt programming to the specific needs of individual countries, a limitation for today’s viewers who crave customized content. With multiculturalism as a core value, management sought to better connect global content with local audiences, transforming Euronews into a “Glocal” media brand. “This project perfectly coincides with Dalet’s values of innovation, passion, and multiculturalism,” comments Johann Zemmour, general manager, EMEA & APAC at Dalet. “Collaborating with the same ideals and vision, we were able to leverage the advanced media asset management and orchestration capabilities of the Dalet Galaxy platform to construct one of the world’s most technically advanced newsrooms, empowering Euronews journalists to collaborate and turn any local or global topic into compelling news stories with perspectives and insights that resonate with their respective audiences.” The legacy Euronews infrastructure had limited news to a “one-size-fits-all” with journalists relying on technicians to package non-localized news story with 11 voice-overs. The lack of system integration pushed news air times to an hour or more. To transform the operation, Euronews implemented Dalet’s component-based workflow powered by the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management and Orchestration platform, featuring federated editorial tools that empower the 500 journalists and a workflow engine that maximizes and automates complex, custom content delivery operations. The successful Euronews transformation, which saw no change in staff, increased television content production by 100%, feeding its newly launched 12 individual channels fresh content with a local perspective. It also increased Euronews digital content output by 20%, growing its online audiences by 66%. “We are incredibly proud that the Euronews project has been shortlisted for an IBC Innovation Award and want to extend our appreciation to our technical partners on the project, PEAKS, who we collaborated with closely to bring the Euronews vision to life, and Adobe,” adds Zemmour. Technical project partner PEAKS provided a total redesign of the Euronews website and Dalet Galaxy integrated CMS to achieve a true 360° Newsroom that can produce up to 350 stories a day, reaching more than 13.5 million digital-users. To learn more about Dalet and Euronews, please download the customer story and watch the video at: https://www.dalet.com/customer-stories/euronews. You can also visit Dalet at IBC2018 on stand 8.B77.

Chilean Broadcaster Mega TV Deploys Dalet Unified News Operations
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today that Chilean Broadcaster Mega TV is revamping its operations with the Dalet Unified News Operations solution powered by Dalet Galaxy, the leading Media Asset Management (MAM), Orchestration and Editorial platform for news production and distribution. Key to the decision is the agility of the Dalet platform and its ability to meet the future requirements of Mega TV, supporting traditional as well as new-generation digital and social media news production and distribution workflows. A Dalet customer since 2012, Mega TV is one of Latin America’s highest-flying free-to-air broadcast networks and the first private broadcaster in Chile. Headquartered in Santiago, the channel is among the country’s most watched with its line-up of sitcoms, magazine shows and daily news shows including “Ahora Noticias.” “We are keen to expand our footprint and to better engage audiences with the best news content across all possible viewing and listening platforms,” explains Saúl Ureta, technical manager for Mega TV. “As we seek to grow our broadcast portfolio we were faced with a strategic decision. Do we work with independent production and post-production systems which might create silos in our workflow, or do we plan for the future and build a collaborative and highly efficient workflow for news that spans across all our channels? Our experience with Dalet convinced us that the platform was able to evolve and meet all our new requirements by accommodating many different operating and organizational models, latest standards & content formats, as well as a wide palette of integrations and connectors. The Dalet Unified News Operations solution in particular offers a much more fluid way of working as well as integrated tools for remote production and collaboration. The solution also comes with a full social media framework that empowers our teams to better engage with their audiences on social media as part of their everyday workflow.” The comprehensive solution will be implemented together with Dalet business partner Zer Digital. Dalet Unified News Operations not only replaces Mega TV’s existing newsroom computer system and news production system, it will bring a number of new tools and collaborative processes. Journalists, reporters and producers will be able to share assignments, stories and any assets, accessing a single system and toolset via configurable workspaces. Dalet WebSpace and the Dalet On-the-Go mobile app extend capabilities into the field, allowing authorized users to be part of connected workflows. The broadcaster will also leverage Dalet’s Social Media framework and award-winning Dalet Social Media Panel to harvest, plan, produce and deliver content efficiently to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, while gathering more data about the audiences and their engagement. Dalet Brio is core to the solution’s ingest and playout transactions of live news shows. The Dalet AmberFin media processing platform will be used for high-quality transcoding. Content packages will be crafted on Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC. The Adobe application is brought seamlessly into the collaborative workflow via Dalet Xtend. All of these are native or tightly coupled components controlled and orchestrated by Dalet Galaxy, which integrates with Mega TV’s content management system. “Continuing and enhancing our five-year old partnership with Mega TV is significant not just to support the development of their operations and business, but also for Dalet’s growing footprint and reputation within the wider South American market,” comments Julien Decaix, general manager Americas, Dalet. “Mega TV has fully demonstrated its ambition to be a forward-thinking and innovative broadcaster. Dalet is proud to be a strategic technical partner in this endeavor. In just about every country on the continent from Colombia to Brazil, Dalet is excited to be making inroads as a growing number of leading broadcasters choose to deploy Dalet’s future-proof solutions over boxed products in order to facilitate a more comprehensive digital transformation.” About Dalet Digital Media Systems Dalet solutions and services enable media organizations to create, manage and distribute content faster and more efficiently, fully maximizing the value of assets.

Major US News Network Moves to Dalet Unified News Operations Workflow
Dalet announced today that a leading US news broadcaster has signed a large-scale, multi-site deal to migrate all of its regional news stations to the Dalet Unified News Operations workflow powered by Dalet Galaxy. The state-of-the-art solution will offer every station a centralized content repository natively accessible by the suite of user-friendly production and distribution tools. The connected, friction-free Unified News Operations workflow will provide faster and better content production and ultra-easy distribution for broadcast, web (CMS) and social outlets alike. Once this first phase is completed, all sites will be standardized on the same technology platform, setting a robust and open foundation for future multi-site federation and collaboration. “This latest win comes on the heels of several sizeable US, European and Asia Pacific deals, confirming that the Dalet Unified News Operations workflow is meeting and exceeding the expectations of some of the most demanding news broadcasters around world,” states Arnaud Elnecave, VP of marketing, Dalet. Replacing a legacy system built on three separate platforms, Dalet’s end-to-end, story-centric approach to news production, along with conveniences such as one-click social media distribution, are necessary capabilities to tackle new business challenges. Elnecave adds, “The agility and flexibility of the Dalet Unified News Operations workflow gives news directors and producers the ability to continuously refine content strategies and operational processes, ultimately transforming their news operation to satisfy new viewer consumption trends and seize new business opportunities.” Breaking down silos, Dalet solutions for unified news operations will connect the broadcaster’s disparate regional bureaus, bringing field journalists into the virtual newsroom through robust web and mobile apps.

WION - World Is One News - Launches Globally with Dalet
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, today announced that World Is One News (WION), the youngest venture of Zee Media Corporation, launched WION underpinned by Dalet Unified News Operations. The Dalet solution is powering and supporting the international news channel with comprehensive media logistics, newsroom computer system and news production workflow facilitated by the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and orchestration platform, with full ingest and playout operations relying on Dalet Brio video servers. WION delivers path-breaking news coverage from across the globe with a South Asian perspective to international audiences across the web, mobile devices and TV. Operated by Zee Media Corporation with headquarters in India and bureaus in 37 global locations, WION is the first India-based network to have a presence in the U.K., U.S., China, Russia and Africa, making it South Asia’s first truly convergent, multi-media English news network. A critical aspect of the installation for WION was to enable journalists and producers to upload content from the field directly to the broadcaster’s customized Content Management System (CMS), an action that automatically creates planning events thanks to the Dalet Unified News Operations collaborative workflow. “Our philosophy of ‘being one with the world’ holds that news is the common thread that binds us all together and makes critical the ability to deliver news in the moment, from anywhere to any channel,” says WION Editor-in-Chief Mr. Rohit Gandhi. “We sought and found a partner in Dalet to provide the backbone to our network-wide news infrastructure. The solution not only accelerates time to air but enables better collaboration with a highly efficient and agile set of tools, from remote content creation to centralized content curation and onwards to publication on the digital and TV platforms our audiences are choosing.” WION is the first broadcaster in India to deploy the Dalet Galaxy-based Unified News Operations workflow. Easy-to-use production tools via web-based Dalet WebSpace and relevant story content are readily available to every user in the newsroom and in the field. When WION journalists receive a notification about an assignment, they can search, browse and access every asset in the Dalet platform from their desktop, laptop or mobile device, whether it is news wires and footage that just came in, or existing stories and video packages. Beyond the walls of the newsroom, WION journalists use the Dalet On-the-Go mobile app to check assignments and create packages, exporting content to the CMS, as well as to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Video and scripts can be logged and edited within Dalet OneCut, or sent to Adobe Premiere via Dalet Xtend for craft editing. Media and associated metadata are tracked and managed by Dalet Galaxy every step of the way, including playlist export and import to and from the CMS. Once approved by a producer, final content is readily available for use in the built-in production control room automation and exported to the CMS as a multimedia story object. Beyond the comprehensive set of tools and services natively built into Dalet Galaxy, the advanced web-services API integrates and unifies the full ecosystem of technologies and in-house tools used at Zee WION, including the custom CMS based on Kentico that drives workflows within the Dalet solution. Other integrations include WINBDL teleprompter, WASP graphics system and Quantum SNFS with NetApp E series storage. “This installation is a perfect example of the Dalet Unified News Operations solution. Having the NRCS, the production tools and the archives fully integrated, along with a flexible workflow engine and web-services API, enables WION to truly implement a ‘digital first’ approach to deliver the right content, on the right device, to the right audience, ahead of the competition,” says Raoul Cospen, general manager of Dalet Asia Pacific. “Deployed in record time, the end-to-end workflow was on air within a few short weeks of signing the contract for Dalet Unified News Operations.” For more information, please visit Dalet at www.dalet.com About Dalet Digital Media Systems Dalet software-based solutions enable media organizations to create, manage and distribute content faster and more efficiently, fully maximizing the value of assets.

Euronews Selects Dalet to Power Multilingual News Outlet
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, today announced that Euronews has signed a contract for a Dalet news solution to facilitate production and playout of its linear and non-linear products. Operating as one channel that broadcasts in 13 languages, Euronews will use Dalet to meet the needs of the Euronews' group development. The sizeable installation will support 200 simultaneous users and feature all three Dalet technology platforms – Dalet Galaxy (media logistics/asset management), Dalet AmberFin (media orchestration/processing) and Dalet Brio (I/O environment) across several sites. “Today, we have various components that are ‘glued’ together using our own internal tools. It is not efficient in terms of dealing with the various languages, supporting special productions and tracking important asset metadata. It also does not support the transformation of our workflows,” comments François Schmitt, COO, Euronews. “Dalet is providing an agile, cohesive system that bends with the ebb and flow of our newsroom needs. The unified platform provides centralized access to content, which is critical for each language to cross leverage for their own news purpose. Equally as important, the flow of content will be seamless and ubiquitous from acquisition to distribution to archive, making the Euronews operations much more efficient.” Euronews's sister channel, Africanews recently installed a Dalet solution for their news operations, achieving a fluid operation that gives Euronews the confidence to choose Dalet technical capabilities and experience in news workflows. Dalet beat out industry brands Quantel and Avid to win the deal. “Dalet pioneered the integrated newsroom system almost a decade ago and is able to offer a very advanced, yet mature platform with skilled technologists who have vast experience in deploying systems both small and large,” comments Stephane Schlayen, COO, Dalet. “Our Galaxy platform enables customers to unify the traditional newsroom siloes of NRCS, NPS (News Production Systems) and MAM delivering a solid foundation for the business of modern news.” Once deployed, the unified production will offer federated tools standardizing ingest, logging editing, graphics, planning and distribution across all Euronews' products, with the Dalet Workflow Engine to automate and orchestrate complex workflows and data migrations. Dalet APIs will integrate the wide-range of in-house tools including the custom-built CMS. The flexible architecture combined with centralized content repository will allow Euronews to better manage the multi-site workflows planned for four different offices (Lyon, Brussels, Athens and Budapest). Schmitt adds, “Not only did we need better integration across our facility, we needed a way to connect our independent journalists out in the field to what was happening in the newsroom. Dalet WebSpace brings them into our news operations, offering all the necessary tools and access to the central repository and archives to build their own story from anywhere in the world.” Other must-have capabilities included Dalet OneCut with local proxy editing, Dalet Cube burn-in graphics control, and the ability to do voiceovers with Dalet WebSpace in the field.
