BUSINESS NEWS
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, has signed a landmark deal with a prominent North American broadcaster to build its next-generation, borderless multi-platform newsroom on Dalet Galaxy five. The broadcaster’s expansive operation is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service that includes four distinct traditional and digital news entities dedicated to delivering breaking news to more than 90 million homes. The digital transformation will leverage advanced Cloud and AI technologies and move all production and distribution operations to the cohesive Dalet Galaxy five platform, a unified Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial environment. Frederic Roux, vice president of sales, Americas, Dalet, comments on the multi-workflow advantages Dalet Galaxy five offers: “This particular news network is on air 24/7 and what they must deliver is far more diverse than straightforward news shows. They need to produce studio news programs and documentary-style shows, which are much closer to long-form programming workflows and often feature multi-camera productions. In addition, a new kind of storytelling is required when producing for OTT and digital, which adds complexity to the production chain.”  Roux continues, “Dalet Galaxy five is able to facilitate standard news, long-form programming and digital workflows simultaneously. The transition to the platform brings immense efficiency to the operation with limitless options to implement future workflows and iterate quickly with new, digital-first initiatives. The consolidation of systems required to drive these disparate workflows will also help optimize the total cost of ownership for the broadcaster. In this era of fast-changing news consumption behavior, our customers need an agile platform that can adapt quickly to their new business reality. This agility is inherent to the Dalet Galaxy five hybrid architecture.”  Based on a modern, video over IP infrastructure that uses the SMPTE 2110 standard, Dalet Galaxy five platform leverages the elasticity of the Cloud and offers federated production capabilities enabling the news network to effectively scale remote bureaus, field resources, and workflows at will. Cognitive services integrated with Dalet Galaxy five will accelerate the metadata enrichment of content archives making news assets easier to discover and readily available for creating deeper news stories across all platforms. Thanks to the hybrid architecture leveraging AWS, Dalet Galaxy five will provide native disaster recovery capability by offloading on-premise capacity to the Cloud when needed and processing scalability. “Today’s audiences crave more detailed news information on the viewing platform of their choice, especially for major sporting and political events,” adds Roux. “Broadcasters need a solution that enables them to deliver that deeper coverage whenever and wherever these events take place and create a content journey that engages audiences across all platforms. Dalet Galaxy five industry-leading remote access and editing provides a seamless news gathering and reporting experience enabling journalists to prepare robust multimedia stories whether they are in the newsroom or in the field on assignment.” Dalet Galaxy five will underpin the entire multi-platform production and delivery workflow, integrating key broadcast systems and propelling game-changing field and bureau workflows with a significantly improved remote editing user experience. Dalet Galaxy five’s orchestration capabilities will facilitate metadata-driven operations that automate complex media processes, distribute tasks and streamline workflows, simplifying the technical hurdles of media handling while simultaneously providing staff greater control over assets and monitoring capacities.

PRODUCT NEWS
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today that Teleticino and IB3 are revamping their broadcast graphics capabilities with the new Dalet CubeNG solution powered by the Brainstorm real-time graphics engine. An Italian-language television channel based in Switzerland, Teleticino provides news and entertainment programming for the Ticino canton region. IB3, public radio and television channel of the Balearic Islands in Spain, caters to local viewers’ traditional broadcast and digital platforms. A core component of the Dalet Galaxy five platform for news workflows, Dalet CubeNG enables Teleticino and IB3 to create dynamic branding that up-levels visual news narratives across traditional, digital and social channels.   “With news consumption growth across digital channels and audiences craving image-rich news stories, it’s critical that broadcasters have a connected premium graphics workflow that empowers journalists with tools to add engaging visuals that drive a consistent brand whether they are covering a breaking news event for primetime television or bringing viewers on a content journey across social platforms,” comments Jérémy Krein, Dalet CubeNG Product Manager, Dalet. “With graphics creation and delivery at the heart of the story-centric news workflow, Dalet CubeNG enables a seamless multimedia production experience that is a quantum leap ahead of its predecessor in terms of quality, features and performance. And it’s available today for our Dalet Galaxy five customers.” A major upgrade to the existing Dalet Cube graphics platform, Dalet CubeNG features a redesigned, highly scalable architecture and modern web-based UI. The embedded, high-performance Brainstorm real-time 3D graphics engine 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. Natively connected to Dalet Galaxy five, Dalet CubeNG propels fast-paced news workflows offering live changes on playback with advanced support for updating behaviors and conditions. Its simple-to-use toolset and templates foster rapid adoption across the newsroom, enabling broadcasters to scale the production and delivery of visually impactful, on-brand news packages across all traditional and digital channels. As the Dalet Galaxy five media asset management control layer tracks every graphic object, staff, including journalists, can search on any and every graphic element, making it easy to collaborate and repurpose material. The robust Dalet API enables extensible workflows and services that extend the graphics production and delivery capabilities. Krein elaborates on the need to have a tightly integrated graphics component, “Clients like Teleticino, who already rely on Dalet Galaxy five for editorial management and process orchestration realize the workflow advantages that seamless integration brings. Dalet CubeNG  eliminates the shortcomings of a multi-vendor graphics integration, facilitating full access and control over premium graphical elements within a workflow framework they are already familiar with. Further, as an existing customer, Dalet has an understanding of Teleticino specific needs which is combined with years of experience in designing solutions and workflows for global newsmakers. The combination of fully integrated premium graphics designed by a partner who understands your needs backed by decades of experience ensures a best of breed graphics workflow.”  Combined with Dalet Galaxy five, Dalet CubeNG offers a single-vendor solution that eliminates integration and deployment challenges and lowers cost of ownership.  For more information on Dalet CubeNG and other Dalet solutions, please visit https://www.dalet.com/cube About Dalet Digital Media Systems Dalet solutions and services enable media organisations to create, manage and distribute content faster and more efficiently, fully maximising the value of assets.

This means increased collaboration, quality and regularity to which we update our documentation. We have taken a fresh look at the information architecture and the way users access content, by looking at 3 key personas: developers, administrators and end users. To achieve this, we have created independent guides for configuring the platform, developing with the API/SDK, and using each application. Within these guides, a user can search, navigate, and identify the category their question fits into, speeding the route to the information required. Each section starts with a menu that targets hot topics and recent updates that highlights what functionality we, and you, get excited about. For any other feature, the release notes are all accessible.   Better navigation, faster results Delving into the guide, the reader will find that every article has its own helpful table of contents with anchored section titles. The “copy link” icon facilitates quick and easy sharing of content. So take a look at our new Knowledge Base, also available from the Ooyala Flex Media Platform landing page on dalet.com.
