Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced Dalet OnePlay, a new-generation studio automation solution designed to modernize live productions, increase audience engagement and open up new revenue opportunities while optimizing operational costs and reliability. Dalet OnePlay leverages the Dalet Galaxy five MAM, NRCS and workflow orchestration capabilities to enable more efficient and collaborative productions, as well as a more effective synchronized multi-platform distribution. “News and sports content producers are constantly challenged to deliver more content to more platforms in a shorter time, with the same resources, while ensuring consistency across delivery devices,” comments Raul Alba, Dalet product line manager. “ To succeed, they need reliable, highly efficient and flexible show production workflows. Dalet OnePlay helps meet those complex requirements while building a multi-platform experience around the show that will increase the engagement with your audience. A component of the Dalet Galaxy five platform, Dalet OnePlay leverages advanced data models and Dalet Workflow Engine-driven operations to sync distribution of specific content across many outlets.” Dalet OnePlay benefits any show production, from newscasts to sports magazines, as well as live and live-to-tape studio shows. Dalet OnePlay will be showcased at the upcoming IBC2018 exhibition held in Amsterdam from September 14–18, 2018 (stand 8.B77). IBC2018 attendees can book a private demonstration or workflow consultation with a Dalet expert to learn more about Dalet OnePlay and other Dalet solutions.   Modern UI, Better Collaboration and Workflow Orchestration Dalet OnePlay’s modern and efficient web-based UI, which runs both on desktop and tablet, offers an intuitive experience to control all core production device types, including video switchers and servers, cameras, audio mixing consoles, graphics, lighting, routers and more. “The innovative UI enables a unique mix of automated and manual workflows,” adds Alba. “Each editorial story is displayed in the form of a timeline that presents timed events that can run fully automated. In addition, users can add events to stories without timing information. These events can be controlled manually for playout and Dalet OnePlay will keep the log information about the manual operation for future use. This type of flexibility is useful for journalists or other staff who want to automate part of the workflow but allow the playout operator to manually control playout of specific events.” Further, Dalet OnePlay leverages the agile Dalet Galaxy five News Production and Workflow Orchestration capabilities to enable custom live production workflows with unrivaled operational flexibility that goes beyond traditional studio production. The unified solution gives way to collaboration between show preparation and production teams. “While Dalet OnePlay is designed as a single operator tool that minimizes the resources needed for managing live studio productions, the core platform agility of Dalet Galaxy five propels a ‘friction free’ collaborative workflow where workgroups can interact with the studio operation team to craft and perfect the show even as it airs,” states Alba. “This is especially important for audiences of live news and sports, where the story narrative is evolving and timely, detailed information spanning multiple screens is fast becoming a vital means of audience engagement.” Last but maybe one of the most important aspects is the native interactivity between Dalet OnePlay and the Dalet Workflow Engine. “This is a very unique and powerful point of the value proposition,” adds Alba. “It enables producers and editorial teams to associate rule-based automated processes as a macro or secondary-event of the show. This means they can schedule and automate social media posts or any custom distribution workflow, with any element of the library, in synchronization with the show. For instance, a post teasing audiences on social media before a guest comes in, or a trailer with the best actions of the last games before a sport magazine starts. The options are limitless and will really redefine how audiences can be engaged on many devices before, during and after your show!” For more information on Dalet OnePlay, please visit www.dalet.com/platforms/dalet-oneplay.   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.

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.
