Dalet Inks Deal For Multi-Platform Newsroom With US Broadcaster

Dalet hasn’t got permission to name the North American broadcaster that bought into MAM platform Dalet Galaxy five. Nonetheless, the install is for a 24-hour news service delivering to more than 90 million homes.

The digital transformation will leverage Cloud and AI technologies and move all production and distribution operations to Dalet Galaxy five.

Frederic Roux, vp of sales, Americas, Dalet: “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.”

Based on a 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. Dalet says cognitive services integrated with 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.
