​Dalet Updates CubeNG For News Graphics Workflows

Dalet CubeNG leverages the Brainstorm real-time graphics engine to deliver 2D and 3D branding across broadcast, social and digital channels.

The graphics solution is already used by broadcasters including Euronews, Mediaset and Teleticino, and now features customizable work spaces that allow users to manipulate graphics in real time during a live show. The update also adds support for working across multiple sites to allow broadcasters to create distributed graphics workflows across all their centres of operation.

Dalet CubeNG capabilities, include:

  • Users can customize their playout workspace with curated graphic templates that can be triggered on the fly. This allows operators to interact with the live graphics to visually tell more complex stories, keeping audiences informed and engaged.
  • The new Dalet CubeNG quickplay shortcut lets users quickly trigger the playout of a CG.
  • Users can animate graphics like bar charts to show changes in election results over time or zoom in on a map to show exactly where a pandemic has spread. This visually summarizes detailed data and unknown reference points to simplify stories and keep audiences informed.

“Audiences depend on graphics to absorb key points of complex events such as pandemic data, elections or sports statistics. However, often you cannot script these stories in advance,” states Jérémy Krein, Product Manager, Dalet CubeNG. “Our latest release of Dalet CubeNG brings users time-saving tools to enhance unscripted live news with compelling graphics elements. Users can animate charts, maps and other elements on the fly, enhancing the overall news commentary. This type of interaction with graphics provides audiences with even more valuable information, thus engaging them at a deeper level.”
