​Euronews Selects Dalet for Multi-Site Workflow

Euronews is installing Dalet asset management and media processing solutions at its Lyon headquarters and to manage workflows planned for four offices in Brussels, Athens and Budapest.

The 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,” explains François Schmitt, COO, Euronews. “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. Dalet 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 its news operations beating SAM and Avid to win the deal, said Dalet.

“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 standardize ingest, logging, editing, graphics, planning and distribution across all Euronews' products. The Dalet Workflow Engine will 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 install will allow Euronews to better manage the multi-site workflows planned for four different offices (Lyon, Brussels, Athens and Budapest).

“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,” adds Schmitt. “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.
