​Metro TV Adds Dalet To News

The Indonesian broadcaster upgrades its operations to HD and takes the chance to add key business intelligence reporting and news distribution to social media networks with Dalet Media systems.

Jakarta-based, 24/7 news broadcaster Metro TV has upgraded its news operations to the Dalet Galaxy platform. In addition, the new workflow includes one-click social media publishing; access to business intelligence reporting metrics, which measure both the performance of the facility and crews. It also includes measurement of the actual media consumption by the target audience across traditional and non-traditional channels such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube; and the latest version of the Dalet Newsroom Computer System (NRCS), which features some of the industry’s most advanced capabilities.

The Metro TV installation includes Dalet Galaxy native NRCS modules, Dalet WebSpace and Dalet On-the-Go for remote news production and team collaboration. It further includes Dalet OneCut multimedia desktop editor and Dalet Xtend for seamless integration of Adobe Premiere Pro in the news production chain; and the new Dalet Social Media panel for native social media curation and distribution. Content ingest and playout will be managed entirely by Dalet Brio video servers.

“This upgrade in operations to Dalet Galaxy is a significant step forward for Metro TV. In addition to moving to HD and improving our newsroom workflow with the new studios and NRCS, we can now realize our goals for social media distribution in a smarter and much more efficient way,” comments Mr. Mirdal Akib, CTO of Metro TV. “With Dalet Galaxy’s business intelligence reporting tools, we can better monitor our operation, making more informed decisions and tracking our production costs with better accuracy.”

“With the growing need to publish to a social media portal and fast shifting consumer habits, it’s critical to have a system in place like Dalet that can embed every aspect of the distribution portion of the production workflow. Being able to adapt the multiplatform publishing to the market demand is equally as important as managing fast distribution across multiple Twitter and Facebook accounts, and this is a strong focus for the project,” comments Raoul Cospen, General Manager, Asia Pacific, Dalet. “Another strong focus will be the business intelligence reporting that tracks production costs and thus brings real time visibility to management.”
