​Asia’s World Is One News Launches With Dalet

Zee Media’s Corporation World Is One News (WION) has launched with a Dalet asset management system. WION is the first broadcaster in India to deploy the Dalet Galaxy-based Unified News Operations workflow.

WION delivers news with a South Asian perspective to international audiences across the web, mobile devices and TV. Operated by Zee Media Corporation with headquarters in India and bureaus in 37 global locations, WION is the first India-based network to have a presence in the U.K., U.S., China, Russia and Africa.

An important aspect of the installation for WION was to enable journalists and producers to upload content from the field directly to the broadcaster’s customised Content Management System (CMS), an action that automatically creates planning events thanks to the Dalet Unified News Operations collaborative workflow.

Production tools via web-based Dalet WebSpace and relevant story content are available to every user in the newsroom and in the field. When WION journalists receive a notification about an assignment, they can search, browse and access every asset in the Dalet platform from their desktop, laptop or mobile device, whether it is news wires and footage, or existing stories and video packages. Its journalists use the Dalet On-the-Go mobile app to check assignments and create packages, exporting content to the CMS, as well as to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Video and scripts can be logged and edited within Dalet OneCut, or sent to Adobe Premiere via Dalet Xtend for craft editing. Media and associated metadata are tracked and managed by Dalet Galaxy including playlist export and import to and from the CMS. Once approved by a producer, final content is available for use in the built-in production control room automation and exported to the CMS as a multimedia story object.

The system integrates with WINBDL teleprompter, WASP graphics system and Quantum SNFS with NetApp E series storage.

“This installation is a perfect example of the Dalet Unified News Operations solution. Having the NRCS, the production tools and the archives fully integrated, along with a flexible workflow engine and web-services API, enables WION to truly implement a ‘digital first’ approach to deliver the right content, on the right device, to the right audience, ahead of the competition,”says Raoul Cospen, general manager of Dalet Asia Pacific. “Deployed in record time, the end-to-end workflow was on air within a few short weeks of signing the contract for Dalet Unified News Operations.”
