Who’s Getting A ‘Next Gen’ Newsroom From Dalet?


Broadcast tech company Dalet has signed what it is calling “a landmark deal with a prominent North American broadcaster” to build its next-generation, borderless multi-platform newsroom.

It will be constructed on the Dalet Galaxy five.

The broadcaster’s “expansive operation” is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service that includes, Dalet says, “four distinct traditional and digital news entities dedicated to delivering breaking news to more than 90 million homes.”

Dalet adds that the digital transformation “will leverage advanced Cloud and AI technologies and move all production and distribution operations to the cohesive Dalet Galaxy five platform, a unified Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial environment.”

“This particular news network is on air 24/7 and what they must deliver is far more diverse than straightforward news shows,” says Frederic Roux, VP/Sales for the Americas at Dalet. “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.”

Dalet Galaxy five is based on VOIP infrastructure that uses the SMPTE 2110 standard.
