Dalet has announced the future of the newsroom with the global premiere of Dalet Pyramid, its next-generation solution for Unified News Operations.
Dalet Pyramid accommodates both digital-first and linear end-to-end news workflows.
It also propels collaboration at the story-level with the industry’s first Storytelling 360 approach, letting users develop the various story angles required for digital, social, TV and radio simultaneously.
The flexible, subscription-based solution can run with a range of cloud providers, including AWS, on-premises, or a hybrid of both.
Customers looking for a SaaS option will benefit from having Dalet host, deploy and manage the solution, supporting the constant ebb and flow of resource fluctuations without increasing their capital investment.
“Combined with its digital-first and Storytelling 360 workflow capabilities, the solution will help transform the business of news production, setting a new bar for operational standards and efficiencies while opening doors to new revenue opportunities thanks to stronger digital and OTT workflows,” states Raoul Cospen, Director of Product Strategy, News at Dalet.
Dalet is inviting the media industry to experience Dalet Pyramid online at Dalet Connect and in-person at IBC2021.
“Dalet Pyramid builds on Dalet’s Unified News Operations where planning, content creation, asset and resource management, playout and multiplatform distribution have been combined into a single platform that enables production of fast-breaking, digital and live news, current affairs shows, and more,” states Raoul Cospen, Director of Product Strategy, News at Dalet.
“The new agile architecture design facilitates collaboration at story-level with the industry’s first Storytelling 360 approach and enables a truly virtual newsroom.
“Just like all Dalet offerings, Dalet Pyramid is a cloud-agnostic solution that supports multiple cloud providers, including industry leader Amazon Web Services.
“It can also run in virtualized environments, offering unprecedented mobility that supports the industry’s continued pivot to solutions designed to support remote productions.”
Dalet Pyramid’s purposeful user experience features the breadth and depth of news production, planning, distribution and playout tools to facilitate fast breaking news across all viewing platforms.
The modern, web-based user interface makes it easy to onboard staff and freelancers quickly, reducing training time. Users can contribute, produce and manage the full news story lifecycle from anywhere using smartphones, tablets and laptops connected to basic internet.
The underlying Dalet asset management and orchestration engine facilitates content flow from ingest through planning to distribution and archive.
