Dalet News Suite Powers TVOne

Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software to provide audio and video content, has announced the installation of Dalet News Suite at tvOne, the Jakarta-based 7/24 news and sports station.
tvOne switched to the 7/24 news and sports format back in February 2008; increasing the total number of viewers by covering late-breaking news and popular events on both national and global forums.
To support the programming switch, station management added journalists and sports personalities as well as digitalised the entire production and playout infrastructure with Dalet News Suite. The new file-based Dalet workflow is pivotal in tvOne's fast-paced news production.
Ferry Aryanto, IT Manager at tvOne, said: "Dalet News Suite is at the core of our news production, from scripting, to editing and playout to archiving. Journalists like the unified, end-to-end workflow; they write stories, preview, select and edit their video and even record voiceovers right at their desktops.
"Producers can continually update the rundown, confident that Dalet News Suite is syncing the last minute changes with the playout server."
Dalet News Suite runs on the purpose-built Dalet media asset management platform, DaletPlus. Integrated production and playout capabilities combined with the DaletPlus best of breed file migration and conversion technology offer tvOne an optimal end-to-end media sharing workflow. The installation done by the Dalet Professional Services team enabled tvOne to execute their programme format change on an extremely short timeline.
Arnaud Elnecave, General Manager of Dalet Singapore, said: "The DaletPlus media asset management engine provides a proven platform for highly collaborative and demanding workflows such as news and sports. Our Dalet Professional Services team is quite experienced working with journalists, news directors and IT managers to customise the DaletPlus engine and News Suite capabilities to fully optimise the production and playout pipeline according to customer requirements."
The tvOne facility is equipped with more than 30 Dalet workstations connected via Gigabit Ethernet with a 10TB NetApp device for production storage. Six Dalet Ingest workstations handle incoming video feeds as well as ingest from Panasonic P2 cameras used in field reporting. Other Dalet workstations are used for rundown management, writing text and video production.
The majority of the daily news video editing is done at the desktop with Dalet MediaCutter. For the more advanced, promotional editing, Dalet provides easy exchange with Apple Final Cut Pro systems. Native integration with an Omneon Spectrum Media Deck enables precise control over production playout.
Dalet also provides seamless integration with the teleprompter and Orad graphics system as well as the station's Xendata archive system.
