Dalet gets IBC Innovation nomination

Dalet Digital Media Systems has been shortlisted for the IBC Innovation Awards 2010 in the Content Management category for its involvement with the Antena 3 Noticias project.

Antena 3 implemented Dalet Enterprise Edition to enhance the digital production capabilities and multi-platform distribution of its News operations. Designed on the principles of SOA, Dalet Enterprise Edition helped Antena 3 increase system interoperability and workflow flexibility, improving overall production efficiency.

Deployed in Madrid and at two locations on the Islas Canarias, Dalet Enterprise Edition unifies Antena 3 News production under one solution. More than 200 journalists can connect to Dalet Enterprise Edition simultaneously and access the full range of newsroom computer system (NRCS) functionalities and desktop production tools. The core Dalet workflow engine manages the entire production process from ingest and logging, to planning, to on-air playout. Based on open standards, Dalet Enterprise Edition integrates 3rd-party broadcast systems such as Final Cut Pro, Omneon, and Quantel, as well as Antena 3’s business management applications and Media Asset Management (MAM) system developed by its technology partner I+3 Television.

"It’s an honour to be a finalist for the IBC Innovation Award. This project goes well beyond broadcast. It demonstrates how open technology can provide a seamlessly integrated production platform that offers all the components for users to focus on their creative tasks; search tools, editing tools, scripting, graphics, etc.. With our new Dalet platform, we are able to produce more content for many different outlets better and faster," said José Maria Casaos, CTO for Grupo Antena 3.

"We are very proud to be recognised along with Antena 3. The IBC Innovation Awards are one of the industry’s top honours and we are pleased to have Dalet Enterprise Edition be in the running two consecutive years," commented Raoul Cospen, Director of Marketing, Dalet. "Antena 3 is known for their vision and leadership with regards to technology. With new business objectives in mind and the determination to be a multimedia company rather than a broadcaster, going to Dalet Enterprise Edition as the IT open software platform is a strategic move. It reflects well the trend of the entire industry; moving to open IT systems that are capable of delivering the objectives of today and tomorrow."
