Dalet’s graphics solution for news workflows has been updated to enable users to manipulate graphics in real time during a live show.
Dalet CubeNG is fully integrated across Dalet Unified News Operations, and leverages the Brainstorm real-time graphics engine to deliver rich 2D and 3D branding as well as engaging visual storytelling across broadcast, social and digital channels.
The graphics solution is currently used by broadcasters including Euronews, Mediaset and Teleticino.
The update also adds support for working across multiple sites to allow broadcasters to create distributed graphics workflows across all their centres of operation.
All Dalet CubeNG capabilities, including the new features, are available both on-premises and in the cloud.
New features include:
- New customisable button boards: Users can customise their playout workspace with curated graphic templates that can be triggered on the fly. This allows operators to interact with the live graphics to visually tell more complex stories, keeping audiences informed and engaged.
- Computer graphics (CG) items can now have a shortcut ID: The new Dalet CubeNG quickplay shortcut lets users quickly trigger the playout of a CG.
- Trigger advanced interaction with graphics: Users can animate graphics like bar charts to show changes in election results over time or zoom in on a map to show exactly where a pandemic has spread. This visually summarises detailed data and unknown reference points to simplify stories and keep audiences informed.
“Audiences depend on graphics to absorb key points of complex events such as pandemic data, elections or sports statistics [but] you cannot script these stories in advance,” stated Jérémy Krein, product manager, Dalet CubeNG. “Our latest release of Dalet CubeNG brings users time-saving tools to enhance unscripted live news with compelling graphics elements. Users can animate charts, maps and other elements on the fly, enhancing the overall news commentary. This type of interaction with graphics provides audiences with even more valuable information, thus engaging them at a deeper level.”
