BBC Northern Ireland (BBC NI) has installed Dalet Radio Suite for the production, playout and distribution capability of its radio operation, in an upgrade completed in March this year. The new solution is used at production hubs in Belfast and Londonderry by more than 200 staff.
“The fresh rollout of Dalet software and the new infrastructure have enabled BBC NI radio production teams to advance to the latest workstation operating systems and also move to higher quality linear audio without disruption to their established operations,” explained Chris Wright, general manager, Dalet UK. “Radio Suite users also benefit from Dalet Onecut, an advanced audio editor that includes effects and supports multiple audio formats. Radio Suite’s desktop production and on-air tools provide all they need to record or import audio files, edit complete packages, and build the cart walls and rundowns needed in the studios.”
Dalet Radio Suite is a production, playout and distribution system designed to streamline the digital production chain for news and music channels, helping stations optimise their programming for over-the-air broadcasts as well as streaming, podcasts, DAB and other platforms.
The system operates with any kind of audio format and supports an array of functionality from editing, ingest, mix editing, selectable PPM metering standards and automated media distribution with associated PAD data in multiple formats. Dalet Radio Suite’s centralised MAM content catalogue manages all programs and associated data.
