Dalet is introducing a mobile app for journalists in the field to stay fully connected to a newsroom running Dalet News Suite. They can use the app with their mobile devices to perform a number of tasks - from catching up on a breaking story or checking assignments to contributing stories, videos, audio and images back to their Dalet newsroom. The Dalet On-the-Go app is available shortly and initially supports iOS devices. It provides three primary functions: Read-In, My Assignments and Contribution. Read-In allows users to browse and search with keywords and get updates on the latest news from wires and stories, including items embedded inside these stories. Users can just click to access available audio or video. The My Assignments function allows reporters to check their individual assignments for a given day as well as related details such as metadata and media associated with those tasks. The Contribution page allows users to upload stories, videos, images and audio directly from their iOS device to their Dalet home site. “Dalet On-the-Go is a logical progression in making media and information available to Dalet users wherever they are,” said Raoul Cospen, marketing and business development, Dalet. “This app provides the immediacy and collaboration that are so important in fast-paced news operations.” Adrian Pennington www.dalet.com
