TV2000 has successfully deployed the Dalet News Suite solution for news production, broadcasting and web publication and Dalet Media Life to manage programme preparation. TV2000 is Italy’s primary television channel for news related to the Pope, the Vatican and the Catholic Church.
The Dalet system at TV2000 includes 45 workstations for news and 15 workstations for programme preparation. News content is broadcast live from three broadcast studios throughout the day. Four Dalet Brio video servers are configured for a total of eight inputs to handle SD-centralised ingest. These same Brio servers have 16 outputs, which are distributed among three different studios for playout and contribution. In addition, XDCAM and P2 imports modules allow users to import content from their Sony or Panasonic camcorders.
The Dalet MAM manages lifecycle media, essence and metadata management, and provides workflow orchestration. Dalet News Suite includes a complete Newsroom Computer System (NRCS) and tools for editing, ingest, playout, repurposing, multimedia distribution and archiving. Dalet Media Life includes fully integrated tools for functions such as bulk ingest, automatic QC, compliance and rough-cut editing, language/captioning and content repurposing.
Massimo Berardi, general manager, Dalet-Italy, commented: “All the toolsets for the unique tasks of each workflow, whether video production in news or QC and captioning in programme, are accessible to everyone who needs them. This enterprise approach offers great flexibility and a good return on investment and helps TV2000 to produce its high-quality content more quickly, more efficiently and for more platforms.”
