Dalet has announced Dalet Pyramid, its next generation solution for Unified News Operations.
Designed to accelerate the evolution of news organisations and serve distributed teams, Dalet Pyramid provides an integrated solution for news production, content management and multi-platform distribution, all accessible through a web-based user experience. Offered on a subscription basis, the solution can be natively deployed in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid configuration.
With Dalet Pyramid news producers can create content from anywhere for all audiences with sophisticated media asset management and orchestration powering all ingest, production, delivery and archive workflows. Propelling digital-first multiplatform workflows, the new solution is designed to offer remote workforces comprehensive editorial, graphics and distribution tools accessible from desktop and mobile devices.
“Editorial and production teams need to collaborate more efficiently on stories for all platforms from any location. Conversely, audiences love their news and want access on their favourite device, at all times,” said Raoul Cospen, director of product strategy, news at Dalet. “Tying your story line-up to a rundown limits production workflows and the efficiency for stories to be delivered across platforms. With more than two-thirds of newsrooms distributing content to an average of four platforms, it is a natural next step to refocus the newsroom away from rundowns and reimagine their operations. Dalet Pyramid gives news professionals the creative freedom to focus on the story, with collaborative tools and efficient resource planning to feed all audience platforms. It’s a holistic news experience that enables great storytelling.”
Cospen continued: “With Dalet Pyramid we have completely revamped the user workspace to offer an exceptional creative experience and all the conveniences you expect from a modern architecture including native-cloud support, configurable workflows, scalability, enterprise-level security, frequent feature updates and accessibility across devices. It’s one platform to serve your entire multichannel news operations.”
With Dalet Pyramid, production tasks such as ingest, scripting, audio and video editing, digital versioning and graphics are always connected to the story, enabling multi-user collaboration and speeding up news delivery to audiences. Advanced AI capabilities automate metadata tagging and provide real-time contextual recommendations, saving valuable time logging and searching content while optimising use of all relevant assets for editorial.
The intuitive configuration module and open APIs give greater control to system administrators, requiring less ramp-up time. Customers opting for cloud are said to benefit from flexibility and elasticity in managing resource fluctuations, with the ability to spin up additional seats when immediate user access is needed, without the need to increase capital investment.
Dalet Pyramid will be offered in a range of flexible business models, such as subscription and SaaS, enabling news organisations to calculate resource costs with precision.
