Dalet has made major usability improvements to its On-the-Go mobile app for smartphones and tablets as well as the underlying Dalet Galaxy five news production and distribution platform.
According to the company the mobile app can boost the collaborative experience between remote journalists and the newsroom with advanced content contribution and remote planning capabilities via a new interface.
Advancements to Dalet Galaxy five news include remote editing features like cloud-based ‘edit while record’, and support for modern open-source communications frameworks to accelerate secure content exchange across multisite and distributed newsrooms operations. Dalet Galaxy xCloud, the dedicated, cloud-hosted system managed by Dalet as a full SaaS service, also benefits from these enhancements and connects securely with existing on-premises systems.
Bea Alonso, director of product marketing, Dalet, said, “Every improvement Dalet has made has the end-user in mind to help with agility and efficiency with remote production. This is critical when a journalist is working against the clock, where every keystroke counts while working from their home office or any remote location.”
Available from Apple’s App Store and Google Play, the latest release of Dalet On-the-Go connects journalists, reporters and chief editors to the newsroom enabling them to manage assignments, story development, review and approval, rundowns, planning, status and contact search, all remotely. Users can easily access their Dalet Galaxy five catalogue of video, audio, scripts and wires. Advanced content contribution capabilities and templates let users record media and craft stories quickly mixing local media together with remote content stored within the Dalet Galaxy five system.
