Dalet announces Dalet Pyramid and 30th anniversary brand revamp
Dalet, a technology and service provider for media-rich organizations, has announced Dalet Pyramid, its next generation solution for Unified News Operations. Designed to accelerate the evolution of news organizations and serve distributed teams, it 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.
Dalet Pyramid features natively integrated tools that enable 360-storytelling and “faster” breaking news across all viewing platforms. News producers can create content “from anywhere” for all audiences with advanced 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 favorite 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.”
Raoul adds, “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 connected to the story, enabling multi-user collaboration and speeding up news delivery to audiences. Furthermore, advanced AI capabilities automate metadata tagging and provide real-time contextual recommendations.
As aforementioned, Dalet Pyramid can be set up for cloud, on-premises or hybrid operations. The configuration module and open APIs give greater control to system administrators, requiring less ramp-up time.
Dalet Pyramid will be offered in a range of flexible business models, such as subscription and SaaS. Shorter development cycles and regular updates will ensure users are up to date with the “latest functionality with minimal operational disruption”.
Raoul concludes, “The subscription and usage-based business models give our customers tremendous visibility and a real opportunity to lower their TCO.”
Dalet Pyramid is a key component of Dalet’s major company transformation, which includes a fully reimagined brand identity. According to the company, this “vibrant brand evolution reflects Dalet’s 30 years of industry innovation and embodies the company’s mission to help content owners craft compelling stories anywhere”.
