Chilean Broadcaster Mega TV Deploys Dalet Unified News Operations

Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today that Chilean Broadcaster Mega TV is revamping its operations with the Dalet Unified News Operations solution powered by Dalet Galaxy, the leading Media Asset Management (MAM), Orchestration and Editorial platform for news production and distribution. Key to the decision is the agility of the Dalet platform and its ability to meet the future requirements of Mega TV, supporting traditional as well as new-generation digital and social media news production and distribution workflows.

A Dalet customer since 2012, Mega TV is one of Latin Americas highest-flying free-to-air broadcast networks and the first private broadcaster in Chile. Headquartered in Santiago, the channel is among the countrys most watched with its line-up of sitcoms, magazine shows and daily news shows including Ahora Noticias. We are keen to expand our footprint and to better engage audiences with the best news content across all possible viewing and listening platforms, explains Sal Ureta, technical manager for Mega TV. As we seek to grow our broadcast portfolio we were faced with a strategic decision. Do we work with independent production and post-production systems which might create silos in our workflow, or do we plan for the future and build a collaborative and highly efficient workflow for news that spans across all our channels? Our experience with Dalet convinced us that the platform was able to evolve and meet all our new requirements by accommodating many different operating and organizational models, latest standards & content formats, as well as a wide palette of integrations and connectors. The Dalet Unified News Operations solution in particular offers a much more fluid way of working as well as integrated tools for remote production and collaboration. The solution also comes with a full social media framework that empowers our teams to better engage with their audiences on social media as part of their everyday workflow.The comprehensive solution will be implemented together with Dalet business partner Zer Digital.

Dalet Unified News Operations not only replaces Mega TVs existing newsroom computer system and news production system, it will bring a number of new tools and collaborative processes. Journalists, reporters and producers will be able to share assignments, stories and any assets, accessing a single system and toolset via configurable workspaces. Dalet WebSpace and the Dalet On-the-Go mobile app extend capabilities into the field, allowing authorized users to be part of connected workflows. The broadcaster will also leverage Dalets Social Media framework and award-winning Dalet Social Media Panel to harvest, plan, produce and deliver content efficiently to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, while gathering more data about the audiences and their engagement. Dalet Brio is core to the solutions ingest and playout transactions of live news shows. The Dalet AmberFin media processing platform will be used for high-quality transcoding. Content packages will be crafted on Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC. The Adobe application is brought seamlessly into the collaborative workflow via Dalet Xtend. All of these are native or tightly coupled components controlled and orchestrated by Dalet Galaxy, which integrates with Mega TVs content management system.

Continuing and enhancing our five-year old partnership with Mega TV is significant not just to support the development of their operations and business, but also for Dalets growing footprint and reputation within the wider South American market, comments Julien Decaix, general manager Americas, Dalet. Mega TV has fully demonstrated its ambition to be a forward-thinking and innovative broadcaster. Dalet is proud to be a strategic technical partner in this endeavor. In just about every country on the continent from Colombia to Brazil, Dalet is excited to be making inroads as a growing number of leading broadcasters choose to deploy Dalets future-proof solutions over boxed products in order to facilitate a more comprehensive digital transformation.
