Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today that NextRadioTV is placing the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM), Orchestration and Editorial platform at the heart of a major new facility in Paris, France. The multimillion-Euro installation, spearheaded by Dalet Professional Services and configured on a single, agile, highly scalable and resilient Dalet Galaxy platform, will orchestrate all production, playout and distribution workflows for TV, Radio and digital channels of NextRadioTV media network.
Confidence in the Dalet technology and delivery team stems from a decade pluspartnership and collaboration starting with BFMTV. Dalet initially supplied the brand new 24/7 news channel a single-platform solution for news production and playout in 2005, providing the technology foundation for BFMTV becoming the nations most popular news network drawing 10 million daily viewers. As BFMTV grew, they expanded the Dalet installation to support additional thematic channels, leveraging the Dalet platform scalability and agility to adapt to the changing requirements. In 2015, the ambition and investment for the brand accelerated, culminating in the new multi-workflow/multi-platform facility in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. This installation will rely on Dalet to support more than 400 concurrent users and drive a converged environment for production and playout of News, Sports, Radio and Archives across fourteen TV and radio channels, including BFM Sport and BFM Paris as well as RMC, BFM Business and SFR Sport.
BFMTV launched in 2005 with a team of 50 and has grown rapidly to become the leading news channel in France.
A single Dalet Galaxy MAM, Orchestration and Editorial platform will serve all operations, facilitating immediate sharing of content across all departments, as well as controlling and automating hundreds of simultaneous workflows covering all productions and playout operations. All desktop editing for fast turnaround news and sports multimedia content will be enabled by Dalet OneCut, while more advanced packages will be crafted on Adobe Premiere Pro CC brought seamlessly into the collaborative workflow via Dalet Xtend.
Dalet Professional Services will work side by side with NextRadioTV teams to help design and deliver workflows and assist in managing the companys migration from its existing site to the new state-of-the-art hub.
Dalet has helped BFMTV and then NextRadioTV to expand its business and workflow requirements for more than a decade. Its a history that really demonstrates the capabilities of the Dalet professional services team and technology platforms to support the groups vision by accommodating any type of media workflow that they wish to implement, says Johann Zemmour, Director of Sales, EMEA and APAC Dalet. A key to BFMs strategy in designing the new facility was leveraging the capability of Dalet to converge in one platform media asset management, production and playout of news, sports and other programs on Radio, TV, Digital and Social platforms. This converged environment will allow them to significantly expand the number of channels and the number of workflows they can handle without massively increasing resources. The Dalet Galaxy platform has the proven agility to manage any new requirements for a media company as visionary as NextRadioTV.
