Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced major mobility enhancements for the management, performance and user experience of remote newsroom operations. Meeting the needs of the growing number of journalists and news producers working remotely, Dalet has made major usability improvements to its Dalet On-the-Go mobile app for smartphones and tablets, boosting the collaborative experience between remote journalists and the newsroom with advanced content contribution and remote planning capabilities through a brand new, modern UI.
Advancements to the underlying Dalet Galaxy five news production and distribution platform bring powerful 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 your existing on-premises system, supporting advanced workflows for remote editing and news production teams.
“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,” states Bea Alonso, director of product marketing, Dalet. “Our digital-first product strategy focuses on mobility and flexibility. Dalet On-the-Go and remote news production solutions, like Dalet Galaxy xCloud, empower journalists, reporters and chief editors with the technology they need to pivot, remain productive and keep telling vital stories.”
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 catalog 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. Dalet’s smart upload features guard against connectivity issues, reconnecting to the upload exactly where it left off when necessary. A feature-rich teleprompter supports on-the-fly reporting while tickers, wires and chat messages keep staff connected to information and late-breaking news.
“Dalet On-the-Go, combined with other mobility offerings such as Dalet WebSpace, provides optimal flexibility and mobility. With a standard internet connection, you can manage the entire newsroom flow from your laptop, tablet or phone. It's extremely powerful,” notes Bea.
