Dalet to Centralize Mediaset News Operations
Italian news broadcaster Mediaset has recently acquired a Dalet Enterprise Edition as part of an overall centralization of their newsroom operations.
The asset management solution from Dalet was purchased to streamline all of Mediaset’s news operations, including a 24/7 news channel set to launch later this year. The system is designed to let users browse wires, prepare text, edit video and
create voiceovers and packages through the system’s desktop control.
"The ability to unify our news operations with the Dalet Enterprise Edition
working on a single database will give us tremendous advantages,” said
Mauro Cassanmagnago, Mediaset deputy general manager, department of research and
engineering, in a press release. "We believe the Dalet solution, with its advanced,
open-IT platform and proven scalability, gives us an excellent long-term
solution for news prep and dissemination. It integrates well with the many
other elements of our infrastructure and is also adaptable for future
Mediaset’s Dalet Enterprise Edition will unify the work of more than 120 news agency staffers in Milan with another 25 journalists working in Rome as well as 40 archivists operating at both locations. The Dalet WebSpace web client will allow remote journalists to access the database from the field, enabling on-site coverage.
