Dalet and Vector 3 launch news solution
Dalet Digital Media Systems has partnered with video server manufacturer Vector 3 to launch Dalet News Suite for VectorBox. The turnkey digital production and playout solution was designed for local television stations.
The system combines Dalet News Suite integrated news and program production tools running on standard IT servers with VectorBox video and template-based CG playout.
Recognizing that small broadcasters are challenged by rising costs, the companies said the new package is a cost-efficient solution that requires minimum staff training and is simple to administer.
Dalet News Suite for VectorBox comes standard with a predefined workflow, associated training and installation services. It integrates with existing nonlinear editing (NLE) systems and complements these by providing centralized storage, desktop shot selection and editing, template-based CGs, advanced scripting, program preparation tools and reliable playout.
The system comes standard with five production workstations, centralized storage, one agency wire receiver and a Vector V-News playout server. The system is scalable. Centralized feed ingest, workstations, playout ports and storage can be added at any time. Designed as an open platform, it can evolve with a station’s needs whether it be program continuity playout, rich-media file distribution for Web and mobile networks, archiving or multilocation production.
