German public broadcaster Westdeustscher Rundfunk (WDR) has implemented a Dalet Enterprise Edition solution to produce on-demand video programs for distribution via its online news services. Deployed at WDR headquarters in Cologne, the Dalet Enterprise Edition system is used by the newly formed Portal Redaktion department, which is responsible for the recording and interactive distribution of all WDR programs.
The Dalet Enterprise Edition workflow integrates with the existing WDR OpenMedia newsroom computer system to automatically generate metadata for recorded material. The Dalet Video FIFO Recorder automatically records the main WDR studio program feed, while the 10 regional studio programs are captured using Dalet ASI-DVB-Recorders. On-demand programs are edited and pushed along with metadata to the WDR online news portal in Adobe Flash Video VP6 file format.
