Deutsche Welle digitizes newsroom with Dalet OpenMedia

Deutsche Welle (DW) has selected Dalet OpenMedia with the OnAir plug-in to equip its broadcast newsroom. The OpenMedia platform will provide planning, scheduling and playout capabilities for DW television, radio and Internet operations.

The integrated OnAir automation extension will streamline workflow between newsroom and gallery operations. This massive installation seeds more than 1000 workstations across Berlin and Bonn sites. It will be used to produce TV and radio programs in 28 languages.

The first tri-media system to be delivered in Germany, the Dalet solution will offer flexible newsroom workflows that incorporate existing processes and legacy systems as well as offer new and more effective approaches for content development broadcast. The OpenMedia newsroom and OnAir extensions that control Omneon servers will cover the complete workflow — from planning to broadcast.

The Deutsche Welle deal also represents a first deployment for the new Dalet OpenMedia Extensions. The flexible solution allows Deutsche Welle to manage playout of assets residing in production, playout and archiving workflows. The entire solution operates using one common database, operating system and user-friendly interface.
