Russian satellite channel Rusiya Al-Yaum will use the DaletPlus News Suite solution to broadcast its programs in Arabic, Dalet announced last week.

The installation will provide the new Rusiya Al-Yaum with newsroom production, playout and archiving capabilities, and work in conjunction with Omneon video servers and standard IT technology.

The DaletPlus News Suite has a successful track record in Russia at Russia Today, an English-language satellite news channel aimed at a global audience. There, it provides production and playout capabilities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, delivering news and information about business, culture and sports events to 100 countries on six continents.

At Rusiya Al-Yaum, the DaletPlus News Suite will manage all aspects of the news production and playout workflow from ingest to production and on-air.
