Dalet Media Life and Dalet News Suite on New Dalet Galaxy Platform
Demonstrations of the end-to-end capabilities of the latest version of Dalet Media Life, which is built entirely on the Galaxy platform, will be shown at the Dalet booth (SL4524). Already in production, Dalet Media Life features the newly revamped Galaxy interface and is designed for the rigorous workflow requirements of program preparation and archiving. It includes a complete set of functional tools for mass-ingest, pre-editing, storyboarding, subtitling, captioning, versioning, distribution, and more – all accessible from the same user interface. Media Life is designed to integrate with third-party systems such as NLEs, automation devices, archives, traffic, resource management and rights management systems.
Dalet News Suite is the only fully integrated news system on the market that meets the challenge of media convergence. Within a single system, Dalet News Suite manages TV, radio and digital news production. Previews of Dalet News Suite operating on the Galaxy platform will be shown at the Dalet booth. News Suite is an end-to-end, MAM-based newsroom production system that provides desktop scripting, video editing, graphic and multimedia tools that cover every aspect of content creation – from ingest through automated playout, archives and multiplatform delivery. Dalet News Suite facilitates story-centric production and fosters collaboration between different departments — from the news desk, planning and production, to the control room and new media units. The Dalet Galaxy MAM platform tracks media and metadata; the workflow engine automates many background tasks. The Dalet Xtend integrations options allow for fluid connections with third-party production, broadcast and distribution systems, such as craft editors and other broadcast and distribution vehicles such as Drupal CMS systems for multiplatform delivery.
Demonstrations of the complete functionalities of workflow-specific tools for Dalet Sports Factory and Dalet Radio Suite, which are currently being ported to the new Galaxy platform, will also be featured at the Dalet booth.
Dalet One Cut Video Editor – A Cut Above
Dalet One Cut is a new real-time editor designed to handle multiple tracks of video and audio. Built on a totally new video engine, Dalet One Cut supports a mix of video and audio formats and any bitrate. It is an incredibly versatile application perfectly suited to editors with various levels of expertise. It’s possible to easily create unique templates that correlate to the specific level of functions needed for specific jobs. For instance, only the necessary tracks and button functions will be shown to an operator whose primary job is performing voiceovers or other simple tasks. More experienced editors may access more or all of the One Cut functionalities. Dalet One Cut is a full-featured editor with all the essential functions – browse, preview, multiple tracks, a trimmer for rough-cut editing, timeline-based editing and segments, and a complete toolbar menu for typical edit functions. Dalet One Cut can be used in standalone mode, which is ideal for staffers who are working away from the facility, or it can be used as a fully integrated editor in Dalet’s end-to-end workflow solutions.
This new mobile app extends the remote capabilities of Dalet users. Three key functions are included with the app: Read-In, Contribution and My Assignments. It’s the perfect tool for journalists in the field who have access to a Dalet site. Read-In allows users to browse and get up to date on the latest news; with My Assignments, reporters can check their individual assignments for a given day along and get all the necessary details; the Contributions page allows them to upload stories, videos, images and audio directly from the phone app to the home site. The screens for each function are clear and easy to use. Dalet On-the-Go is available now from the iTunes App Store and currently supports iOS (iPhones® as well as iPad®). The next version of Dalet On-the-Go will also support the Android® platform.
Additional Dalet Xtend Connectors
Dalet Xtend connectors enable seamless integrations between the Dalet MAM and third-party production, broadcast, and distributions systems.

Other Xtend connectors are available for all types of systems, including EVS servers and other sports systems, various traffic and rights management programs, automation, QC, conversion agents, HSM systems, CMS systems such as Drupal and others.
