Dalet Digital Media Systems has announced that Prime Television (Prime) has selected the DaletPlus News Suite solution for its newsroom production and broadcast.
Prime operates from 19 locations throughout Australia and New Zealand and offers around-the-clock programming and several daily news bulletins. The installation of DaletPlus News Suite will enable Prime's Australian regional locations to produce and broadcast news at the local level.
The implementation, scheduled for the fourth quarter 2003, will provide Prime with a fully integrated all-digital newsroom environment. From a single user interface, newsroom personnel will be able to access tools for: writing scripts, media ingest, editing, closed captioning, scheduling and planning, playout and archiving.
The integrated DaletPlus News Suite toolset allows more Prime personnel to participate in the news production process. Journalists in all areas can browse wires, write scripts, clip and edit video, insert synchronized closed captions and record voiceovers. Media is stored for shared access by all locations. News directors can easily review and approve stories in progress. Business rules automatically transfer approved stories and associated media in the correct format to the server for playout.
