The BBC World Service has chosen Dalet’s News Suite as an integrated video ingest, media asset management and production platform for its new Arabic TV channel.
The new channel will launch this fall and be broadcast in Arabic to 22 countries across the Middle East. The DaletPlus system will control ingest of video feeds and field material as well as provide 80 journalists with desktop editing tools and digital archiving.
To be installed in the newly refurbished BBC Broadcasting House in London, the system, valued at 1.8 million Euro, will use Omneon Spectrum Media Servers for ingest and playout and integrate with a number of systems, including an AP ENPS text newsroom computer system and an IBIS playout automation platform.
The media produced will feed the TV channel and also be repurposed for output on the Web and for radio broadcasts.
