The NAB Show has long been the premier event where media, entertainment, and technology professionals converge to exchange ideas and unveil the next wave of innovation. This year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas was nothing short of spectacular for the Dalet team. From exciting announcements to prestigious awards and new industry partnerships, the show set the tone for 2024 to be a year of innovation, efficiency, and collaboration in media technology.

The big hunt for business efficiencies

Many of Dalet’s global clients attended NAB and they all seem to have one thing in common: the quest for heightened business efficiencies has never been more pressing. Dalet’s solutions showcased how integrating cutting-edge technology with seamless workflows could significantly streamline operations. The emphasis was on actionable insights that drive smart decisions, reducing operational costs while boosting overall productivity. Artificial Intelligence (AI), a cornerstone in this endeavor, was presented not as a futuristic ideal but as a practical, integrated tool.

Dalet Pyramid did not go unnoticed at NAB 2024—the planning app was recognized with a TV Tech NAB Best of Show award, solidifying its position as a game-changer in unified news operations. For those looking to transform their operations with innovative solutions, Dalet Pyramid is leading the way with modern, borderless newsrooms. Complete visibility provides enhanced collaboration between different roles and teams, particularly for organizations distributed in multiple locations, saving time and optimizing resources.

Of course, winning the hunt for business efficiencies is a team effort. Our tech showcases included collaborations with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Highlights from their booth included the AWS ‘Media Supply Chain’ demo featuring Dalet InStream, Flex, and Cut, and the ‘Newsroom’ demo with Dalet Pyramid. Visit the AWS website for more details on these workflows.

The announcement of partnerships with Veritone and VAST Data also represents steps toward a future where media operations are more efficient, intelligent, and connected. Integrating the Dalet Flex media workflow ecosystem with Veritone’s AI-powered Digital Media Hub (“DMH”) enables seamless workflow from content creation through production, curation, packaging and distribution, empowering media, sports and entertainment customers to monetize their digital media archives.

AI Everywhere: Practical Integrated AI Matters!

Speaking of AI, rarely has a technology grown its footprint so quickly in conversations with our customers and the market. While AI was the buzzword at NAB 2024, Dalet has been offering practical integrated AI through Dalet Media Cortex since 2018. The solution provides speech recognition, language translation, automated metadata tagging, and more.

We showcased how AI is shaping the future of media workflows right now by simplifying complex, repetitive tasks to enhance productivity so media professionals can devote more time to creating compelling content. Visitors to the Dalet booth were able to discuss real use cases, such as automated digital production and the complexity of multiple language requirements – how incorporating AI can automate translations of captions, graphics, and voiceovers, amongst others. Dalet demonstrated news package localization at scale, automated wires and content summarization, as well as AI-powered social media scripting. Visitors agreed: Dalet is addressing the challenges that will unlock AI’s true potential and foster its adoption in the news, sports, and entertainment industries.

AI is now essential to reduce the chaos from overwhelming feeds and assist journalists and producers in gathering information and preparing content for news coverage. AI can support every stage of the production chain, analyzing and indexing incoming content so it is discoverable. VP of Product Management, Mathieu Zarouk, sheds light on our AI strategies and offerings in an insightful dialogue. Deep dive into our AI capabilities here.

Monumental Speakers at the Executive Breakfast

The Dalet Executive Breakfast is always a show highlight. This year the featured speaker was Charlie Myers, CTO of Monumental Sports & Entertainment. Following the recent launch of their state-of-the-art production facility and broadcast studios powered by Dalet technologies, Myers shared insights into how Dalet is fueling a new era of sports entertainment. Their recently launched SMPTE ST 2110, 1080p facility is among the most technologically advanced of any regional sports network in history.

The event also marked an exciting new chapter for Dalet as we welcomed Santiago Solanas as our incoming CEO. His presentation clearly resonated with the audience of industry leaders. Under Santiago’s leadership, Dalet will continue to redefine the news, media & entertainment, and sports content landscape. Later, from the buzzing halls of Las Vegas, his first interview laid the groundwork for his vision and the direction Dalet is heading. Spoiler alert: look for us to continue with advanced cloud-native, AI, and automation solutions. Watch the interview here to catch a glimpse of the future under Santiago’s leadership.

We also explored the possibilities and the importance of the work of the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA) with Bruce MacCormack, got a sneak peek into the future of news production with Dalet’s Stephane Guez and delved into the world of AI with Dalet’s Mathieu Zarouk.

Hybrid Wins with a Cloud-Native, Modular Platform

Although the cloud has grown more prevalent in recent years, the emphasis on hybrid solutions caters to organizations seeking to merge their existing infrastructure with the cloud’s scalability and flexibility. NAB attendees were able to experience firsthand Dalet’s collaborative, AI-enabled workflows that harness the power of a single, cloud-native technology stack to facilitate production, distribution, archive and monetization across all channels.

Dalet lets you deploy on any cloud, on-premises or hybrid environment with best-in-class security and a robust set of tools to ingest, find, produce, repurpose, deliver, and monetize content. Dalet’s modern architecture supports technological evolution with a modular collection of services and expanded workflows that bring real business value and operational efficiencies. As the company develops new, bespoke technologies, modules and applications for news, sports, OTT, archives and other content workflows, the Dalet cloud-native platform underpins the expanded ecosystem seamlessly.
