Dalet, a leading provider of Media Asset Management (MAM) solutions software and services for content producers, announced today that BBC Northern Ireland has extended its long-term relationship with Dalet by upgrading the production, playout and distribution capability of its radio operation to Dalet Radio Suite. The new solution is in daily use by more than 200 users at the nation’s production hubs in Belfast and Londonderry.
The upgrade of the two sites, which was performed by Dalet Professional Services together with an internal operations team and included consulting, installation and training, took place between November 2013 and March 2014.
“The fresh rollout of Dalet software and the new infrastructure have enabled BBC NI radio production teams to advance to the latest workstation operating systems and also move to higher quality linear audio without disruption to their established operations,” explains Chris Wright, General Manager, Dalet UK. “Dalet Radio Suite users also benefit from Dalet OneCut, an advanced audio editor that includes effects and supports multiple audio formats. Radio Suite’s desktop production and on-air tools provide all they need to record or import audio files, edit complete packages, and build the cart walls and rundowns needed in the studios.”
