Dalet, a leading provider of media management tools, today announced that in the past three weeks the company has signed new deals together worth over € 1 million. The total volume splits up in one order from Northern Europe for a TV broadcaster, and three mid-size Radio deals. The deals are expected to be partly recognized during Q4 of this year and in 2007, as well as to generate additional recurring maintenance revenue in subsequent years. For competitive reasons the company cannot disclose at this stage the names of the customers.
“These recent deals clearly demonstrate the relevance of our converged production platform,” explains David Lasry, CEO of Dalet. “The deal in Northern Europe is for a mid-size end-to-end DaletPlus News Suite TV newsroom system for a customer that is already employing Dalet Radio products; the three radio deals are for broadcasters in the Middle-East and Eastern Europe who have been using Dalet products for long and who now are upgrading to DaletPlus Radio Suite.”
DaletPlus News Suite is fast becoming the standard for end-to-end newsroom production and playout. Ingest, NCS, editing, playout, and archiving are integrated through Dalet smart media asset management technology. The comprehensive metadata management ensures broadcasters a news production environment that maximizes the value of content. DaletPlus Radio Suite provides a set of easy-to use production and workflow management tools for Radio news production and music programming.
