Dalet, a leading developer of Media Asset Management (MAM) solutions, software and services for broadcasters, is introducing the Dalet On-the-Go mobile app at NAB 2013 (Booth SL4524) held in Las Vegas, April 8 – 11, 2013. This new app is designed for journalists in the field to stay fully connected to their newsroom running Dalet News Suite. They can use the app with their mobile devices to perform a number of tasks – from catching up on a breaking story or checking assignments to contributing stories, videos, audio and images back to their Dalet newsroom. Dalet On-the-Go makes it happen with just a few taps on the device screen.
The new app, which initially supports iOS devices including iPhone® and iPad®, provides three primary functions: Read-In, My Assignments and Contribution. The interfaces are clear and intuitive, designed for ease-of-use and fast accessibility.
- Read-In allows users to browse and search with keywords and get updates on the latest news from wires, stories, including items embedded inside these stories. Users can just click to access available audio or video.
- The My Assignments function allows reporters to check their individual assignments for a given day as well as related details such as metadata and media associated with those tasks.
- The Contribution page allows users to upload stories, videos, images and audio directly from their iOS device to their Dalet home site.
“Dalet On-the-Go is a logical progression in making media and information available to Dalet users wherever they are,” says Raoul Cospen, Director or Marketing and Business Development, Dalet. “This nimble app provides the immediacy and collaboration that are so important in fast-paced news operations.”
Dalet solutions enable broadcasters and media professionals to create, manage and distribute content to both traditional and new media channels, including interactive TV, the Web and mobile networks.
