NewsSpain's national radio broadcaster replaces existing infrastructure with Dalet media asset management-based audio solution; Telefonica to lead system design and installation Last Updated: September 9, 2010 7:08 pm GMT
(Amsterdam-IBC, The Netherlands--September 9, 2010) Dalet Digital Media Systems today announced that Radio Nacional de España (RNE) will implement Dalet Radio Suite HD to facilitate news and music program production for all six of their themed radio stations: Radio 1, Radio Clásica, Radio 3, Radio 4, Radio 5 and Radio Exterior de España. The RNE audience size ranks third in the world with a listener base of more than 80 million.
The large-scale installation will consist of the Dalet enterprise Media Asset Management (MAM) platform with integrated audio production tools and music programming capabilities, as well as a robust newsroom computer system, facilitating all music programming and news production. Telefonica Servicios Audiovisuales (TSA), the leading systems integrator for Spain, will spearhead the installation, which will leverage the Dalet MAM framework to integrate disparate corporate systems and sub-systems. "Both the team and technology from Dalet are very adept at unifying and streamlining large-scale, concurrent workflows like RNE," said Stephane Schlayen, Chief Operating Officer, Dalet. "The Dalet value proposition goes far beyond this though. We design and deliver enterprise solutions that grow with our customer's needs. Our modern MAM platform is engineered to support new technology opportunities, giving customers like RNE, a future-proof platform with a much lower cost of total ownership."
The Dalet installation at RNE will cover 65 sites and include over 1600 systems equipped with a full range of production tools, including the new Dalet One Cut Editor, as well as the robust Dalet newsroom computer system (NRCS). Dalet's MAM-platform will enable multi-site exchange between RNE locations. The core Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) will provide an API for integration with corporate systems, including RNE's CRTVE (Radio Television Espanola Corporation) archive. The Dalet metadata management engine will generate and track metadata detail across the entire workflow. "There are multiple integration points that need a dynamic and flexible system to accommodate the concurrent, bi-directional business processes. Dalet offers a proven platform with an SOA architecture that is ideal for supporting this type of sophisticated integration," comments Jose Luis Garcia, broadcast sales manager, TSA. "We have worked with Dalet on a number of advanced tapeless installations with great success. They have a mature yet forward-thinking solution that we can have confidence in handling a project of this size. Equally as important is the skill of their Professional Services team that will assist us in deployment."
