i24 News installs Dalet for asset management

Israel based privately-owned 24-hour news channel, i24news, has installed a Dalet News Suite news production and automation system in its studios for asset management. i24 had launched its three channels in July 2013, and has a cable and satellite reach of 800 million households around the world.

“Having an interface with a comprehensive content management system (CMS) is critical. With Dalet being linked to Brightcove, i24news is able to integrate services and content better for distribution over the Web and multi-platforms that have become so crucial in today’s 24/7 news environment,” said Effy Lupo, chief technical officer, i24news.

The system features a media asset management system from Dalet, along with the company’s Brio 4:4 ingest and playout servers, Harmonic ProMedia Carbon transcoders, Quantum LTO tape library, and a Brightcove content management system (CMS).
