Dalet Pyramid combines planning, content creation, asset and resource management, playout and multiplatform distribution into a single platform for the production of fast-breaking, digital and live news, current affairs shows and more. The architecture facilitates collaboration at story-level with the industry’s first Storytelling 360 approach and enables a truly virtual newsroom. Dalet Pyramid supports multiple cloud providers, including AWS, and can also run in virtualised environments.
Dalet Pyramid is the next-generation solution for Unified News Operations. Accommodating both digital-first and linear end-to-end news workflows, the cloud-native Dalet Pyramid solution enables a collaborative Storytelling 360 approach to multi-platform production and distribution. Dalet Pyramid is the result of 20+ years of R&D, expertise, experience and collaborative innovation with customers.
We officially announced Dalet Pyramid in November 2020 and the global premiere debuted in October 2021. Since then, Dalet has spoken to existing Dalet Galaxy five customers and prospects to understand their challenges and what they were looking for. This has resulted in a newsroom solution like no other and represents what the modern newsroom should look like.
Dalet Pyramid builds on Dalet’s Unified News Operations where planning, content creation, asset and resource management, playout and multiplatform distribution have been combined into a single platform that enables production of fast-breaking, digital and live news, current affairs shows, and more. The new agile architecture design facilitates collaboration at story-level with the industry’s first Storytelling 360 approach and enables a truly virtual newsroom. Just like all Dalet offerings, Dalet Pyramid is a cloud-agnostic solution that supports multiple cloud providers, including industry leader Amazon Web Services. It can also run in virtualized environments, offering unprecedented mobility that supports the industry’s continued pivot to solutions designed to support remote productions.
Dalet Pyramid’s purposeful user experience features the breadth and depth of news production, planning, distribution and playout tools to facilitate fast breaking news across all viewing platforms. The modern, web-based user interface makes it easy to onboard staff and freelancers quickly, reducing training time. Users can contribute, produce and manage the full news story lifecycle from anywhere using smartphones, tablets and laptops connected to basic internet. The underlying Dalet asset management and orchestration engine facilitates content flow from ingest through planning to distribution and archive.
Dalet Pyramid facilitates collaboration at the story level, propelling a Storytelling 360 workflow that lets users develop the various story angles required for digital, social, TV and radio simultaneously. The AI-powered Dalet Media Cortex, a standard offering at entry-level within Dalet Pyramid, provides a variety of speech-to-text features, including assisted captioning and translation, with innovative AI services that automatically index or recommend content to news professionals and storytellers. Robust APIs and panels, such as Dalet Xtend for Adobe Creative Cloud®, enable extensive custom integrations, allowing customers to tailor their workflows according to their needs.
Dalet Pyramid offers the fastest roll-out and upgrade process time on the market, supporting the onboarding of hundreds of users on any given day. The flexible, subscription-based solution can run with a range of cloud providers, including AWS, on-premises, or a hybrid of both. Customers looking for a SaaS option will benefit from having Dalet host, deploy and manage the solution, supporting the constant ebb and flow of resource fluctuations without increasing their capital investment.
The agility of the Dalet Pyramid architecture and inherent benefits of SaaS enable customers to rationalize their productions across the entire operation and dramatically increase user productivity everywhere, reducing the overall TCO of the platform. Combined with its digital-first and Storytelling 360 workflow capabilities, the solution will help transform the business of news production, setting a new bar for operational standards and efficiencies while opening doors to new revenue opportunities thanks to stronger digital and OTT workflows.
Existing Dalet Galaxy five customers can migrate their license to a subscription and benefit from packaged Dalet Pyramid offerings that bring additional functionality to their newsroom. New capabilities include seamless remote contribution, multiplatform digital production and distribution, web-based editing, as well as planning and resource management. Fully compatible with Dalet Galaxy five, Dalet Pyramid introduces deployment flexibility without compromising on functionality.
