Magna Systems and Engineering today announced that they will be offering an even more comprehensive range of newsroom and enterprise Media Asset Management (MAM) system integration solutions as a result of a new Asia Pacific distribution agreement with Dalet.


Magna Systems CEO David Bowers said, “Dalet is a perfect fit for Magna Systems as their newsroom and MAM solutions enhance and integrate with many of our key principal’s products including Anystream, Chyron, Front Porch Digital, Interra Systems, Miranda, Pebble Beach and SeaChange. As a result we already have several major projects in the pipeline that involve Dalet MAM solutions to streamline production workflows and assist in the management of audio and video assets for our broadcast, entertainment and media industry clients, throughout the Asia Pacific region.”

Operating worldwide, Dalet solutions are used in 50 countries by over 1,700 customers including ABC, ARD Tagesschau, BBC, Bayerischer Rundfunk, Cadena Ser, Canadian Broadcasting Corp, Catalunya Radio, Deutsche Welle, EMAP, Emmis, Entercom, Fashion Show Media Network, ITN, Journal, MBC, Mediaset, MediaCorp Singapore, National Public Radio (NPR), NDR, Polskie Radio, Prime TV, Radio France, Radio France International, Radio Suisse Romande, Rhein-Neckar Fernsehen, Six News Now, The Scottish Parliament, SKY Television, South Africa Broadcast Corp., SWR, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Voice of America, Washington and Lee University, WDR, Weather Channel, and XM Satellite Radio.

Essentially Dalet’s Enterprise Media Asset Management system enables broadcasters and content producers to incorporate multiple formats, metadata models and workflows – news, sports, programs, VOD, archives in SD and HD – under one unified corporate system by simplifying the distribution of rich-media assets across both traditional and interactive platforms. Our combined newsroom and enterprise MAM solutions form a key part of our stand 7D2-01 at Broadcast Asia 2010 and our strategy moving forward.”
