Emap Radio Makes The Leap To DaletPlusEnhances audio distribution with next generation asset management capabilities from Dalet (June 30, 2005)
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of media management tools for more than a decade, today announced that Emap Radio, a Dalet customer since 1995, will add DaletPlus for next generation content management and distribution. A subsidiary of UK based media giant, Emap Plc, Emap Radio (Emap) owns one of the largest digital radio networks in the UK. With Dalets radio technology successfully deployed throughout Emaps studios, it was a natural decision to interconnect the information flow between them using Dalets state-of-the-art asset management solution DaletPlus.
?Using Dalets software across our sites has always given us great advantages from a support point of view and also for users who move between our sites says Steve Bone Broadcast Systems Manager at EMAP Radio. ?The Dalet expansion will now give our users the ability to share and distribute content both easily and quickly.
"Emap is a perfect example of leveraging Dalet's core asset management technology to maximize broadcast production," comments David Amselem, vice president of marketing and product strategy, Dalet. "The flexibility in which Dalet's technology can integrate within an operation initiates more productive and efficient workflows."
DaletPlus will structure Emap content distribution by organizing material into a central repository. Emap studios will transfer content to and from this central repository, streamlining the entire information flow process. Content metadata will be tracked using customizable metadata tags, ensuring content rules and information are maintained throughout its lifecycle. Straightforward cataloging enables users to quickly and easily access all available content from their desktop.
