To answer this question, we need first to look at where we come from. What Dalet has done in the last ten years is to provide a very distinct approach to news production by combining the Newsroom Computer System and Media Production into a single platform. The result is one system – essentially an NRCS with a Media Asset Management core – that provides end to end workflows from Ingest to Production and Playout. It is built on a story-centric approach that allows for easy content sharing and re-purposing. A unified interface gives the reporter and the producer a comprehensive set of tools to access and transform the objects managed by the system: scripts, media pieces, wires, feeds, rundowns…
The newsroom of 2020 is a very different beast from that of 2010s. Especially in the current climate. Rapid and disruptive changes are happening, so how do we understand the future of newsrooms in such a dynamic time?
Most importantly, let’s consider how newsrooms have evolved from those of the past. Broadcasters need to listen up when it comes to their technological need in order to future proof workflows. Non-linear working, file based systems, social media, citizen journalism, AI, the cloud, the ability to work remotely, have all been disruptors to the old standard.
As a systems vendor, we have had to adapt our approach to ensure we’re helping our customers stay ahead of the curve, and optimise our offering to ensure newsrooms are working in 2020, and beyond. As journalists are required to do more and more, with less budget, amongst other things, this means establishing proper professional tools to navigate the disruptive elements. This means ensuring broadcasters and journalists workflows are time and cost efficient, along with brand agnostic.

When the pandemic escalated, sending the world into lockdown, new remote working measures were implemented, and CGI was internally well equipped to handle the changes. Our employees regularly work from home, and thus have the full set up to continue collaborating whilst supporting our customers. As our solutions are web based, our customers still had all of the tools to be able to focus purely on the story at hand, which was more important than ever before during a global event like COVID-19 has and continues to be.
