Moscow, Russia (November 21, 2007)--National broadcaster Russian Television and Radio (RTR) has chosen Dalet Enterprise Edition to digitize the news production and archiving workflows at its Moscow-based headquarters, as well as its 86 regional stations.
This massive Dalet Enterprise Edition installation will seed some 2,500 seats, offering RTR a media asset management solution with integrated broadcast production capabilities to optimize and standardize news production, playout and archiving across the large number of RTR television stations.
RTR (which is also known as VGTRK) is Russia's largest state run television organization offering news, sports, entertainment and culture type programming.
"We spent a considerable amount of time researching solutions for this critical transition to an all digital system. Given the size and geographic span of our facilities, our needs were a bit more complex than just looking at systems that incorporated next-generation technology. We needed a system that could offer a complete broadcast environment and allow us to standardize the sharing of media and elevate the collaboration between locations," comments Aleksey Malinin, deputy general director, RTR.
"Dalet offered an open system that would integrate our expansive operation to maximize inter-station communications and sharing while incorporating innovative technologies that ensured our future expansion and scalability. Further, Dalet has a successful track record here in Russia with our sister company Radio Rassiya; solidifying their abilities to deliver on the technology promise," says Malinin.
