Minnesota Public Radio has deployed a Dalet Radio Suite system at its news center in St. Paul, according to Dalet Digital Media Systems.

The installation is the first phase in a revamping of MPR technical infrastructure, Dalet said in a statement, aimed at improving news production and playout system efficiency for the network’s on-air and online content. Dalet quoted MPR Manager of Media Production Systems Doug Rowe saying MPR moved from a series of “siloed” production operations to an integrated workflow with desktop tools.

Approximately 100 journalists are using Dalet Radio Suite to produce news packages and newscasts, distributed to 34 public radio stations in the region, Dalet said.

Dalet is integrated with MPR’s Axia Livewire audio over IP routing system; users send studio-grade audio to Axia AoIP networks via network interface cards.

Phase One of the project is complete. Planned are upgrades to MPR’s classical music service and program syndication unit.

Dalet Digital Media Systems is headquartered in France; its U.S. office is in New York.
