Dalet releases Dalet Cut, web-based video editor
Dalet announced the release of Dalet Cut, the cloud-native, lightning-fast multimedia and multiplatform editor fully integrated within the Dalet ecosystem. Available today for Dalet Pyramid news customers and in Summer 2023 for Dalet Flex media workflow customers, Dalet Cut powers live web-based editing from anywhere with native access to all assets including clips, sequences, projects and graphics, even on limited bandwidth. The intuitive user experience enables content producers and storytellers to collaborate with unparalleled speed and efficiency, delivering better audience experiences across linear and non-linear channels. In a few clicks, content targeted for linear channels can be repackaged for social and OTT platforms, optimizing resources and saving time.
“Dalet Cut is a game-changing web-based editor. There is no other solution on the market that provides such speed, mobility and format agility. The native integration of the editing process into the wider media production and storytelling workflow brings tremendous value through collaboration,” said Robin Kirchhoffer, CMO, Dalet. “In news production specifically, Dalet Cut seamlessly blends field and newsroom editing workflows — offering exactly the same user experience to both. Designed for all skill sets, Dalet Cut simplifies editing and production workflows so that there is no training required for new users.”
Dalet Cut benefits for news workflows

- Create multimedia news stories from anywhere – Cloud-native, browser-based proxy editing coupled with intuitive tools for story creation eliminates the need for VPN, media movement, local rendering or lengthy training. Journalists, producers, editors and freelancers can quickly come up to speed and use Dalet Cut to collaborate on news stories for digital, social, TV and radio from anywhere.
- Produce digital-native content – The digital-first approach features templates to adjust aspect ratios for various video requirements, ensuring stories are prepared in the right shape and form. Users can write scripts, edit content, record narration, add graphics and manipulate captions. Innovative script-to-graphic and AI-powered translations enable users to add impactful narration graphics to stories quickly and easily.
- Collaborate better with story-centric workflows – Dalet Cut is natively connected to Dalet Pyramid planning calendars, assignments, rundowns, archives and more. With full access to Dalet Pyramid shared resources, users can easily collaborate and focus on story development and editorial decisions without the burden of trying to locate relevant content. Dalet Pyramid gives Adobe Premiere Pro editors full access to the newsroom, boosting remote workflows.
