BroadcastAsia 2017: Dalet To Showcase Orchestration, Business Continuity, and Galaxy Platforms
Dalet Digital Media Solutions will present agile media solutions at the BroadcastAsia2017 show (BCA), held in Singapore from May 23-25, on stand 4T3-05, including the Dalet Orchestration Solution, a new range of options for cost-effective Business Continuity; a full suite of tools and data models to manage IMF packages at scale, and enhancements to post-production workflows enabling quality integration with Adobe Creative Cloud and especially Adobe Premiere CC.
Dalet Orchestration is an enterprise, media supply chain orchestration solution that integrates content pools and automates workflows across different verticals (programs, promos, news, sport, lifestyle, etc.), providing a consolidated view of media assets across the business, and enabling easy and efficient distribution of content by the various broadcasting and publishing systems. Delivered with Dalet Report Center, the solution offers business intelligence specifically tailored for media operations in order to measure performance throughout the chain and build sound data-driven strategies.
Dalet Business Continuity offers a range of solutions, based on a secondary site, which can be hosted in an environment of the customer’s choice including on-premise, hosted in a private cloud, or in a public cloud such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. The secondary site provides access to back-up content (video, audio, scripts, rundowns, etc.) replicated from the primary platform – from a few hours up to days or weeks of content, depending on capacity and replication policies.
Available within minutes, all operation-critical workflows defined by the customer’s contingency plan will be switched on. The pay-as-you-go and on-demand infrastructure models of the cloud require minimal upfront investment compared to classic plans that require large capital investment. To manage and package IMF content at scale, the need for a good media asset management (MAM) with integrated Workflow Engine such as Dalet Galaxy becomes critical.
Dalet Galaxy Adds IMF Tools
The enhanced Dalet Galaxy platform offers a sophisticated set of tools to manage mass IMF packaging at the production, distribution and contribution points of a media business. The comprehensive workflow covers the full range of services for IMF package creation, from importing IMF packages natively into the MAM, to visualizing IMF structures and components with Dalet Context Maps, to building versions and supplemental packages with Dalet Track Stack and Version Editor, and eventually wrapping the compositions for distribution using a connector to an IMF-compliant transcode farm such as Dalet AmberFin.
Dalet Xtend Panel for Adobe Premier Pro
The recently updated HTML-5 Dalet Xtend panel connects Adobe Premiere Pro CC users to the Dalet Galaxy MAM, providing a direct gateway to metadata-rich assets and facilitating collaboration with users such as journalists, prep editors, sports producers and other production personnel on the Dalet Galaxy platform. New features and capabilities include support for multi-sequence export, locator inheritance, configurable metadata forms for exporting content, and support for the ‘while’ scenarios when exporting from Adobe Premiere Pro.
