​BBC Wales Media Manages With Dalet Galaxy

BBC Wales has selected the Dalet Galaxy MAM for its new media facility in Cardiff. This will offer a centralized content repository and provide tools to orchestrate workflows and media processes across production, news, studios and delivery departments.

All systems and sub-systems deployed in future phases will connect to the Dalet Galaxy hub. The Dalet Workflow Engine will enable the BBC to orchestrate a combination of user tasks and media services ranging from ingest, transcoding and QC, to logging, editing, media packaging and distribution. Its interface allows users to model business processes, picking from a palette of stencils operations such as user tasks and notifications, media and metadata services, gateways, timeout and error management, and more.

As the core media hub, Dalet Galaxy will be deployed as the cornerstone of the new digital facility. All systems and sub-systems deployed in future phases will connect to this hub. The Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN)-compliant Dalet Workflow Engine will enable the BBC to orchestrate a combination of user tasks and media services ranging from ingest, transcoding and QC, to logging, editing, media packaging and distribution. An intuitive workflow designer interface allows users to model business processes, picking from a palette of stencils operations such as user tasks and notifications, media and metadata services, gateways, timeout and error management, and much more.

In addition, Dalet will be supplying a new Dalet HTML application for simplified management of camera card ingests and its Dalet Brio video server. Supporting both SDI and IP, the versatile, high-density Dalet Brio ingest and playout platform adheres to the SMPTE 2110 standards, allowing broadcasters to step into the future of IP while retaining the security of SDI.

The BBC will also work with Grass Valley and Cisco on the development of systems and workflows within the new building.

Stating that IP will give the staff “a level of creative freedom about how we produce our content that we've never had before,” Gareth Powell, BBC Wales' chief operating officer, said, "We want to harness the benefits of IP technology to provide the best-possible tools to our content-makers and to free them from many of the historic constraints we've faced at our current HQ in Llandaff.”
