​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.
