Dalet To Unveil New Dalet Galaxy MAM System

At the 2018 NAB Show, Dalet will unveil Dalet Galaxy five, a new version of the company’s media asset management and workflow orchestration platform that offers a number of enhancements and three major technology innovations that will help augment media operations and enable new types of business models.

The first enables broadcasters and media organizations to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) across the workflow, the second leverages hybrid infrastructures with on-premises and Cloud deployments, and the third puts social media at the core of the operations.

Arnaud Elnecave, vice president of marketing at Dalet, said the company will show how this new version delivers more value with practical applications of new AI integrations, hybrid operations and social media workflows, along with the many enhancements across editing, show automation, multiplatform production, workflow orchestration and collaboration.

The new Dalet Galaxy five AI framework connects, orchestrates and fine-tunes purpose-driven combinations of AI models, enabling media organizations to build intelligent workflows that assist users with recommendations, facilitate collaboration with smart matching, and use predictive analytics for better provisioning and automated decision-making.

“For media operations to get full business value from AI, it requires the right method and the appropriate platform,” Elnecave said. “[Our] new AI framework is designed to orchestrate combinations of cognitive services, fine-tune the models, version the data sets, align them with customers’ taxonomies, and eventually surface the results at various levels of the Dalet application stack to provide actionable insights and real business value to the users and to the organization.”

The first application to leverage this new AI framework, called Dalet Content Discovery, includes new module uses data generated by cognitive services, combined with existing metadata, to build smart content recommendations for editorial and creative teams. Deployed as part of the Dalet Unified News Operations and Sports Production solution, Dalet Content Discovery leverages automatic content tagging, topic extraction and key phrase searches, orchestrating a combination of Auto Indexing and Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology.

The Dalet Social Media framework, also part of the new Galaxy Five, allows newsrooms to treat social media as an integrated part of their overall news operation. Journalists can harvest, analyze, produce and deliver fast-paced news on social media platforms alongside traditional outlets. The story-centric workflow offers familiar indicators such as number of views, likes, shares, as well as audience comments and threads. Visual engagement data lets journalists know how their posts are performing with their audience and discover new angles audiences are expecting. With analytical tools and dynamic content at their fingertips, journalists can quickly evolve posts into deeper stories or segue into a new angle. New capabilities include social media popularity indicators, Twitter harvester, scheduling and approval of social posts, expanded emoji library, contextual graphics and subtitles.

Other features of the new platform include support for: hybrid workflows and Operations; enhanced workflow orchestration; component-based workflows for multiplatform productions; enhanced collaboration; comprehensive editing; show automation; and improved business intelligence.

The Dalet Galaxy is the company’s enterprise media asset management (MAM) and orchestration platform that unifies the content chain by managing assets, metadata, workflows and processes across multiple and diverse production and distribution systems. Specially tailored for news and media workflows, this unique technology platform helps broadcasters and media professionals increase productivity while providing operational and business visibility.
