Dalet Augments Game-To-Fans Workflows At SportsInnovation 2018

Dalet spotlighted new features and functionality for its Galaxy five media asset management (MAM) and workflow orchestration platform at the SportsInnovation 2018 conference held in Düsseldorf, Germany, from May 8-9.

Dalet’s MAM platform addresses the entire sports content life cycle—from conception to consumption—providing organizations with unified content acquisition and analysis as well as fast-paced highlights and live show production control in parallel with its multiplatform publishing.

Dalet Galaxy five delivers a number of important functional enhancements and three major technology innovations that augment sports media operations and enable new sports workflows. The first enables sports organizations to leverage AI across the workflow, the second leverages hybrid infrastructures with on-premises and Cloud deployments, and the third puts digital and social media at the core of the operations.

Luc Comeau, head of sports strategy, Dalet, said the Galaxy five platform unifies assets and resources, allowing you to connect remote teams and sites to a data model and framework that provides actionable insights and supports augmented productions workflows. This helps monetize sports assets and create the ultimate fan experience across all channels.

“At SportsInnovation 2018, we showcased how practical applications of these new frameworks and purpose-built sports content capabilities,” he said, “including new artificial intelligence integrations, comprehensive social media operations and hybrid workflows, manage all stages of the media lifecycle and deliver more value to the organization right here and now, while building a robust and flexible foundation for continuous adaptation.” 

Dalet’s Galaxy five offers comprehensive and collaborative editing tools to fit any workflow and editor’s needs.

With integration for industry standard sports feeds and cognitive services such as Face Recognition, Dalet can augment all types of sports organizations’ existing live and archival content data sets with comprehensive external data, significantly streamlining the overall content enrichment process. Users can then leverage Dalet’s fast production tools to quickly locate best possible assets to use from inventory and make informed decisions that enhance audience engagement or facilitate further monetization and licensing opportunities of the assets.

Sportscast, a subsidiary of DFL-Bundesliga, has implemented Dalet as its “Living Library.” Providing the host signal in HD and capturing sports data via OPTA integration, Sportscast manages the archives for all Bundesliga matches. The volume of content housed in the DFL's 5 PetaBytes vaults increases by approximately 5,000 hours a year.

Dalet Galaxy offers Sportscast a unified catalogue and core infrastructure complemented by orchestrated workflows and task-specific tool sets for each business area enabling media organizations like DFL Bundesliga to deploy a single MAM for individual parts of the business or enterprise-wide. Other Dalet sports customers include teams and venues such as the Los Angeles Dodgers and Lakers (Spectrum Sports), OM TV, Benfica TV, and Toronto Maple Leafs; broadcasters and networks such as Mediaset, CBS Sports, Fox Sports 1 and Perform.
