​Al Rayyan TV With Dalet

Dalet Galaxy five provides the foundation for wholesale content production and distribution at Qatar’s Al Rayyan TV.

A subsidiary of the Al Rayyan Media and Marketing Company, Al Rayyan TV is known for its Qatari cultural programming, offering a range of in-house and locally produced entertainment, magazines and news-oriented shows. The enterprise-wide revamp of the technical infrastructure is part of the broadcaster’s move to its new broadcast facility located in Souq Waqif, Doha.

Mohamad Naim Al Said, Engineering Department Director, Al Rayyan, explains, “The business goal driving this upgrade is to meet the needs and expectations of the Qatari viewers and expatriates for a more robust program offering. Since we are a tapeless environment and to allow our teams to produce and share content internally much more efficiently, accelerating our production schedules while dedicating more time to crafting high-quality packages, we decided to go with Dalet Galaxy 5 as a collaborative software that centralizes our valuable assets under one single system.”

Key components include a centralized content catalogue (MAM), search and media management; collaboration between all users, including editors on Adobe Premiere Pro CC through Dalet Xtend; centralized ingest management through Dalet Brio video server, and Dalet AmberFin scalable transcoding. Production and management teams across the operations can access the archives, having more options for program content thanks to seamless integration through the Dalet API.
