Dalet Shows News Workflows With AI And Ooyala

The latest version of Dalet’s AI-driven workflow service is a highlight of its IBC exhibit, now integrated with Ooyala Flex. The SaaS platform enables the orchestration of multiple cognitive services in a pay-as-you-go model.

Dalet presents Media Cortex as a tool for optimizing content production, management and publishing by enriching content and automating workflows. In addition to the existing workflows in the MAM Dalet Galaxy five, new Dalet Media Cortex integrations, services and features include smart captioning capabilities, improved news and editorials workflows, and integration with Ooyala Flex Media Platform. 

Raoul Cospen, Director of News Market, Dalet says. “Over the last 18 months, we’ve seen the use of AI transition from experimental trials to real-world deployments. Using AI services to automate repetitive, but essential processes, as well as to augment user workflows with contextual insights and timely recommendations resonates with broadcasters and media companies who have to serve more platforms and more markets with more content than ever before.

“The key to success is to combine the right mix of AI engines for a given use case and expected outcome, then automatically curate and present the data generated as simple, contextual insights surfaced in end users day-to-day tools. Dalet Media Cortex does just this. It enables media professionals to dedicate more of their time to creating and collaborating effectively and media companies to better serve their audiences with higher quality content and personalized multi-platform experiences.”

Integration with the Ooyala Flex Media Platform will automatically add indexed metadata to the Ooyala MAM for curation and distribution, “increasing monetization opportunities for high volume catalogs and archives.”

Dalet Media Cortex is claimed to automate up to 90% of manual captioning work. Its speech-to-text capabilities are available in more than 30 languages.

There are improved news and editorial workflows. New entity detection capability (locations, persons, organizations) with smart assistant facilitates associated content recommendations for stories from planning all the way through production.

A custom dictionary allows users to add specific words that are relevant to an industry, a job, and market, optimizing accuracy and results.

Companies can also use it to build workflows leveraging a combination of microservices to optimize workflow performance.
