Dalet AmberFin Release Adds Dolby Vision And Socionext Acceleration

The latest release of the Dalet AmberFin media processing platform includes Dolby Vision for HDR. AmberFin can also be enhanced with hardware acceleration tools such as the M820L HEVC encoder plugin card from SoC (System On a Chip) specialist Socionext.

Steve Higgins, Product Manager, Dalet AmberFin, states, “The latest release of the Dalet AmberFin media processing engine marks a new era for this renowned high-quality content processor. Whether you process on-premises, in the cloud or with a mix of both; the efficiency of the processor coupled with high throughput and exceptional audio-visual quality are key for delivering your content in a timely and cost-conscious fashion.”

Dalet AmberFin media processing capabilities enable automated Dolby Vision mastering and distribution workflows that generate outputs from IMF, through broadcast, cable and satellite packages to OTT HLS and DASH bundles. The integrated BPMN-compliant workflow engine and API let administrators configure user interfaces, assign tasks for operators, and push through ad-hoc QC processes.

Dalet AmberFin's file outputs can vary in packaging sophistication from simple MP4s through to complex IMF packages that are automatically synthesized from collections of input files and automation instructions. 

Jean-Christophe Coin, CEO from French Post-House VDM testifies, "By integrating Dalet AmberFin with our Dalet Galaxy MAM platform we have managed to build the Content Factory that we always dreamed of. Work orders for original and versioned content flow quickly and efficiently through our facility with human operators lending creative skills where required and automation fulfilling all other processes".

Higgins concludes, “Whether your outputs are high bitrate JPEG2000 and ProRes or low bitrate H.264 and HEVC, the platform offers advanced features like outstanding software-only, cloud-friendly frame rate conversion and sophisticated interlace handling that will ensure your content is created quickly and with quality that viewers will love regardless of their delivery bandwidth.”
