Dalet AmberFin Receives 30% Performance Boost

Updates to Dalet’s transcoding platform in a v11.9 release, include ‘significant performance gains’ and a new browser interface. There’s also built-in support for audio normalization specialists, Emotion Systems.

“The rapid evolution of digital cinema and video technology has given us images that are stunningly good. 4K resolution, HDR and immersive audio are not only appreciated by today’s viewers but expected too,” states Eric Carson, director, Dalet AmberFin Product Strategy. “Viewing screens, including smartphones, can reveal image quality - good and bad - with forensic precision. Consequently, it's more important than ever that the original image quality achieved by a film director or TV producer is preserved for audiences to experience as intended. We are committed to keeping Dalet AmberFin on the forefront of media processing with continued improvements in speed and usability both on-premises and in the cloud.”

New features include:

Enhancements to the Dalet AmberFin transcoding engine provide, on average, a 30% increase in throughput, offering customers an even faster speed-to-market for high-quality conversions.

New web-based conversion profile editor provides engineers a modern interface for managing day-to-day configuration.

Emotion System’s advanced audio processing and loudness normalization capabilities enhance Dalet AmberFin’s best-in-class video conversion capabilities with loudness correction and global delivery compliance requirements.

Carson concludes, “For many of our clients, media processing is only part of the equation. Packaging for mass distribution is often a requirement. Dalet AmberFin combined with Dalet Flex and Dalet Galaxy five brings a much needed, high-quality transcoding and precision packaging solution for global distribution encoding requirements.”
