Dalet Updates Its Media Logistics Platform

A new release of Dalet Flex continues to simplify managing media production and delivery.

“As the media ecosystem evolves, it becomes more complex and a real challenge to navigate for many,” states Mathieu Zarouk, Director Product Strategy, Media Workflows. “Dalet Flex sits at the intersection, offering customers a single source of truth that enables them to effectively manage complex workflows and service license agreements that may involve multiple media packages going to a wide range of destinations.”

The updated FlexXTEND for Adobe Premiere Pro features a revamped user experience that makes FlexMAM’s advanced search capabilities available to editors. Using FlexXTEND, users can trigger rendering of their Premiere Pro sequence on a remote Adobe Media Encoder, “minimizing media movements and freeing up their local system for continued use.”

For storyboarding, content creators can organize sequences in Dalet Flex and share them with other Flex users or send them directly to Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer for further editing.

There’s a new Controlled Vocabulary to bring efficiencies to content categories and makes content more searchable and easier to share. Permissions management on tags collections, thesaurus support, and taxonomy improvements help users dial in faster to the content they need for their productions. Additional search operations (for example “Contains,” “Start with” or “End with”) and user interface improvements make it easier for users to build and visualize even the most specific search queries.

Dalet Flex quotas now allow admins to define concurrency limits on actions and workflows, offering yet another area in which productions can fine-tune processes for efficiency. Productions can optimize costs and efficiency by dynamically sizing their infrastructure to seamlessly support bursts in resource needs thanks to Kubernetes support for media processing services on Cloud infrastructure.
