A Galaxy of Enhancement for Dalet at IBC

Advancements in file management, collaborative tools and enterprise capabilities are top of Dalet’s list at IBC.

Enhancing the production route to distribution, the new Dalet 'Work Order' in the Dalet Galaxy MAM provides the visibility both operators and managers need. Work Orders are imported from a third-party system as an object into Galaxy and users can then view the progress at any point during the project by opening the associated Work Order object.

The new Dalet Media Packages feature also simplifies the ability to manage complex assets across the enterprise. At a glance, Dalet users can see all of the elements associated with a specific complex asset, in preparation for multi-platform delivery for example, including the relationships between assets, visually mapped out.

Topping the list of new collaborative offerings shown at IBC from Dalet is deeper integration between Adobe Premiere Pro and the Dalet Brio and Dalet Galaxy platforms. Via the Adobe Panel, Dalet Brio operators can start, stop, monitor, quality check and ingest directly from the Adobe Premiere Pro interface.

The redesigned chat and messaging module provides Galaxy, Dalet WebSpace and the Dalet On-the-Go mobile app with a unified, modern chat interface with support for persistent chats, group chats, messaging offline users and much more.

The consolidation of business in the broadcast industry has left a gap in the skills required to handle complex file-based caption and subtitle workflows. Dalet is filling that gap with a standards-based cross-platform strategy for the handling of captioning workflow across its three platforms – Dalet Galaxy, Dalet Brio and Dalet AmberFin. With the ability to read and write standards-constrained TTML, caption and subtitle data is searchable and editable inside the Dalet Galaxy MAM.

Dalet AmberFin extracts and inserts subtitle and caption data to and from standard subtitle and caption transport, while Dalet Brio is able to capture caption- and subtitle-containing ancillary data packets to disk and play them back.

Extending existing UHD capabilities, Dalet AmberFin now supports high-quality up- and down-conversion to and from UHD to HD/SD in the scalable and fault-tolerant transcoder for a range of formats, as well as playback to the desktop or 4k monitoring. Dalet Brio brings UHD into the fold with support for ingest and playback via its client applications Media Navigator, Remote Recorder/Player and Multicamera Manager.

Support for Matrox XMIO3 and LE4 hardware in Dalet Brio is also enabled.See Dalet at IBC stand 8.B77
