Dalet Brio Provides Smarter Video I/O

France TV, FOX Network Group Europe, MediaCorp and San Jose Sharks tout the capabilities of Dalet’s Brio server.

In a market that is moving increasingly away from proprietary hardware-based video servers towards software-based solutions Dalet Brio is commended by several owners as their ideal solution for managing complex multi-channel recordings, conversions and multiplatform playout scenarios.

In France, VDM employed the Dalet Galaxy MAM platform featuring the Dalet Workflow Engine including the BPMN 2.0-compliant designer and two Dalet Brio servers to manage its expanding audio/visual program preparation and production workflow.

“With Dalet Brio, VDM can manage vast amounts of content in the growing number of formats necessary to deliver media to just about any screen or platform in existence,” says Dalet.

At Fox Italy and Fox UK, several Dalet Brio video servers facilitate content ingest and delivery needs of both facilities, working in conjunction with the underlying Dalet Galaxy platform to streamline workflows. “As a result, all programming content is centralized in one database, enhancing QC operations, promo production and delivery of new and repackaged program content,” states Dalet.

As part of the broadcaster’s ambitious MAM strategy, MediaCorp’s Content Media eXchange program standardizes ingest of material across 20 Dalet Brio server ports, as well as harmonizes the archive workflow for the entire MediaCorp facility under command and control of the Dalet Galaxy platform.

The San Jose Sharks have deployed Dalet Brio to manage ingest of the SAP Center's eight camera feeds.

“With the move to virtualized infrastructure, I/O video servers that can take advantage of the new technology opportunities and manage streams-to-files and files-to-streams are part of the strategic conversation,” states Matthieu Fasani, Dalet Brio product manager, Dalet. “Today, Dalet customers utilizing Brio not only benefit from the highly convenient web-based administration and extensive codec and format support, but they are also ensured that their I/O operations are IP and cloud ready, giving them the best of all worlds.

“Dalet Brio allows customers to improve the way they manage the entire I/O operation,” adds Fasani. “For example, the metadata logging capabilities of Dalet Logger significantly enrich content recorded into any MAM, PAM or CMS system, which in turn optimizes productions. Same for content recorded to the cloud. Content and logs become available to anyone around the globe, opening up opportunities for new workflows and revenue streams.”
