Australia’s SBS Goes with Dalet

Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service Corporation (SBS) is centralizing its media operations on the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) platform.

Noel Leslie, CTO for SBS explained, “SBS made a strategic decision to bring our programming content under the management of a single MAM platform. The integrated solution consolidates a number of our existing systems, unifying assets. This will allow for greater collaboration across SBS, and make it easier for us to store, access and share our content, enabling us to do what we do best – telling important diverse stories. We were also looking for a more cost-efficient approach to preparation and distribution that will positively benefit the financial bottom line. We chose to work with Dalet to achieve this in what we are confident will be the beginning of a long term partnership.”

SBS will implement dozens of different workflows and integrate ten different systems with Dalet. The new architecture will bring the broadcaster's archives into the production workflow and provide embedded tools to conduct program preparation as well as emerging new media workflows from a single system.

Task-based and complex processes such as assignments, escalation protocols and error management can be fully automated, orchestrating content flow from the moment it is received to its final destination in multiple languages and formats, with metadata intact.

Key features like Dalet Work Orders track the progress of the work order in its entirety and provide employees access to real-time status data that serves both SBS technical and business decision needs.

The Dalet Galaxy MAM will take over program management and multi-platform publishing with ingest, QC and playout provided by Deluxe Australia as part of their managed services agreement with SBS. Dalet will also integrate with IBMS sales and traffic software from SintecMediaAdobe Premiere NLEs for craft editing, Front Porch Diva for archive and other in-house systems to provide SBS teams with a single user interface to easily access and manage content.
