​Dalet Bring AmberFin to Microsoft Azure

Dalet and Microsoft have launched the Dalet xN Standards Converter on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. It is presented as “the first truly accessible file-based standards conversion tool”.

“AmberFin has long set the benchmark for file-based standards conversion,” emphasizes Ben Davenport, director of marketing, Dalet. “With AmberFin, we made file-based standards conversion a reality by exploiting high-performance computing and making high-quality international video exchange more accessible. Today, we’re doing the same thing all over again, but taking it one step further by bringing those capabilities to the cloud and making international video exchange available to the masses.”

“By making the Dalet xN Standards Converter available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, Dalet democratizes the capabilities of AmberFin international video exchange. Users simply upload their video files and select the desired output video standard,” said Sudheer Sirivara, General Manager, Azure Media Services and Azure CDN, Microsoft Corp.

Features include the ability to handle multiple transcode projects simultaneously and an on-demand pay-per-use model.
