Dalet Develops Cloud-based Standards Converter Service For International Video Exchange

Dalet Digital Media Systems, working together with Microsoft has launched its Dalet xN Standards Converter, a file-based, on-demand pay-per-use standards conversion tool available exclusively through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

Ben Davenport, director of marketing at Dalet, said, “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.”

Based on AmberFin technology, the Dalet xN Standards Converter offers high-quality motion-compensated frame-rate conversion in the cloud.

“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.

Offering high quality, on-demand format and frame rate conversion, the Dalet xN Standards Converter identifies the simplest configuration and outputs the final video product in the highest quality possible. It’s incredibly easy to use, and the results are consistently outstanding.

Among the notable features of the on-demand pay-per-use model are: high quality video output, a user-friendly interface to prepare, trigger and monitor the conversion process; the ability to handle multiple transcode projects simultaneously; and content can be uploaded and downloaded from anywhere in the world.
