​Dalet On Simplifying Program Preparation and Mastering

Dalet wants to show facilities how they can consign manual programme versioning to the past with its automated asset management tools.

Dalet says it offers a far simpler process for global distribution of content, and the Dalet Workflow Engine, available both in Dalet Galaxy and Dalet AmberFin platforms, “is reinventing the way customers can implement these types of workflows”. Both platforms support IMF, an industry format that serves as a model to assist with and enhance program preparation and mastering. IBC visitors can see how the Dalet AmberFin media orchestration platform bundles media assets into an IMF, which can then be imported by Dalet Galaxy for distribution. Dalet AmberFin can also generate metadata-rich IMF bundles authored with user-focused tools such as those found in Dalet Galaxy.

For the news room, Dalet offers embedded as well as federated tools to plan, collect, research, write, edit and distribute text, audio and video to television, radio, web and social media. 


Enhancements to Dalet Galaxy user interfaces, such as a social media GUI that looks and acts more like a social media publishing platform, make publishing to social easier “allowing broadcasters to better respond to and manage new consumer habits”.


Dalet is showcasing integration with products like NewTek TriCaster and VidiGo multi-camera production systems. “Driven by Dalet Galaxy, radio broadcasters can easily incorporate graphics such as lower-thirds and branding to enhance OTT distribution and maximize sponsorship opportunities, respectively, all while maintaining important graphics metadata that make radio assets more valuable,” says Ben Davenport, director of marketing. “Dalet helps customers navigate and respond to these evolving behaviors by implementing future-proof media infrastructures and scalable workflows that support the content production and distribution demands of complex workflows such as News and Sports today, tomorrow and well into the future. Whilst at the same time, important standards like IMF and technologies such as cloud can be fully exploited by customers right now with Dalet Galaxy and AmberFin to simplify program prep and content exchange.”

Last IBC, Dalet introduced Dalet xN, the company’s cloud-based strategy. This is described as “extending and augmenting cloud and hybrid environments to provide content owners with a truly dynamic and flexible business infrastructure”. This year, Dalet is showing new Dalet xN marketplace apps that aid in national video exchange and delivery, as well as enterprise-wide cloud-enabled workflows. Also at the Dalet stand will be stock footage distributor Clippn, on hand to discuss its implementation of Dalet xN.

Attendees can book private demos or workflow consultations with the company.
