Dalet Galaxy Orchestrates Large-Scale IMF Operations

Dalet says its Galaxy MAM and AmberFin transcoder is primed for automating IMF operations at scale.

The Interoperable Mastering Format (IMF) is designed to simplify and standardize the world of multi-platform, multi-lingual, multi-resolution delivery. Devised by the industry and ratified by SMPTE, IMF is an emerging standardized mastering format for facilities required to distribute many profiles and versions with reliable interoperability. To manage and package IMF content at scale, the need for a powerful media asset management (MAM) and orchestration solution such as Dalet Galaxy becomes critical.

Dalet has received Netflix compliance approval for the Dalet AmberFin transcoding platform meaning that producers and facilities needing to create IMF packages for their Netflix targeted content can use Dalet IMF technology to get the job done.

“Today, IMF packages are becoming simpler to create and interchange, but the lack of a fixed file or folder naming scheme is making management of IMF - especially with tens and hundreds of supplemental packages per title - more complex,” explains Bruce Devlin, Dalet chief media scientist. “Implementing a MAM and orchestration platform such as Dalet Galaxy will allow you to scale and industrialize your operation and broker the many IMF workflows with greater ease and accuracy, and at a much lower cost of production.”
