Perform, the digital sports content and media group, has selected Dalet Galaxy as the media asset management and orchestration platform for the launch and daily operations of its live and on-demand sports platform DAZN in Japan.

DAZN, which launched in Japan in August last year, is a rapidly growing subscription-based OTT provider of multimedia sports content. Its offer in Japan is based around Perform’s 10-year rights agreement to broadcast the domestic premier J.League games live streams, highlights and magazine programmes.

To facilitate the production and distribution of highlights and magazine content, as well as share the high value assets with its UK site, Perform extended its existing relationship with Dalet and implemented an end-to-end production workflow powered by the Dalet Galaxy platform in its Tokyo facility. The agile Dalet Galaxy platform serves to connect and orchestrate the ecosystem of technologies used at DAZN, including Evertz Dream Catcher, Xendata, Qualstar, Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Avid ProTools.

“Dalet has shown its worth in managing the large volumes of data generated daily for the J.League. Through its advanced features we have been able to craft ingest workflows that automatically fill out metadata forms based on the file extensions, move media to its allocated location, and enable retention policies based on the media type,” explains Robin Williams, Perform Group post engineering manager, Tokyo. “These workflows have allowed the DAZN team to maximise output efficiency while increasing the value of all content thanks to rich metadata collection within Dalet Galaxy.”

Dalet Galaxy manages content ingest from satellite sources via the Dalet Brio I/O environment, orchestrating all asset transactions for the DAZN VOD workflow. Web-based tools such as Dalet WebSpace let staff quickly assemble and deliver highlight packages and magazine show content to the DAZN platform and archives, while modules such as Dalet Xtend for Adobe Premiere Pro CC bring post-production into the main workflow with bidirectional metadata tracking.

Dalet AmberFin takes care of all media processing with integrated ingest, mastering, QC and review functionality. Flexible Dalet API-based integrations with third-party systems allow Perform to design workflows tailored for its Japanese operation.
