Dalet to showcase advanced MAM solutions
Dalet Digital Media Systems will showcase Dalet Enterprise Edition, an advanced Media Asset Management (MAM) platform, and technology solutions. Dalet Enterprise Edition offers end-to-end media management, a powerful workflow engine, and multiple integration paths to unify disparate systems.
Dalet Enterprise Edition provides operational flexibility for managing content across multiple production, distribution, and business systems. On the IBC floor, Dalet will demonstrate Dalet Enterprise Edition packaged with specialized toolsets designed to streamline news, sports, program preparation, and archive workflows — Dalet Sports Factory, Dalet News Suite, Dalet Media Life, and Dalet Radio Suite.
“Our MAM-driven solutions are unique and can expand business potential,” says Stephane Schlayen, chief operating officer, Dalet. “They combine the exhaustive media and metadata management capabilities of the Dalet MAM platform with tailored production toolsets that boost efficiency. Users can access tools to ingest, edit, script, schedule, playout, and distribute their audio, video, and multimedia from their desktops. Metadata can also be managed, enriched, and searched — all from the same interface. The MAM layer with cross-system metadata management, customized reports, and workflow engine delivers genuine business benefits. It improves productivity, consolidates information, adds value to assets, and facilitates publication to new media platforms.”
Dalet Enterprise Edition is an open platform that can be integrated with a wide range of non-linear editors, including Avid, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Adobe Premier. Graphics, archive, automation, and other systems can also be integrated using a variety of methods, including using SOA compliant tools such as Web Services APIs. The highly scalable architecture and design of Dalet Enterprise Edition allows for future enhancements and the incorporation of new technologies.
Dalet Sports Factory
Dalet Sports Factory is a comprehensive Media Asset Management platform designed for cross-system media and metadata management in the most demanding sports operations. The MAM capabilities of Dalet Sports Factory can be used through integrations with industry-standard sports production systems, logging systems, NLEs, and various archive systems.
“Sports Factory is really unique,” says Kevin Savina, director of product management, Dalet. “Tools for each task are included, but the underlying technology ties it all together so it can be seen from a single interface. All the different data, media, and workflow elements — the video, metadata with multiple camera angles, and logs. And our integration capabilities with other systems mean means there are no silos anymore. It’s all fully integrated; everything is there and immediately available for searching and retrieval. You can bring clips or melts right into your production chain wherever they are stored.”
