Dalet unveils new integrated platforms
Dalet Digital Media Systems unveiled its new platform lineup: Dalet Brio (high-density ingest and playout), Dalet AmberFin (high-quality transcoding), and Dalet Galaxy (enterprise MAM). These three distinct, yet tightly integrated platforms enable Dalet to answer both the current and future requirements of the media industry with a range of complementary products and modules that address targeted applications as well as combine to offer best-in-class business solutions.
An expert in MAM-driven workflows, Dalet has been actively looking to add value to video processing, an essential component of all broadcast media. AmberFin, a sophisticated platform for video ingest, complex media manipulation, transcoding and quality control (QC) solutions within the Dalet family, extends and enhances the company’s integrated workflow capabilities. Unique among transcode vendors, AmberFin has developed its own video processing technology and set of patents.
“By integrating resources and innovative technologies into three unique and collaborative platforms, Dalet can address the changing needs of the industry driven by growing consumer demands for more content on more devices,” commented Ben Davenport, director of marketing, Dalet. “The combination of these three platforms allows us to offer the most complete and forward-thinking solutions for media organizations to optimize their human resources and media assets. Operators in news, sports and programming will reap tremendous efficiencies and productivity by applying Dalet’s latest technologies.”
Moreover, customers need not fear being locked down to any particular solution. Dalet’s non-proprietary, open-systems approach permits interoperability between its technology and third-party solutions.
Dalet Galaxy is the latest and most advanced version of the Dalet Media Asset Management platform. The landmark development initiative leverages more than 10 years of successful MAM development and customer input. Dalet Galaxy is the industry’s first business-centric, Media Asset Management platform for managing media workflows, systems and assets throughout the multimedia production and distribution chain.
IBC2014 sees Dalet highlight a number of new features and enhancements to the Dalet Galaxy including optimized, multi-version, multi-lingual program preparation workflows. Dalet will also preview the latest integration to Adobe Anywhere.
The Dalet Brio platform is designed to facilitate the ingest and playout of broadcast-quality video in SD and HD formats. New for IBC2014, the Brio3 video server packs up to 12 physical channels into a compact chassis with the embedded 3D graphics engine, Dalet Cube and a variety of storage combinations. Dalet Brio features a combination of cost-effective standard IT components with built-in redundancy.
Dalet Brio embeds critical applications that facilitate a wide range of production tasks including sports logging, highlight production, replay, gang ingest, gang playout and more. Applications include Multi-camera Recording, VTR Ingest and Print to Tape, Loop Record, Time Delay Player, Multichannel Player with Graphics, and Highlights Production, making Dalet Brio an ideal workflow solution for fast-paced, task-specific productions such as news, sports and studio.
Dalet AmberFin is a high-quality, scalable transcoding platform with fully integrated ingest, mastering, QC and review functionalities, enabling facilities to make great pictures in a scalable, reliable and interoperable way. AmberFin software runs on cost-effective, commodity IT hardware that can adapt and grow as the needs of your business change.
At IBC, Dalet will launch its implementation of the GPU-accelerated, motion-compensated frame rate conversion technology, in partnership with Cinnafilm, delivering fast, high-quality standards conversion. As part of the Dalet AmberFin Advanced Adaptive Temporal Transform Toolbox (AT)3, Cinnafilm Tachyon joins the existing CPU-based frame rate converter and ACC advanced cadence correction and removal.
