IBC 2017: Dalet to unveil latest advancements in news, orchestration workflows
Dalet Digital Media Systems will be unveiling several new technology advancements at the 2017 IBC Show (stand 8.B77), including new tools for its Dalet Unified News Operations, the latest advancements in the Dalet Orchestration solution, deeper integration with Adobe Premiere Pro CC, and the latest version of its Dalet Brio high-density I/O platform.
“Key for our customers is the ability to take advantage of emerging technologies that ultimately enable new business opportunities and growth. However, these come at a faster and faster pace. Replacement of key tools and infrastructure with every evolution is not a viable business option, nor is staying with the current siloed infrastructure,” says Arnaud Elnecave, vice president of marketing, Dalet. “Today’s media operations require fluid, collaborative workflows based on an open technology framework such as the Dalet Galaxy platform, which can bend to the flow of new business requirements. All our recent implementations are about enabling this agile transformation for our customers.”
“We will be unveiling several key technology advancements at IBC. These innovations span across all media workflows, offering smarter services that enhance the content production experience, foster collaboration, reduce the complexity of multiplatform distribution and the curation of targeted content, ultimately enabling customers to create and deliver richer, better content to more platforms faster than ever before” says Elnecave.
Unified News Operations
A scalable solution, Dalet Unified News Operations combines all the essential functions of a modern newsroom, offering a suite of collaborative tools that streamline the entire chain of operations. Dalet will introduce new additions to this toolset at the show (detailed below).
Dalet Social Media Panel: As audiences consume their news more and more on social platforms, efficient production and publishing to these outlets have become important. The new Dalet Social Media Pane makes publishing on social channels easier. It also provides a synthetic view of the published stories and their performance with audiences to inform new editorial directions and planning.
Dalet Content Discovery: This new module sets the framework for a new generation of editorial experience, recommending to the journalists and producers a selection of content readily available on the platform that matches their assignments or work in progress.
Advanced News Graphics Workflows: Dalet Cube, the suite of high-quality broadcast graphics tools, boasts a new set of native integrations with the Dalet Galaxy platform for creating and managing CGs, crawlers, tickers, lower-thirds, logos, full-frame graphics and complex 3D animations. Available at various touch points of news production and playout workflow, these new integrations enable quality user experience and new branding efficiencies.
Orchestrating & Streamlining Enterprise Media Workflows
The new Dalet Orchestration solution is an enterprise media management solution designed to integrate content pools and automate workflows across the various verticals of a typical media enterprise – such as programs, promos, news, sports and lifestyle. Dalet Orchestration provides a consolidated view of all media assets across the business with tools to easily automate and optimize workflows from acquisition and production, to distribution of content to multiple broadcast platforms and publishing systems. Delivered with Dalet Report Center, the solution offers critical business intelligence data specifically tailored for media operations, allowing management teams to measure performance throughout the chain and build data-driven strategies.
Deeper Integration with Adobe Premiere Pro CC
The critical connect point for post-production, the recently updated HTML5 Dalet Xtend panel connects Adobe Premiere Pro CC users to the Dalet Galaxy platform, providing a direct gateway to shared assets and facilitating greater collaboration with the rest of the users on the Dalet Galaxy platform – such as journalists, prep editors, sports producers and other production personnel. Editors can save projects or sequences as assets in Dalet Galaxy, and share them with other Adobe Premiere Pro editors connected to Dalet. New features and capabilities include support for multi-sequence export, locator inheritance, configurable metadata forms for exporting content and support for “while” scenarios when exporting from Adobe Premiere Pro.
Video-Over-IP and Virtualizing Your I/O Server
The Dalet Brio high-density I/O platform supports the latest IP standards adopted across the industry – SMPTE 2202-2, SMPTE 2202-6 and the soon-to-be-published SMPTE 2110. The latest version of Dalet Brio no longer has dependency on a physical video board, allowing for a full virtualization of the I/O service, opening doors to more agile, next-generation video network configurations.
