IBC 2017: Dalet Digital Media Systems collaborates with Veritone to leverage AI technology for Dalet Galaxy Customers
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, and Veritone, provider of artificial intelligence (AI) insights and solutions, have announced a new collaboration. The new alliance will allow Dalet Galaxy customers to leverage Veritone’s AI technology for automated metadata extraction and analysis, including speech-to-text transcription, face recognition, translation, object recognition, content moderation, logo recognition, and optical character recognition.
“Artificial Intelligence is one of our customers’ top priorities. They recognize the power of AI to seamlessly and automatically process, transform and analyze data,” says Frederic Roux, VP of sales, Americas at Dalet. “We’re pleased to collaborate with Veritone in this effort to help media organizations capture new opportunities with smart workflow services that can easily become part of their existing installation.”
The amount of multimedia content created and consumed is growing at an exponential pace in all verticals. As broadcasters and media organizations look at the best ways to tame the tsunami, streamline workflows and maximize the value of content, AI-enriched media management and workflow solutions will become a vital part for continued relevance and sustainable growth. Potential business benefits are immense and tangible: augmented production workflows with smart and timely recommendations, better content insights and discovery thanks to intelligent auto-tagging features, automation of more complex tasks in the process and, in the near future, smart resource provisioning and system scaling with self-adaptive capacity planning.
“The rationale behind this collaboration is very simple: a common passion, focus and expertise in the media industry,” says Kevin Savina, director of product strategy at Dalet. “The combination of the two complementary technologies spans across all media workflows, offering smarter services that unleash the potential of content, enhance the production experience, and reduce the complexity of content curation, ultimately enabling customers to create and deliver richer, better content to the right audience at the right time.”
