Next up on our #PowerOfDalet blog series, and following up on our article two weeks ago on the Power of Analytics in Dalet AmberFin, we are now exploring the Power of Monitoring in Dalet Galaxy. While you can (almost) always troubleshoot and find a way to make your media files work, wouldn’t it be even better if you could maintain and even optimize your system performances over time, and identify potential issues at an early stage, before trouble sets in? If this is the case, we need to...

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of visiting BVE in London, UK. Broadcast Video Expo, to give it its full name, is a regional trade show that takes place annually, aimed at individuals and business in the video industry. As an exhibitor, it’s not long after the show doors open that somebody from the organizer’s sales team will visit and try to secure our participation for the following year. To do this, they present a pack full of statistics and analysis that demonstrate how...

Is there any VTR here? When did you last use a VTR to ingest content? Most of you will answer "a loooong time ago,” but they are still there, in a room corner, hidden by papers. VTRs are not used anymore for ingest but are still needed as players for legacy material. Think about your good old cassette tapes that you put in your Sony Walkman from time to time when you feel nostalgic; no one is using it anymore to record music. Nowadays everybody is using some hardware box with...

Let’s start with a loaded question: is it possible to agree on a single definition for Media Asset Management (MAM) in 2016? I am pretty sure some of you are smiling and might remember this article from the Dalet Academy, where Bruce Devlin received as many definitions as the number of persons surveyed! While all vendors more or less agree on the main goal of a MAM - to allow media professionals to make more and better programs with fewer costs involved - the way that this translates into...

In the past, there was a clear division between television, radio and print news. In a media conglomerate, it was very common to deploy several teams to cover a single event, with different stories produced for radio, television, print and, more recently, digital news outlets. This division caused both inefficiencies in terms of human resources and inconsistencies in terms of news production. Obviously, synergy was not part of the equation… Let’s take a step back, shed light on...

A long time ago in a time in a laboratory far, far away, a small team unpacked a shiny new server and ran their media software. Discovering that they could get standard definition video to decode and encode at almost real time, the transcode market was born. Thanks to Moore’s law and a little performance optimization, things progressed rapidly and, for a little over a decade, the bulk of the transcoding market was all about getting the codecs right. The rise of online services, the move...

With advanced VOD (Video on Demand) streaming services such as Netflix, HBO GO and Hulu, viewers can access full seasons of television shows, where each program follows a common template, organized by seasons and episodes, with trailers, poster frames and information sections to go along with it. (Picture when you re-watched the entire Friends series – admit it, you did – how all of the content was uniformly formatted and displayed). What viewers are innocently unaware of are the...
