Dalet Orchestration Streamlines Media Supply Chain

The Dalet Orchestration solution combines a powerful orchestration layer with a state-of-the-art BPM engine, advanced user tasks management with associated tools, a wide range of connectors to the media ecosystem and a dedicated dashboard for real-time monitoring and business intelligence reporting.


Designed to Integrate the Media Enterprise and Unify Operations

Content owners, post-production houses, broadcasters and other media organizations face the challenge of adapting to the media industry’s constant change, producing and delivering content to an increasing number of platforms, in a growing number of versions and formats. To stay ahead of the pack there is no choice but embracing change and getting the entire organization to become as agile as the requirements put on the business. The key to achieve this lies in the way the assets are managed and the workflows are distributed across the operation.
 


Orchestration for Media Operations

Powered by Dalet Galaxy, Dalet Orchestration automates configurable processes combining system services and customized user tasks, leveraging rich assets to enable complex tasks such as EDL, Playlist and Package creation.
 


Reducing the Complexity of Multiplatform Distribution

Distributing effectively to a wide variety of outlets is one of the key challenges for broadcasters and media organizations today. From social media to websites and linear broadcast, the need for an agile, orchestrated solution is greater than ever to reduce complexity and the number of steps required to publish rich, multimedia content.
 


Bringing Visibility

Delivered with a full Report Center, the solution brings Business Intelligence to the organization, allowing users at various levels to monitor and analyze key indicators about their operations in order to make more informed immediate decisions and over time build proper data-driven strategies.
 


Simple-to-Use Workflow Design Tools

A drag-and-drop web-based interface enables users to easily configure simple to complex workflows, where administrators can define naming conventions of assets, inputs, outputs and which assets to effect at various stages in the workflow. The rich library of workflow components associated to the native Dalet stencils ensures that any business scenario can be supported, across a variety of industries and use cases.

System-Wide Monitoring Identifies Problems and Eliminates Pain Points

Users with appropriate rights can benefit from a real-time monitoring of complex end-to-end workflows in graphical and chronological views. The entire workflow progress, as well as the current task progress are presented in a user-intuitive interface. If a particular process in the workflow fails, the user can correct the issue, and with a click of the ‘retry’ button the workflow can continue from the point of failure rather than having to start the whole workflow process over again.

Connecting Systems and Services to Eliminate Silos

The Dalet Orchestration solution comes with a wide range of out-of-the-box connectors, from industry standards like FIMS to pre-built custom partner technology integrations covering simple file-based exchange - connecting file transfer applications, HSM, QC, Media Transcoders and Content Analysis, to complex asset-based connectors enabling a bi-directional communication with systems such as PAM/MAM/DAM, CMS, OVP, NRCS, Graphic systems, Traffic, Scheduling and Billing Systems. 
 
Further to this, the public WebServices API allows for any ad-hoc integration to be developed in house or by a contractor.
