High-density platform to ingest & playout your media
Dalet Brio is an innovative and cost-effective platform for broadcast customers looking for non-proprietary hardware to digitize and playback their content, either as a complement or replacement of their existing video servers. Built on an IT-based input and output video platform, it seamlessly integrates with Dalet Solutions to provide a highly flexible and scalable end-to-end solution.
Dalet Brio units are designed to ingest and playout broadcast quality video in SD, HD and UHD formats. They come in a variety of input / output or local / central storage combinations. Each unit is built on robust IT equipment with built-in redundancy.
Flexible codec support
Dalet Brio supports a very wide range of software codecs. In order to ensure maximum interoperability, industry standard wrappers such as MXF or MOV and AVI are supported, enabling seamless workflow integration with third party NLEs and Dalet production tools. Dalet Brio supports DV-based Codecs, AVCi, AVC LongG HD, Sony XAVC-Intra and Long GOP HD Playout Support and most of the MPEG2 family including intra and long-GOP (IMX and XDcam HD), H264 and even proprietary Codecs such as ProRes, DNxHD and Sony SRMaster (SStP). All formats can be played out back-to-back seamlessly, with up- and down-conversion when required.
Innovative system architecture
Dalet Brio can work either with its own local storage, directly attached to a SAN, in a hybrid configuration or to Amazon S3 and S3 compatible storages. Units can be added with ease to an existing Dalet solution, so you can size your infrastructure for your immediate purpose, while ensuring future scalability, whether it’s massive ingest for a MAM project or news playout for your newsroom upgrade.
Dalet Brio can be part of Dalet Galaxy Architecture for Ingest and Playout but can also fit into third-party MAM, NRCS and Playout control systems with VDCP and BVW protocol. With Brio supporting FIMS standards, Adobe Premiere can control Dalet Brio for ingest as a plugin as well as Ingest to AVID Interplay/ISIS and Apple FCP X.
Rich feature set
Dalet Brio can play any supported files, including a mix of SD, HD and UHD, on the same timeline. Brio allows for on-the-fly cross-, up- and down-conversion of the video signal, as well as aspect ratio modifications. In addition, Dalet Brio natively includes graphics capabilities for simple branding such as bugs/logo insertion, text crawler or animations.
