Dalet Launches New Integration for Adobe Audition at NAB 2019
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, announced at NAB 2019 (booth SL6610) the release of Dalet Xtend for Adobe® Audition®, connecting professional audio production to the main content value chain. Adobe Audition offers a comprehensive professional toolset for mixing and editing audio for video, broadcast, and podcast content. The Dalet Xtend panel for Adobe Audition brings support for session management, including the ability to search and browse the categories of the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog. Users can import both audio and video titles with locators as markers into the Adobe Audition timeline, as well as clips, storyboards, and EDLs. Adobe Audition editors can also save sessions as Dalet Xtend titles directly back to the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog and archive without leaving the application. “Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition empowers creatives with wider and deeper access to metadata-rich assets, minimizing the technical complexity of tracking, converting, migrating or even simply locating media across the enterprise thanks to Dalet Galaxy five,” comments Golan Tsarfaty, editing product line manager, Dalet. “With the underlying Dalet Galaxy five platform managing the nuances of the media lifecycle, Adobe Audition audio editors are free to focus on the art of editing, mixing and finishing their packages using the very best audio assets available.” “The Adobe-Dalet collaboration continues to bring expanded capabilities for our customers. Dalet’s new integration for Adobe Audition is a great addition to their panel for Adobe Premiere® Pro,” states Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for Adobe video. “Our customers accessing Dalet’s Audition panel will create new efficiencies in their production workflows, enabling them to focus on their creative output.” Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition governs access to Dalet Galaxy five content hubs and archives, enabling cross operation collaboration with a comprehensive level of metadata tracking and management that ensures asset genealogy stays intact. XYZ explains the user benefits, “Up until now, audio editors would have had to export a limited audio file to a shared folder on the storage platform and then import it into Adobe Audition and vice versa after they were done working with it. Important details such as metadata were lost in the transaction. Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition opens a window into the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog and archive without having to leave the Adobe Audition application. With full access to assets, audio editors can expand their creative palette and view projects as a whole, simplifying their day to day operations, making the most of their valuable time, and freely collaborating with colleagues across the operation. Tsarfaty concludes “Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition is an important step in simplifying professional audio production workflows.

Dalet Introduces Game-Changing Remote Editing Framework at NAB 2019
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, will showcase its new Dalet Remote Editing framework at NAB 2019 (booth SL6610). The highly scalable framework brings the full-featured multimedia editing capabilities and speed to the editors working in the field or at remote offices without requiring a PAM/MAM at every location. Media organizations in fast-paced production markets such as news, sports and reality TV often have extensive in-the-field production needs that are critical to their business. Unmitigated access to content located at the central hub and accelerated media exchange from the field to home and back are paramount for success. The Dalet Remote Editing framework securely connects journalists, producers, editors and other content creators to the central content hub, enabling the in-the-field/remote users to edit, assemble, collaborate and quickly submit packages or download high-resolution media to finalize locally even in low-bandwidth situations. The first release of the new Dalet Remote Editing framework will support Dalet OneCut natively with subsequent updates supporting Dalet Xtend-compatible third-party editing applications. “With the Dalet Remote Editing framework, video editors located just about anywhere have the same robust editing experience as those editors located within the four walls of the central hub, even when they have a degraded network connection,” states Golan Tsarfaty, editing product line manager, Dalet. “Most Dalet customers want to centralize content resources in the main hub yet have a local presence via their remote bureaus, freelancers or simply people working in the field. This new Remote Editing framework provides a gateway to optimize content sharing across multiple locations without requiring the deployment of a MAM or PAM beyond the central hub.” The Dalet Remote Editing framework leverages the AWS infrastructure and Dalet smart-caching technology to eliminate problematic security, latency and other roadblocks that usually limit remote productions, transforming the entire in-the-field video editing experience and workflow for both users and media companies. “It solves two key issues. First, it offers a high-quality user experience when editing content from anywhere; and second, it simplifies the network configurations and infrastructure management for access to central content by remote users,” Tsarfaty adds. “It’s an incredible technical innovation that is going to help our customers make a quantum leap forward with regards to mobility at work, remote productions and working with freelancers.” Dalet Remote Editing framework workflows shown at NAB 2019 At NAB 2019, Dalet will demonstrate how the new editing framework lets journalists working in the field share with the central hub content they’ve captured locally, via a secure HTTPS Internet connection. Simultaneously, they will show how journalists preparing a story while on the go can preview and pull in content from the central catalog or the archive, and mix it with locally captured footage, using a stand-alone editor. In addition to the in-the-field journalist workflow, Dalet teams will demonstrate the efficient cross-site video editing and collaboration capabilities the new framework brings for content exchange between bureaus and sites. “One of the big challenges media organizations faced in enabling a proper in-the-field/remote editing workflow was the costly and somewhat limiting infrastructure available to them,” Tsarfaty explains. “Dedicated hardware, added layers of security for accessing the central hub, and VPN scenarios limited the ability to deploy truly robust remote production workflows and scale at will. These typical setups also hindered the user collaboration and overall experience as you still experienced latency and access issues. With Dalet Remote Editing, there is no overhead. You can scale your productions as you need, pay for infrastructure as you go, and offer the video editing experience your staff requires to create outstanding content, efficiently and quickly, from anywhere. NAB Show attendees will be able to see how this is done right on the Dalet booth.” NAB 2019 attendees can book a private demonstration or workflow consultation with a Dalet expert to learn more about the new Dalet Galaxy five remote editing framework at: https://www.dalet.com/events/nab-show-2019 Dalet Press Briefings at NAB 2019 To schedule a press briefing with Dalet, please contact Alex Molina.

Dalet Galaxy five Propels Delivery of Music, News and Historical Content for Israeli Broadcaster Galei Tsahal
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that Israeli national radio network Galei Tsahal (Galatz) is upgrading to the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM) and Workflow Orchestration platform to enable workflows that better serve its audience with greater access to content across its digital channels and social networks. A leading music radio station that sets the tone and playlist for the country, Galatz is also known for its news and thematic programs featuring politicians, military leaders, and influential citizens. A Dalet customer since 2006, Galatz undertook the upgrade to enhance production and delivery of its music and news-related content through social media networks, enhance its reporters’ abilities to file stories from the field using Dalet On-the-Go, and use AI-powered speech-to-text algorithms to enable wider accessibility to its rich historical archives, which date back to its founding in 1950. “The upgrade to Dalet Galaxy five is enabling us to build a new content value chain, better integrating our social media channels across our operations, and leveraging AI services to make our entire inventory more discoverable and better monetized,” states Izak Pasternak, head of the technical department, Galatz. “We are able to make this quantum leap forward with the confidence of a decade-long partnership that is embedded in collaboration and success.” Amplifying audience engagement With Dalet Galaxy five, Galatz will be able to make all content that is produced in the production system available to social media publishing with a click of a button. Social media content performance (views, likes, shares) will be analyzed by the broadcaster; that data will be used to make better-informed decisions as to what to provide audiences next, helping to deliver a more enjoyable experience to listeners. Because the system is fully integrated with social channels, Galatz will be able to easily tap into the newly indexed archives and distribute topical collections of historical content across social networks - something that they have not been able to do before. Izak explains, “In terms of social media, today there is no connection between the system that is broadcasting content and the social media channels we want to publish to. With more and more people consuming news and content through social networks, it’s imperative for us to move to an integrated platform that can help us engage with audiences on a whole new level. Dalet Galaxy five enables us to do just that.” Reporting from the field Connecting in-the-field reporters directly to the newsroom, Dalet On-the-Go lets journalists organize and submit comprehensive news packages from their mobile device. Users can record interviews, write stories, and assemble and upload packages to the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog for sharing across the station or sending direct to air. AI opens the archives With a vast amount of valuable historic information under its care, Galatz wanted to make its archives open to the public for the first time online. Leveraging Dalet Media Cortex, the new AI cloud service of Dalet Galaxy five, the network applied AI-driven, speech-to-text algorithms to all archived content, turning it into text that is both searchable and accessible via an online portal. "Until now our content producers had to manually add metadata into the media asset management system, then an archivist would review it to make sure it was filled in properly,” explains Izak. “If our archives team wanted to find something, they had to remember how it might be catalogued and in which categories. Going back into the archive to transcribe it all manually would have been cost-prohibitive.” Izak continues, “Now, with Dalet Media Cortex everything is searchable since it’s processed through the speech-to-text engine. This saves us significant resource time and effort. And what’s more important, Israeli citizens can sit at home and enjoy the archive, simply by searching online. Dalet Media Cortex has made it extremely easy to search and find content from any point in time since 1950, which to a large degree, is the history of Israel itself.” Dalet’s Johann Zemmour, general manager of Dalet EMEA and APAC concludes, “Dalet is proven time and time again as a trusted technical partner to help customers achieve successful business transformations. In this case for Galatz, Dalet’s forward-thinking development of AI tools within Dalet Media Cortex enables the network to expand the use of its archives by making an extremely large amount of content available and searchable to its citizens. That could not have been realistically achieved by any other means.” Zemmour concludes, “Galatz recognizes the importance of providing its audience with experiences on the platforms of their choice and worked closely with Dalet to deliver on that demand.” About Dalet Digital Media Systems Dalet solutions and services enable media organisations to create, manage and distribute content faster and more efficiently, fully maximising the value of assets.

10 Things Government Organizations Should Know to Streamline their Media Operations
Government organizations and institutions are facing steep challenges to efficiently manage the massive amounts of multimedia content and associated metadata needed to fulfill their mission to actively reach, inform and better engage with citizens. To overcome these challenges, they require proven solutions that meet their demanding requirements in terms of efficiency, agility, security, cost, and integration. There is a lot that can be learned from the broadcast industry when it comes to optimizing the way you produce, manage and distribute media assets. While not an exhaustive list, this blog provides ten things government agencies and institutions should consider when planning to implement a solution to streamline their media operations. Most of these topics were actually part of discussions I had with customers and partners at GV Expo 2018. If you were not able to attend the show don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss further! Metadata, Metadata, Metadata As organizations increase the amount of media content they store, that content can only be managed and used at its best if it is properly classified, easily discoverable and immediately available where and when needed. The first basic action to enable this is to associate rich metadata to it. Metadata is the key to maximizing the value of your content. Organizations such as NASA and the United Nations leverage their media asset management (MAM) platform to manage their ever-growing metadata needs. Look for a platform that enables flexible, scalable, and secure data models to help meet your current needs while laying an agile foundation for future metadata enrichment challenges. The Power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) One of the fastest growing technology trends to enrich the metadata of your content is through AI. Whether it be speech-to-text, facial recognition or other cognitive services, AI can help your organization automate much of your metadata logging and then offer contextual content suggestions, providing greater content visibility and usage across your entire organization. Building a core framework for AI as part of your MAM strategy will help future-proof your underlying data model for years to come. Collaborative Tools and Workflows Breaking down silos to improve efficiency is a critical objective of many organizations, particulary, government agencies and institutions. Leading MAM platforms help break down those silos by enabling agile, connected workflows that increase productivity for digital content operations. Collaboration needs to span across the entire workflow (from planning through scripting, production all the way to broadcast and distribution) with a unified content catalogue, shared media bins and powerful chat features. Multiplatform Distribution Given the high number of outlets to feed and the speed at which content should be produced and delivered, managing the distribution of content is a complex exercise. Media organizations such as Voice of America need to push their content all around the globe and engage audiences on multiple platforms. Most advanced MAM platforms, such as Dalet Galaxy five, provide these organizations a level of transparency for their media management, allowing users to quickly access their content and distribute it wherever they need in whatever shape they need. Ensure Scalability With content acquisition increasing, building your operation on a proven, scalable architecture to manage volume is critical. State-of-the-art media operations require unparalleled transparency of content between storage tiers. With a cloud-ready architecture, you are also able to take full advantage of scalability mechanisms to make significant savings on your infrastructure. MAM based on a distributed architecture can be adapted to the level of functionality your organization requires as your needs evolve. ITAM Security Poor asset control and management can lead to weakened content security. As much as possible, organizations need to seek to control their assets from a single platform. The better control and visibility your organization has over its assets the more it reduces the risks posed by outside threats. Managing disparate storage units, preventing unauthorized access to content, and auditing every user and system action on every piece of content should be centralized and made simple. The Dalet Galaxy five platform can be deployed in a FedRAMP-compliant service environment, and is ISO 27001:2013 certified. With Active Directory (AD) integration, you benefit from a centralized management of users and rights. In addition to tightly integrated user authentication, system auditing provides a log of actions performed by users. Gain Workflow Efficiencies Not all MAM solutions are created equal and not all natively integrate orchestration capabilities, which are crucial for automating content transactions that can otherwise bog down the operation. Dalet’s workflow orchestration engine allows you to streamline your organization’s media lifecycle processes for quicker delivery of your content. The engine orchestrates many human tasks and automates background processes that fast-track the end-to-end content preparation and distribution workflow. Library Management & Archiving From small to large-scale organizations, a well managed, accessible and connected archive is an essential and valuable part of any content operation. Realizing this importance, Dalet offers end-to-end Archive solutions to optimize your workflow and to maximize your assets. Dalet’s highly flexible Archive solutions manage all types of multimedia content, including video, audio, texts, documents and more. Making media easily accessible and findable from any location through a web, mobile client or third-party system is key to your workflow success! Actionable Business Intelligence Once your organization has a rich set of data complementing your assets, it’s critical to leverage the data to help optimize your operations as well as drive actionable insights. By compiling relevant analytics, organizations can replicate editorial success based on reports of content usage, better understand your organization’s key impacts based on analytics of consumption, better use talent based on information about productivity, and enhance technical infrastructure based on technical information gathered. The Dalet Report Center gives government organizations what today’s business demands: a business analytics solution that is truly enterprise-ready.

Bringing broadcast archives to life!
"AI is not just about cataloging and preservation, it’s about connecting your content to opportunity.” Jean Gabriel Minel, Head of Research and Development for the French National Audiovisual Institute (INA) This quote sums up particularly well the key theme at the FIAT-IFTA World Conference held last month in Venice, Italy, and hosted by the RAI at the Palazzo Labia, a 17th century palace. Renowned for its exchange of ideas and best practices in archival science, the international symposium provided attendees the opportunity to discover innovative, AI-powered content management and archiving use cases and learn more about the latest technology trends from leading broadcasters, media organizations, and technology companies. As a Gold Sponsor participant of the FIAT-IFTA World Conference, I was honoured to attend and represent Dalet. I had a chance to speak with attendees and show them how advanced content management, workflow orchestration, and best of breed AI services can better preserve, enrich, share, and monetize their archival content. With the combination of virtually limitless cloud storage and computing power, a new era is upon us. Many of the attendees I met were archivists who hold degrees in library studies and have advanced knowledge of content lifecycle and asset management systems. During the conference, these tech-savvy content gatekeepers presented on how they are pioneering the use of AI to further enrich archived content in order to increase accessibility and generate new business opportunities. Many demonstrated that with automatic content discovery capabilities, media organizations can better monetize archival content and leverage their assets to gain a competitive edge over new entrants on their markets. Applying AI to Media Workflows - The Need for a Plan I found that most of those presenting about AI at the conference were trying to solve a similar issue: surface content easily to users with limited human intervention in logging the content. I can relate to this, as over the past 12 years working for Dalet, I have taught many of our customers about the importance of properly tagging content. With our latest generation toolset I now educate users on how to discover content that they need for their creations; should it be for creating promos, documentaries, news packages or highlights for sports. I was honoured to present “The Dalet Living Archive: Utilizing AI in Archive Workflows” and demonstrate how Dalet solutions help media organizations streamline their workflows, reduce costs, and empower content creators with new tools to research, craft, deliver and promote their quality content to audiences on all platforms for consumption. In the presentation, I demonstrated how Dalet Media Cortex automatically enriches content with AI services for: facial recognition speech to text entity detection content moderation object recognition OCR detection. I showed that enrichment of the content triggers Dalet workflow orchestration to auto-create promos or highlights, and turn the AI-generated speech-to-text data into subtitles. I also showed that while a journalist types a story, Dalet Content Discovery detects entities such as people, places, and organizations as well as concepts, and then recommends content from the library with similar tags. A Winning Example - Bundesliga Fußball Archives Sportcast, a subsidiary of DFL (Deutsche Fußball Liga), which oversees the largest digital football archive in the world, manages the entire value chain from stadium to the world with the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform. Sportcast has built a Media Portal on top of their Dalet system to connect and monetize all of the Bundesliga assets, leveraging the latest Dalet Orchestration technology to automate media processes and deliver more efficiently their partners. With a grueling production schedule of 617 games each year, Sportcast is piloting AI-based indexing to optimize logging workflows and further enrich the massive amount of incoming content. <iframe width="100%" height="400" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6Y2wKPtTYAQ" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> With great powers come great opportunities... In addition to the Sportcast case study, there were other very interesting use cases presented at the conference, including the development of Visual Searches at the RAI, Ontology detection at RTVE, and facial/organization detection at RTS. The BBC demonstrated a new system that discovers content based on historical, cultural and other topical references linked to that particular day and publishes it to social media. They demonstrated how the system retrieved a funny clip from the 1950s for International Egg day. The asset would have never been found with a conventional search. The BBC’s AI system found it and within minutes automatically published it to Twitter. At the FIAT-IFTA World Conference, just a few months after they posted the Egg video, it had received 15 million views, further demonstrating how you can give life to old content. With AI giving us so much data about an asset - thousands of tags for less than a minute of video for instance - a concern was brought up at the conference: would it become too difficult to choose content that is actually relevant? The short answer, with the development of new tools utilizing faceted search capabilities, content discovery, workflow orchestration and auto-creation of content, the user decides what is important, giving viewers so many possible angles to the same story. Prestigious awards for innovative projects Held at the Scuola Grande San Giovanni, the FIAT-IFTA Gala Awards Ceremony recognized a number of Dalet customers including Danish Radio, SBS and RAI. Our congratulations to them and their teams on the accolades, and sincere gratitude for contributing to the discussions and innovation in the area of archives! 2018 ARCHIVE ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS We also would like to thank FIAT-IFTA and the RAI for organizing such an amazing event and look forward to next year's conference in Croatia.

Telefe Upgrades to Dalet Galaxy five
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that leading free-to-air Argentine network Telefe is to drive an expansive multiplatform workflow with the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform. The massive upgrade encompasses program preparation, production, output, and archive and will principally improve Telefe’s automation and social media workflow. Owned and operated by Viacom International Media Networks since 2016, Televisión Federal (known as Telefe) reaches 95% of all households in Argentina, a country of 43 million. Headquartered in Buenos Aires, it produces more than 3,000 hours of Spanish language video content each year distributed across eight regional channels, as well as a significant and growing multi-platform presence and, distributed globally over pay TV channel Telefe Internacional. Telefe also manages a library of over 33,000 hours of content. Dalet has facilitated Telefe’s broadcast, post, and archive workflows since 2014. The comprehensive installation gives Telefe producers, editors, assistant editors, and operators direct access to archives and workflow tools. “We need to serve our audience by reaching them wherever they are and that means a huge expansion in our social media distribution,” explained Santiago Matias Guimerans Soto, vice president of technology and operations at Telefe. “Having successfully based our media operations on Dalet for many years it was natural for us to upgrade to Dalet Galaxy five to take advantage in particular of the workflow engine. This will give us greater agility and speed in developing new workflows to accommodate the creation and publication of content to social media and future platforms. Dalet is a solution that Telefe can continue to grow with over time. It helps us create new forms of revenue and reduces our time to market.” Telefe plans to design and build an integrated media supply chain that encompasses ingest, transcoding and distribution using the Dalet Galaxy five workflow designer tool. The Dalet AmberFin media processing platform seamlessly integrates with Dalet Galaxy Five and drives Telefe’s QC workflows. Production and publishing of all program content to applications such as Mi Telefe (My Telefe) and Telefe Noticias (Telefe News) as well as YouTube, Facebook and other classic social media platforms will be much more efficient in Dalet Galaxy five. “Telefe already represents one of Dalet’s largest installations in South America and our partnership is further strengthening with this next technology leap,” explains Julien Decaix, general manager Dalet Americas. “It is Dalet’s proven ability to connect production, post-production, and archives combined with the ease of content publishing to outlets like YouTube and emerging consumer platforms that first attracted Telefe. The flexibility of Dalet Galaxy five further allows them to smoothly integrate and manage the different video formats used by Viacom together with those of Telefe. The initial Dalet investment continues to give them complete interoperability five years later while enabling them to orchestrate new workflows introduced by outside operations with ease. This is a tremendous return on investment.” About Dalet Digital Media Systems Dalet solutions and services enable media organisations to create, manage and distribute content faster and more efficiently, fully maximising the value of assets.

IBC2018: Key Takeaways from Dalet
I’ve been thinking and reflecting on how to properly characterize this year’s show and the one word that kept surfacing to the top of my mind is audience. While IBC stayed true to its B2B roots, this year’s edition finally put the audience at the very center of every conversation, workflow and applied technology demonstration that you could possibly find across the RAI convention center. Acknowledging the deep market shifts, this year’s show revolved around audiences’ insatiable craving for fresh content and more personalised, immersive experiences on the devices and channels of their choice. For broadcasters and media organizations, it highlighted one thing: the need for greater agility, faster adaptation and collaborative innovation. Not only do media professionals need to think “out of the box” about linear broadcast and traditional consumption formats and devices, but they need to think tactically on how to build meaningful, complementary content experiences. The Efficient Media Factory Multiplatform Production, Versioning and Automated Distribution This is a good segue to talk about how our agile Dalet Galaxy five platform is enabling broadcasters and media organizations to meet their audiences’ expectations and build strong, open foundation for future requirements. A key concern today is how to address the many outlets, program categories and flavors of a particular program simultaneously. Our Director of Product Strategy Kevin Savina explains in a Rapid TV News interview at IBC the complexities of delivering hyper-curated content to multiple platforms and how broadcasters and media organizations need to embrace the new way of thinking and working when it comes to building and distributing their content. <iframe width="100%" height="400" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/UbX-BvEaySc" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> Agile platforms like Dalet Galaxy five drive workflows with a component-based approach, enabling industrialization of key industry standards like IMF and creating real business benefits and opportunities for international content distribution. More than a technical uplift, component-based workflows really allow an operation to change the value model and ultimately change the way the media business engages its viewers and customers who want to purchase their programs with hyper-targeted content delivered to any platform, any country en mass. Let’s take a real-life example with the leading European media brand Euronews. A finalist of the prestigious IBC Innovation Awards alongside Dalet, Euronews piloted a strategic transformation to put content customization at the heart of its operations. Tapping fully into the agility of the Dalet Galaxy platform and component-based workflows, Euronews, in essence, reinvented its broadcast journalism, taking its “one-size-fits-all” approach to news, which was one video with 11 voice-overs, into 12 distinct localized channels. They increased digital content output by 20% and television content by 100% with the same staff and headcount. Johann Zemmour, Dalet General Manager, EMEA & APAC; Francois Schmitt, Euronews COO; Yannick Agaësse, Dalet Sales & Business Development Manager Euronews achieved its vision and became the world’s first truly ‘Glocal’ news channel, providing audiences important global headlines with perspectives and viewpoints relevant to their regions, cultures and communities. This transformation also allowed Euronews to become the perfect media partner for advertisers looking to run impactful international advertising campaigns with the ability to adapt their message to the characteristics of local markets. Another great example of customer success is Sportcast, a subsidiary of DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga. Sportcast operates the largest digital football archive in the world. Producing the 617 yearly matches of the German Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 for DFL, Sportcast manages the entire content value chain from the stadium to the world with the Dalet Galaxy platform. You can hear from them directly the importance of an agile platform in managing, enriching and delivering content: <iframe width="100%" height="400" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6Y2wKPtTYAQ" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> Live Show Production & Complementary Content Experiences With the launch of Dalet OnePlay at IBC, we had the chance to talk with many attendees about the importance of complementary content experience around live shows. I am happy to report here that our new solution received a very warm welcome from both the Dalet stand visitors and the press, nabbing the TVBEurope Best of Show Award for its innovation and outstanding product development. In the conversations we had, most media operations need a way to better control content and engage their audiences during live playout. Not everyone can afford to run every production device manually to get that granular control. It’s simply too costly and too cumbersome. Dalet OnePlay controls all core production device types, including video switchers and servers, cameras, audio mixing consoles, graphics, lighting, routers and more. In addition, it orchestrates multimedia content distribution, including social media delivery, thanks to the native connection with the Dalet Galaxy five orchestration layer. You can read more about Dalet OnePlay capabilities in the interview with Dalet OnePlay product line manager Raul Alba. Raul Alba, Dalet Product Line Manager for Studio Production, Broadcast Graphics, and I/O Solutions Making Media Businesses Smarter. The AI Revolution! The notions of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) may sometimes remain a bit difficult to grasp. Well, we have a suggestion: get the benefits of AI, not the complexity! At IBC2018, we revealed the first version of Dalet Media Cortex, a cloud service that enables media organizations to connect and orchestrate various types of AI technologies everywhere they add value to operations & business. A plug-and-play service, the first release of Dalet Media Cortex enables media organizations to consume cognitive services such as celebrity identification, label, brand and scene detection, sentiment analysis, and visual content moderation, on demand in a pay-as-you-go model. The AI-generated data is then displayed at various levels of the Dalet Galaxy five application, in a set of new intuitive UIs, to provide contextual, actionable insights and recommendations to the users. The full launch of Dalet Media Cortex will be in Q1 2019 and you can learn more about our AI as well as social media plans in the What Caught My Eye’s Business Transformation session - see video below, starting at 41:20 and until 46:20 - featuring Dalet VP of Marketing Arnaud Elnecave: Connecting a Globally Distributed Workforce Also making its debut at IBC2018, the new Dalet OneCut remote editing workflow was demonstrated on the stand by product line manager Golan Tsarfaty. The new remote editing capabilities give journalists out in the field a way to upload materials easily as well as develop stories remotely using content from the central newsroom and archives. They can submit drafts or finalize their piece from anywhere. You can learn more about this remarkable workflow in this in-depth interview with Golan. This feature is the perfect illustration of decades of R&D and innovation in collaborative media workflows. Collaboration is a core concept of the Dalet Galaxy platform and spans across the entire workflow: from planning through scripting, production all the way through broadcast and distribution. All of these activities are served by a single, unified content catalogue and accessible from multiple devices. Shared media bins make the life of teams easier than ever, chat rooms allow users to open up projects quickly, using ad-hoc groups to exchange media, scripts and ideas. Last but not least, collaborative script editing in editorial workflows is a game-changing feature! Thank You, Dalet Community! I could not conclude this blog article without praising the amazing Dalet community! Dalet Pulse was once again a unique demonstration of how powerful, diverse and vibrant our community is today. On behalf of the entire Dalet Team, thank you to everyone for attending and engaging in so many discussions around the latest technology and business trends, as well as sharing best practices and use cases. Also a big thank you to our event sponsors and key partners Adobe, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Quantum and Dell EMC. See you soon... Any questions? Did you miss us at the show? Let’s talk or meet at our next event!

Dalet Galaxy five Brings AI, Social Media and Hybrid Workflows to BroadcastAsia2018
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced that it will showcase its award-winning Dalet Galaxy five media asset management and workflow orchestration platform for the first time at the BroadcastAsia2018 show, held in Singapore from June 26-28, on stand 4R4-06. “Dalet customers are looking for efficient ways to produce new forms of content, generated with efficient, AI-powered multiplatform productions and designed for cross-channel, complementary experiences that drive better engagement,” comments César Camacho, general manager, Dalet Asia Pacific. “At BroadcastAsia2018, Dalet will showcase how its evolutive Dalet Galaxy five platform is augmenting media operations with smart, orchestrated workflows, and enabling forward-thinking business models.” Dalet Galaxy five delivers three key enhancements; the first enables broadcasters and media organizations to leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI) across the workflow, the second leverages hybrid infrastructures with on-premises and Cloud deployments, the third puts social media at the core of the operations. BroadcastAsia2018 attendees can book a private demonstration or workflow consultation with a Dalet expert to learn more about the following Dalet Galaxy five feature highlights: Artificial Intelligence Framework Powered by Dalet Media Cortex, the new Dalet Galaxy five AI framework connects, orchestrates and fine-tunes purpose-driven combinations of AI models, enabling media organizations to build intelligent workflows that assist users with recommendations, facilitate collaboration with smart matching, and use predictive analytics for better provisioning and automated decision-making. Dalet Content Discovery, the first application to leverage this new AI framework, uses data generated by cognitive services, combined with existing metadata, to build smart content recommendations for editorial and creative teams. Learn more Social Media Framework The Dalet Social Media framework enables newsrooms to treat social media as an integrated part of their overall news operation. Journalists can harvest, analyze, produce and deliver fast-paced news on social media platforms alongside traditional outlets. The story-centric workflow offers familiar indicators such as number of views, likes, shares, as well as audience comments and threads. Visual engagement data lets journalists know how their posts are performing with their audience and discover new angles audiences are expecting. With analytical tools and dynamic content at their fingertips, journalists can quickly evolve posts into deeper stories or segue into a new angle. New capabilities include social media popularity indicators, Twitter harvester, scheduling and approval of social posts, expanded emoji library, contextual graphics and subtitles.

Component-Based Workflows Power Multiplatform Productions Dalet Galaxy five disintermediates the media supply chain, allowing users to produce, manage and distribute content at the component level, a much more efficient and flexible way to facilitate complex and mass content volume workflows such as multiplatform news production and international programs preparation, localization and versioning. The model is particularly adapted to new families of standards such as the Interoperable Mastering Format or IMF. Dalet Galaxy five features a comprehensive set of tools within Dalet Webspace to manage end-to-end component-based IMF workflows from acquisition to production, versioning, packaging and distribution. This includes receiving IMF packages, referencing IMF assets in a central repository, leveraging IMF metadata, both technical and editorial, to search on all assets and data; generating proxies for preview of track files and CPLs in Dalet WebSpace; visualizing assets relationships (track files and CPLs, CPLs and OPLs), automating the creation of new versions, connecting CPLs using EIDR (Entertainment Identifier Registry) and ISAN (International Standard Audiovisual Number) ids. Learn more Enhanced Collaboration Beyond media management, Dalet Galaxy five is a full communication and collaboration platform for connected teams. New collaboration enhancements include Media Bins that provide the ultimate in media sharing flexibility; Dalet On-the-Go brings programs management tools to your phone and tablet; the updated Dalet Chat capabilities allow users to work by thread and embed assets such as graphics, audio and video files to provide a more comprehensive communication stream.

Enhanced Show Automation Expanding production control automation capabilities, Dalet Galaxy five offers a new version of Dalet On-Air, featuring new automation events macros for control of studio devices such as lighting, audio and camera position but also deep integration of these automation events with the full orchestration layer of the platform. Business Intelligence The new version of the Dalet Report Center features new set of data extractions and data model that supports analysis and reporting on a new set of business indicators. At BroadcastAsia2018, Dalet will illustrate this with some first business reports focused on a typical news operation and its contents.
