BBC Wales Puts Dalet At The Core Of New Broadcast

Dalet announced that BBC Wales has selected the enterprise Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform to facilitate all workflows and asset management requirements at its new state-of-the-art media facility located in Cardiff, Wales.

Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced that BBC Wales has selected the enterprise Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform to facilitate all workflows and asset management requirements at its new state-of-the-art media facility located in Cardiff, Wales. Once deployed, Dalet Galaxy will offer a centralized content repository and provide tools to orchestrate workflows and media processes across production, news, studios and delivery departments. The massive installation design and multi-year deployment will be managed by Dalet Professional Services, which will ensure customer success in the transformation journey towards agility and maximize return on investment (ROI).
“BBC Wales is pleased to be working with Dalet to provide an asset management system for our new home in Central Square, Cardiff.  Dalet was chosen after a very competitive process, and will provide an important part of the technology solution at Central Square within a state of the art broadcast centre.  We are looking forward to the successful delivery of the project,” comments Gareth Powell, chief operating officer, BBC Wales.  
As the core media hub, Dalet Galaxy will be deployed as the cornerstone of the new digital facility. All systems and sub-systems deployed in future phases will connect to this hub. The state-of-the-art, BPMN-compliant Dalet Workflow Engine will enable the BBC to orchestrate a combination of user tasks and media services ranging from ingest, transcoding and QC, to logging, editing, media packaging and distribution. A simple-to-use workflow designer interface allows users to model business processes, picking from a palette of stencils operations such as user tasks and notifications, media and metadata services, gateways, timeout and error management, and much more.
 
The comprehensive and open Dalet Galaxy API will allow the BBC to tightly connect storage and infrastructure technologies, media services and post-production applications, and traffic and business platforms, orchestrating a fluid workflow that tracks assets and associated metadata across the media enterprise.
“We have been working with the BBC on a multitude of projects for more than fifteen years," comments Adrian Smith, regional manager, Dalet UK. “Dalet Galaxy’s flexible architecture provides a future-proof framework on which the BBC can evolve to meet new requirements and production needs that arise over coming months and even years. The Dalet Professional Services team’s experience in managing such enterprise rollouts will help them navigate the juggernaut of this multi-year, large-scale deployment.”
In addition to Dalet Galaxy, Dalet will be supplying a new Dalet HTML application for simplified management of camera card ingests and its Dalet Brio video server. Supporting both SDI and IP, the versatile, high-density Dalet Brio ingest and playout platform adheres to the SMPTE 2110 standards, allowing broadcasters to step into the future of IP while retaining the security of SDI.

Introducing Dalet StoreFront: A Frictionless and Secure Way for Media Organizations to Showcase Their Content to Their Clients
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced Dalet StoreFront, a new SaaS-based solution that enables Dalet customers to create a content marketplace that offers a familiar shopping experience for their B2B clients, partners and affiliates. Dalet StoreFront manages multi-user access to Dalet MAM stored content with advanced search tools to quickly locate assets, filtered to only show relevant materials to a qualified client. Underpinned by Dalet MAM orchestration engine for content preparation and delivery, Dalet StoreFront creates an optimal content shopping experience that maximizes inventory exposure, repurposing and retail opportunities, bringing value to the overall media operation and business. This service will benefit just about every Dalet customer from news networks sharing assets across affiliates to sports leagues servicing licensees. “As audiences grow at a global scale, so does the need for more content. Maximizing exposure and facilitating discoverability of our customers’ new or untapped materials is more important than ever before,” states Luc Comeau, Market Director for MAM and Supply Chain at Dalet.“However, with this opportunity for increased content ROI comes additional supply chain complexities. Dalet StoreFront enables clients to tap into a rich Dalet MAM inventory with greater efficiency and speed, resurfacing and monetizing otherwise dormant archives, all within the familiar shopping experience that today’s digital shoppers come to expect.” The Dalet StoreFront shopping experience is easily actionable, discoverable through an intuitive browsing and online shopping model, and eliminates the need for back and forth email exchanges. Comeau explains,“Today many media operations rely heavily on unconnected processes to fulfill partners’ and licensees’ requests. Requests for content via email and disparate file delivery services are manually intensive and leave far too many opportunities to repurpose and resell content on the table,” states Comeau. “Dalet StoreFront identifies the ‘shopper’ and presents all of the relevant content options they can choose from, ensuring maximum catalog exposure while keeping content rights intact.” With Dalet StoreFront, licensing content is easier than ever. Content owners can easily identify and tag content rights for their community of licensees as well as establish rights to visitors and potential licensees. Dalet StoreFront secures your rich content inventory by keeping all the source content under the control and management of Dalet MAM. Only after an order has passed through all checks, automated by Dalet Orchestration, can the fulfillment happen, thus creating a segregated browse/shopping experience from the source catalog.

Dalet Inks Deal to Build World's Most Advanced Multi-platform Newsroom with Leading North American Broadcaster
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, has signed a landmark deal with a prominent North American broadcaster to build its next-generation, borderless multi-platform newsroom on Dalet Galaxy five. The broadcaster’s expansive operation is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service that includes four distinct traditional and digital news entities dedicated to delivering breaking news to more than 90 million homes. The digital transformation will leverage advanced Cloud and AI technologies and move all production and distribution operations to the cohesive Dalet Galaxy five platform, a unified Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial environment. Frederic Roux, vice president of sales, Americas, Dalet, comments on the multi-workflow advantages Dalet Galaxy five offers: “This particular news network is on air 24/7 and what they must deliver is far more diverse than straightforward news shows. They need to produce studio news programs and documentary-style shows, which are much closer to long-form programming workflows and often feature multi-camera productions. In addition, a new kind of storytelling is required when producing for OTT and digital, which adds complexity to the production chain.” Roux continues, “Dalet Galaxy five is able to facilitate standard news, long-form programming and digital workflows simultaneously. The transition to the platform brings immense efficiency to the operation with limitless options to implement future workflows and iterate quickly with new, digital-first initiatives. The consolidation of systems required to drive these disparate workflows will also help optimize the total cost of ownership for the broadcaster. In this era of fast-changing news consumption behavior, our customers need an agile platform that can adapt quickly to their new business reality. This agility is inherent to the Dalet Galaxy five hybrid architecture.” Based on a modern, video over IP infrastructure that uses the SMPTE 2110 standard, Dalet Galaxy five platform leverages the elasticity of the Cloud and offers federated production capabilities enabling the news network to effectively scale remote bureaus, field resources, and workflows at will. Cognitive services integrated with Dalet Galaxy five will accelerate the metadata enrichment of content archives making news assets easier to discover and readily available for creating deeper news stories across all platforms. Thanks to the hybrid architecture leveraging AWS, Dalet Galaxy five will provide native disaster recovery capability by offloading on-premise capacity to the Cloud when needed and processing scalability. “Today’s audiences crave more detailed news information on the viewing platform of their choice, especially for major sporting and political events,” adds Roux. “Broadcasters need a solution that enables them to deliver that deeper coverage whenever and wherever these events take place and create a content journey that engages audiences across all platforms. Dalet Galaxy five industry-leading remote access and editing provides a seamless news gathering and reporting experience enabling journalists to prepare robust multimedia stories whether they are in the newsroom or in the field on assignment.” Dalet Galaxy five will underpin the entire multi-platform production and delivery workflow, integrating key broadcast systems and propelling game-changing field and bureau workflows with a significantly improved remote editing user experience. Dalet Galaxy five’s orchestration capabilities will facilitate metadata-driven operations that automate complex media processes, distribute tasks and streamline workflows, simplifying the technical hurdles of media handling while simultaneously providing staff greater control over assets and monitoring capacities.

The diverse program content contains breaking local and national news, world financial and business news, and full coverage of football, rugby, tennis, boxing and more. “NextRadioTV has an ambitious roadmap in terms of both new content production and new channels, like BFM Lyon,” comments Antoine Robelin, Broadcast CTO, NextRadioTV. “Underpinning the entire operation with an agile platform like Dalet Galaxy enables us to centralize all of our media operations and optimize productions. More than 1,000 journalists and editors are able to work with the Dalet Galaxy system. They work collaboratively and share their content across all NextRadioTV brands. This gives us tremendous flexibility with regards to feeding channels and distribution outlets, including our new BFM Lyon channel.” NextRadioTV’s digital transformation with Dalet has enabled the group to launch new initiatives like the ultra-targeted regional station BFM Lyon quickly, while keeping in line with the brand’s content strategy across multiple locations. With a reputation for always being the first to broadcast breaking news, the Dalet tools help NextRadioTV verify, editorialize and broadcast content before any other media outlet. “Launching BFM Lyon, the second regional channel after BFM Paris under Altice France, marks a major step in our network expansion strategy. Thanks to the advanced collaboration framework and powerful connectivity, Dalet Galaxy has helped broaden our reach while accelerating a digital transformation that allows us to continue to scale with ease,” adds Antoine Robelin. A single Dalet Galaxy MAM, orchestration and editorial platform powers NextRadioTV's massive multi-channel, multi-format and multi-output programming, from news and sports to long-form and radio programs, allowing individual teams to manage collaboratively everything from content ingest, editing, graphics and playout, to multi-platform distribution and archives. Johann Zemmour, General Manager EMEA-APAC, Dalet comments, “The agility of Dalet Galaxy is very important for NextRadioTV’s product-oriented production approach, in which they use a studio to produce a show and decide later where and when that program content will appear on TV, radio and digital. Dalet Galaxy allows them to use their resources independently of their channels, enabling NextRadioTV to leverage a wide range of content for new channels as well as manage distribution across their many platforms in an incredibly efficient manner.” Dalet systems have supported BFMTV programming throughout their entire history, from a small newsroom of 50 people to what is today several hundreds of simultaneous users and advanced workflows covering all production and playout operations.

ABS-CBN Expands News Workflow Capability with Dalet
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that Philippines media group ABS-CBN Corporation has deployed Dalet Unified News Operations powered by the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial platform, at its regional Cebu City station. The turnkey news solution deployed by Dalet enables the broadcaster to break news faster and offers the agility to expand seamlessly to support multi-site workflows. ABS-CBN Corporation, headquartered in Quezon City, is the Philippines' largest entertainment and media conglomerate by revenue, assets, and number of employees. The group owns and operates the ABS-CBN television network which includes the flagship national channel ABS-CBN as well as regional radio networks. An existing Dalet customer, the ABS-CBN group invested in Dalet in 2008 to manage the facility-wide media asset management and archiving workflow which resulted in the digitization of 21-years’ worth of material. The investment also enabled ABS-CBN to add new media channels for web and mobile TV. The new Dalet deployment upgrades the broadcaster’s Cebu news production capabilities and lays the foundation for further strategic enhancements. “Previously, we had no studio automation at our Cebu City station and were laying programs to tape for playout with no ability to save news programs. We needed to move to a solution that would automate our workflows, better support our social channels and enable future expansion,” explains Leilani Alba, Station Head for ABS-CBN Cebu. “Backed by 10 years’ of trust and collaboration with Dalet we knew we could rely on their proven technology and professional services for this important project. With Dalet, we have transformed and simplified our operations by moving to a single solution that manages the end-to-end production and playout of news. We are already seeing the value of our assets increase by being able to track and gather metadata at all points across the news story development.” The Dalet Unified News Operations solution is powered by the market-leading Dalet Galaxy five platform. The built-in Dalet NRCS functionality includes agency wire acquisition, collaborative planning, script editing, notifications and approval processes, rundown and graphics management with full timing control, and many other features. Designed for journalists, the embedded Dalet OneCut multimedia editor enables easy and fast news editing at every desktop. The Dalet AmberFin media processing farm transcodes any incoming content into the mezzanine format, making it immediately available for use across the station. Dalet Brio video servers deliver rock-solid performance and high-density ingest and playout. “Designed as a fully packaged, end-to-end, newsroom solution, Dalet Unified News Operations offers tremendous value to ABS-CBN. They can now break news faster thanks to a streamlined, fully integrated and automated news workflow. In addition, ABS-CBN can amplify their social media and digital output to meet the needs of new audiences,” says Cesar Comacho, general manager, Dalet Asia Pacific. “ABS-CBN has a platform they can grow with and realize future ambitions, including connection to its main hub and regional radio networks. Since the system fully supports HD from ingest to playout, the infrastructure is ready for them to transition.” Comacho concludes, “The ease of deployment and the excellent working relationship we have is reflected in the fact that we were able to get the Cebu newsroom up running in just two months.” Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that Philippines media group ABS-CBN Corporation has deployed Dalet Unified News Operations powered by the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial platform, at its regional Cebu City station.

Al Rayyan TV Builds Its Broadcast Future on Dalet
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that the Al Rayyan TV Channel has centralized all of its media operations on the Dalet Galaxy five media platform. A subsidiary of the Al Rayyan Media and Marketing Company, Al Rayyan TV is known for its Qatari cultural programming, offering a range of in-house and locally produced entertainment, magazines and news-oriented shows. The enterprise-wide revamp of the technical infrastructure is part of the broadcaster’s move to its new state-of-the-art broadcast facility located in Souq Waqif, Doha. With Dalet Galaxy five underpinning the operation, the Al Rayyan TV team can seamlessly connect each stage of the workflow, managing content from the moment it arrives at the facility onto the production of programs to distribution over satellite, digital and social media channels from one platform. The fluid Dalet Galaxy five-driven workflow brings significant productivity gains to all aspects of the media operation, improving not only program time to air, but the overall quality of program packages with more time dedicated to content creation. Mohamad Naim Al Said, Engineering Department Director, Al Rayyan Mohamad Naim Al Said, Engineering Department Director, Al Rayyan, explains, “The business goal driving this upgrade is to meet the needs and expectations of the Qatari viewers and expatriates for a more robust program offering. Since we are a tapeless environment and to allow our teams to produce and share content internally much more efficiently, accelerating our production schedules while dedicating more time to crafting high-quality packages, we decided to go with Dalet Galaxy five as a collaborative software that centralizes our valuable assets under one single system. The underlying media asset management and workflow orchestration functionality allows us to exchange content seamlessly from one department to another, setting the stage for expanding our program production and delivery options. Two main sections of Al Rayyan Engineering Department such as MCR, Ingest, and Broadcast IT Teams which are being headed by Ghandi Elghotmi and Riyaz Mirza respectively, planned, initiated and completed the work tirelessly with SMC and Dalet during the launching of Dalet MAM System on the migration project.” The full implementation of Dalet Galaxy five allows Al Rayyan to build an end-to-end digital content supply chain that connects and unifies all operations and processes from ingest to post-production, to distribution over satellite and social media channels, to archives. Key components include a centralized content catalogue (MAM), search and media management; seamless collaboration between all users, including editors on Adobe Premiere Pro CC through Dalet Xtend; centralized ingest management through Dalet Brio video server, and Dalet AmberFin scalable transcoding. Production and management teams across the operations can easily access the archives, having more options for program content thanks to seamless integration through the Dalet API. Dalet Professional Services and local business partner Salam Media Cast collaborate with Al Rayyan Team through the entire process from architecting the new technical system, designing the new production and programming workflows, to implementing the solution, training the various user groups and support. Dalet’s general manager of EMEA and APAC, Johann Zemmour, comments, “Dalet Galaxy five gives Al Rayyan a full-fledged content production, management and distribution platform that eliminates the legacy siloed organisation. It is a new agile, foundation backed by a team of experts that can help them make the leap forward. They can now leverage emerging technologies such as AI, adapt faster and create new efficiencies that will allow them to expand their programming beyond the expectations of their audience.” For more information on Dalet Galaxy five, please visit www.dalet.com/galaxy-five or visit Dalet at CABSAT 2019 in Hall 3 on stand G3-31.

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.
