Dalet AmberFin Release Adds Dolby Vision and Socionext Acceleration
Re-imagined Dalet AmberFin engine enables exceptional mastering and distribution workflows for production, post-production, and streaming.

Exceptional mastering and distribution workflows

The first software-based transcoding asset management system to include Dolby Vision® technologies, a leading HDR technology for media professionals, studios and streaming service providers

Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced that the latest release of the Dalet AmberFin media processing platform is the first software-based transcoding asset management system to include Dolby Vision® technologies, a leading HDR technology for media professionals, studios and streaming service providers. In addition to Dolby Vision and a raft of new software-only features, Dalet AmberFin can also be enhanced with hardware acceleration tools such as the M820L HEVC encoder plugin card from SoC (System On a Chip) specialist Socionext.

Steve Higgins, Product Manager, Dalet AmberFin, states, “The latest release of the Dalet AmberFin media processing engine marks a new era for this renowned high-quality content processor. Whether you process on-premises, in the cloud or with a mix of both; the efficiency of the processor coupled with high throughput and exceptional audio-visual quality are key for delivering your content in a timely and cost-conscious fashion.”

Unique in its class, Dalet AmberFin media processing capabilities enable automated Dolby Vision mastering and distribution workflows that generate outputs from IMF, through broadcast, cable and satellite packages to OTT HLS and DASH bundles. The integrated BPMN-compliant workflow engine and API let administrators configure user interfaces, assign tasks for operators, and push through ad-hoc QC processes; creating workflows that are just right for their facility.

Dalet AmberFin's file outputs can vary in packaging sophistication from simple MP4s through to complex IMF packages that are automatically synthesized from collections of input files and automation instructions. Dalet active participation in SMPTE’s IMF plugfests gives confidence that all its IMF processes are interoperable at the very highest level and are a key component of the IMF mastering and distribution revolution sweeping the industry. 

Jean-Christophe Coin, CEO from Leading French Post-House VDM says of the platform, "By integrating Dalet AmberFin with our Dalet Galaxy MAM platform we have managed to build the Content Factory that we always dreamed of. Work orders for original and versioned content flow quickly and efficiently through our facility with human operators lending creative skills where required and automation fulfilling all other processes". On the complexity of today's workflows, he added, "There are more and more variations in the complexity of a modern title. When it was just SD or HD life was simple. Today we track different HDR variants and multiple languages, compliance and re-versioned variants for the large number of platforms that a single title might appear on." 

Higgins concludes, “Whether your outputs are high bitrate JPEG2000 and ProRes or low bitrate H.264 and HEVC, the platform offers advanced features like outstanding software-only, cloud-friendly frame rate conversion and sophisticated interlace handling that will ensure your content is created quickly and with quality that viewers will love regardless of their delivery bandwidth.”

Dalet AmberFin version 11.8.2.0 is now available to all existing customers on a support contract. For more details, go to https://www.dalet.com/platforms/dalet-amberfin

New Dalet Cube NG Powers Broadcast Graphics Workflows for Teleticino and IB3
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today that Teleticino and IB3 are revamping their broadcast graphics capabilities with the new Dalet CubeNG solution powered by the Brainstorm real-time graphics engine. An Italian-language television channel based in Switzerland, Teleticino provides news and entertainment programming for the Ticino canton region. IB3, public radio and television channel of the Balearic Islands in Spain, caters to local viewers’ traditional broadcast and digital platforms. A core component of the Dalet Galaxy five platform for news workflows, Dalet CubeNG enables Teleticino and IB3 to create dynamic branding that up-levels visual news narratives across traditional, digital and social channels. “With news consumption growth across digital channels and audiences craving image-rich news stories, it’s critical that broadcasters have a connected premium graphics workflow that empowers journalists with tools to add engaging visuals that drive a consistent brand whether they are covering a breaking news event for primetime television or bringing viewers on a content journey across social platforms,” comments Jérémy Krein, Dalet CubeNG Product Manager, Dalet. “With graphics creation and delivery at the heart of the story-centric news workflow, Dalet CubeNG enables a seamless multimedia production experience that is a quantum leap ahead of its predecessor in terms of quality, features and performance. And it’s available today for our Dalet Galaxy five customers.” A major upgrade to the existing Dalet Cube graphics platform, Dalet CubeNG features a redesigned, highly scalable architecture and modern web-based UI.

"Dalet: the art of data" - a FEED Magazine article
We all know media companies are gathering lots of data about their audiences. This can induce some anxiety in viewers, especially when they realise content providers sometimes know more about their behaviour than they know themselves. But the final goal of audience data collection is – or if it isn’t, you should really rethink your business priorities – to provide better, more useful services and, as a result, to increase revenue...Read more Read the full article

If there’s one point everyone in the media industry can agree upon, it’s that the amount of content that needs to be produced, managed and archived effectively is now growing at an unprecedented rate. For content creators, this means their choice of media asset management (MAM) technology could hardly be more critical. And for MAM developers and vendors, it means an ever-lengthening list of requirements they must work tirelessly to accommodate...Read more Read the full article
The Evolution of Sports Broadcasting – Wimbledon as a Case in Point
We have seen an abundance of live streams available to watch Wimbledon for several years. Take Virgin Media for instance – the broadcast channel surprised everyone in 2019 by announcing that it would be offering its customers access to all of the big matches on Centre Court in 4K with HDR. This was a strategic move for Virgin Media, by timing it around one of the flagship sporting events of the year it helped to increase subscriptions and provide its customers with a high-quality viewing experience. Meaning that the broadcaster remains relevant and a viable option and platform for people to enjoy major sporting events, creating a competitive edge against its market competitors. Content supply chain control Wimbledon had predicted the rise in new technologies a couple of years ago and set up its own broadcast division to future-proof its control over technology, content, and engagement. In the past, Wimbledon’s broadcasting rights was outsourced to the BBC; The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), Wimbledon’s organizer, had limited access and control over The Championship’s content. It was therefore an obvious decision, in 2017, for AELTC to announce that Wimbledon Broadcasting Services (WBS) will have full ownership of the TV cameras and broadcast output internationally. This was a sports industry trend at the time, rights holders demanded greater control over their content supply chain. Tennis Australia was a pioneer in bringing TV production in-house for the Australian Open two years earlier. AELTC now oversees its individual stakes and audience engagement in-house, building on its existing stakeholder relationships (whilst staying friends with the BBC) and exploring new revenue streams. The BBC still maintains exclusive rights to Wimbledon’s broadcast in the UK, but it will no longer have any say on production costs. The Championships is now capable of maximizing on its wealth of legacy content, in addition to new and archived material - an average of three matches per court, each day, video from matches can add up to hundreds of hours of footage. The audience will now benefit from added choice, access to a broader range of content, and ultimately an enhanced user experience across different platforms. A platform for monetization Enter the Ooyala Flex Media Platform, a technology solution that helps its customers future-proof their own levels of control. Whether it’s an existing or new piece of technology that needs integrating into the ecosystem, content retrieval from several sources, or delivering media to more endpoints – the Ooyala Flex Media Platform empowers them to do this, and more. OoyalaMAM enables organizations to manage, search, edit and deliver to multiple destinations; helping them unlock previously untapped opportunities. Once you have full visibility of your content catalog, and how to source it quickly and efficiently, the ability to monetize becomes massive. Today, the Ooyala Flex Media Platform is helping multiple sports organizations such as Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), National Rugby League (NRL), and many more to do exactly this - help take control of their own destiny and have that direct engagement with their fans. The need for speed (and AI) Going back to the focus on efficiency and speed… AI has helped AELTC to successfully streamline its content supply chain in a time- and cost-efficient manner. It not only localizes content for the UK market, but also creates and distributes a significant number of original videos for different markets - delivering an all-round excellent user experience. Organizers will also find additional revenue coming-in from sponsors and global broadcast partners, who now have an augmented library of content to engage with fans. The Ooyala Flex Media Platform, together with Dalet Media Cortex, now provides AI-driven workflows to automatically associate that metadata against the correct content. This hands back valuable time to customers in both financial and delivery terms. Once the metadata has been automatically indexed with Dalet Media Cortex, you can then go into OoyalaMAM and review the metadata and manually add, change, and delete anything that needs that last adjustment from a human intervention. The ability to marry automation and manual workflows gives sports rights holders and distributors a powerful metadata enrichment engine, and allows them to be reassured that their metadata is being correctly inserted. The secret to optimizing speed and efficiency in a content supply chain is to harmonize and manage all its components, making it as flexible and organic as possible. Although this is not an easy feat as Wimbledon and its technology partners have been developing their strategy to improve global fan engagement for 30 years!

Capturing the television audience of the future with OTT
It was only a few years ago that video streaming was seen as a ’nice to have’, an addition to TVs, and there were doubts as to whether Netflix and HBO had the ability to disrupt the broadcast landscape. Consumers now have access to a wide range of viewing options, which explains why video analysis and creative content are more important than ever before. Daily film and video consumption via the internet is increasing for all ages, 52% of UK households connect their TV to the internet. Senior viewership has long been a safe card for traditional TV, generally spending longer hours consuming television compared with younger viewers; with adults in the age group of 65 years and older watching 5.72 hours of TV each day. Yet this is changing at an ever-increasing pace as the demographic now chooses to watch television via OTT platforms such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and YouTube. Read more
