Dalet Announces Key Mobility Advancements for News Operations
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced major mobility enhancements for the management, performance and user experience of remote newsroom operations. Meeting the needs of the growing number of journalists and news producers working remotely, Dalet has made major usability improvements to its Dalet On-the-Go mobile app for smartphones and tablets, boosting the collaborative experience between remote journalists and the newsroom with advanced content contribution and remote planning capabilities through a brand new, modern UI. Advancements to the underlying Dalet Galaxy five news production and distribution platform bring powerful remote editing features like cloud-based “edit while record” and support for modern open-source communications frameworks to accelerate secure content exchange across multisite and distributed newsrooms operations. Dalet Galaxy xCloud, the dedicated, cloud-hosted system managed by Dalet as a full SaaS service, also benefits from these enhancements and connects securely with your existing on-premises system, supporting advanced workflows for remote editing and news production teams. “Every improvement Dalet has made has the end-user in mind to help with agility and efficiency with remote production. This is critical when a journalist is working against the clock, where every keystroke counts while working from their home office or any remote location,” states Bea Alonso, director of product marketing, Dalet. “Our digital-first product strategy focuses on mobility and flexibility. Dalet On-the-Go and remote news production solutions, like Dalet Galaxy xCloud, empower journalists, reporters and chief editors with the technology they need to pivot, remain productive and keep telling vital stories.” Dalet On-the-Go Available from Apple's App Store and Google Play, the latest release of Dalet On-the-Go connects journalists, reporters and chief editors to the newsroom enabling them to manage assignments, story development, review and approval, rundowns, planning, status and contact search, all remotely. Users can easily access their Dalet Galaxy five catalog of video, audio, scripts and wires. Advanced content contribution capabilities and templates let users record media and craft stories quickly mixing local media together with remote content stored within the Dalet Galaxy five system. Dalet’s smart upload features guard against connectivity issues, reconnecting to the upload exactly where it left off when necessary. A feature-rich teleprompter supports on-the-fly reporting while tickers, wires and chat messages keep staff connected to information and late-breaking news. “Dalet On-the-Go, combined with other mobility offerings such as Dalet WebSpace, provides optimal flexibility and mobility. With a standard internet connection, you can manage the entire newsroom flow from your laptop, tablet or phone. It's extremely powerful,” notes Bea. Dalet Galaxy five and Dalet Galaxy xCloud Recently launched as a packaged solution to help with current mobility challenges, the SaaS-based Dalet Galaxy xCloud offering is a full-featured version of the latest Dalet Galaxy five platform that, hosted by Dalet, leverages the cloud to facilitate end-to-end, remote news production workflows. The core remote editing framework supports advanced proxy editing workflows, mixing of central and local content, with proxy content cached locally to eliminate disruptions due to limited bandwidth. Rendering is offloaded to the Dalet Galaxy xCloud system, optimizing performance to break news faster. Bea comments on the ability of Dalet to dial in on the user experience and quickly deliver features and solutions that address mobility needs: “Dalet’s business model, which flows from perpetual CAPEX investment to subscription with SaaS, affords us the opportunity to transform the way we imagine our products and quickly innovate in critical areas such as mobility and flexibility. Our DevOps approach accelerates sequencing of Dalet releases, allowing us to introduce critical adjustments and enhancements as required by our customers in this challenging period.” In addition to the rapid release of customer-centric features, Dalet Galaxy five’s new public API empowers news organizations to customize workflow capabilities and integrations, further optimizing specific operations and business opportunities.

AI-powered productivity! When Speech-to-Text Technology makes you a Super (Media) Hero
Speech to text technologies are brilliant. Last October we discussed how speech-to-text technology can produce excellent out-of-the-box captions as part of Dalet Media Cortex, Dalet’s AI service platform. To complement this Dalet offering, we have now developed Speech Editor, a caption editor that allows you to easily adjust any captions. It is available on Dalet Galaxy five Windows client and Dalet WebSpace, at any step of your production workflow. It only takes a few clicks to adjust wording, fix typos or reposition captions on the screen. Fabulous - we now have an end-to-end captioning workflow! Edit captions easily with Dalet Speech Editor Do you want to save time? Speech Editor also features a transcript view that will save you hours of precious production time. If you need to browse through a long video file, say a 2-hour interview, you can simply browse through the transcript and capture interesting sequences just by browsing through the transcript. Rough cut leveraging automatic captions You can highlight soundbites, easily create clips and save them to your MediaBin (we’ll soon be writing another blog post on the subject of MediaBins, as they can completely transform your production workflow!). So, not only you’ve pocketed yourself free time, but you facilitate collaboration by sharing the best highlights with the rest of the editorial team. <iframe width="100%" height="415" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/pYsomrAGZeM?start=93" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> But wait, there’s more… If that wasn’t enough, when you index your media with Dalet Media Cortex, it will also create added-value metadata such as keywords and content classification, making it easy for you to find content in future. Dalet Media Cortex brings you all-in-one AI: Besides advanced Speech-to-Text technology, you get the benefits of automatic indexation while getting captions, and vice versa. And thanks to productivity-driven workflows such as text-based interview editing, you truly will gain weekly time savings. And in case you were wondering, all these SaaS, cloud-based services are accessible through Dalet WebSpace anytime, anywhere, including your home office.
What is HDR, WCG and Dolby Vision and why does it matter?
Alphabet soup starring HDR and WCG "Hey Guys, let's re-invent the entire TV and Cinema chains from Camera to Screen!" said no high-ranking executive in any board meeting ever. The whole concept sounds like crazy talk when you say it out loud, but in reality that's what the High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) revolution have done over the recent years. We've moved on from glowing goop The cinema world, shooting on film, has always had a little more freedom that the TV world when it comes to controlling brightness, color and contrast between the camera and the screen. There were limitations in physics and chemistry, of course. You could make the projector brighter assuming you didn't melt the film and you could make the film more sensitive provided you liked that grainy look on the screen. The TV world, however had a fixed and inflexible transmission infrastructure that was stabilized in the 1950s. The relationship between the photons going into a camera and the photons coming out of most of today's TV are still based on the response characteristics of the glowing goop you find inside CRTs (Cathode Ray Tubes) of that early era. So in comes HDR. "Hey guys the eye can capture about 14 stops of brightness so let’s transmit that." is the fundamental idea behind HDR. In a basic MPEG system, the brightness of most pixels is represented by a number between 0 and 255. This gives you the ability to represent 8 stops (28 values) whereas we would like to represent 214 values in our HDR chain i.e. the brightness of each pixel is represented by a number between 0 and 16383. Sounds simple really. But, what is Dolby Vision HDR? Let's redesign the entire Cinema and Broadcast Value chain The complexity comes with making sure that each and every device in the value chain from camera through switcher and ingest and transcode understands what these new numerical values actually mean. In an ideal world we would replace all the old kit with brand new kit, but that's not really practical so the HDR systems that were created have compatibility modes to allow these new bright, colorful pixels to travel across traditional SDI, H.264 and IP transmission paths with good integrity to appear at the final display to show wondrous pictures. Now, what is Dolby Vision HDR? Dolby Vision is one of the HDR systems that requires metadata to work. Its trick is identifying that in any typical scene you only use a portion of the total available dynamic range. A dark shadowy scene in a cave will need more bits allocated in the small numerical pixel value ranges. A bright seaside scene on a sunny day will need more bits allocated in the large numerical pixel value range. This scene by scene adaption is enabled with metadata that tells each device how to behave for that scene. The Dalet AmberFin team is really proud that it's the first software only transcoder and workflow engine to have full support for the Dolby Vision system. It can do this in a wide range of different codecs in parallel with the usual array of high quality video processing functions from scaling to Standards Conversion. The Dolby Vision metadata itself might be carried in a sidecar XML file or embedded within the media file as a data track. Whichever mechanism is used, it's vitally important to retain the synchronization between the metadata and the images to get the best results particularly when aligning metadata changes to hard cuts in the video. This becomes doubly important when frame rate converting because blended frames and mis-timing of metadata combined are highly visible, highly annoying and consume a lot of bitrate in the final encoding. A transcoder like the Dalet AmberFin platform gets all of those complex factors right first time, resulting in high efficiency, low bitrate, outstanding picture. In today's era, the consumer often lead the professionals So, what is Dolby Vision HDR and why is it important? HDR is important because the consumers of media get to see HDR on the content they make on their mobile devices. If the paid-for entertainment content they see on other platforms looks washed out and old-fashioned by comparison, then this will be a factor in what media gets consumed. If anyone has a spare crystal ball to help predict what this future might look like, then I would be very grateful to borrow it for a while!

How to continue producing news in times of confinement?
What did just happen? It is astonishing to see how a virus that is less than 0.12 μm big, with no allies, no enemies and no intelligence is hitting the world economy so badly in just a couple of months. Obviously, the Media and Entertainment industry is no exception. With half of the world’s countries under confinement, broadcasters need to adapt extremely fast – and suppliers need to respond. The vast majority of newsroom users - journalists, video editors, chief editors – are forced to stay home. While production hub systems continue to run, the challenge is to provide users with all the tools they need to work from their home, on their laptops or mobile devices. In conversations with our customers, we have learnt this is often problematic for multiple reasons. Usually the on-premise systems do not support remote connections, or there are not enough VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) licenses, or because the VPN is not adequately dimensioned. Overall, limitations revolve around security and IT infrastructure. Clearly, until recent times, home-based production was neither an established practice nor part of any tried-and-tested business continuity plan. The new normal is here If this sounds all too-familiar in your news organization, Dalet Galaxy xCloud can help – it is a dedicated, cloud-hosted Dalet Galaxy five system, managed by Dalet as a full SaaS service. It connects to your existing on-premises system and supports workflows for remote editing teams. Having talked to our clients and understood their most immediate needs, we wanted to help by packaging a multi-purpose solution to sustain their business continuity. Dalet Galaxy xCloud secures, first and foremost, continuity for all home-based collaborative editing needs, while users remain connected to the central Dalet Galaxy system. At the core of the solution is a SaaS-based Dalet Galaxy five system, installed, maintained and operated by Dalet. This cloud-based solution allows users to: connect with Dalet OneCut standalone clients, enabling powerful remote editing capabilities. Content creators can mix local and remote content, and leverage OneCut’s smart caching mechanism that provides a seamless remote editing experience connect with Dalet WebSpace to perform everyday news production tasks: search, preview, approve, edit metadata, log, cut and more. receive real-time updates and access the latest ingested content as it arrives in the central production system, enabling collaborative workflows for distributed team members work with Dalet Xtend, which supports Adobe Premiere Pro editing within the Dalet Galaxy xCloud environment <iframe width="100%" height="415" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/pYsomrAGZeM" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Leveraging Dalet SaaS-Based Solutions for Remote Production Workflows You’ll be (remote) working in no time! What makes Dalet Galaxy xCloud extremely handy is that it can be quickly deployed, your home-office users can easily install Dalet OneCut on their laptop and start editing and collaborating with your central system right away. The solution comes with multiple options such as real-time chat, content exchange, edit-while-record, and a wide range of Dalet Galaxy five newsroom features. The Dalet Galaxy xCloud system can potentially connect to any on-premises MAM or PAM system and leverages the power of the cloud, making it highly scalable and secure. Contact us to discuss how Dalet Galaxy xCloud can help your news teams to continue to tell vital stories, while staying safe, no matter where they are.
Dalet SaaS Solution Focuses on Business Continuity and Remote Production for Media Operations
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, made available today an important remote production solution that enables newsrooms and media organizations to carry on critical content production and distribution operations amid the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. Dalet Galaxy xCloud, a secure and highly scalable SaaS solution hosted by Dalet, extends on-premises production and enables an exceptional, friction-free remote editing and collaboration experience from home to hub. “Today, more than ever, our news customers play a critical role in keeping communities informed and connected. Our tools form a foundation for creating and delivering vital news and information to millions of viewers. It’s imperative that our customers’ operations continue without disruption,” states Kevin Savina, Director of Product Strategy, Dalet. “We have designed Dalet Galaxy xCloud to give our customers maximum mobility when they need it most, whether they are at the office or facility, at an offsite production or in the field, working with freelancers or working from home, as many of us are today.” Dalet Galaxy xCloud enables customers to work productively from home leveraging cloud infrastructure, while still using familiar production tools, such as Dalet OneCut, Dalet WebSpace, and Dalet On-the-Go from their home-based devices. Adobe® Premiere® Pro based editing workflows are also supported through the Dalet Xtend plugin. Kevin explains the simplicity and its importance, “Because the Dalet-hosted service extends the capabilities of existing on-premises systems, our customers can quickly transition to working from home using the same tools and workflows within a safe and controlled environment. Security and scalability are incredibly important for our customers who must quickly turn on remote capabilities for hundreds of users and multiple workflows.” For more information, you can visit https://www.dalet.com/business-services/galaxy-xcloud In addition to Dalet Galaxy xCloud, Dalet offers a number of existing solutions to address the challenges introduced by new working conditions: Dalet OnePlay to run your studio with a reduced crew while preserving quality.

Mexican Media Giant TV Azteca Captivates Viewers Across Digital, Social and Terrestrial Channels with Dalet
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced that TV Azteca, Mexico’s leading multimedia conglomerate, has deployed Dalet Galaxy five to reinvigorate the company’s content supply chain and deliver robust programming options faster to its audiences across all traditional, digital and social platforms. The highly popular media group offers a wide range of entertainment programming including, series, live musicals, thematic programs and sports. In addition to the diverse schedule, TV Azteca delivers news 18 hours per day through a network of local stations across the country. “The goal of TV Azteca’s ambitious transformation was to connect the digital content traffic for TV with the digital platforms and deliver to our audiences programming options that encompass the breadth and depth of our news reporting, and the entirety of our outstanding media catalog. Dalet Galaxy five gave us the technical capabilities to build this innovative media production ecosystem, with the workflow acceleration to engage with our audiences in real-time,” explains Pedro Carmona, CTO of TV Azteca. “The project execution was remarkable and the resulting impact immediate. The TV Azteca operation went from a manual process, where on average it took 10 minutes to get content on-air, to near-instant and often automated real-time delivery of content and programs. The benchmark for improved performance was undeniable and provided us the efficiency required to expand program options for our viewers.” Accelerating workflows by a factor of ten, TV Azteca implemented alongside Dalet Galaxy five highly mobile and collaborative production tools such as Dalet OneCut and Dalet WebSpace. The robust solution streamlines content production field to facility, enabling more than 50 journalists to more efficiently prepare stories anywhere in the world. Further fueling the fast-turn workflow are Dalet’s social media connectors which enable users to easily publish content to TV Azteca’s social channels. Seamlessly connected, the integration makes creating and publishing content for Facebook, Twitter and other channels fast and fluid. With several distinct media departments that previously operated in siloed production verticals, TV Azteca powered by Dalet Galaxy five is now fully connected, interweaving workflows from Programs, News, Sports, Archives and Marketing; ensuring content and program information is shared for maximum production and distribution efficiency. Iván Neri, CIO, TV Azteca explains the inefficiencies eliminated by Dalet’s modern workflow design, “We used to manually copy files over from one department to another and this took an enormous amount of time. Dalet Galaxy five automates the entire file migration from transcoding to metadata capture, which is so incredibly important for making content searchable across our archives. Before implementing the Dalet solution, we had duplicates and inconsistencies in content tagging that hindered collaboration and prevented us from maximizing our content’s value. Automating processes and streamlining the workflow allows us to better utilize the rich programming we have stored in our vaults to audiences everywhere in the world.” According to third party consultants hired by TV Azteca, the resulting Dalet-powered media infrastructure reduced production inefficiencies by up to 30% across the operations. “TV Azteca’s approach in designing its new media operations is lightyears ahead,” states Julien Decaix, General Manager Americas, Dalet. “More than overcoming the inefficiencies, they understood that audiences expected to engage with TV Azteca across all platforms and built a highly fluid media ecosystem that enables them to optimize all aspects of production. They now engage their viewers on a deeper level with better and more diverse content options.” For more information on Dalet Galaxy five and Dalet solutions, please visit www.dalet.com.

Effortless Content Discovery for Faster News and Richer Stories
As you might remember, the first post of this series focused on how Smart Captions can automate 80% of your captioning and subtitling work, generating additional revenues. We now focus on how Dalet Media Cortex can vastly improve your content discovery experience, helping you unearth valuable content effortlessly. The Pro and Enterprise versions of Dalet Media Cortex introduce users to a unique experience with the Dalet Discovery Panel. The tool is designed to automatically surface recommendations for relevant media within your Dalet Galaxy five system, which is related to the content you are working on. What can discovery search do for me? Well, two things for starters. First, it will search content automatically, based on the context of your story as you type it. Dalet Media Cortex surfaces relevant media that is not currently part of your Story MediaBin. Secondly, it provides entity identification. This means that you’ll get an understanding of certain terms such as people, locations, organizations and events with descriptions, illustrations, and weblinks coming from Bing or Google Knowledge Graph. What’s the functionality behind it? The Dalet Discovery Panel is currently available in Dalet Galaxy five’s Planning Editor and Story Editor, and consists of three parts: Keywords: Dalet Media Cortex suggests a collection of keywords, key phrases and relevant IPTC NewsCodes. These are specific to the recommendations it provides you with. As you continue to write your story, the keywords become more precise. Recommendations: other stories, media or wires are suggested in order of relevance. This section is constantly updated based on suggested keywords. MediaBin (a topic for a separate blog post!): recommendations are tightly integrated into your MediaBin If one of the recommendations is of particular relevance to your story, you can simply tag it to move it from your recommendations list to your MediaBin. What is in it for me? The Dalet Discovery Panel automatically surfaces content that you would not have easily found manually. This allows you to create deeper, richer and more meaningful news stories, with a wider range of sources. An efficient and easy way to maximize the use of your archive! Additionally, it saves you searching time! Consider it an intelligent and complex search query that helps your story evolve… And, the best thing, you didn’t need to scratch your head to build that complex search! When you consider all the stories you may write over a week, automatic discovery will save you hours looking for that elusive content that was essential to your piece! Finally, you stay in control: you can add, delete or modify keywords and IPTC NewsCodes, plus you can pick and choose what recommended content is most suitable for your story. With the Dalet Discovery Panel provided by Dalet Media Cortex, not only you save searching time looking for valuable content, but you also increase your stories’ quality and meaning by bringing in more valuable sources. Are you ready to start creating deeper stories? Contact us for a demo!
Small steps for designers, giant leaps for users! How UX drives growth
With the advent of omnipresent technologies (think smartphones) in our daily lives, free/try apps have transformed the way we make products and the way consumers expect to be served up products that are intuitive and enjoyable. Just like consumers flocking from one social app to the other, a new generation of creative media professionals have adopted, from their personal digital lives, a “try and keep/throw” approach to media tools. i.e., "if I don't like it or can't get my work done, I'll look for another one." As software vendors, we must embrace this change to enrich our user community's experience in their daily work, with minimal distractions from the application, i.e., focus on the craft, not the tools. We have also seen a shift towards putting the emphasis on product design from users' feedback versus historically "Technical experts/Engineer," where the focus was on the technical capabilities of the solution with less importance on usability, complexity, intuitiveness for the persons actually doing the work. Back in the day Back in the day, you had to be an engineer to operate sophisticated technical software. Today you can cut a movie on your iPhone. Not that you would want to, but the fact that the tools are there for the masses has created a baseline from a user perspective, on expectations as to what they want and expect from a product. Today, our media professionals need to work with software tools to tell their story. A UX (user experience)-centric approach in software design focuses on abstracting the complexity to surface and empower creatives. User Experience is at the center of a successful product and a primary axis to our commitment to user/market-driven approach to producing value for our client community. This need for transformation in how software vendors interact with an organization, and users, means putting transformative approaches and processes to dynamically engage with the user community much earlier in the product development stage, from ideation to release, and onwards. Your accelerator to market success The value in implementing a user-driven feedback loop model is a tenfold accelerator to market, with well-received releases that provide incremental value. Ideas are great, but unless tested against the intended audience, the product output generates frustration and dissatisfaction, further introducing new cycles of product iteration. Great designs can have a positive effect on the quality, accuracy, and user satisfaction/adoption of a product. This is what User Experience design practice enables. I want Ketchup, not a workout It is essential to differentiate UX (user experience) from UI (user interface), however. While UX focuses on "how to do something and how something should work" in the most intuitive, precise, and efficient way, UI focuses on the presentation layer and visual appeal of the product. A simple example: a button. UX design is focused on the position, discovery, feedback, and interaction with careful attention in taking into account both previous and following functions. Whereas UI design will focus on how to make the button visible, accounting for the shape, color, and typography to make the user want to press it. Courtesy of the author A great consumer-goods example that emphasizes this is ketchup bottles. When looking at the glass bottle, anyone can attest that it conveys elements of quality and aesthetics; however, the user experience is disappointing to everyone, including my grandmother, having users come up with workarounds for the poor usability. On the other hand, the plastic squeeze bottle, while looking cheap, is immediately intuitive in its use, and the fact that it stands on its cap, further adds a value of being ready to be dispensed by a simple squeeze. The wheel is not enough Credit: Nima Torabi The above example highlights the iteration of design of a user problem statement: "I want a mode of transportation that gets me from point A to point B safely, comfortably and expeditiously". While the top approach addressed the components of the product, each iteration was rendered useless on its own and not adopted (i.e., failed) as it didn't address the user's need. What is vital here are tangible, usable deliverables, or MVPs (Minimum Viable Product). “User experience encompasses all aspects of the end-user’s interaction with the company, its services, and its products.” Don Norman, Nielsen Norman Group (Credited with inventing the term UX) Back to the ketchup bottle, we can see that the first bottle was usable and formed the basis, by allowing feedback, which led to further iterations, each providing more intuitive designs. Note the middle image, where the bottle is now squeezable, would have never been initially designed without this user feedback. It’s all about the user User research is at the center of our approach at Dalet, both for outbound activities (on-site interviews, regular visits to see the product in use, etc.) and inbound (through conducting surveys, facilitating user community forums, etc.). This is the approach we took when we set out to re-design the user experience for our OoyalaMAM, the main user interface for the Ooyala Flex Media Platform: usability and speed were our top goals – but that’s a story for our next blog post. The recently refreshed OoyalaMAM user interface We want to enable our user community to converse and contribute while gaining knowledge and identifying trends that would need to be slated in the roadmap. As part of this user research, we are putting in place forums for the community to contribute, collaborate, and drive innovative ideas at the forefront of our practice. We'd love to have you aboard!

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.
