Dalet Boosts Social Media for the Newsroom at NAB 2018
Dalet Social Media Framework puts social networks at the heart of multiplatform news production

Dalet Boosts Social Media for the Newsroom

Dalet Social Media Framework puts social networks at the heart of multiplatform news production.

Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today it will showcase at NAB 2018 (booth SL8010) new capabilities for producers and journalists to tackle the rapidly growing role of social media in the newsroom. “Reuters Institute Digital News Report * stated that in 2017 more than 51% of those sampled (in the US) get news via social media networks. This was up five percentage points from 2016 and twice as many from 2013,” explains Arnaud Elnecave, vice president of marketing at Dalet. “In order to keep pace with today’s hyper-active non-stop news cycle and audiences’ desire for new forms of content interactions, Dalet has interwoven social media functions into every facet of the newsroom. From using social media as a source, all the way to engaging audiences in complementary experiences, this new suite tools have been designed for publishers to very simply and effectively treat social media as an integrated part of their overall day to day operations, alongside traditional outlets.

Powered by the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management, Workflow Orchestration and Editorial platform, the newly revved Dalet Social Media Framework enables editorial teams to harvest, aggregate, analyze, produce and deliver fast-paced news to social media networks, while the rest of the platform helps free up editorial time by further automating business as usual for the more traditional outlets. New Dalet Social Framework capabilities available with the Dalet Galaxy five release and shown at NAB 2018 include:

  • Aggregator: This new feature offers a friendly and efficient UI to use social threads as news sources. Journalists can simply subscribe to topics they need to follow. The module automatically aggregates and displays matching threads.
     
  • Track story popularity: Real-time engagement data presented in familiar social media style data lets journalists know how their posts are performing with audiences and assists in gauging new story angles.
     
  • Support for Facebook business pages: In addition to the ability to publish to Facebook personal accounts, journalists can now publish to business pages with full control over draft or as a final post.
     
  • Advanced social media staging: The new feature allows to time and schedule posts either solo or alongside a developing story (before, during and after a story airs). It also includes the ability to submit and approve social media stories.
     
  • Emoji library: A 6,000 character Emoji library used by Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat communicators is now part of the Dalet Social Media Framework.

 

News Production, Creation and Distribution for a Multimedia World

The flexible Dalet Galaxy five platform allows news operations to either distribute to social media via a traditional CMS integration or to connect directly to Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. This increases the speed in which news is delivered to a global audience and gives journalists full control over their news engagement with the audience.

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.

Dalet Accelerates News Delivery for Times Network
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that Times Network, India’s leading broadcast network, has deployed the Dalet Galaxy media asset management (MAM) and workflow orchestration platform to optimize content utilization and accelerate delivery for its 24/7 news channel “Times NOW”. With a global presence across 100 countries, Times Network houses upscale brands including TIMES NOW, ET NOW, Mirror NOW, Movies NOW & Movies NOW HD, MN+, Romedy NOW & Romedy NOW HD, MNX & MNX HD and Zoom, each of which informs, entertains and engages viewers. “Times Network is the leading broadcast network in India,” states K Yegneshwara Iyer, Senior Vice President & Head of Technology, Times Network. “To sustain this momentum and always be the first to break news, we moved to adopt a platform that could digitalize the archives as well as integrate our media silos, ultimately managing the entire media supply chain for the Times Network. Dalet was the best partner for this mission. Their platform allows us to bring all our content into one place and create seamless access for our users, with tools and intelligence to manage multiple workflows across several locations and business units.” By connecting siloed production and post-production teams and systems across Mumbai and Delhi, Dalet Galaxy enables a comprehensive workflow transformation that gives “Times NOW” a first-to-air breaking news workflow that encompasses the complete story. Key to the transformation was the digitization and integration of Times Network archives. No longer do staff need to manually review archive logs, request media from the archivist, and wait for the content to complete the story. Dalet WebSpace provides immediate access to all content with tools to assemble stories that contain a mix of freshly shot and archival media. With archives fully integrated and digitized, the “Times NOW” archivists are freed from manual search and retrieval of taped media. They can focus their time on enriching the digital content with metadata, making it more searchable and accessible across the entire group. This creates a fluid content supply chain that optimizes content usage, ultimately helping Times NOW journalists enhance their storytelling. “More than creating a friction-free workflow for breaking news, Dalet Galaxy is enabling Times Network to move away from a pay-per-month archive digitization process to a fully owned and managed digital workflow that optimizes content utilization. This is a business benefit that enables them to be more systemic in the way they manage and distribute their content across the entire business operation,” states Johann Zemmour, General Manager, Dalet APAC and EMEA. <iframe width="100%" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NXYKmB-aZuE" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> See Dalet at BroadcastAsia 2019 BroadcastAsia 2019 attendees can book a meeting to see Dalet solutions in action in Singapore on stand 4T4-01.

Dalet’s New Social Media Capabilities are Trending for News Pros
The massive amount of content available to journalists on social media is both a gift and a curse. The ‘wisdom of the crowds’ scenario on social media platforms provides journalists a wealth of real-time commentary on what is - to the digital majority - top breaking news and hot topic trends. News pros can leverage these trending topics to quickly tap into and engage with audiences on what is important to them at that very moment. Great, right? Not exactly. The downside: There has been no effective way to methodically aggregate, harvest, and easily utilize this social media content for a 360-news narrative. It’s a painful manual process to download social content, bring into your MAM, log it and then utilize key pieces for your story. That is, until NAB 2019... Leveraging social media in evolving narratives The Dalet Galaxy five Social Media Framework new “Aggregator Panel,” which made its debut at NAB 2019, solves this obstacle for storytellers who want to leverage social commentary for their evolving narratives. Journalists can set the Dalet Social Media Framework Aggregator Panel to follow any number of topics. The Dalet system will automatically compile - in real time - a running list of the tagged social media posts. Users can easily browse posts and select to download only those posts that are relevant to their story. Behind the scenes, metadata is automatically extracted and indexed in the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog. The intuitive dashboard lets users neatly organize multiple social media storylines. Simple drag and drop of content into carts lets users quickly reutilize posts in breaking stories. Thanks to the underlying Dalet Workflow Engine, the newsroom can automate workflows such as turning social posts into ready-to-air CGs and graphics, making it easy to reutilize content over multiple platforms quickly. <iframe width="100%" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/D-tqWCz8geU" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> In most newsroom environments today, the news producer typically does not have much visibility into what is happening on the digital side of the operation. In a similar scenario, the digital team typically has difficulties accessing the assets including video, images, and scripts that have been created by the producer and news staff. The new Aggregator Panel provides a bridge between these two worlds. More than managing the social media bits in a way that can be used within the story quickly and easily, the new Aggregator Panel gives the newsroom a direct window into the social media world and beyond and digital teams access to the valuable assets being developed in the newsroom. Hello (collaborative) social media workflows The Dalet Galaxy five platform allows both groups to share assets and tools, essentially, creating an entire collaborative social media- friendly workspace. The beauty of the new Dalet Aggregator Panel is that it captures a social post so that content itself is available for production immediately within the collaborative space. Journalists can set the Dalet Social Media Aggregator Panel to follow any number of topics. Simple drag and drop of posts lets users quickly share and reutilize content in breaking stories. That video that is downloaded with the Dalet Aggregator Panel, is not just ‘downloading.’ Dalet recognizes it’s associated to a tweet and transcodes it into a mezzanine format with the correct aspect ratio for production. It automatically places it in the storage system with the metadata form filled out. For the users, it's just a drag-and-drop of the tweet. On the back end, Dalet Galaxy five does all of the heavy lifting. The user can just open it in Dalet OneCut or another editor and start working. The feature is called ‘Tweet to Edit’! It’s the same process for the creation of the graphic. As soon as you transform a tweet into a graphic, that graphic becomes an object within Dalet that you can either schedule in your production rundown or you can play it out on air with your news package. And of course, this is called ‘Tweet to Graphics’. While the Dalet Galaxy five Social Media Framework is great for journalists to publish their social media content, your digital teams may already use another social media management platform. However, for the digital teams, Dalet Galaxy five Social Media Framework does solve a big pain point, and that is efficiency in planning. Many digital teams manage planning using a shared Word or Excel type of document. This static approach provides no insight into the overall newsroom planning. With Dalet Galaxy five and the new Aggregator Panel, digital teams can plan with a full view of the newsroom activities and access to all content, including the harvested social assets.

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.

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.

TV Centre Upgrades to the new Dalet Galaxy five Platform
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that Moscow-based station ТВ Центр (TV Centre) will upgrade its media operation to the new Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform, propelling an HD and beyond production and multiplatform distribution workflow that better connects content with their audience on the device of their choice. A Dalet customer since 2006, TV Centre is a state-run Russia TV station with the fourth largest coverage in Russia after Dalet-powered broadcasters Channel One, Russia-1 and NTV. Dedicated to programming that highlights various aspects of the Capital life, the channel airs nationally and is also broadcasted outside of Russian territory. Facilitating TV Centre newsroom and program media needs from ingest to delivery, the initial Dalet installation featured the Dalet MAM with end-to-end News production, NCRS and playout for the newsroom and embedded production tools for unified search, assembly and distribution of program content. Under the new progressive Dalet Galaxy five powered workflow, TV Centre will move into HD production and delivery with the ability to support higher resolutions in the future. The broadcaster will also leverage the new Dalet Galaxy five Social Media Framework capabilities to further streamline its news content supply chain and expand its audience reach, outputting news content to all major social channels including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. In addition to advancing its social media initiatives, the broadcaster will also be able to integrate its digital platform to its CMS for rapid publishing of news online. Completing the upgrade will be full integration of TV Centre Archives. "The operational goal driving the upgrade to Dalet Galaxy five was our transition to the HD and AVC Intra as our mezzanine format,” explains Alexey Brusnitsky, technical director TV Centre. “However, this move is much more than a technical uplift and there is a bigger strategic picture at play for us at TV Centre. We also wanted to take advantage of the migration to evolve our operation and meet the changing demands of our audience as well as enable future technologies. We felt the Dalet Galaxy five platform offered the agility required to deliver on this ambition with Dalet as our trusted technology partner to help us get to that next level.” Leveraging the Dalet Galaxy five Workflow Engine, TV Centre can now build and orchestrate ingest, transcoding and news automation workflows as well as employ specific archive file migration policies across the entire operation. “The Dalet Galaxy five API integrations are also very appealing for TV Centre specifically for their archives,” explains Johann Zemmour, general manager Dalet EMEA and APAC. “Connecting the archives into the workflow will give them a fluid, connected movement of content from ingest to playout to archive. Further, Dalet Galaxy five will give them the ability to employ IMF workflows in the future utilizing the Dalet AmberFin media processing platform and the Dalet Workflow Engine. The ease with which TV Centre has been able to advance its production and distribution capabilities while integrating a range of in-house systems, underlines just how robust and flexible Dalet Galaxy five is as a platform in which you can evolve the operation and maximize your ROI."

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.

A town square for Europe - Euronews NBC
Renowned news innovator Deborah Turness reveals how she is harnessing new tech, platforms and formats to bring Euronews into the heart of the story and how she turned NBC back into a number one ‘challenger brand’. After a four-year stint in New York, bolstering NBC’s flagship news output, its former US president is one year into her next mission: transforming Euronews NBC into ‘a town square for Europe’. Last June NBC took a 25% stake in the Lyon-based news channel, which led to Deborah Turness’ return from across the pond to become the first president of NBC News International and to oversee content for the new Euronews NBC. According to the British journalist and self-confessed Francophile, NBC had been looking for the right vehicle to boost its international profile for some time and Euronews, which broadcasts in 12 languages to around 3.3m viewers, reaching more than 160 countries, fit the bill perfectly.
