Better Together! Dalet Acquires Ooyala Flex Media Platform business.
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced it has expanded integration of the Interra Systems’ BATON platform to include the Ooyala Flex Media Platform.
Cupertino, California-based Interra Systems' BATON is the media industry’s leading machine learning- and AI-enabled automated file-based quality control (QC) platform. It provides comprehensive quality and compliance checks for VOD content, in the cloud and on-premises, for linear and streaming workflows.
The expanded technology partnership enables Dalet Galaxy five and Ooyala Flex Media Platform customers to deploy advanced automated quality assurance and compliance workflows.
"Dalet and Interra have had a long, successful partnership. In the past five years alone, we have done over 50 joint Interra Baton and Dalet Galaxy projects, worldwide,” said Kevin Savina, director of product strategy, Dalet. “This has been a very fruitful relationship and we expect this success to continue with the support of Interra Baton to the Ooyala Flex Media Platform, with the next major deployment being in India.”
Dalet Galaxy five and Ooyala Flex Media Platform customers leveraging BATON integration include VDM, Telefe, Mediacorp, Bundesliga, MBC Dubai, National Archives of Singapore, BBC Wales, Mediaset, ABS-CBN and NOS Portugal.
Acquired by Dalet in July 2019, the Ooyala Flex Media Platform is an open and extensible asset management solution that simplifies and streamlines the entire content supply chain, from production to profit, significantly reducing clients’ costs and complexity while increasing their revenue. The new API-based integration is designed to address QC seamlessly throughout the supply chain, automating quality checks at various stages and powering today’s media factories from ingest through production and distribution. BATON’s QC reports can be populated automatically to metadata fields for each asset within the workflow, enabling users to see the results of the QC analysis.
“Interra Systems’ BATON integrates tightly with Ooyala Flex Media Platform and ensures content readiness throughout the value chain,” said Anupama Anantharaman, VP of Product Management, Interra Systems. “This collaboration will benefit clients of both our companies, while enabling content creators and distributors to deliver high quality content.”
“Video quality is increasingly crucial in today’s competitive M&E landscape,” said Bea Alonso, director of product marketing, Dalet. “The integration of our platforms with the industry-leading BATON QC platform provides an automated solution for accelerated delivery of high-quality, tested content, opening the door for media companies to increase their operational efficiency and better monetize their catalogs, no matter their business model.”
