Dalet Launches New Integration for Adobe Audition at NAB 2019
Dalet Galaxy five and Adobe Audition enable seamless audio production collaboration across the media enterprise.

Dalet Galaxy five integrates Adobe Audition

Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition connects professional audio production to the main content value chain. The integration includes support for session management, including the ability to search and browse the categories of the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog.

Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, announced at NAB 2019 (booth SL6610) the release of Dalet Xtend for Adobe® Audition®, connecting professional audio production to the main content value chain. Adobe Audition offers a comprehensive professional toolset for mixing and editing audio for video, broadcast, and podcast content. The Dalet Xtend panel for Adobe Audition brings support for session management, including the ability to search and browse the categories of the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog. Users can import both audio and video titles with locators as markers into the Adobe Audition timeline, as well as clips, storyboards, and EDLs. Adobe Audition editors can also save sessions as Dalet Xtend titles directly back to the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog and archive without leaving the application.

“Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition empowers creatives with wider and deeper access to metadata-rich assets, minimizing the technical complexity of tracking, converting, migrating or even simply locating media across the enterprise thanks to Dalet Galaxy five,” comments Golan Tsarfaty, editing product line manager, Dalet. “With the underlying Dalet Galaxy five platform managing the nuances of the media lifecycle, Adobe Audition audio editors are free to focus on the art of editing, mixing and finishing their packages using the very best audio assets available.” 


Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition

 

“The Adobe-Dalet collaboration continues to bring expanded capabilities for our customers. Dalet’s new integration for Adobe Audition is a great addition to their panel for Adobe Premiere® Pro,” states Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for Adobe video. “Our customers accessing Dalet’s Audition panel will create new efficiencies in their production workflows, enabling them to focus on their creative output.”

 

Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition governs access to Dalet Galaxy five content hubs and archives, enabling cross operation collaboration with a comprehensive level of metadata tracking and management that ensures asset genealogy stays intact. XYZ explains the user benefits, “Up until now, audio editors would have had to export a limited audio file to a shared folder on the storage platform and then import it into Adobe Audition and vice versa after they were done working with it. Important details such as metadata were lost in the transaction. Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition opens a window into the Dalet Galaxy five content catalog and archive without having to leave the Adobe Audition application. With full access to assets, audio editors can expand their creative palette and view projects as a whole, simplifying their day to day operations, making the most of their valuable time, and freely collaborating with colleagues across the operation. 


Tsarfaty concludes “Dalet Xtend for Adobe Audition is an important step in simplifying professional audio production workflows. Following the same development philosophy of our Dalet Xtend panel for Adobe Premiere Pro offering, we will continue to work closely with Adobe to evolve our integrations, building an ecosystem that simplifies enterprise multimedia workflows while unleashing the full potential of creative teams capabilities and collaboration.”

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.

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. At this point, attentive readers will have noticed that this blog only contains in fact 9 “things”!

Bringing broadcast archives to life!
"AI is not just about cataloging and preservation, it’s about connecting your content to opportunity.” Jean Gabriel Minel, Head of Research and Development for the French National Audiovisual Institute (INA) This quote sums up particularly well the key theme at the FIAT-IFTA World Conference held last month in Venice, Italy, and hosted by the RAI at the Palazzo Labia, a 17th century palace. Renowned for its exchange of ideas and best practices in archival science, the international symposium provided attendees the opportunity to discover innovative, AI-powered content management and archiving use cases and learn more about the latest technology trends from leading broadcasters, media organizations, and technology companies. As a Gold Sponsor participant of the FIAT-IFTA World Conference, I was honoured to attend and represent Dalet. I had a chance to speak with attendees and show them how advanced content management, workflow orchestration, and best of breed AI services can better preserve, enrich, share, and monetize their archival content. With the combination of virtually limitless cloud storage and computing power, a new era is upon us. Many of the attendees I met were archivists who hold degrees in library studies and have advanced knowledge of content lifecycle and asset management systems. During the conference, these tech-savvy content gatekeepers presented on how they are pioneering the use of AI to further enrich archived content in order to increase accessibility and generate new business opportunities. Many demonstrated that with automatic content discovery capabilities, media organizations can better monetize archival content and leverage their assets to gain a competitive edge over new entrants on their markets. Applying AI to Media Workflows - The Need for a Plan I found that most of those presenting about AI at the conference were trying to solve a similar issue: surface content easily to users with limited human intervention in logging the content. I can relate to this, as over the past 12 years working for Dalet, I have taught many of our customers about the importance of properly tagging content. With our latest generation toolset I now educate users on how to discover content that they need for their creations; should it be for creating promos, documentaries, news packages or highlights for sports. I was honoured to present “The Dalet Living Archive: Utilizing AI in Archive Workflows” and demonstrate how Dalet solutions help media organizations streamline their workflows, reduce costs, and empower content creators with new tools to research, craft, deliver and promote their quality content to audiences on all platforms for consumption. In the presentation, I demonstrated how Dalet Media Cortex automatically enriches content with AI services for: facial recognition speech to text entity detection content moderation object recognition OCR detection. I showed that enrichment of the content triggers Dalet workflow orchestration to auto-create promos or highlights, and turn the AI-generated speech-to-text data into subtitles. I also showed that while a journalist types a story, Dalet Content Discovery detects entities such as people, places, and organizations as well as concepts, and then recommends content from the library with similar tags. A Winning Example - Bundesliga Fußball Archives Sportcast, a subsidiary of DFL (Deutsche Fußball Liga), which oversees the largest digital football archive in the world, manages the entire value chain from stadium to the world with the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform. Sportcast has built a Media Portal on top of their Dalet system to connect and monetize all of the Bundesliga assets, leveraging the latest Dalet Orchestration technology to automate media processes and deliver more efficiently their partners. With a grueling production schedule of 617 games each year, Sportcast is piloting AI-based indexing to optimize logging workflows and further enrich the massive amount of incoming content. <iframe width="100%" height="400" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6Y2wKPtTYAQ" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> With great powers come great opportunities... In addition to the Sportcast case study, there were other very interesting use cases presented at the conference, including the development of Visual Searches at the RAI, Ontology detection at RTVE, and facial/organization detection at RTS. The BBC demonstrated a new system that discovers content based on historical, cultural and other topical references linked to that particular day and publishes it to social media. They demonstrated how the system retrieved a funny clip from the 1950s for International Egg day. The asset would have never been found with a conventional search. The BBC’s AI system found it and within minutes automatically published it to Twitter. At the FIAT-IFTA World Conference, just a few months after they posted the Egg video, it had received 15 million views, further demonstrating how you can give life to old content. With AI giving us so much data about an asset - thousands of tags for less than a minute of video for instance - a concern was brought up at the conference: would it become too difficult to choose content that is actually relevant? The short answer, with the development of new tools utilizing faceted search capabilities, content discovery, workflow orchestration and auto-creation of content, the user decides what is important, giving viewers so many possible angles to the same story. Prestigious awards for innovative projects Held at the Scuola Grande San Giovanni, the FIAT-IFTA Gala Awards Ceremony recognized a number of Dalet customers including Danish Radio, SBS and RAI. Our congratulations to them and their teams on the accolades, and sincere gratitude for contributing to the discussions and innovation in the area of archives! 2018 ARCHIVE ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS We also would like to thank FIAT-IFTA and the RAI for organizing such an amazing event and look forward to next year's conference in Croatia.

Dalet Releases New Adobe Premiere Pro CC Integration
Dalet announced today that it has released a new version of its Dalet Xtend plugin for Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC. Dalet Xtend connects Adobe Premiere Pro CC users to the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform, providing a direct gateway to metadata-rich assets and facilitating collaboration with users such as journalists, prep editors, sports producers and other production personnel on the Dalet Galaxy platform. The new HTML-5 Dalet Xtend panel for Adobe Premiere Pro CC adds support for multi-sequence export, locator inheritance, configurable metadata forms for exporting content, and support for the ‘while’ scenarios when exporting from Adobe Premiere Pro. By connecting via the Dalet Xtend plugin, editors working on Adobe Premiere Pro can import media, including shot selections, sequences and EDLs, made by other users on the Dalet Galaxy platform, as well as previously saved Adobe Premiere Pro Projects and Sequences. Feature highlights of the Dalet Xtend for Adobe Premiere Pro CC include: Browse and search the Dalet MAM from Adobe Premiere Pro Saving against a placeholder in the production system from Adobe Premiere Pro can trigger a wide variety of workflows Edit growing files Option to work in proxy resolution and render in hi-res to save on bandwidth View Dalet Galaxy timecode-based metadata in Adobe Premiere Pro such as closed captions, QC, censorship, editorial review and more from the MAM to Premiere Pro and vice versa Save Adobe Premiere Pro projects and sequences in Dalet Galaxy, enabling multi-editor collaboration Bidirectional metadata exchange between Adobe Premiere Pro & Dalet Galaxy Adobe Premiere Pro users have instant access to content in the Dalet Galaxy MAM and edit in place - out of the shared storage - even as material is still being recorded. The plugin also allows the editors to choose to work on proxy, leveraging the smaller file size to work faster and reduce network dependency, then switch to full resolution when needed or for final render of their project. Video packages can be pushed to air as media are still being rendered to the central storage. Editors can directly save against a placeholder within Dalet Galaxy, an ideal feature for fast turnaround workflows like news. Bidirectional metadata exchange and genealogy ensure all useful data are passed on to Adobe Premiere Pro, retained throughout the editing process and exported back to Dalet Galaxy for consistency. The exchange is configurable and can include information such as manual annotations, closed captions extracted from video, report data from media analysis engines (like QC), censorship markers, digital rights, etc. Dalet will be showcasing the new version of Dalet Xtend for Adobe Premiere Pro CC at NAB 2017 on booth SL6210.

Dalet Expands Choices for Broadcasters and Content Producers with Solutions for Media Workflows Orchestration
Dalet Digital Media Systems will be presenting the evolutions of its range of solutions at NAB 2017, from April 24th through April 27th, on booth SL6210. Based on the Dalet Galaxy orchestration and asset management platform, these solutions help streamline a variety of workflows including: Programs & Promos management, Multi-Platform distribution, Unified News Operations, Sports highlights & magazines, Post-Production and Multimedia radio. Dalet will reveal a number of new features and functional enhancements, including: the launch of a new range of options for cost-effective business continuity, a full suite of tools and data model to manage IMF packages at scale, and enhancements to social media publication tools. “As audiences keep demanding more content and shifting on which platform they want to consume it, content producers and distributors need to be able to continuously realign strategies and adapt. This directly calls for their operations to become fully agile. The Dalet Galaxy platform offers the perfect foundation for this transition, combining a mature and proven Workflow Engine technology, the industry leading MAM capabilities, a comprehensive set of powerful user tools, and a wide ecosystem of connected partner technologies.” states Arnaud Elnecave, vice president of marketing, Dalet. “The new Dalet tools shown at NAB answer critical business needs, simplify the user experience, and invigorate operations across the board, from ensuring business continuity via a secure virtualized or cloud-based infrastructure, to efficient bidirectional integration with social platforms, or simplifying a complex need like mass management of IMF packages.” Attendees at the NAB 2017 exhibition can book a private meeting to discuss any of the following technology innovations shown at NAB: Business Continuity: For existing Dalet customers, Dalet introduces a new range of options for affordable business continuity. These solutions tap into a combination of innovative features for replication and failover, as well as virtualization and cloud to reduce the cost of infrastructure of the disaster recovery site. Social Media: Efficient data-driven operations become critical. Social platforms offer a wealth of data about audiences that, when aggregated and made available at various levels of the media organization, allow more informed decision making whether it is for immediate editorial directions or longer-term strategic planning. Enhancements to the Dalet Galaxy platform make publishing to social channels easier and more intuitive, while keeping track of the outbound assets and pulling back all relevant data. Managing IMF at Scale: With these latest enhancements, Dalet Galaxy offers the right data model and set of tools to manage IMF packages in typical workflows including ingest of IMF, mapping of content, preview, packaging and distribution. Orchestrating Workflows Across the Media Enterprise Central to most implementations, the Dalet Workflow Engine gives facilities all the agility and flexibility they need to build consistent, efficient and agile supply chains that connect all contributing siloes across the enterprise. The engine orchestrates and automates a combination of user tasks and media services such as ingest, logging, editing, transcoding, QC, media packaging and distribution. The user-friendly Workflow Designer interface lets administrators intuitively model business processes by simply drag-and-dropping from a palette of stencils that span user tasks & notifications, media and metadata services, gateways, timeout and error management, and much more. This greatly simplifies preparing and delivering packages that require multiple languages, multiple graphic assets, multiple audio tracks, multiple subtitle tracks, and different delivery formats. Combined with Dalet Galaxy API, this provides an open framework that connects over 90 industry-leading vendors from storage & infrastructure technologies, to media services and post-production applications, to traffic and business platforms. Unified News Operations Dalet Unified News Operations is an agile and scalable solution that combines all the essential functions for the efficient modern newsroom. Based on the Dalet Galaxy platform, it offers a comprehensive suite of collaborative tools that help streamline the entire chain of operations from planning to ingest, logging, editing, graphics, show scheduling, studio automation, multi-platform distribution, and social platforms direct integration. The Dalet Workflow Engine allows users to design and orchestrate distribution workflows that require complex media packaging and automated distribution profiles. Multimedia Radio The new Dalet Galaxy-based Radio platform directly addresses the radio broadcast market's growing demand for solutions that help reach beyond the span of their transmitters to deliver the next generation radio experience. The comprehensive solution combines traditional robust and proven applications such as Dalet OnAir automation and Dalet Galaxy asset manager with latest generation tools for multimedia production and multi-platform distribution such as Dalet OneCut multitrack desktop editor, automated distribution to digital and social platforms, and connectors to new partner technologies such as multi-camera visual radio production including graphics.
