Australian Broadcaster SBS Inks Expansion Deal with Dalet
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced that Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) is significantly expanding the portion of its media operations powered by the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform. The new implementation will facilitate production and distribution of news, sports, radio programs in multiple languages and music content across the broadcaster’s TV, radio and digital platforms. The new deployment will bolster SBS’s production capability prior to the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Building on the successful integration of dozens of systems and automation of several program management workflows under a unified Dalet Galaxy environment, the expanded installation will now encompass news and sports production as well as the full radio automation for SBS music channels. This will deliver production content to three TV channels, eight radio channels (music and talk show), the SBS website and online apps. SBS’s radio programming is produced in more than 70 languages, making it the most linguistically diverse broadcaster globally. In addition to the 2018 FIFA Football World Cup, the production of other sporting events that will be facilitated by the new integration includes tier-one events such as the Tour de France and English Premiere League. SBS’s Chief Technology Officer, Noel Leslie, said, “Following the first phase of our strategic move to streamline our programming content under the management of a single MAM platform, we embarked on phase two in full confidence of our partnership with Dalet. SBS and Dalet teams have worked collaboratively on the software commissioning and the system integration for this project. Change management is also extremely important to us at SBS, and we have made it core to our strategy to involve key stakeholders across the chain and across our geographically spread operation right from the start of the process.” The system will be deployed across four sites including SBS headquarters in Sydney, connected production operation in Melbourne, a third system in Canberra, and a Business Continuity (BC) / Disaster Recovery (DR) site also in Sydney. Specifically, Dalet will unify content preparation, production and ingest at two TV studios and eight radio studios in Sydney and an additional eight radio studios in Melbourne, bringing together up to 300 simultaneous users working with the system. Video ingest for 50 channels spread across the country, alongside multiple channels of audio ingest, will be centrally managed under the control of Dalet. The Dalet AmberFin media processing platform will assist with transcoding as required. Dalet On-the-Go will also be available to connect journalists in the field directly to the central Dalet Galaxy platform. Dalet OneCut is provided for desktop editing and remote editing at the Canberra studios. Industry-standard, BPMN 2.0-compliant Dalet Workflow Engine automates multi-platform publishing, including social media workflows, as well as archiving operations. “There are many tangible benefits SBS will receive by further standardizing production under one unified environment; lower TCO, optimized support and training costs, fewer systems to integrate – all thanks to the powerful agility and extensibility of the Dalet Galaxy platform,” said Raoul Cospen, Dalet Product Manager. “Using the full scope of the Dalet platform, SBS is able to unite and streamline its content collaboration across geographically diverse SBS departments, and orchestrate the program acquisition, preparation and distribution workflows.” The Dalet Galaxy open APIs are used for a variety of interfaces with third parties including music scheduling system Power Gold and Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC for craft editing across the three production sites, and Opta Sports data feeds. Integrations with Dell EMC® Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS™) provide SBS teams with a single user interface to easily access and manage content. Further integrations facilitated by Dalet include Ross Overdrive in SBS’s automated production studio, Ross Expression for graphics and content management system Drupal. Integrations with social media networks Facebook, Twitter and YouTube make this installation a complete end-to-end solution for SBS to address effectively their audiences across all available platforms. Noel Leslie (Chief Technology Officer at SBS), Stephane Schlayen (COO at Dalet), Raoul Cospen (Product Manager at Dalet) and Darren Farnham (Manager at SBS) About SBS As Australia’s multicultural broadcaster, SBS holds a unique place in the Australian media landscape, inspiring all Australians to explore, appreciate and celebrate our diverse world and in doing so, contributes to a cohesive society.

TV Globo Puts Dalet Media Life at Center of its Entertainment Production
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, has announced that TV Globo, the world's second-largest commercial TV network by annual revenue, is placing Dalet Media Life, based on the award-winning Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) platform, at the heart of its entertainment archive. The world's leading producer of telenovelas (soap operas) is deploying an end-to-end archiving and content preparation workflow utilizing all three Dalet platforms: Dalet Brio for high-density ingest and Dalet AmberFin high-quality transcoding, all under the control of Dalet Galaxy enterprise MAM to enable the manipulation of digital files for archive purposes for all entertainment content (including telenovelas) produced at the network's Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo hubs. The Dalet installation will also enable the distribution of content to internal and external users. “We produce a vast amount of content each year, including telenovelas and promos, and wanted a means of increasing the efficiency and enhancing the production values of our operations with a comprehensive file-based workflow from ingest through to archive,” explains Thiago Abreu, project manager at TV Globo. “The solution had to work effortlessly with our legacy systems, prove itself extensible to accommodate our rising production and distribution demands, and it had to promote collaborative workflows by opening up our production silos. We are confident, along with Sony, our primary partner on this major project, that we have found the answer in Dalet.” Ranked as one of the biggest media companies in the world, TV Globo produces around 2,400 hours of entertainment annually and reaches 99.5% of the Brazilian population through its network of 122 owned and affiliate TV stations. The network's international operations include seven pay-per-view TV channels and a production and distribution division that distributes domestic sports and entertainment content to more than 190 countries around the world. The organization's studio production base is located in Jacarepaguá, Rio de Janeiro, and known locally as Projac. The solution at Projac is systems integrated by Sony Professional Services and architected to extend TV Globo's file-based workflow from ingest into archive. Sony selected the comprehensive Dalet Media Life solution, which includes a broadcast-specific Business Process Management workflow engine, advanced production and media preparation tools, and a single and centralized content repository for housing multimedia content. The complete solution also includes Dalet Brio for ingest acquisition and QC playback as well as Dalet AmberFin for transcoding. The Dalet platforms interlock with a number of industry-standard, third-party tools to underpin production end-to-end. These include integration with Avid Interplay and Avid Symphony for production, with Tektronix Cerify for file-based QC review, and with Front Porch DIVA and Sony’s Optical Disc Archive System. “This is Dalet's first major deal in Brazil and is hugely significant given TV Globo's superlative reputation for content production and distribution, not only in South America, but globally,” says Julien Decaix, general manager, Americas, Dalet. “File-based workflow at the broadcaster's entertainment production headquarters was previously only within an Avid environment, but in alliance with Sony and TV Globo, we are able to manage all digital files and all associated metadata as well as legacy tape content, on ingest and throughout the asset's entire lifecycle, including export for all internal and international distribution and onwards to the Sony Optical Disk Archive. This new workflow, based on Dalet's business solution encompassing all three main platforms, embraces TV Globo's fast-paced production environment, operations and business, and streamlines the amount of work needed by the broadcaster's prolific production division day-to-day.” Content is ingested directly into the Dalet Galaxy content catalog and automatically transcoded by Dalet AmberFin nodes during ingest from the Sony SStP format to XDCAM HD 50. Web-based search and browse of material is enabled by Dalet Webspace clients while, thanks to a set of Dalet Xtend modules, media can be browsed, previewed and exchanged smoothly to and from Avid Interplay. Dalet solutions and products are designed form the ground up around open-IT standards, enabling TV Globo to develop integration with Dalet using the SOAP Dalet API. This enables media to be migrated fluidly from TV Globo's existing MAM database.
