Harmonic Inc. today announced that its Rhozet™ Carbon Coder™ video transcoding solution has been selected by Dalet for integration with the full range of Dalet asset management and broadcast solutions. Dalet’s file-based solutions offer end-to-end digital workflows—from ingest to production, editing, scheduling, transmission, archiving and content distribution. The Dalet – Rhozet integration is deployed at The Press Association, the national news agency for the United Kingdom and Ireland, for efficient production and management of video packages which are distributed to affiliates via The Press Association’s web portal.
Video journalists in the field edit video using their laptops and upload finished packages to headquarters using a customized store-and-forward video hub application developed using Rhozet video transcoding technology. Since burdensome transcoding and publishing functions are handled behind-the-scenes, journalists can focus their attention on content rather than on repetitive tasks.
“We’re impressed with the Rhozet transcoding capabilities and the ease in which we have been able to integrate these capabilities with the Dalet core engine to meet the requirements of our customers,” said Kevin Savina, Director of Product Management at Dalet.
“Dalet’s proven technology is used by major broadcasters and content providers to facilitate the management of video assets,” said David Trescot, Vice President of the Rhozet Business Unit at Harmonic Inc. “Carbon Coder transcoding technology expands their offering by providing a significant increase in workflow efficiencies for these customers.”
Harmonic’s Rhozet Carbon Coder is a universal transcoding application that facilitates the transfer of media between a variety of platforms, including acquisition, editing, playout, archive, the Internet and mobile devices. Carbon Coder can run as a stand-alone application or as part of a multi-node, fully-automated rendering farm. Carbon Coder provides high-performance, scalable and cost-effective transcoding for a broad range of business environments, from specialized studios to enterprise-scale installations.
