Dalet Transforms Transcode Workflow Orchestration
Together, Dalet Workflow Engine and Dalet AmberFin transcoding platform deliver a powerful yet simple system for orchestrating media processing and preparation workflows

Dalet Transforms Transcode Workflow Orchestration

Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, will be previewing a new approach to media workflow orchestration at NAB 2015 (booth SL4525). Available later this year, the Dalet Workflow Engine combined with Dalet AmberFin transcoding platform greatly improves the orchestration of media workflows by leveraging a highly intuitive Business Process Model & Notation (BPMN) 2.0-compliant workflow designer. As a result, users are able to quickly and easily create complex workflow chains with little or no prior experience. Deployed workflows can be monitored at any level of detail with graphical and textual reporting of workflow instances.

“While combining workflow orchestration with a transcode platform is not a new concept, and in fact, Dalet AmberFin already does this to an effect, the new workflow approach from Dalet takes it a few steps further by distancing users from the complexities of transcode to make the process of media workflows familiar to anyone with an IT background, meeting our industry’s growing demand for more approachable workflow tools,” comments Ben Davenport, director of marketing, Dalet. “By turning to the BPMN 2.0 standard, which is widely understood and used across any number of industries, we are able to bring a multitude of benefits to media processes, making them more understandable, shareable, future-proof and deployable, while BPMN skills learned in other markets are immediately transferable.”

BPMN provides a framework for designing and deploying workflows, enabling users to dynamically monitor workflow occurrences in detail, with activities being highlighted as media moves through the chain. This means that operators do not need to know or worry about a specific task; when the Dalet AmberFin transcode platform receives a work order, it starts a process that describes the “recipe” – the ingredients and actions required to make the technical outputs. Users need only be concerned about the trigger and the result.

In the workflow designer, users are presented with a clear and simple “palette” of events, activities, gateways and paths that use terms and graphics that are comfortably familiar to users with IT or media backgrounds. This common graphical language improves the communication and documentation of both the job requirements and the execution details.

Context-sensitive options and settings intuitively guide users through the process of joining workflow elements, with logical defaults and settings that make adding tasks such as “email supervisor” incredibly fast. Workflow “success” paths are complemented by advanced exception handling, ensuring the highest degrees of automation while retaining the freedom to insert human judgment processes.

All this is combined with the latest Dalet AmberFin developments in standards and frame rate conversion as well as international versioning and UHD capabilities, while leveraging all existing integrations with automated QC vendors and other tools.

Dalet AmberFin and Workflow Engine Named IABM Game Changer Awards Finalist 2015

The new combination of Dalet AmberFin and Workflow Engine is already gaining recognition at this year’s NAB Show, being honored as a finalist for the IABM Game Changer Awards 2015, shortlisted in the System Automation and Control category.

“It’s very exciting to receive accolades from IABM before even announcing the Dalet AmberFin combined with the Workflow Engine, being recognized as one of the leading products to be shown at NAB 2015,” states Bruce Devlin, chief media scientist, Dalet. “By clearly addressing industry trends, this solution is highly sustainable and likely to change the game for those of us in the business of transcode and workflow orchestration.”

The category winners of Game Changer Awards will be announced at the IABM reception at NAB Show on Tuesday, April 14 from 5:30 PM in the IABM Member Lounge (N115) at the LVCC. All shortlisted companies will be filmed by IABM TV during the Awards Reception, and coverage will be featured on the IABM website the following day.

Dalet Engages Hyper-Connected Audience with New Social Media Panel
IBC2017 will serve as the stage to unveil a new module of Dalet News Solutions, the Dalet Social Media Panel. Dalet has developed, within the Dalet Unified News Operations solution, a comprehensive social media framework that enables journalists to analyze, produce and deliver fast-paced news on social media platforms. The latest addition to this framework, the Dalet Social Media Panel, gives editorial teams a synthetic view of all their posts, including simple analytics to understand popularity of their posts in the blink of an eye, allowing journalists and news directors to better fine-tune and deliver content to targeted audiences, ultimately augmenting engagement. “While the ability to publish to social media platforms is done by many broadcast systems, it’s often done as an ad hoc to the system and disconnected from the rest of the workflow. This is where the Dalet Social Media Panel approach separates itself from the rest of the pack,” comments Kevin Savina, director of product strategy, Dalet. “The new Dalet Social Media Panel is a native module of the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform, and is part of a wider social media framework. Not only are stories published as posts, but all data available on the social platforms is continuously extracted and used to enrich the story asset. It’s a true 360-degree workflow that puts social at the core of the news flow, which best serves a hyper-connected audience.” Journalists, producers and assignment desk editors can access the Dalet Social Media Panel, right within their Dalet Galaxy workspace. Dynamic indicators such as number of views, likes and shares show how posted content is performing, while comments and threads allow journalists to detect new potential story angles. With data, tools and content at their fingertips, journalists can quickly evolve posts into deeper stories. Savina adds, “The converged Dalet social media framework is designed to facilitate story curation and distribution to viewing platforms such as web and traditional broadcast while simultaneously outputting updates back to the social media networks. It’s a story-centric model that allows teams to deliver content that meets the consumption habits and expectations of all audiences, whether they are consuming complete news stories on social or simply using it as a method of finding news to be read in full online or watched live on-air.” The look and feel of the Dalet Social Media Panel mimics the style of today’s social media platforms, making it a seamless transition for journalists to work with. To help manage volume and pace, Dalet Social Media Panel provides a central point for approving posts, as well as scheduling publish date and time. This keeps the social media news flow humming along smoothly. The analytical tools help both journalists and news directors view, at a glance, what stories are waning versus what topics are trending, aiding to make more informed decisions of what news stories and news angles need to be published next. Other complementary modules of the Dalet social media framework include: Twitter Harvester Journalists within Dalet can create filters on the topics they follow, for example, #SolarEclipse2017; the system then automatically collects any new tweets that contain those hashtags or keywords and imports them as a wire. Any user interested can subscribe and get notified when a new tweet with that hashtag comes in, giving journalists the ability to feel the pulse of social media within their Dalet workspace as news develops. Social media section built into the Dalet Story Editor While writing a story for television or radio, users can easily curate their script for social media publishing, including drag and drop of images and video into the social media section. Throughout the development of a story, journalists can create new sections of their story to update tweets and posts. Converged and easy editing for social Within the Dalet OneCut multimedia editor, users can easily re-package television content to make it ready for social posts, including CG on the timeline with burn-in using Dalet Cube, integrated voiceover and open captions – an increasingly important feature on social with the demand for silent videos. Simple and direct publishing With the click of a button, journalists can post content straight to their personal or their news organization’s social media account. The system automatically publishes to YouTube, Facebook and/or Twitter, or queues it for later post synchronized with the on-air playout. Fake news control To prevent fake news from going out, all social media posts can be vetted, so only approved content is posted. Journalists can then view and track the activity of their posts, and notate which posts have been vetted and cleared for publishing, right from within their Dalet workspace. Savina concludes, “Although the Dalet Social Media Panel is first being implemented within news organizations, Dalet clearly foresees it being used with other type of content and organizations – for instance, sports broadcasters and teams to publish highlights on social media, entertainment channels to push promos on social media, and more.” For more information about the new Dalet Social Media Panel, please visit: http://www.dalet.com/video-gallery/dalet-galaxy-social-media-workflows.

Delivered with Dalet Report Center, the solution offers critical business intelligence data specifically tailored for media operations, allowing management teams to measure performance throughout the chain and build data-driven strategies. Deeper Integration with Adobe Premiere Pro CC The critical connect point for post-production, the recently updated HTML5 Dalet Xtend panel connects Adobe® Premiere Pro® CC users to the Dalet Galaxy platform, providing a direct gateway to shared assets and facilitating greater collaboration with the rest of the users on the Dalet Galaxy platform – such as journalists, prep editors, sports producers and other production personnel. Editors can save projects or sequences as assets in Dalet Galaxy, and share them with other Adobe Premiere Pro editors connected to Dalet. New features and capabilities include support for multi-sequence export, locator inheritance, configurable metadata forms for exporting content and support for “while” scenarios when exporting from Adobe Premiere Pro. Video-Over-IP and Virtualizing Your I/O Server The Dalet Brio high-density I/O platform supports the latest IP standards adopted across the industry – SMPTE 2202-2, SMPTE 2202-6 and the soon-to-be-published SMPTE 2110.

The secondary site provides access to back-up content (video, audio, scripts, rundowns, etc.) replicated from the primary platform – from a few hours up to days or weeks of content, depending on capacity and replication policies. Available within minutes, all operation-critical workflows defined by the customer’s contingency plan will be switched on. The pay-as-you-go and on-demand infrastructure models of the cloud require minimal upfront investment compared to classic plans that require large capital investment. To manage and package IMF content at scale, the need for a powerful media asset management (MAM) with integrated Workflow Engine such as Dalet Galaxy becomes critical. The enhanced Dalet Galaxy platform offers a sophisticated set of tools to manage mass IMF packaging at the production, distribution and contribution points of a media business. The comprehensive workflow covers the full range of services for IMF package creation, from importing IMF packages natively into the MAM, to visualizing IMF structures and components with Dalet Context Maps, to building versions and supplemental packages with Dalet Track Stack and Version Editor, and eventually wrapping the compositions for distribution using a connector to an IMF-compliant transcode farm such as Dalet AmberFin. The recently updated HTML-5 Dalet Xtend panel connects Adobe® Premiere Pro® CC users to the Dalet Galaxy MAM, 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. New features and capabilities include 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.

Dalet Galaxy Orchestrates Large-Scale IMF Operations
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations, is demonstrating its comprehensive IMF workflow powered by Dalet Galaxy at NAB 2017 on booth SL6210. The Interoperable Mastering Format (IMF) is designed to simplify and standardize the world of multi-platform, multi-lingual, multi-resolution delivery. Devised by the industry and ratified by SMPTE, IMF is an emerging standardized mastering format for facilities required to distribute many profiles and versions with reliable interoperability. To manage and package IMF content at scale, the need for a powerful media asset management (MAM) and orchestration solution such as Dalet Galaxy becomes critical. “Today, IMF packages are becoming simpler to create and interchange, but the lack of a fixed file or folder naming scheme is making management of IMF - especially with tens and hundreds of supplemental packages per title - more complex,” explains Bruce Devlin, Dalet chief media scientist. “Implementing a MAM and orchestration platform such as Dalet Galaxy will allow you to scale and industrialize your operation and broker the many IMF workflows with greater ease and accuracy, and at a much lower cost of production.” Readers can visit www.dalet.com/white-papers-page to download a white paper on scaling IMF operations. Dalet has been evolving IMF workflow capability within its technology platforms since 2013. A testament to the veracity and robustness of the solution is recent Netflix compliance approval awarded to the Dalet AmberFin transcoding platform. This means that producers and facilities needing to create IMF packages for their Netflix targeted content can use Dalet IMF technology to get the job done. Dalet Galaxy IMF Workflow The Dalet Galaxy MAM and Orchestration engine offers a sophisticated set of tools to manage IMF packages at the production, distribution and contribution parts of media business, from importing IMF packages natively into the MAM, to visualizing IMF structures and components with Dalet Context Maps, to building versions and supplemental packages with Dalet Track Stack and Version Editor, and eventually wrapping the compositions for distribution using a connector to an IMF-compliant transcode farm such as Dalet AmberFin. Highlights of the Dalet Galaxy IMF Workflow include: Editing metadata of any of the assets (title, media assets, CPL (version), etc.) Viewing the relationship between the IMF assets Searching the system for any of the assets against any of the specified imported metadata from the CPL XML data and technical metadata from the media files Performing the delivery of any CPL in a title as an IMP Maintaining output distribution profiles per client along with unique assets for that distribution (e.g., watermarked assets) Removing the painful management of enforced folder naming conventions and allowing asset and title names to become useful, trackable values.

IBC2016: Dalet Unleashes the Power of Media Workflow Evolution
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, will be demonstrating its advanced media management and workflow solutions at the 2016 IBC Show (stand 8.B77), taking place this September at the RAIConvention Centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from September 9 through 13. Attendees can book a private demonstration or workflow consultation with a Dalet expert to learn how enhancements to the Dalet Galaxy, Brio and AmberFin platforms can help them better create, manage and distribute content. “Putting the right tools and technologies in front of users enables them to better respond to the changing content consumption habits of their respective audiences,” comments Ben Davenport, director of marketing, Dalet. “Dalet helps customers navigate and respond to these evolving behaviors by implementing future-proof media infrastructures and scalable workflows that support the content production and distribution demands of complex workflows such as News and Sports today, tomorrow and well into the future. Whilst at the same time, important standards like IMF and technologies such as cloud can be fully exploited by customers right now with Dalet Galaxy and AmberFin to simplify program prep and content exchange.” Tools for Today’s News Workflows Demonstrating effective solutions for today’s end-to-end news production and distribution workflows, Dalet offers embedded as well as federated tools to plan, collect, research, write, edit and distribute text, audio and video to television, radio, web and social media. With content and production for all outlets converging and social media becoming the go-to platform for news consumption, content owners must find ways to streamline news production for multi-platform distribution. Enhancements to Dalet Galaxy user interfaces, such as an intuitive social media GUI that looks and acts more like a social media publishing platform, make publishing to social an easy and intuitive newsroom operation, allowing broadcasters to better respond to and manage new consumer habits. Meeting radio broadcasters’ growing demand for cost-efficient, visual radio workflows, Dalet is showcasing integration with products like NewTek TriCaster and VidiGo multi-camera production systems. Driven by Dalet Galaxy, radio broadcasters can easily incorporate graphics such as lower-thirds and branding to enhance OTT distribution and maximize sponsorship opportunities, respectively, all while maintaining important graphics metadata that make radio assets more valuable. Simplifying Program Preparation & Mastering No longer do facilities have to manually create different versions of a program or movie for each individual market. With tools that take advantage of industry standards, Dalet is offering a far simpler process for global distribution of content, and the Dalet Workflow Engine, available both in Dalet Galaxy and Dalet AmberFin platforms, is reinventing the way customers can implement these types of workflows. Both platforms support IMF, an industry format that serves as a model to assist with and enhance program preparation and mastering. Visitors to the stand can see first-hand how the Dalet AmberFin media orchestration platform efficiently bundles media assets into an IMF, which can then be imported by Dalet Galaxy for effortless distribution. Dalet AmberFin can also generate metadata-rich IMF bundles authored with user-focused media-aware tools such as those found in Dalet Galaxy. Elevating Your Workflow to the Cloud At IBC2015, Dalet announced Dalet xN, the company’s long-term strategy for the ever-evolving content supply chain. Reimagining the media enterprise, Dalet xN extends and augments cloud and hybrid environments to provide content owners with a truly dynamic and flexible business infrastructure. This year at IBC2016, attendees can experience first-hand brand new Dalet xN marketplace apps that aid in national video exchange and delivery, as well as enterprise-wide cloud-enabled workflows.

Dalet Brio Provides Smarter Video I/O
Dalet Digital Media Systems is demonstrating at NAB 2016 (booth SL3905) the smart I/O operations and flexible SDI/IP-based capabilities that have drawn technically savvy broadcasters from around the world to its intelligent Dalet Brio platform. In a market that is moving increasingly away from proprietary hardware-based video servers towards software-based solutions that focus on the task of managing the conversion of streams-to-files and files-to-streams, the convenient web-based administration with advanced tools for ingest, logging and studio production make Dalet Brio the ideal solution for managing complex multi-channel recordings, conversions and multiplatform playout scenarios. “With the move to virtualized infrastructure, I/O video servers that can take advantage of the new technology opportunities and manage streams-to-files and files-to-streams are part of the strategic conversation,” states Matthieu Fasani, Dalet Brio product manager, Dalet. “Today, Dalet customers utilizing Brio not only benefit from the highly convenient web-based administration and extensive codec and format support, but they are also ensured that their I/O operations are IP and cloud ready, giving them the best of all worlds.” Taming the Wild Advanced media organizations require an I/O solution that can adapt to new production infrastructures and manage content recordings, conversions and playout to/from a number of devices for highly dynamic events, from the U.S. Primaries to opening day for the New York Yankees. The Dalet Brio suite of applications – Multicam Manager, Logger and Media Navigator – are purpose-built tools that allow broadcasters to expand the capabilities of the I/O Brio server to include multi-camera control, comprehensive logging, and studio production ingest and playout. “Dalet Brio allows customers to improve the way they manage the entire I/O operation,” comments Fasani. “For example, the metadata logging capabilities of Dalet Logger significantly enrich content recorded into any MAM, PAM or CMS system, which in turn optimizes productions. Same for content recorded to the cloud. Content and logs become available to anyone around the globe, opening up opportunities for new workflows and revenue streams.” Tried and True Investment That Has Been Put to the Test Globally Dalet Brio is an integral part of any media workflow, whether as a standalone product, integrated with third party platforms, or as part of the Dalet Galaxy enterprise-wide solution.

Achieving Economies of Scale Serving as the foundation for many enterprise production and post operations, Dalet Galaxy is the underlying MAM platform that facilitates the fluid exchange of mass content from ingest to archive. The single solution orchestrates multiple workflows including production, program and archives, providing easy-to-use production tools and advanced metadata-driven automation to efficiently manage content. Mauro Panella, VP of Broadcast Operations – Italy, Germany & UK at Fox Networks Group, explains the benefits of moving Fox production to Dalet Galaxy, “With the new (Dalet Galaxy) infrastructure, we were capable of drastically increasing the amount of material processed per operator by at least 25%, reducing fault and mistakes related to workflow and/or manual operations. Thanks to the integrations and customizations deployed, only minimum amount of training was required and users were up to speed in few weeks.” Deploying Agile Infrastructure With the maturity of the platform, the first customers are going into production with Dalet Galaxy systems fully running on cloud infrastructure leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS). “On the confidence of Dalet Galaxy, customers can take the next steps in building truly dynamic virtualized and cloud-based environments,” notes Savina. “Clippn is one of the first Dalet Galaxy customers to fully exploit the technical and business benefits of cloud-based operations. Working in partnership with Dalet and Amazon, Clippn has deployed an enterprise cloud-based media preparation and distribution ecosystem. The agile Dalet Galaxy infrastructure allows them to respond to resource needs and dynamically scale workflows at will. This type of flexibility gives them the ability to react quickly to changing environments and interact more efficiently with suppliers, users and clients optimizing their entire business operations.” NAB 2016 attendees can book a private demonstration or workflow consultation with a Dalet expert to learn more about Dalet Galaxy.

Dalet Announces Essential Business Continuity Solutions
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, will introduce at the NAB 2017 exhibition (booth SL6210) a new line of solutions for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, designed to enable existing Dalet customers to continue their operations in the event of planned maintenance or disaster. The Dalet Business Continuity solution can be available within minutes, providing access to an independent back-up production system, hosting selected content from their primary Dalet platform. “Though disasters and cyber attacks are a fact of life for any media organization and are particularly acute in broadcast, the majority of our customers doesn’t have a clear plan to address this,” states Kevin Savina, director of product strategy, Dalet. “For decades, conventional DR site architectures have been centered on the physical duplication of infrastructures, making it a costly option. The new line of solutions leverage recent features of the Dalet Galaxy platform to manage smart replication of assets and processes across sites, as well as the provisioning and automation of dynamic infrastructures on one hand, and the flexibility and elasticity of public clouds and virtual infrastructures on the other hand. The combination of those technology enhancements redefines completely the economics of a Business Continuity plan for our customers.” Every broadcaster must ensure a failsafe guarantee of service in the event of a downtime of all or part of their primary production and distribution system, should it be an unforeseen event, such as a natural disaster, a power failure or a cyber attack, or a scheduled intervention, such as a full system upgrade. Signal blackouts mean loss of audience, loss of advertising revenue and potentially irrevocable loss of business. Dalet Business Continuity offers a range of solutions, based on a secondary site, which can be hosted in an environment of the customer’s choice including on-premise, hosted in a private cloud or in a public cloud such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. It is architected as a smaller-scale system enabling customers to continue their operations with a percentage of their user base and set of functionality. The secondary site provides access to back-up content (video, audio, scripts, rundowns, etc.) replicated from the primary platform – from a few hours up to days or weeks of content, depending on capacity and replication policies. Available within minutes, all operation-critical workflows defined by the customer’s contingency plan will be switched on. They replicate the processes and configurations of the production environment. In the case of a news production operation platform for instance, the DR solution can include live news agency content, the ability to continue to create stories, build rundowns and connect craft editors; digital publishing to selected web and social media platforms, as well as on-air playout facilitated either by IP streaming or by a secondary broadcast center with playout and up-linking capability connected to the DR system. The pay-as-you-go and on-demand infrastructure models of the cloud make it particularly interesting for broadcasters. As long as the DR site is dormant, customers only need to pay for capacity – storage and a few instances - to back up the critical data. When the DR needs to be turned into production processing, instances get spun up and billed. This is a drastic economic change compared to classic plans requiring heavy capital investment and operations to acquire and maintain banks of servers.
