DR Deploys Dalet Enterprise Edition Across Broadcast Operations

DR Deploys Dalet Enterprise Edition

DR the public service broadcaster of Denmark has successfully deployed Dalet Enterprise Edition to power its newsroom operations. The system is running in twelve different sites, including all of DR’s regional locations and the new broadcast headquarters in Copenhagen. Its implementation, which required multiple, complex integrations with graphics, broadcast and customized production systems, was carefully planned and executed over a 3-year period.

This was a very big project with a lot of different workflows,” comments Jan Fredholm, the DR Resource Manager who is responsible for the Dalet systems. “It was critical to find a newsroom computer system that was flexible enough to simultaneously handle multiple channel operations. And because we have many customized systems, we needed seamless integrations and a high level of interoperability to ensure consistent and efficient workflows. The integration expertise of the Dalet Professional Services team and integrator SGI/Silex helped achieve our goals.”

“The functionality and scalability of Dalet Enterprise Edition coupled with the powerful DaletPlus metadata and workflow engine provide an incomparable newsroom solution,” comments Chris Wright, General Manager, Dalet UK. “The DR installation is an excellent example of the flexibility of Dalet Enterprise Edition and it also reflects the technical capabilities of the Dalet Professional Services team. Working closely with DR and Silex, they applied their global experience and engineering skills to deliver the mission-critical integrations needed for a successful project.”

The Dalet Enterprise Edition implementation at DR was carefully staged, beginning with one, then all of the regional radio operations which were already using Dalet Radio solutions for audio production and radio broadcasting. The project progressed to the principal radio and television networks, totaling more than two thousand client workstations and five distinct databases connected together serving the various DR sites. At DR, Dalet Enterprise Edition provides a comprehensive, editorially driven workflow for news operations including multi-language wire ingest, scripting, story templates, powerful assignment and planning tools, multi-level rundown support with story status, advanced timing management and on air show time tracking. Based on tightly controlled rights and permissions, Dalet also simplified the ability to control and share content exchanges among different operations. The show-tracking and metadata management capabilities in Dalet Enterprise Edition also enable DR to automate the publication of video news content to their websites, greatly extending their editorial reach.

Dalet supports a long list of industry standard protocols such as MOS, XML and SOAP to provide extensive support for graphics, still stores and prompters, as well as purpose-built integrations that provide functionalities that go beyond the scope of traditional protocols. This brings a lot more flexibility and power when it comes to integrate systems such as DR’s customized Media Archive which is used to manage the television channels’ video production workflows.

Dalet Brings Social Media Distribution and Business Intelligence to the Core of Metro TV 24/7 News Operation
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, today announced that existing customer Metro TV upgraded their news operations to the Dalet Galaxy platform. In addition to moving the production to high-definition, the solution unifies the entire operations of the Jakarta-based, 24/7 news broadcaster, with full consistency and continuity from content acquisition and production, all the way down to multi-platform distribution and archiving. The new workflow includes one-click social media publishing; access to comprehensive business intelligence reporting metrics, which measure both the performance of the facility and crews, as well as the actual media consumption by the target audience across traditional and non-traditional channels such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube; and the latest version of the Dalet Newsroom Computer System (NRCS), which features some of the industry’s most advanced capabilities. “This upgrade in operations to Dalet Galaxy is a significant step forward for Metro TV. In addition to moving to HD and improving our newsroom workflow with the new studios and NRCS, we can now realize our goals for social media distribution in a smarter and much more efficient way,” comments Mr. Mirdal Akib, CTO of Metro TV. “With Dalet Galaxy’s business intelligence reporting tools, we can better monitor our operation, making more informed decisions and tracking our production costs with better accuracy.” The Metro TV installation features the full breadth and depth of the Dalet newsroom tools and technology offerings, which includes Dalet Galaxy native NRCS modules, Dalet WebSpace and Dalet On-the-Go for remote news production and team collaboration, Dalet OneCut multimedia desktop editor and Dalet Xtend for seamless integration of Adobe Premiere Pro in the news production chain; and foremost the brand new Dalet Social Media panel for native social media curation and distribution.

Euronews Selects Dalet to Power Multilingual News Outlet
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, today announced that Euronews has signed a contract for a Dalet news solution to facilitate production and playout of its linear and non-linear products. Operating as one channel that broadcasts in 13 languages, Euronews will use Dalet to meet the needs of the Euronews' group development. The sizeable installation will support 200 simultaneous users and feature all three Dalet technology platforms – Dalet Galaxy (media logistics/asset management), Dalet AmberFin (media orchestration/processing) and Dalet Brio (I/O environment) across several sites. “Today, we have various components that are ‘glued’ together using our own internal tools. It is not efficient in terms of dealing with the various languages, supporting special productions and tracking important asset metadata. It also does not support the transformation of our workflows,” comments François Schmitt, COO, Euronews. “Dalet is providing an agile, cohesive system that bends with the ebb and flow of our newsroom needs. The unified platform provides centralized access to content, which is critical for each language to cross leverage for their own news purpose. Equally as important, the flow of content will be seamless and ubiquitous from acquisition to distribution to archive, making the Euronews operations much more efficient.” Euronews's sister channel, Africanews recently installed a Dalet solution for their news operations, achieving a fluid operation that gives Euronews the confidence to choose Dalet technical capabilities and experience in news workflows. Dalet beat out industry brands Quantel and Avid to win the deal. “Dalet pioneered the integrated newsroom system almost a decade ago and is able to offer a very advanced, yet mature platform with skilled technologists who have vast experience in deploying systems both small and large,” comments Stephane Schlayen, COO, Dalet. “Our Galaxy platform enables customers to unify the traditional newsroom siloes of NRCS, NPS (News Production Systems) and MAM delivering a solid foundation for the business of modern news.” Once deployed, the unified production will offer federated tools standardizing ingest, logging editing, graphics, planning and distribution across all Euronews' products, with the Dalet Workflow Engine to automate and orchestrate complex workflows and data migrations. Dalet APIs will integrate the wide-range of in-house tools including the custom-built CMS. The flexible architecture combined with centralized content repository will allow Euronews to better manage the multi-site workflows planned for four different offices (Lyon, Brussels, Athens and Budapest). Schmitt adds, “Not only did we need better integration across our facility, we needed a way to connect our independent journalists out in the field to what was happening in the newsroom. Dalet WebSpace brings them into our news operations, offering all the necessary tools and access to the central repository and archives to build their own story from anywhere in the world.” Other must-have capabilities included Dalet OneCut with local proxy editing, Dalet Cube burn-in graphics control, and the ability to do voiceovers with Dalet WebSpace in the field.

Dalet Supplies Complete Closed Captioning Workflow For CPAC
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, has supplied and integrated an end-to-end workflow for CPAC’s (Cable Public Affairs Channel) English and French closed captioning. The solution combines the strength of Dalet AmberFin and Dalet Galaxy to provide an advanced automated workflow that maintains genealogy and captioning data for the 24/7 operation. Based in Ottawa, CPAC is Canada’s only privately-owned, not-for-profit, bilingual television service providing a commercial-free window on Parliament, politics and public affairs. Through its unique style of balanced, long-form coverage of the people, politics and events shaping public policy, CPAC facilitates and fosters participation in the Canadian democratic process. CPAC is delivered by cable, satellite and wireless distributors to more than 11 million homes in Canada and worldwide via 24/7 web streaming on the CPAC TV 2 GO mobile app and the www.cpac.ca website. The organization ingests up to 80 hours of new content daily and has made over 30,000 hours of archived content available on these digital platforms. “We urgently needed a closed captioning solution that could manage a variety of content from several different types of production workflows: news and magazine-style shows, live and studio production, and long-form programming. For each of these workflows we needed to be able to manage, and more importantly maintain caption data, especially after editing has been completed or the content is passing through another system,” says Eitan Weisz, senior manager of broadcast operations, CPAC. “Those are all facets that we felt Dalet could deliver for us in one package.” The solution devised by Dalet in concert with CPAC deploys Dalet AmberFin as an advanced media and processing platform for insertion and extraction of caption data, leveraging the existing Dalet Media Asset Management (MAM) deployment to manage transformation and distribution in an end-to-end media workflow with a key emphasis on maintaining captions as metadata. During live shows or events, CPAC content is transcribed by operators using keyboard or stenography methods to generate live captions. Live feeds with captions are ingested into Harmonic and Dalet Brio video servers and written to an MXF file including a standard SMPTE ST436 data track. For pre-produced content, a proxy file is sent to an external captioning house for transcribing and generation of a separate caption file. Where the Dalet MAM detects valid ST436 data, Dalet AmberFin automatically extracts the caption information to a standard SCC caption file, associated with the relevant video file in the MAM. Also automatically generated is TTML (Timed Text Markup Language), a standardised XML structure that represents all the captioning information as time-coded metadata that can easily be catalogued, searched and modified. “The TTML pivot format is vital. Instead of keeping the information at file level, we expose it as timed metadata to the user so that they can directly view and search it as well as perform basic editing and correction of the caption information,” explains Dalet Sales Director Frederic Roux. “CPAC has rich automated metadata created in the Dalet system and tagged to all its content through this captioning process.” In the other production scenario at CPAC, when an SCC file is received from the captioning house, Dalet will instantly match it with the video file and then perform the same workflow: transforming the SCC file into searchable, viewable, useable data. “A common and expensive error in closed captioning workflows is the risk of losing captioning data during the production process,” explains Roux. “Editing can destroy the captioning information at file level and require the user to recapture or recreate the original material, which is time-consuming and costly.” Retaining caption data during the production process is integral to the Dalet end-to-end workflow. As Dalet maintains the genealogy of all produced content, the Dalet MAM automatically associates the corresponding caption metadata from the various pieces of production content to the final package created by the NLE. The final new asset then inherits the captions of the original material. Distribution is also managed by Dalet at CPAC. For linear playout, Dalet uses the metadata caption information or the SCC file with associated video to re-embed the captions in the media file within the ST436 data track. Options exist for managing the captioning separately as a side car file. Should there not be an SCC file, Dalet will automatically regenerate it based on the timed text metadata. For distribution to VOD, Web or mobile platforms, the text will be rendered automatically into a TTML file, the most suitable web format. “With this automated system we can prepare a video file for broadcast and for all non-linear distribution complete with captioning information in both French and English languages and in full confidence that metadata will be preserved,” says Weisz. The closed-caption system is the latest evolution of CPAC’s relationship with Dalet dating back to 2009. The partnership began when CPAC began digitizing its legacy tape content and selected Dalet as a front end MAM to catalogue its new online archive. A year later, CPAC and Dalet built a full MAM workflow to manage and control the client’s long-form programming all the way to air. The next step, in 2011, was to design, install and execute a newsroom computer system for all CPAC’s news output based on the comprehensive set of Dalet tools for news production. “The longstanding relationship we have enjoyed with CPAC is a testimony not only to the confidence they have in our technologies and services, but also to the unique way in which Dalet can grow with a customer as its needs change and grow,” says Roux. “We congratulate CPAC on its successful mission to date and look forward to many years of close partnership together.” About Dalet Digital Media Systems Dalet software-based solutions enable media organizations to create, manage and distribute content faster and more efficiently, fully maximizing the value of assets.

Australian Public Broadcaster SBS Streamlines Media Operation on Dalet Galaxy
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, has announced that Australia's Special Broadcasting Service Corporation (SBS) is centralizing its media operations on the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) platform. The vision will provide a unified infrastructure to facilitate greater content collaboration across all SBS departments, and orchestrate the program acquisition, preparation and distribution workflows under a single system. Noel Leslie, Chief Technology Officer for SBS said, “SBS made a strategic decision to bring our programming content under the management of a single MAM platform. The integrated solution consolidates a number of our existing systems, unifying assets. This will allow for greater collaboration across SBS, and make it easier for us to store, access and share our content, enabling us to do what we do best – telling important diverse stories. We were also looking for a more cost-efficient approach to preparation and distribution that will positively benefit the financial bottom line. We chose to work with Dalet to achieve this in what we are confident will be the beginning of a long term partnership.” In total, SBS will implement dozens of different workflows and seamlessly integrate 10 different systems with Dalet. The new streamlined architecture will bring SBS’s vast archives into the production workflow and provide embedded tools to conduct program preparation as well as emerging "new media" workflows from a single system. Thanks to the new Dalet Workflow Engine, task-based and complex processes such as assignments, escalation protocols and error management can be fully automated, orchestrating content flow from the moment it is received to its final destination in multiple languages and formats, with metadata intact. Key features like Dalet Work Orders track the progress of the work order in its entirety and provide employees access to real-time status data that serves both SBS technical and business decision needs. “The sheer power and extensibility of the Dalet Galaxy MAM enterprise class platform to address multiple integrations and automate for media organizations is the key to SBS's decision to work with us on this significant project,” said Raoul Cospen, General Manager, Dalet Singapore. “Using the Dalet Galaxy platform, SBS was able to unify its infrastructure and now, with fewer components to juggle, decrease training efforts. This has the immediate effect of lowering total cost of ownership and ensuring that the return on investment has increased.” The Dalet Galaxy MAM will take over program management and multi-platform publishing with Ingest, QC and Playout provided by Deluxe Australia as part of their managed services agreement with SBS. Dalet will also integrate with IBMS sales and traffic software from SintecMedia, Adobe Premiere NLEs for craft editing, Front Porch Diva for archive and other in-house systems to provide SBS teams with a single user interface to easily access and manage content. About SBS With a background as Australia’s multicultural broadcaster, SBS holds a unique place in the Australian media landscape. As described in the SBS Charter, SBS’s principal function is to provide multilingual, multicultural and Indigenous radio, television and digital media services that inform, educate and entertain all Australians, reflecting Australia’s diverse society. SBS carries out this function through an ever-increasing number of distribution platforms including free-to-air television channels, subscription television, analogue and digital radio, online, and via mobile devices and apps. SBS inspires all Australians to explore, appreciate and celebrate our diverse world, and in doing so contributes to a cohesive society. For more information visit www.sbs.com.au.

Dalet Galaxy MAM Powers Metadata Evolution for Win Sports
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, announced today that Win Sports, a leading Colombian sports channel, has selected the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) platform to manage its entire program preparation, production and archive workflows. The new installation also includes the Dalet AmberFin high-quality media processing platform and Dalet Brio video servers to help migrate the company's legacy content into the Dalet Galaxy media catalogue, providing an infrastructure that revitalizes control over the channel's assets. “Our starting point was to improve workflow efficiencies particularly around using archived material, but what we discovered working with Dalet, is a MAM that has shifted our whole perspective on the way we produce programs,” says William Albarracin, director of technology, Win Sports. “For example, with new metadata our journalists or producers can now search and access content themselves and ascertain rights information with a flexibility, speed and accuracy that was simply not possible before. Our ability to manage the status of projects, for approval or review, is also heightened plus we can better optimize content in our library, by rejecting or permitting material, because we have full control over what goes in. We already knew that Dalet Galaxy was a market leading MAM, but working in partnership with Dalet has enabled us to dig deep into its capabilities and we look forward to exploiting new tools and implementations as we progress our business.” With the aim of improving workflow efficiencies and restoring archived tape assets to viability, Win Sports required a MAM implementation to support, facilitate and integrate its news, program production and archive workflows. A critical aspect of the company's strategy was to search and retrieve archived content to enrich live broadcasts. Embedded Dalet MAM tools digitalize and capture archived assets and associated metadata into a centralized media repository, facilitating content access and re-purposing capabilities station-wide. “Win Sports was looking for a media asset management platform to take the heavy lifting out of its transition to file-based workflows and we are proud that it has found the solution in partnership with Dalet,” says Julien Decaix, general manager, Dalet Americas. “A project of this scale requires steep confidence with enterprise deployment, and Dalet has earned this type of experience over the past decade. Deployed in under four months, Dalet Galaxy MAM automated all the various workflows Win Sports needed in order to produce content and prepare programs in a growing number of formats while giving them a series of content management tools that will continue to refresh their production pipeline for many years.” Dalet Galaxy seamlessly connects Avid Media Composer NLEs via the Dalet Xtend module, integrating content production. Dalet Galaxy also supports Win Sports' production of promos and long form shows produced from its studios to broadcast content through cable networks. Dalet Brio, which is managed by the Dalet Galaxy MAM, is used to digitize legacy content on Betacam, VHS tape and a variety of DVDs and to record additional incoming material from DVC Pro and other linear formats. Dalet WebSpace and Media Logger clients let staff add rich metadata to all incoming and newly digitized media, further improving the ability to search and repurpose content. The staff can also use Dalet clients to spot-check channel synchronization and audio volumes, ensuring content is being directed through the right channels. Founded and backed by DirectTV and RCN Group, Win Sports is a leading 24-hours channel focused on sports that reaches over 5 million households with carriage on several Colombian cable services. Its mix of news reporting, magazine shows and live transmissions includes flagship programs of Colombian Professional Soccer, Futsal and Basketball.

Dalet xN Reimagines the Media Enterprise
Dalet Digital Media Systems, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, through Dalet xN, today revealed the company’s long-term vision of the ever-evolving content supply chain. “Dalet xN exploits both the technical and business benefits that cloud and virtualization make possible,” states Stephane Schlayen, chief operating officer, Dalet. “While the concept of migrating a workflow or specific element of one’s workflow to the cloud or virtualized environment itself is not revolutionary, Dalet xN solutions go beyond this by extending and augmenting cloud and hybrid environments to provide a truly dynamic and flexible business infrastructure.” Derived from L’extension Nuage (French for “the extended cloud”), Dalet xN leverages the breadth and depth of the three Dalet platforms, Dalet Galaxy, Dalet AmberFin and Dalet Brio, for media management, processing and acquisition, respectively, to provide business solutions, services and applications for all levels of the media workflow, allowing users to reimagine the media enterprise and new business opportunities. Dalet xN is based on three key concepts: agile infrastructure, next generation operations and new business horizons. Agile Infrastructure Through smart management of physical and virtual technology, Dalet xN solutions allow content owners, creators and distributors to easily respond to resource needs and dynamically scale workflows, or parts thereof, at will. Accessible administration and user tools deliver the ease of use that users have come to expect from virtualized and cloud-based services and solutions. Next Generation Operations Intuitive mobile apps and web-based user interfaces combined with robust automation and advanced metrics reporting gives users more information and more freedom to be creative at every level of the business, from artistic tasks to business direction. “Dalet has an understanding of the enterprise and thus provides synergy across all Dalet xN solutions,” comments Kevin Savina, director of product strategy, Dalet. “Whereas today many organizations offer a specific service or product that often puts limits on the type of workflow you can implement, Dalet offerings can be tightly integrated or loosely coupled to fit a user’s specific workflow needs. No longer do users need to be tied to their desk. With Dalet xN, they can be more mobile, more creative and more informed.” New Business Horizons With the ability to scale an enterprise workflow or components of it up and down at will, Dalet xN allows content owners to not only react to their changing environments, but to also innovate the many ways they interact with their suppliers, users or audience. By lowering the cost of the initial infrastructure investment required for new projects and project expansions, operators can explore new revenue streams and rethink the way they work in their own media supply chain, opening doors to new opportunities. Savina explains, “You can provision for parts or all of your workflow tasks off-premise. What’s even more attractive is that you can turn it on or off as needed. This is ideal if you are increasing capacity for occasions such as covering elections or global sporting events where you need the additional infrastructure for a short period of time. It’s also ideal if you are launching a new media venture and want to minimize your investment while you test the waters. Dalet xN removes the overhead and provides the resources you need to grow, without the prohibitive upfront investment.” Book a Private Meeting With a Workflow Expert IBC show attendees can book a private demonstration or workflow consultation with a Dalet expert to learn how Dalet xN can help them better manage and distribute content at http://www.dalet.com/events/ibc-2015.

MXF AS02 and IMF: What's the Difference and Can They Work Together? A lot has changed in the development of IMF in that time, but the topic remains increasingly relevant. A presentation from the Dean of the Dalet Academy, Mr. MXF himself, would bring this blog bang up to do. Pictionary, Standards and MXF Interoperability: Ben Davenport explains the work of organizations around the globe to standardize on file delivery and exchange formats. He also hints at how he got a room full of people to play Pictionary during a serious presentation – something that could perhaps be repeated on the NAB show floor! Whether one attends NAB or not, all are welcome to vote and will have the chance to win an excellent prize just for participating. Dalet will announce the chosen blog on Sunday, April 12th.

The Industry’s Future Stars Pilot the Newsroom in the Cloud At this year’s NAB, Dalet will be simulating a “newsroom in the cloud” scenario. Working with journalism and communications students from local universities, the mock production crews will be covering highlights from the NAB show floor using new cloud-based newsroom solutions from Dalet, shooting interviews with Blackmagic Design URSA production cameras. A real-life case study exploring the cloud-based newsroom of the future, the broadcast simulation will help identify the real challenges that arise when working in the cloud, both from a technical as well as a human point of view. This proof-of-concept experiment aims to showcase a successful package ideal for small newsrooms that don’t have an NRCS; event-driven productions such as elections or sporting events; and newsroom extensions for freelancers. And keeping in line with the Dalet Academy mission, the project will serve as an educational activity for the students taking part. For more information on the “newsroom in the cloud” project or any other Dalet Academy NAB initiatives, please contact academy@dalet.com. Dalet Press Briefings at NAB 2015 Dalet experts will be presenting the latest tools and technologies on Monday (10:30am) and Wednesday (9:30am) mornings from the show floor. NAB press and attendees are invited to stop by and learn more while engaging with Dalet on these topics and other industry trends. For more information and to schedule a private press briefing at NAB, members of the media are invited to contact Anya Oskolkova at anya@zazilmediagroup.com.
