Introducing Dalet StoreFront: A Frictionless and Secure Way for Media Organizations to Showcase Their Content to Their Clients
Dalet StoreFront is a new way for media professionals to connect with their clients. It’s a window into the Dalet MAM inventory engaging clients through a familiar shopping cart approach.

Helping media professionals connect with clients

Dalet StoreFront is a SaaS (Software as a Service) portal that ensures content security while showcasing it to a community of clients and prospects. It’s a win-win situation that brings in untapped revenues connecting content to clients.

Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced Dalet StoreFront, a new SaaS-based solution that enables Dalet customers to create a content marketplace that offers a familiar shopping experience for their B2B clients, partners and affiliates. Dalet StoreFront manages multi-user access to Dalet MAM stored content with advanced search tools to quickly locate assets, filtered to only show relevant materials to a qualified client.

Underpinned by Dalet MAM orchestration engine for content preparation and delivery, Dalet StoreFront creates an optimal content shopping experience that maximizes inventory exposure, repurposing and retail opportunities, bringing value to the overall media operation and business. This service will benefit just about every Dalet customer from news networks sharing assets across affiliates to sports leagues servicing licensees.

“As audiences grow at a global scale, so does the need for more content. Maximizing exposure and facilitating discoverability of our customers’ new or untapped materials is more important than ever before,” states Luc Comeau, Market Director for MAM and Supply Chain at Dalet.“However, with this opportunity for increased content ROI comes additional supply chain complexities. Dalet StoreFront enables clients to tap into a rich Dalet MAM inventory with greater efficiency and speed, resurfacing and monetizing otherwise dormant archives, all within the familiar shopping experience that today’s digital shoppers come to expect.”

The Dalet StoreFront shopping experience is easily actionable, discoverable through an intuitive browsing and online shopping model, and eliminates the need for back and forth email exchanges.

Comeau explains,“Today many media operations rely heavily on unconnected processes to fulfill partners’ and licensees’ requests. Requests for content via email and disparate file delivery services are manually intensive and leave far too many opportunities to repurpose and resell content on the table,” states Comeau. “Dalet StoreFront identifies the ‘shopper’ and presents all of the relevant content options they can choose from, ensuring maximum catalog exposure while keeping content rights intact.”

With Dalet StoreFront, licensing content is easier than ever. Content owners can easily identify and tag content rights for their community of licensees as well as establish rights to visitors and potential licensees. Dalet StoreFront secures your rich content inventory by keeping all the source content under the control and management of Dalet MAM. Only after an order has passed through all checks, automated by Dalet Orchestration, can the fulfillment happen, thus creating a segregated browse/shopping experience from the source catalog.

Trailblazing Transcoding in the Cloud. Anywhere, at scale and with premium results!
Dalet AmberFin has been a go-to media conversion platform for high-end content for years now. Its scalable media processing tools offer transcode, color conversion, packaging, and file transport with an emphasis on the quality of the output. The AmberFin transcode engine was initially designed to run on cost-effective, commodity IT hardware on-premises, but on September 1, 2020 that all changed with the launch of Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder. <iframe width="100%" height="415" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/M4LdJ9b7kd8" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> The same great picture quality… with unlimited processing power and scalability! The new AmberFin Cloud Transcoder service is accessed through the same workflow engine as the on-premises transcoder, with the added advantage of immediate access to extra processing power in the cloud any time it’s needed. This gives facilities the ability to control an on-premises, fixed-capacity deployment and a burst-capacity deployment from the same workflow engine and REST API. We know our customers come to rely on AmberFin because of the quality and complexity of their requirements. Simpler transcode services can’t handle problems like having to do a standard conversion, in addition to a mezzanine conversion and putting a file package together at the end. AmberFin excels at that sort of complexity. So every feature that our customers know, like and love from the on-premises AmberFin solution, also works in the cloud. Nothing changes. Everything changes! There is no need to port any existing conversion profiles or workflows to get the cloud service running. AmberFin customers can use the new cloud service by logging in with a simple set of credentials and gain immediate access to extra burst capacity at comparable speeds. The service is offered as a low-cost multi-tenant environment offering geographical flexibility, with the transcode container being cloned into the bucket closest to the request. Customers can also deploy the AmberFin container inside their own VPC (virtual private cloud) infrastructure, giving the more security-conscious customers the peace of mind to have everything within their own infrastructure, which is already under audit control. Media professionals… Start your engines! With the halt in productions in Q2 and Q3, there is now a backlog of material that needs to be processed and distributed to a growing number of platforms. Leveraging AmberFin in the cloud is the fastest way to transcode and still achieve the highest quality results. And for those companies that are now coming to the end of the lifespan of their on-premises transcoder capacity, they should consider going straight to Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder. More options, better flexibility and agility to run your business. Eric Carson General Manager, Dalet West Coast US & Canada
Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder Bursts Premium Media Processing Performance with New Elastic Architecture
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder, a new SaaS-based, high-quality media processing service with robust media packaging and distribution capabilities for post-production and broadcast workflows. The solution includes every feature from the on-premises version of Dalet AmberFin, with tools beyond simple media conversions, ensuring media professionals have access to image scaling, standards conversions, cut/splice, caption conversion, audio normalization, localization versioning, IMF creation and submission, and HDR conversions. Unique among elastic cloud transcoders, Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder can be accessed via a public cloud managed service environment, or deployed as a scalable container-based service inside a customer’s existing private cloud infrastructure. The high-performance transcode service, which supports a wide range of formats, takes a factory-like approach to managing media conversion projects from small-scale post-production operations to larger media enterprises, with the highest degree of quality and economy. “Like the well known Dalet AmberFin on-premises transcoder and workflow orchestration platform, the Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder service will convert and package just about any file format, managing complexities, such as HDR processing, loudness normalization and caption conversions,” states Eric Carson of Dalet. “It’s the same great set of features running in an elastic, serverless architecture designed to optimize resources and cost for customers who require burst capacity, a native cloud presence, usage-based pricing, or all of the above.” Eric, who serves as General Manager for Dalet on the West Coast US and Canada studio and post-production, television networks, sports and news operations markets, is bringing his expertise in global file packaging and delivery to help drive the Dalet AmberFin business and product development roadmap. “Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder gives customers more choices on how they want to best manage their media operations. Since there is no need to port conversion profiles or workflows, customers can use existing workflows fully in the cloud or create a hybrid framework without ever compromising on quality. We’ve included the Cloud Transcoder capability directly in the Dalet AmberFin Workflow designer, so that our customers can be up and running in the cloud on day one, without involving a professional services team to move, test and debug media conversions,” adds Eric. “In the current environment, the ability to move from on-premises to the cloud without disruption is key for just about every client. It’s a new level of mobility and agility for media processing projects.” Feature highlights include: SaaS Offering, controllable from the Dalet AmberFin Workflow Engine and via REST API Elastic scaling in a managed service or within an existing VPC Supports all industry standard codecs, plus HDR and Dolby Vision API-first approach enables customers to use Dalet AmberFin on its own or inside a larger work order or MAM system, including Dalet Galaxy five or the Ooyala Flex Media Platform, now part of Dalet Fully compatible with existing Dalet AmberFin transcode profiles Easily balance transcode volume between on-premises and cloud, controlling both from the same workflow engine Monthly tier-based subscription with cost per minute pricing Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder is supported globally by Dalet’s professional services and customer support teams who can assist with workflow development, including scripting and API integration within a wide range of media environments.

The story behind Dalet StoreFront: open innovation, team collaboration and workflow expansion
Economists have an unusual word to describe the value in simple commodities like gold and platinum. It’s “fungible,” meaning that a substance is exchangeable. One piece of gold is the same as another piece. When you’re ordering gold, you don’t need to specify anything apart from how much of it you want to buy. You can split it up, mould it, melt it, recombine it and absolutely nothing has changed. You still only ever need to specify the weight of gold that you want to buy - or sell. Most things are not like that. Cars aren’t fungible. Nor are houses. And nor is media. You can’t buy media by the ounce. Media has many more dimensions and characteristics, all of which affect its value. But that’s only part of the story, because any given piece of media will have a different value to different buyers. Wildlife footage has very little value to an organisation that specialises in motor racing. Let’s look at this in more detail The media landscape today is significantly different in almost every way to how it was thirty years ago. Films are now files. Negatives are numbers. Cupboards full of tapes and reels have migrated to the cloud. And “supervising” all of this is a Media Asset Management system (MAM). Files are not physical things, and that opens up an incredible range of possibilities, but, because you can’t store non-physical things on shelves, you need an all-embracing MAM system like Dalet to keep track of all the ephemeral properties of millions of blobs of data. What is Dalet StoreFront? Dalet StoreFront is a window into the hidden value of a media organisation's media assets. It allows existing Dalet users to display their content to other media organisations, safely and simply. Essentially, it uses Dalet’s ability to orchestrate content to provide a browsing and fulfillment back-end to Dalet StoreFront’s users. The beauty of this arrangement is that there is virtually zero extra effort needed to prepare media. All the information - the metadata - about the media would have been input to the Dalet MAM as part of the normal process of onboarding media files. This is likely to include information about the title, authors, rights (including restrictions about usage) and also data about what’s contained within the clip, possibly including timecode references. There would also be information about format, resolution and whether or not the clip is in HDR, for example. This metadata, which needs to be there anyway as part of the normal usage of a Dalet MAM system, is exactly what’s needed as the basis for a transaction with a potential buyer. And because of the richness of the metadata, Dalet StoreFront is able to make sure that a media purchaser only sees content that it is allowed to acquire. Dalet StoreFront in Use Imagine a subscription based television provider specialising in travel and wildlife programming. Their world-class media content – programs, trailers, and B-roll content – needs to be distributed to a global network of broadcasters and partners. In a traditional model, the broadcaster/partner would need to email a request for materials. This request could be for marketing material to promote a program, highlights or materials to create the highlights, or the program itself. On the receiving end of the request – the television provider would need to check the rights of the content, the agreement with the partner, search the materials and send over a selection proxy assets. Once confirmed there is yet another step is to finalize the transaction and send assets, hopefully in the right format, via a file transfer service like Aspera. Every step requires manual interaction and investigation. When pressed for time, corners get cut and a sampling of what could be offered from the rich archives is shared for consideration. It’s a daunting process that affects the entire operation and more importantly, could shortchange the impact of the final material if a lesser quality asset was provided. Marketers Love Self-Serve Partners and broadcasters require marketing materials to promote programming. Eliminating the one-to-one requests, access to assets is predetermined, so only pre-approved marketing content is exposed to shoppers. Not only does this simplify the mass distribution of marketing material for new shows, it also makes it far more efficient to serve those broadcasters looking for a very specific asset...one that could promote the re-airing of an older program in a specific region. Find that B-Roll! Even a five-second shot used as B-roll can make all the difference to a producer looking for a specific shot to use in their highlight reel or production. Dalet StoreFront flips the traditional model and lets producers browse the catalog as opposed to an individual sending producers a handful of shots that may or may not be relevant. Dalet StoreFront broadens the selection to include ALL suitable content available for use. Requests for assets are sent to sales bringing the process down to a few simple steps. Prep Your Content for Global Delivery Much like marketing, handing localization of programming content under the traditional model involved many steps and efficiencies. New programs slated for worldwide distribution often need to be dubbed/subtitled in multiple languages. Dalet StoreFront presents localization entities (ex. companies like SDI Media, a Dalet customer) with the required proxy videos to begin their work. This eliminates the guesswork of who is to translate what along with the transfer back and forth of materials. The Dalet MAM back-end manages the delivery in the right file format, and delivers it to the relevant, pre-configured endpoint (e.g. a cloud secure storage location, a CMS, etc). Add More Angles to Your Fast Breaking News With news organizations constantly updating their catalog, Dalet StoreFront answers the call for immediacy and access to assets that will help journalists deliver hyper-local reporting. News organisations can share and deliver media as soon as content has been ingested and logged into the Dalet MAM. It doesn’t matter whether content has been on the system for years, or has just arrived. It’s all equally available giving newsrooms the material they need to build breaking stories and journalists the right media to localize their stories or bring in historical context. Open Up Your Archives… Safely! In the world of sports, archived content becomes even more valuable with time. Iconic plays and players are safely preserved in well-guarded content vaults. The sheer value of the material means no direct access for outside partners. Dalet StoreFront connects to the Dalet MAM archive, creating a separate security layer that tethers the archived assets in a safe manner. This allows clubs, leagues and other partners to browse the archives and select the materials they want to use in their productions whether it’s for highlights, programs or game recap. The Dalet back-end manages the entire process from presenting the materials, to requests for assets and delivery. Running on Amazon Web Services, Dalet StoreFront makes these and many other workflow scenarios happen. Every shape and form of content becomes searchable, browsable - and obtainable.

Dalet Inks Deal to Build World's Most Advanced Multi-platform Newsroom with Leading North American Broadcaster
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, has signed a landmark deal with a prominent North American broadcaster to build its next-generation, borderless multi-platform newsroom on Dalet Galaxy five. The broadcaster’s expansive operation is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service that includes four distinct traditional and digital news entities dedicated to delivering breaking news to more than 90 million homes. The digital transformation will leverage advanced Cloud and AI technologies and move all production and distribution operations to the cohesive Dalet Galaxy five platform, a unified Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial environment. Frederic Roux, vice president of sales, Americas, Dalet, comments on the multi-workflow advantages Dalet Galaxy five offers: “This particular news network is on air 24/7 and what they must deliver is far more diverse than straightforward news shows. They need to produce studio news programs and documentary-style shows, which are much closer to long-form programming workflows and often feature multi-camera productions. In addition, a new kind of storytelling is required when producing for OTT and digital, which adds complexity to the production chain.” Roux continues, “Dalet Galaxy five is able to facilitate standard news, long-form programming and digital workflows simultaneously. The transition to the platform brings immense efficiency to the operation with limitless options to implement future workflows and iterate quickly with new, digital-first initiatives. The consolidation of systems required to drive these disparate workflows will also help optimize the total cost of ownership for the broadcaster. In this era of fast-changing news consumption behavior, our customers need an agile platform that can adapt quickly to their new business reality. This agility is inherent to the Dalet Galaxy five hybrid architecture.” Based on a modern, video over IP infrastructure that uses the SMPTE 2110 standard, Dalet Galaxy five platform leverages the elasticity of the Cloud and offers federated production capabilities enabling the news network to effectively scale remote bureaus, field resources, and workflows at will. Cognitive services integrated with Dalet Galaxy five will accelerate the metadata enrichment of content archives making news assets easier to discover and readily available for creating deeper news stories across all platforms. Thanks to the hybrid architecture leveraging AWS, Dalet Galaxy five will provide native disaster recovery capability by offloading on-premise capacity to the Cloud when needed and processing scalability. “Today’s audiences crave more detailed news information on the viewing platform of their choice, especially for major sporting and political events,” adds Roux. “Broadcasters need a solution that enables them to deliver that deeper coverage whenever and wherever these events take place and create a content journey that engages audiences across all platforms. Dalet Galaxy five industry-leading remote access and editing provides a seamless news gathering and reporting experience enabling journalists to prepare robust multimedia stories whether they are in the newsroom or in the field on assignment.” Dalet Galaxy five will underpin the entire multi-platform production and delivery workflow, integrating key broadcast systems and propelling game-changing field and bureau workflows with a significantly improved remote editing user experience. Dalet Galaxy five’s orchestration capabilities will facilitate metadata-driven operations that automate complex media processes, distribute tasks and streamline workflows, simplifying the technical hurdles of media handling while simultaneously providing staff greater control over assets and monitoring capacities.

NextRadioTV Accelerates its Digital Transformation and Network Expansion with Dalet
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today that NextRadioTV has leveraged its existing Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM), Workflow Orchestration and Editorial platform located in Paris, France to launch the new BFM Lyon news channel. Owned by the multinational telecoms and mass media company Altice Group, NextRadioTV is one of the largest media properties in Europe with 14 TV and two radio channels, reaching more than 10 million viewers each day. A Dalet customer since 2005, NextRadioTV powers its content production, playout and multi-platform distribution workflows with Dalet Galaxy for all of their leading TV, radio and digital channel brands including, BFM Business, BFM Paris, RMC Sport, RMC Story, RMC Découverte, and BFMTV, France’s most-watched news channel. The diverse program content contains breaking local and national news, world financial and business news, and full coverage of football, rugby, tennis, boxing and more. “NextRadioTV has an ambitious roadmap in terms of both new content production and new channels, like BFM Lyon,” comments Antoine Robelin, Broadcast CTO, NextRadioTV. “Underpinning the entire operation with an agile platform like Dalet Galaxy enables us to centralize all of our media operations and optimize productions. More than 1,000 journalists and editors are able to work with the Dalet Galaxy system. They work collaboratively and share their content across all NextRadioTV brands. This gives us tremendous flexibility with regards to feeding channels and distribution outlets, including our new BFM Lyon channel.” NextRadioTV’s digital transformation with Dalet has enabled the group to launch new initiatives like the ultra-targeted regional station BFM Lyon quickly, while keeping in line with the brand’s content strategy across multiple locations. With a reputation for always being the first to broadcast breaking news, the Dalet tools help NextRadioTV verify, editorialize and broadcast content before any other media outlet. “Launching BFM Lyon, the second regional channel after BFM Paris under Altice France, marks a major step in our network expansion strategy. Thanks to the advanced collaboration framework and powerful connectivity, Dalet Galaxy has helped broaden our reach while accelerating a digital transformation that allows us to continue to scale with ease,” adds Antoine Robelin. A single Dalet Galaxy MAM, orchestration and editorial platform powers NextRadioTV's massive multi-channel, multi-format and multi-output programming, from news and sports to long-form and radio programs, allowing individual teams to manage collaboratively everything from content ingest, editing, graphics and playout, to multi-platform distribution and archives. Johann Zemmour, General Manager EMEA-APAC, Dalet comments, “The agility of Dalet Galaxy is very important for NextRadioTV’s product-oriented production approach, in which they use a studio to produce a show and decide later where and when that program content will appear on TV, radio and digital. Dalet Galaxy allows them to use their resources independently of their channels, enabling NextRadioTV to leverage a wide range of content for new channels as well as manage distribution across their many platforms in an incredibly efficient manner.” Dalet systems have supported BFMTV programming throughout their entire history, from a small newsroom of 50 people to what is today several hundreds of simultaneous users and advanced workflows covering all production and playout operations. Serving all operations across multiple locations, the Dalet Galaxy systems facilitates immediate content sharing across all departments, supporting desktop editing for fast turnaround news and sports via Dalet OneCut, and advanced packages crafted on Adobe Premiere Pro CC brought seamlessly into the collaborative workflow via Dalet Xtend. <iframe width="660" height="415" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/F_PXyJtOchs" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> About NextRadioTV NextRadioTV is an independent multimedia company.
