JKN Global Media PCL Thailand Invests in Dalet For Media Management Transformation
Dalet announced today that JKN Global Media PCL Thailand (JKN) has invested in the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM) and Workflow Orchestration platform to optimize content production and delivery across traditional, OTT and social media distribution outlets.

Optimizing content production and delivery

Dalet Galaxy five unifies multiple production silos under one platform with flexibility to grow

Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, announced today that JKN Global Media PCL Thailand (JKN) has invested in the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM) and Workflow Orchestration platform to optimize content production and delivery across traditional, OTT and social media distribution outlets. The installation enables a comprehensive workflow transformation, taking the Thai-based media organization from manually managing assets to automated processes that optimize production and delivery efficiencies across the entire media operation.

Headquartered in Nakhon Pathom, JKN Global Media, together with its subsidiaries, is a leading content distributor and licensing management business in Thailand. It is involved in the distribution of movies, TV series and documentaries for digital TV, cable satellite, home entertainment and OTT platforms. In addition to importing content from all over the world, JKN also produces original Thai-centric programming content for Discovery, History Channel and National Geographic. A large volume of JKN’s business is in the distribution of foreign language content to broadcasters, repackaging and dubbing this content into multiple languages in-house. It also plays out content to traditional and social platforms. With legacy workflows based on files and folders manually managed and exchanged from one group to the next, there was no integration, processes were time-consuming, and assets were left unenriched.

“JKN Global Media had the core goal to increase overall productivity, in terms of content, and boost distribution efficiency by adopting facility-wide migration policies, automated transcoding, and expansive metadata tagging and tracking,” states Cesar Camacho, general manager, Dalet Asia Pacific. “With Dalet, they have succeeded in doing this. They now have a platform, with which they can better serve content to viewers on any platform and evolve their business in reselling content. The agility of Dalet Galaxy five allows JKN to expand its capabilities without implementing an entirely new system. For example, they can easily add orchestration to take advantage of emerging technologies such as AI.”

With the goal of becoming more systemic and detail-accurate with regards to content management, JKN invested in Dalet Galaxy five. Moving from a legacy infrastructure that was characterized by pockets of content and asset management siloed across the facility, JKN has unified all of its systems and content repositories under one single platform with the flexibility to scale as business requires. Dalet Galaxy five provides browser-based access to content and assigns migration policies so content flows through a consistent process. All assets are centralized and detailed metadata tracking allows JKN to optimize the content use. Enriched metadata also means that it can pinpoint assets for production and delivery to all distribution outlets with far more efficiency.

The full implementation of Dalet Galaxy five at JKN Global Media includes: Dalet Webspace for browser-based search and retrieval; Dalet AmberFin for orchestrated, high-quality transcoding; and Dalet Xtend for seamless workflow collaboration between Dalet Galaxy five, Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid ProTools. There are further integrations with Aspera for accelerated file transfer and Vidchecker for QC. The Dalet platform integrates fluently with JKN’s business management and content management systems, with the organization’s playout system, and with all major social media platforms for frictionless online publishing.

Camacho adds, “Dalet’s entry into the Thai market comes hot on the heels of several key APAC customer expansions including ABS-CBN’s addition of Dalet at its Cebu news site in the Philippines and the enterprise rollout of the Dalet media asset management and workflow platform at Australia's Special Broadcasting Service. These diverse and large-scale implementations are a testament to Dalet’s ability to support broadcast networks transformation to faster, agile multiplatform content supply chains.”

The Evolution of Sports Broadcasting – Wimbledon as a Case in Point
We have seen an abundance of live streams available to watch Wimbledon for several years. Take Virgin Media for instance – the broadcast channel surprised everyone in 2019 by announcing that it would be offering its customers access to all of the big matches on Centre Court in 4K with HDR. This was a strategic move for Virgin Media, by timing it around one of the flagship sporting events of the year it helped to increase subscriptions and provide its customers with a high-quality viewing experience. Meaning that the broadcaster remains relevant and a viable option and platform for people to enjoy major sporting events, creating a competitive edge against its market competitors. Content supply chain control Wimbledon had predicted the rise in new technologies a couple of years ago and set up its own broadcast division to future-proof its control over technology, content, and engagement. In the past, Wimbledon’s broadcasting rights was outsourced to the BBC; The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), Wimbledon’s organizer, had limited access and control over The Championship’s content. It was therefore an obvious decision, in 2017, for AELTC to announce that Wimbledon Broadcasting Services (WBS) will have full ownership of the TV cameras and broadcast output internationally. This was a sports industry trend at the time, rights holders demanded greater control over their content supply chain. Tennis Australia was a pioneer in bringing TV production in-house for the Australian Open two years earlier. AELTC now oversees its individual stakes and audience engagement in-house, building on its existing stakeholder relationships (whilst staying friends with the BBC) and exploring new revenue streams. The BBC still maintains exclusive rights to Wimbledon’s broadcast in the UK, but it will no longer have any say on production costs. The Championships is now capable of maximizing on its wealth of legacy content, in addition to new and archived material - an average of three matches per court, each day, video from matches can add up to hundreds of hours of footage. The audience will now benefit from added choice, access to a broader range of content, and ultimately an enhanced user experience across different platforms. A platform for monetization Enter the Ooyala Flex Media Platform, a technology solution that helps its customers future-proof their own levels of control. Whether it’s an existing or new piece of technology that needs integrating into the ecosystem, content retrieval from several sources, or delivering media to more endpoints – the Ooyala Flex Media Platform empowers them to do this, and more. OoyalaMAM enables organizations to manage, search, edit and deliver to multiple destinations; helping them unlock previously untapped opportunities. Once you have full visibility of your content catalog, and how to source it quickly and efficiently, the ability to monetize becomes massive. Today, the Ooyala Flex Media Platform is helping multiple sports organizations such as Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), National Rugby League (NRL), and many more to do exactly this - help take control of their own destiny and have that direct engagement with their fans. The need for speed (and AI) Going back to the focus on efficiency and speed… AI has helped AELTC to successfully streamline its content supply chain in a time- and cost-efficient manner. It not only localizes content for the UK market, but also creates and distributes a significant number of original videos for different markets - delivering an all-round excellent user experience. Organizers will also find additional revenue coming-in from sponsors and global broadcast partners, who now have an augmented library of content to engage with fans. The Ooyala Flex Media Platform, together with Dalet Media Cortex, now provides AI-driven workflows to automatically associate that metadata against the correct content. This hands back valuable time to customers in both financial and delivery terms. Once the metadata has been automatically indexed with Dalet Media Cortex, you can then go into OoyalaMAM and review the metadata and manually add, change, and delete anything that needs that last adjustment from a human intervention. The ability to marry automation and manual workflows gives sports rights holders and distributors a powerful metadata enrichment engine, and allows them to be reassured that their metadata is being correctly inserted. The secret to optimizing speed and efficiency in a content supply chain is to harmonize and manage all its components, making it as flexible and organic as possible. Although this is not an easy feat as Wimbledon and its technology partners have been developing their strategy to improve global fan engagement for 30 years!

Capturing the television audience of the future wuth OTT
It was only a few years ago that video streaming was seen as a ’nice to have’, an addition to TVs, and there were doubts as to whether Netflix and HBO had the ability to disrupt the broadcast landscape. Consumers now have access to a wide range of viewing options, which explains why video analysis and creative content are more important than ever before. Daily film and video consumption via the internet is increasing for all ages, 52% of UK households connect their TV to the internet. Senior viewership has long been a safe card for traditional TV, generally spending longer hours consuming television compared with younger viewers; with adults in the age group of 65 years and older watching 5.72 hours of TV each day. Yet this is changing at an ever-increasing pace as the demographic now chooses to watch television via OTT platforms such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and YouTube. Read more

New Dalet Cube NG Brings Advanced Broadcast Graphics to Dalet Unified News Operations
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, announced today the release of its next generation platform for news graphics and workflows, Dalet CubeNG. Fully integrated across the Dalet Unified News Operations solution powered by Dalet Galaxy five, the state-of-the-art, full-featured Dalet CubeNG graphics platform leverages the industry-leading Brainstorm real-time graphics engine to deliver superior 2D and 3D branding and visuals. Suited for both on-air and file-based graphics creation, the Dalet CubeNG unified approach enables news broadcasters to easily create dynamic branding and up-level visual storytelling across traditional, digital and social channels. “Great graphics play a key role in impactful storytelling and deepening viewer engagement. The expansive capabilities of Dalet CubeNG powered by the Brainstorm graphics engine is a significant upgrade for what our Dalet Galaxy five news customers can achieve in terms of creating riveting visual narratives across all distribution channels,” comments Kevin Savina, Director of Product Strategy, Dalet. A major upgrade to the existing Dalet Cube graphics platform, Dalet CubeNG offers a redesigned, highly scalable architecture and modern web-based UI. The embedded, high-performance Brainstorm real-time 3D graphics engine significantly expands on-air and file-based graphics capabilities with its support for 4K and user-defined options, added primitives for building 2D and 3D graphics, support for Unicode fonts and languages, and outstanding transition logic. Noted news broadcasters that rely on the Brainstorm real-time graphics engine include CNBC, NHK, RAI, RTHK, RTVE, TVN and many others. “Brainstorm’s real-time graphics engine has proven its power, flexibility and reliability in hundreds of installations all over the world,” says David Alexander, Brainstorm’s Commercial Director. “And we are now very excited with this new opportunity, forging a long-term relationship with Dalet by working together to provide news broadcasters with state-of-the-art features and a very versatile toolset with the Brainstorm engine at the core of Dalet CubeNG. The ease, speed and flexibility of content creation offered by the new Dalet CubeNG, which are well recognised hallmarks of Brainstorm’s graphics engine, empower broadcasters with greater capabilities to better engage with their audiences and enhance the viewer experience with more visually attractive graphics and improved storytelling.” Feature highlights of the new Dalet CubeNG include: Advanced Materials and Objects – Thanks to the Brainstorm graphics engine, Dalet CubeNG supports a wide range of objects including spheres, curves and arrows with extensive control over parameters. It also includes a particle generator for creating visual effects such as fire, smoke, rain and more, and other special objects that can be dynamically linked to external data parameters. Font and Text Management – Dalet CubeNG offers full control over 2D and 3D text including size, texture, shading and mapping. It also includes support for Unicode fonts and a wide range of languages including Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Japanese, Korean and Thai. Format and Resolution Independent – Dalet CubeNG is resolution independent and supports HD, 2K, 4K, 8K, UHD and beyond, as well as digital and social graphics formats and workflows. Tweet to Graphics – No story is complete until it’s been posted on social; the moment users transform a tweet into a graphic, that graphic becomes an object within Dalet that journalists can either schedule in a production rundown or play out on-air with the news package. Ease-of-Use – Dalet CubeNG features simple-to-use tools and tight integration with Dalet Galaxy five that facilitate the adoption of graphics creation and use across the newsroom. Fully integrated with Dalet Galaxy five, Dalet CubeNG gives news broadcasters a complete solution for building impactful graphics to enhance a news story. Thanks to this native connection, changes to graphics can be made on playback, with advanced support for updating behavior and conditions. Users can add CG elements into the video project for either playout or burn-in, and graphics will trigger automatically at playout wherever the journalists placed CGs on the timeline. With total control of graphics playout with the on-air video operator, news teams can better allocate resources and improve operations all around. Dalet Galaxy five tracks every graphic object, allowing graphic designers, journalists, producers and other staff to search on any and every graphic element, making it easier than ever to repurpose graphics and objects, keeping a broadcaster’s brand consistent across all distribution outlets while maintaining efficiency.

It also gives us the ability to reuse that content for a related story in the future; connecting the history of the organization to that ‘now’ moment, which deepens the passion our fans have for their favorite team.” MLSE captures an enormous amount of content from games, practices, media scrums and interviews, and carefully curates that content for delivery to an omnichannel experience their fans have come to expect. Leveraging Dalet Galaxy, MLSE effectively wrangles content with a detailed metadata scheme that makes it accessible and useable in the moment and in the future <iframe width="100%" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/rl9yRhM0Jm8" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> By unifying content ingest, production and distribution into a cohesive ecosystem, Dalet Galaxy enables operations to have greater agility to share content across divisions, bureaus and remote locations, driving the interconnected storytelling they require across the brand. “Content is becoming increasingly more strategic for sports networks, leagues, teams, venues, and brands to better engage and retain their fans, whether it’s direct or through a network of providers,” states Frederic Roux, Vice President of Sales, Dalet. “To be competitive, you need a supply chain such as Dalet Galaxy that can manage the rich content inventory as it grows, effectively utilize it, and quickly tap into new opportunities when they arise. With its agile orchestration and publishing workflow, Dalet Galaxy manages content lifecycle with the built-in flexibility required to make those critical ‘in the moment’ adjustments that keep fans dialed in at all stages of the game experience.” About the Dalet Workflow at MLSE Serving as the core media infrastructure for Scotiabank Arena, the Dalet Galaxy platform facilitates all team content logging, transcoding, fast assembly and multiplatform distribution at the venue.

Al Rayyan TV Builds Its Broadcast Future on Dalet
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced that the Al Rayyan TV Channel has centralized all of its media operations on the Dalet Galaxy five media platform. A subsidiary of the Al Rayyan Media and Marketing Company, Al Rayyan TV is known for its Qatari cultural programming, offering a range of in-house and locally produced entertainment, magazines and news-oriented shows. The enterprise-wide revamp of the technical infrastructure is part of the broadcaster’s move to its new state-of-the-art broadcast facility located in Souq Waqif, Doha. With Dalet Galaxy five underpinning the operation, the Al Rayyan TV team can seamlessly connect each stage of the workflow, managing content from the moment it arrives at the facility onto the production of programs to distribution over satellite, digital and social media channels from one platform. The fluid Dalet Galaxy five-driven workflow brings significant productivity gains to all aspects of the media operation, improving not only program time to air, but the overall quality of program packages with more time dedicated to content creation. Mohamad Naim Al Said, Engineering Department Director, Al Rayyan Mohamad Naim Al Said, Engineering Department Director, Al Rayyan, explains, “The business goal driving this upgrade is to meet the needs and expectations of the Qatari viewers and expatriates for a more robust program offering. Since we are a tapeless environment and to allow our teams to produce and share content internally much more efficiently, accelerating our production schedules while dedicating more time to crafting high-quality packages, we decided to go with Dalet Galaxy five as a collaborative software that centralizes our valuable assets under one single system. The underlying media asset management and workflow orchestration functionality allows us to exchange content seamlessly from one department to another, setting the stage for expanding our program production and delivery options. Two main sections of Al Rayyan Engineering Department such as MCR, Ingest, and Broadcast IT Teams which are being headed by Ghandi Elghotmi and Riyaz Mirza respectively, planned, initiated and completed the work tirelessly with SMC and Dalet during the launching of Dalet MAM System on the migration project.” The full implementation of Dalet Galaxy five allows Al Rayyan to build an end-to-end digital content supply chain that connects and unifies all operations and processes from ingest to post-production, to distribution over satellite and social media channels, to archives. Key components include a centralized content catalogue (MAM), search and media management; seamless collaboration between all users, including editors on Adobe Premiere Pro CC through Dalet Xtend; centralized ingest management through Dalet Brio video server, and Dalet AmberFin scalable transcoding. Production and management teams across the operations can easily access the archives, having more options for program content thanks to seamless integration through the Dalet API. Dalet Professional Services and local business partner Salam Media Cast collaborate with Al Rayyan Team through the entire process from architecting the new technical system, designing the new production and programming workflows, to implementing the solution, training the various user groups and support. Dalet’s general manager of EMEA and APAC, Johann Zemmour, comments, “Dalet Galaxy five gives Al Rayyan a full-fledged content production, management and distribution platform that eliminates the legacy siloed organisation. It is a new agile, foundation backed by a team of experts that can help them make the leap forward. They can now leverage emerging technologies such as AI, adapt faster and create new efficiencies that will allow them to expand their programming beyond the expectations of their audience.” For more information on Dalet Galaxy five, please visit www.dalet.com/galaxy-five or visit Dalet at CABSAT 2019 in Hall 3 on stand G3-31.
