The Dalet AmberFin Cloud Workflow Designer
Excellence In Cloud
Recognizing the shift in customer agility and mobility needs, Dalet AmberFin provides a cloud-first approach that is backed by the completion of an AWS FTR.
Patrick elaborates, “It is no longer sufficient to simply take an on-premises system and run it on EC2 instances in the cloud, customers want cloud-native applications that can take full advantage of containerized services, scale up and scale down and the security best practices in the cloud.”
The AWS FTR provides a baseline for cloud requirements and covers development, best practices and operational considerations ensuring customers have the agility and firepower they need to manage through bursts in workload with ease, yet optimize cloud costs.
Convenience, Agility and Power
Dalet AmberFin’s advanced ingest management and conversion combined with elastic cloud resources enables enterprise users to cost-effectively facilitate large-scale projects. The newly updated Dalet AmberFin Kiosk, which supports macOS and offers expanded support for formats including ProRes RAW and NEF, helps users fly through offloading and backing up mass amounts of content. Utilizing cloud storage, it concurrently verifies content integrity and enriches metadata so that content is organized and ready to drive further operational workflows easily. This new capability is particularly useful for teams out on location for long production shoots. Processing pipeline improvements leverage Netflix Photon validation tools to enable key IMF workflows in the cloud. Other production efficiency enhancements include support for UHD input and output with a standard transcode node and support for writing ABR packages DASH & HLS while content is being ingested.
Evolution to SaaS
Dalet’s accelerated development plans progress its entire suite of cloud-native solutions in 2022. Dalet Flex will be made available as a multi-tenanted SaaS offering, providing customers with scalability and elasticity when needed while offloading the costs of infrastructure investment and time spent on maintenance to Dalet. With Dalet Pyramid, newsrooms will be able to virtualize their entire operation with increased production and distribution capabilities that enable digital-first news story workflows anytime, anywhere.
