Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, is providing media companies a smooth transition path to full IP production workflows with the latest version of its SMPTE ST 2110 compliant Dalet Brio ingest and playout platform. Offering maximum flexibility for creating and delivering programs and content across transitioning infrastructures, Dalet Brio 3.21 supports greater density with more ingest and playout streams, making it even easier and faster for companies to migrate operations to IP without disrupting existing workflows that still rely on SDI. IT administrators who manage media infrastructure will appreciate the ease of configuration, expansive codec support and approach to managing dual standards without compromising features or migration to full IP. The feature-rich IP capabilities with simultaneous support for SDI bring business and operational stakeholders greater flexibility when producing, managing and distributing content on-premises or in the cloud.
“Unless you are starting from scratch, there is no overnight jump to IP. We find our customers need legacy SDI workflows while they transition to IP. It’s a delicate balancing act,” said Jérémy Krein, Product Manager, Dalet Brio. “The Dalet Brio platform is designed to provide our customers with a practical, flexible and cost-effective solution for transitioning their entire operations to IP environments over time, supporting everything from media management and workflow orchestration to news production and archives.”
Dalet Brio provides robust support for content production distributed across multiple platforms as well as a variety of internet streams including SRT, RTMP, and NDI, giving media companies near unlimited freedom for creating and distributing content.
Jérémy adds, “Since its initial introduction, Dalet has continuously expanded the platform’s capabilities to add new features and address current production requirements based on customer needs. For example, Dalet Brio users can now securely play out secured Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMPS) streams directly to social media platforms like YouTube or Facebook Live.”
Dalet’s latest Brio release supports full IP production workflows
Dalet Brio supports SMPTE ST 2110 UHD workflows and SDI standards, allowing media facilities to invest in an IP infrastructure at their own pace without disrupting current operations. Dalet Brio is “IP-Ready certified” and is now part of the official JT-NM Tested program to validate support for ST 2110 and NMOS, further demonstrating Dalet’s commitment to widely supported, open standards for IP workflows. In addition, Dalet has recently joined the SRT Alliance, which optimizes video streaming performance even across unpredictable networks.
On the Horizon
Upcoming planned 2020 enhancements to the Dalet Brio platform include support for AWS cloud workflows, ingesting SRT and RTMP streams from bonded unmanaged IP networks as well as simultaneously producing MPEG-Dash on S3 and production MXF. These planned additions will allow remote production teams to have an end-to-end, cloud-based IP workflow for video contribution directly to the Dalet Brio server, making content available immediately within the newsroom for reviewing, editing or playout.
Dalet solutions and services enable media organizations to create, manage and distribute content faster and more efficiently, fully maximizing the value of assets. Based on an agile foundation, Dalet offers rich collaborative tools empowering end-to-end workflows for news, sports, program preparation, post-production, archives and enterprise content management, radio, education, governments and institutions.

The integration of the Ooyala Flex Media Platform business has opened vast opportunities for Dalet customers to deploy successful strategies that better address their audiences with agile multi-platform content distribution in a wider range of markets, such as sports for teams and leagues, brands and corporate organizations, as well as Media and Entertainment companies looking to scale up their digital offerings.
