Dalet, a leading technology and service provider for media-rich organizations, today announced significant new updates to Dalet Flex, the award-winning media logistics platform used by brands, sports, and media organizations to bring content to audiences. The release enhances Dalet Flex’s end-to-end functional coverage and continuity for content preparation, packaging, and delivery across traditional, digital and social platforms.
“As the media ecosystem evolves, it becomes more complex and a real challenge to navigate for many,” states Mathieu Zarouk, Director Product Strategy, Media Workflows, Dalet. “Dalet Flex sits at the intersection, offering customers a single source of truth that enables them to effectively manage complex workflows and service license agreements (SLAs) that may involve multiple media packages going to a wide range of destinations. We continue to modernize our offerings, responding to industry and customers’ needs on mobility, flexibility, and agility. Our roadmap is focused on enabling users to efficiently power their multimedia content supply chains with high availability, resilience, quality, and security.”
The underlying poly cloud-native Dalet Flex architecture offers unparalleled mobility for distributed workgroups and inherent agility to onboard new media formats, emerging technologies, and viewing platforms with ease.

What’s New in Dalet Flex?
The following Dalet Flex features continue to simplify managing media production and delivery:
Enhanced Production Capabilities
The updated FlexXTEND for Adobe® Premiere® Pro features a revamped user experience that makes FlexMAM’s advanced search capabilities available to editors. Using FlexXTEND, users can trigger rendering of their Adobe Premiere Pro sequence on a remote Adobe Media Encoder, minimizing media movements and freeing up their local system for continued use.
Ideal for storyboarding, content creators can organize sequences in Dalet Flex and easily share them with other Dalet Flex users or send them directly to Adobe Premiere Pro or Avid® Media Composer® for further editing.

Improved Controlled Vocabulary and Search
Controlled Vocabulary brings efficiencies to content categories and makes content even more searchable and easier to share. Permissions management on tags collections, thesaurus support, and taxonomy improvements help users dial in faster to the content they need for their productions.
Additional search operations (for example “Contains,” “Start with” or “End with”) and user interface improvements make it easier for users to build and visualize even the most specific search queries. Users can now refine permissions for their searches to be visible to other users or groups, making collaboration easier.

Resource Allocation and Auto-Scaling
Dalet Flex quotas allow admins to define concurrency limits on actions and workflows, offering yet another area in which productions can fine-tune processes for efficiency. Productions can optimize costs and efficiency by dynamically sizing their infrastructure to seamlessly support bursts in resource needs thanks to Kubernetes support for media processing services on Cloud infrastructure.
On the Horizon
Dalet Flex customers can look forward to continued enhancements over the next six months including new reporting tools for billing and cloud consumption costs, as well as support for additional languages within FlexMAM. In 2022, additional functionality will include a brand-new mobile app for searching and managing content, as well as enhanced multi-tenanted SaaS offerings.
