Better Together! Dalet Acquires Ooyala Flex Media Platform business.
Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media organizations and content professionals, today announced Translations.com, the technology division of TransPerfect, has won the prestigious Dalet Business Innovation Award for 2019. Presented to Eric Blassin, executive director of technology, and Roy Dvorkin, vice president of media & entertainment of Translations.com, at the Dalet Pulse event held at the SLS Hotel in Las Vegas on the eve of NAB 2019, the Dalet Business Innovation Award recognizes pioneers of the media industry who are carving new paths for business using the Dalet Galaxy five platform.
Arnaud Elnecave, vice president of marketing, remarks on the awards and this year's recipient, “The Dalet Business Innovation Award acknowledges those innovators that break new ground using Dalet Galaxy. This year’s winner, Translations.com, makes clever use of the Dalet Galaxy five platform, tapping into the web services API for its own development and applying the core component-based workflows and data models to its specific need for translation, localization, versioning and delivery. The end result is a great testimony for how new business models and custom media operations can be enabled by building your own applications and connectors on top of Dalet’s off-the-shelf technology.”
NAB attendees can register to attend the Dalet Pulse event, which takes place on Sunday April 7th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Foundry, SLS Hotel in Las Vegas.
Translations.com is a division of TransPerfect, the largest language services provider in the world. Headquartered in New York City, Translations.com is an industry leader in providing technology-enabled solutions to meet the challenges of global communication and has been continuously innovating its language service solutions through the GlobalLink® Suite of products for over 16 years. GlobalLink® brings higher levels of automation and scalability to localization processes, enabling support for higher volumes of work, in over 170 languages to 5,000+ enterprise organizations worldwide. To expand and accelerate its media localization offering, Translations.com teamed up with Dalet to launch Media.Next, a new video-first international translation and localization platform.
Leveraging the Dalet Galaxy five Media Asset Management (MAM) and Workflow Orchestration platform and building on the principle of open production workflows, the new platform, dubbed “Media.Next,” prepares for the industry-wide explosion of media translation and localization needs. Media.Next was rolled out across Translations.com’s entire business as an integral part of its GlobalLink technology suite, reducing turnaround times and costs, while preserving the original creative intent.
TransPerfect President and CEO Phil Shawe stated, “The Dalet Galaxy five platform played a key role in the successful launch of our Media.Next solution. The demand for localization of video content is growing rapidly, and we’re confident that our partnership with Dalet will help us scale up to meet demand.”
One of the key goals of Translations.com was to bring work to people as opposed to bringing people to work. Contributors and contractors connect remotely to the platform using a suite of web applications developed internally as well as the native web tools of the Dalet Galaxy five platform. Leveraging Dalet Workflow Engine and Dalet Track Stack data model, Translations.com has designed and is implementing an efficient component-based workflow that distributes tasks from work orders to suborders at the track level. The new workflow model automatically bundles, packages, renders and delivers to destinations based on pre-configured business profiles and rules. The entire chain of content and operations is streamlined, de-duplicating storage needs and automating a number of steps that used to be manual, inefficient and error-prone.
