  1. The Upper Hand in Stadium Sports

As a Canadian, I was brought up to love hockey, but as a technologist and trainer, there’s nothing better than walking around a stadium, meeting and interacting with all of the different characters involved in a sporting event and witnessing first hand how coaches, players, fans, directors and video editors, to name a few, can benefit from a good MAM system.

  1. Workflow Automation with a Human Touch

In a recent survey we asked a handful of leading media facilities in Europe and North America, among other things, to what extent they agreed with the following two statements: (1) There are too many manual steps in my workflow and (2) There is potential to reduce the number of manual steps through workflow automation. Although there was a little variation between the European and American answers, the trends were largely similar, and the combined result is shown below for the first time...

  1. The Power of the Dalet Search

In today’s multi-platform world, simply put, finding stuff is becoming more complex. As the amount of content owned, archived and distributed by broadcasters is rapidly growing, it is also evolving, resulting in an exponential expansion of files that must be managed. What was once a one-to-one relationship between the "record" and the media, has evolved into a model where a complex collection of elements (audio, video, text, captions, etc.) forms a record relationship. And don’t even get me started on versioning. So, how do we find what we are looking for?

  1. Live from the NAB – sort of!

Normally during a big trade show, such as NAB or IBC, we would have a blog from the show floor – primarily to give our readers not attending the show a glimpse into the main topics of discussion and general vibe at the convention center. The sharp-eyed among you will, therefore, have noted that we’re a little late on this one – sorry – the show was simply that busy that we never had the opportunity. To make it up to you, we’ve compiled show highlights from some of our Academy all-stars.

In 1990, six friends from engineering and business school formed a company that pioneered the first audio software and centralized database solution for the radio industry, Dalet. From humble beginnings to a truly international organization, discover the key milestones of the company.

  1. Integrated Video Server Solutions for Production Workflows

Production houses, newsrooms and sports facilities receive content from a wide variety of sources such as ISOs, cameras, tapes and feeds, where the content is later edited using non-linear editing systems for playout and distribution.

The answer is as simple as the upgrade process and we are presenting here a few ways that Dalet Galaxy can improve your existing workflow.

  1. BEST…NAB…EVER!!!!!

The other day, a member of our talented development team commented, quite accurately, that every time we return from an NAB Show, we nearly always refer to it as the biggest, busiest and best NAB ever. I do confess that I momentarily felt a certain amount of pressure to come back from NAB 2015 with evidence that it really was bigger, busier and better than previous years… But it was and here is why!

  1. Analyze This! Analyze That! Analyze Everything!

Today, the broadcast industry has generally accepted the need for Media Asset Management solutions for production, archive, sports and news systems. In the production process, a vast amount of information is generated, such as the number of text, video and audio assets created, as well as information about transcoding, transferring, QC processes, broadcast information, web publishing, archiving and much more. All of this information, when gathered and analyzed, can be very useful…

  1. 4K, HDR & UHD: A Look at CES Trends Impacting the Media Industry

Last week, the infamous Consumer Electronics Show (better known as CES) took place in Las Vegas. While it’s not an event that many vendors like ourselves in the media industry attend, it is a show that we watch carefully – acknowledging that our customers’ business is consumer-led, and that innovation in consumer electronics will often drive our customers’ future needs.
