Dalet has introduced significant updates across its media logistics, AI-driven production and IP ingest and playout product line.
Cloud-native platforms Dalet Flex, Dalet Media Cortex and Dalet Brio have all been enhanced with new capabilities.
Dalet Flex, which centralises production, distribution and archiving workflows into a configurable content management application, now includes the FlexExtend Panel to provide enhanced NLE integration with creative tools such as Adobe Premiere Pro. The panel features full search and content discovery with free text searching for general queries; advanced filters and sorting for targeted queries against any metadata, and saved searches for common queries. Users can work with proxy files or source content and have both thumbnail and list view for browsing and searching for content. They also have the ability to preview video, image and audio content before importing to a project. Users can cross-collaborate with FlexMam and asset collections.
The Dalet Brio ingest and playout platform now supports greater density with more ingest and playout streams, making it easier and faster for companies to migrate operations to IP without disrupting existing workflows that still rely on SDI. Smarter workload distribution and core optimisations around HD and UHD increase density and propel an overall smoother ingest and playout workflow for high resolution productions.
The Dalet Media Cortex AI service platform leverages cognitive services and machine learning to offer Dalet customers speech-to-text, object recognition, facial recognition and automated subtitling services. Additions include APIs to translate captions while preserving timing information, eliminating the need to manually re-time translated captions.
Additionally, the integrated caption editor now flags infringements around timing, line and character overlaps in real-time allowing users to address visual issues early on in the production process. A complement to both Dalet’s Media Workflows and News solutions, Dalet Media Cortex will also ship as part of the AI-powered newsroom starter pack for the soon-to-be-released Dalet Pyramid.
“These new capabilities help our customers to not only hurdle the challenges of a workplace in transition, but be better prepared for any future disruptions,” said Bea Alonso, chief market officer, Dalet. “Our customer experience is at the heart of development and Dalet is delivering highly adaptive tools that improve media workflows and the overall business outcome.
“AI is becoming more pervasive in media production and, at Dalet, we continue to integrate across offerings, helping customers do their jobs better. Metadata, which is critical for AI workflows, is at the heart of all our platforms. We have expertise in leveraging it to propel productivity-enhancing AI workflows like real-time recommendation of indexed content for storytellers and automatic creation of subtitles for content destined for global audiences.”
