Dalet will showcase at IBC 2007 (September 7-11) the seamless integration of Digidesign Pro Tools with Dalet Radio Suite made possible by the new Creative Network Design MetaPlug Broadcast extension. MetaPlug Broadcast 2.0 for Dalet Radio Suite enables complex Digidesign Pro Tools mixes with associated metadata to be saved to a Dalet Content Catalogue and made available to all Dalet users. As such, this integration merges post-production workflows based on Digidesign Pro Tools with integrated production, scheduling and play-out workflows powered by Dalet Radio Suite, as well as with digital archives based on Dalet Media Library.
“The introduction of MetaPlug Broadcast 2.0 for Dalet Radio Suite represents another step forward in digital broadcast workflow. Today’s broadcast professionals want complete integration of their digital media assets. They need instant and seamless upload capability for their work, be it commercials, news stories, or music,” said Markus Schmidt, Founder and CEO of Creative Network Design. “With MetaPlug Broadcast for Dalet Radio Suite, users can send complex audio files with metadata from Pro Tools to Dalet. This has been long sought-after by many Digidesign and Dalet broadcast customers, and we can now offer this integration as a secure AudioSuite plug-in.“
“This partnership with Creative Network Design expands on our fundamental principle of integrating end-to-end workflows,” comments Nicolas Hans, Director of Marketing, Dalet. “Incorporating popular post-production platforms such as Digidesign Pro Tools seamlessly into our enterprise workflow provides tremendous benefits for our customers. We are thrilled with the partnership and resulting benefits.”
Prior to the Dalet integration with MetaPlug Broadcast, Digidesign Pro Tools users had to undertake multiple steps to hand off their sessions including: bounce to disk, upload to an FTP site, import the file and then manually enter metadata into the Dalet Asset Manager. The new MetaPlug Broadcast 2.0 for Dalet Radio Suite reduces this upload process to a single step conveniently from the Digidesign Pro Tools application. The entire media file including metadata is seamlessly populated in the Dalet Content Catalogue and available across the entire music production and playout workflow.
