Dalet will showcase at IBC 2007 (Sept. 7-11), its new Dalet Media Library 2.0 release integrated with EVS XT production servers. A turn-key asset management and archiving solution for sports, news and programs, Dalet Media Library 2.0 greatly accelerates broadcast workflows by automatically referencing and transferring media from EVS production servers to an HSM-based distributed digital media library. Dalet Media Library automatically generates low bit rate proxies for on-the-fly shot selection and editing. The seamless ingest to playout workflow is ideal for real-time reporting and playout situations such as sports. The Dalet-EVS powered workflow can be seen at IBC 2007 on the Dalet booth, 9.420.
“We are very pleased to collaborate with a market leading technology provider such as Dalet. The seamless integration between our XT server and Dalet Media Library 2.0 perfectly meets broadcasters’ requirements for integrated workflows between production and archiving,” says Nicolas Bourdon, Marketing & Communications Director of EVS.
“Broadcasters today want the freedom of combining best-of-breed broadcast equipment such as EVS XT production and playout servers within their enterprise back-office; the integration with Dalet Media Library 2.0 does just that: it allows for SD and HD content captured with EVS to be seamlessly migrated to an open media asset management platform,” explains Kevin Savina, Product Director, Dalet.
Dalet Media Library 2.0 is the first asset management and archive system specifically designed for broadcasters. It provides a fast-access digital library that seamlessly integrates with existing systems and video server platforms. This new release provides dramatic improvements in terms of file-based ingest and content distribution as well as support for HD formats.
EVS XT production servers deliver a full range of applications for live/studio production, post content management, and playout. The XT server permanently records cameras on RAID-protected hard disks, ensuring no vital shot is missed. All XT channels are reversible, and can be used as inputs or outputs in SD or HD, depending on the production requirements.
