Dalet, a technology and service provider for media-rich organisations, has enhanced its Dalet AmberFin enterprise media processing platform.
Significant performance gains and a new browser interface keeps Dalet AmberFin ahead of new industry demands towards higher quality on more devices and more flexible workflows. Built-in support for technology from audio normalisation specialists Emotion Systems ensures that audio output is optimised for global delivery to multiple listening environments.
Dalet AmberFin helps creatives deliver on their original artistic intent, while studios, broadcasters and OTT providers will benefit from a scalable transcode and workflow engine with excellent image and captioning accuracy.
“The rapid evolution of digital cinema and video technology has given us images that are stunningly good. 4K resolution, HDR and immersive audio are not only appreciated by today’s viewers but expected too,” said Eric Carson, Director, Dalet AmberFin Product Strategy.
“Viewing screens, including smartphones, can reveal image quality – good and bad – with forensic precision. Consequently, it’s more important than ever that the original image quality achieved by a film director or TV producer is preserved for audiences to experience as intended.
“We are committed to keeping Dalet AmberFin on the forefront of media processing with continued improvements in speed and usability both on-premises and in the cloud.”
The new capabilities include:
- Enhancements to the Dalet AmberFin transcoding engine provide, on average, a 30% increase in throughput.
- A new web-based conversion profile editor provides engineers a modern interface for managing day-to-day configurations.
- Emotion System’s technology enhance Dalet AmberFin’s video conversion capabilities with loudness correction and global delivery compliance.
Every feature of the Dalet AmberFin platform, including the improvements in the latest release (v11.9), are available both on-premises and in the Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder Service.
Dalet AmberFin customers can control their on-premises and cloud transcoding resources from the same workflow engine and API, and natively use the same conversion profiles and workflows for both fixed and elastic capacity, without the use of a cloud port or service team.
When coupled with Dalet’s content production, management and distribution solutions, Dalet AmberFin becomes a powerful transcoding and media orchestration platform, ensuring that the right content is available at the highest quality, properly wrapped, and all as part of an automated and dependable process.
Carson said: “For many of our clients, media processing is only part of the equation. Packaging for mass distribution is often a requirement.
“Dalet AmberFin, combined with Dalet Flex and Dalet Galaxy five, brings a much needed, high-quality transcoding and precision packaging solution for global distribution encoding requirements.”
Dalet empowers media-rich organisations to transform their production and distribution workflows – accelerating media operations, maximising collaboration and creating higher value from content.
