(Las Vegas NAB, NV--April 13, 2010) Dalet Digital Media Systems and Omneon are advancing their technology partnership by optimizing integration of the Dalet Enterprise Edition News and Sports Production and Media Asset Management (MAM) solution with the Omneon video and storage infrastructure. The joint solution offers an ideal production platform for large-scale organizations such as Time Warner Cable's flagship newsroom NY1 and the multi-lingual newsroom of Voice of America (VOA) which recently deployed Omneon Spectrum video servers and Omneon MediaGrid production storage fully integrated with Dalet Enterprise Edition.
"Dalet has been working with Omneon for a long time now. We have leveraged the full range of functions offered by the powerful Omneon APIs, and collaborated intensively to optimize and certify that the Omneon MediaGrid delivers the high performance required for complex news workflows," said Kevin Savina, Director of Product Management. "Because Dalet provides advanced production features such as edit from live feeds and playout while rendering with many users editing directly from the production storage, it needs high-bandwidth, low latency performance, which the Media Grid offers. This enables us to make transparent to the users the complexity of the underlying infrastructure required for file based workflows."
Designed for content creation, management and delivery, Dalet Enterprise Edition combines leading-edge journalist tools, a solid MAM framework and a powerful workflow engine. It integrates newsroom computer system (NRCS), video production, delivery automation and archiving.
The Omneon video storage and delivery platform, based on the industry-leading Omneon Spectrum media server and high-performance Omneon MediaGrid storage server provides superior performance and reliability for demanding production workflows.
"Dalet has high expectations when it comes to video infrastructure performance and reliability. We are very pleased that we have been able to meet those requirements. The cooperation between the two companies has been great, and the result is an outstanding solution for our customers," said Dave Frederick, Senior Director, Solutions Marketing at Omneon.
Dalet and Omneon are demonstrating their respective solutions at the NAB 2010 show in Las Vegas, NV from April 12th through the 15th on stands SL4720 (Dalet) and N5106 (Omneon).
