This Q&A article is a repost from The Broadcast Bridge website.   Kevin Savina, Product Strategy Director for Dalet, discusses with The Broadcast Bridge important 2017 trends in media asset management – multi-platform distribution, collaboration, workflow orchestration and business intelligence reporting – that broadcasters, facilities and content producers should keep at the forefront of their decision-making. The Broadcast Bridge (TBB): How are changing audience...

“Ultimately, the cloud is the latest example of Schumpeterian creative destruction: creating wealth for those who exploit it; and leading to the demise of those that don’t.” - Joe Weinman, Senior VP at Telx and author of Cloudonomics: The Business Value of Cloud Computing While Joe Weinman’s statement clearly matches the vision of his company, he is far from alone in describing the dramatic changes brought by cloud technology. In fact, most of our customers...

When thinking about improving the ROI from investing in MAM solutions, instead of thinking about managing archives or adapting legacy linear workflows, let’s look from the other direction. Why not start onscreen? On screens? If we could start again, think critically about where better media management workflow really adds the most value in 2016. What do we see? An explosion of video; everywhere. New versions and streams on every screen; anytime. Instead of thinking about the usual angle...

Is there any VTR here? When did you last use a VTR to ingest content? Most of you will answer "a loooong time ago,” but they are still there, in a room corner, hidden by papers. VTRs are not used anymore for ingest but are still needed as players for legacy material. Think about your good old cassette tapes that you put in your Sony Walkman from time to time when you feel nostalgic; no one is using it anymore to record music. Nowadays everybody is using some hardware box with...

Let’s start with a loaded question: is it possible to agree on a single definition for Media Asset Management (MAM) in 2016? I am pretty sure some of you are smiling and might remember this article from the Dalet Academy, where Bruce Devlin received as many definitions as the number of persons surveyed! While all vendors more or less agree on the main goal of a MAM - to allow media professionals to make more and better programs with fewer costs involved - the way that this translates into...

A long time ago in a time in a laboratory far, far away, a small team unpacked a shiny new server and ran their media software. Discovering that they could get standard definition video to decode and encode at almost real time, the transcode market was born. Thanks to Moore’s law and a little performance optimization, things progressed rapidly and, for a little over a decade, the bulk of the transcoding market was all about getting the codecs right. The rise of online services, the move...

We all know that getting the audio right makes the pictures better, don’t we? Anyone who has been to see a movie that has been created for Object Audio like Dolby Atmos will know that there is something special about it. To figure out what that is, let’s rewind a little and see why we might need it. Remember the good old days of mono audio on TV? Then you probably have as much grey hair as I do! Mono audio gives a single channel of sound played back through one or more speakers....
