Dalet Brio Provides Smarter Video I/O

France TV, FOX Network Group Europe, MediaCorp and San Jose Sharks among the many media organizations to harness the advanced capabilities of the world’s most intelligent high-density I/O platform

Dalet is demonstrating at NAB 2016 (booth SL3905) the smart I/O operations and flexible SDI/IP-based capabilities that have drawn technically savvy broadcasters from around the world to its intelligent Dalet Brio platform. In a market that is moving increasingly away from proprietary hardware-based video servers towards software-based solutions that focus on the task of managing the conversion of streams-to-files and files-to-streams, the convenient web-based administration with advanced tools for ingest, logging and studio production make Dalet Brio the ideal solution for managing complex multi-channel recordings, conversions and multiplatform playout scenarios.



With the move to virtualized infrastructure, I/O video servers that can take advantage of the new technology opportunities and manage streams-to-files and files-to-streams are part of the strategic conversation,” states Matthieu Fasani, Dalet Brio Product Manager at Dalet. “Today, Dalet customers utilizing Brio not only benefit from the highly convenient web-based administration and extensive codec and format support, but they are also ensured that their I/O operations are IP and cloud ready, giving them the best of all worlds.”


Taming the Wild

Advanced media organizations require an I/O solution that can adapt to new production infrastructures and manage content recordings, conversions and playout to/from a number of devices for highly dynamic events, from the U.S. Primaries to opening day for the New York Yankees. The Dalet Brio suite of applications – Multicam Manager, Logger and Media Navigator – are purpose-built tools that allow broadcasters to expand the capabilities of the I/O Brio server to include multi-camera control, comprehensive logging, and studio production ingest and playout.

“Dalet Brio allows customers to improve the way they manage the entire I/O operation,” comments Fasani. “For example, the metadata logging capabilities of Dalet Logger significantly enrich content recorded into any MAM, PAM or CMS system, which in turn optimizes productions. Same for content recorded to the cloud. Content and logs become available to anyone around the globe, opening up opportunities for new workflows and revenue streams.”


Tried and True Investment That Has Been Put to the Test Globally

Dalet Brio is an integral part of any media workflow, whether as a standalone product, integrated with third party platforms, or as part of the Dalet Galaxy enterprise-wide solution.  The highly scalable solution allows customers like France TV to easily expand their Dalet Brio installation to meet new business needs.
