About Dalet Sports Factory

Dalet Sports Factory manages the challenges of fast-paced, live event and post-game coverage by leveraging the powerful MAM capabilities of Dalet Enterprise Edition with purpose-built sports logging, clipping and replay tools. The combination produces a cohesive, high-speed workflow that delivers winning results.


Enterprise MAM Core

The Media Asset Management platform in Dalet Sports Factory “glues” together the different components of the production chain, delivering a streamlined workflow with content enriched every step of the way. There’s no struggle finding shots, no redundant logging or repeating mark-ins and outs. Metadata entered during logging and highlight creation reside with the media; the intelligent search engine in Sports Factory drills down to return the right clips so operators can quickly repurpose content for broadcast, online or mobile use. Archives are also connected directly to the production, giving post-production significant boosts in efficiency.


Purpose-built Sports Production Tools

Dalet Sports Factory includes specialized tools that get the job done quickly and efficiently—fast, one-button logging with Dalet Sports Logger; highlights, playlist creation and playback using Dalet Hilites Espresso; and instant replays with Dalet Media Replay. Dalet Sports Factory is configurable for any sport, from basketball, football and baseball to hockey, tennis and volleyball.


Seamless Integration with NLEs

Integrations with industry-standard sports systems and NLEs, including Final Cut Pro and Avid, provide a smooth and uninterrupted workflow from production to post. With media accessible through any Dalet or Web client, Sports Factory enables collaboration among disparate workgroups.
