Amsterdam, The Netherlands (September 12, 2007)--At IBC 2007, Dalet Digital Media Systems presented the integration of Digidesign Pro Tools with Dalet Radio Suite through the use of MetaPlug Broadcast 2.0, an Audio Suite plug-in developed by Creative Network Design (CND).
MetaPlug Broadcast 2.0 for Dalet Radio Suite can save complex mixes with associated metadata to a Dalet Content Catalogue. These mixes are then instantly available to all Dalet users. As such, this integration merges post production workflows based on Pro Tools with integrated production, scheduling and play-out workflows powered by Dalet Radio Suite, as well as with digital archives based on Dalet Media Library.
"The introduction of MetaPlug Broadcast 2.0 for Dalet Radio Suite represents a significant step forward in digital broadcast workflow. Today's broadcast professionals want complete integration of their digital media assets. They need instant and seamless upload capability for their work, be it commercials, news stories, or music," said Markus Schmidt, founder and CEO of Creative Network Design. "With MetaPlug Broadcast for Dalet Radio Suite, users can send complex audio files with metadata from Pro Tools to Dalet. This has been long sought-after by many Digidesign and Dalet broadcast customers, and we can now offer this integration as a secure AudioSuite plug-in."
Prior to the Dalet integration with MetaPlug Broadcast, Pro Tools users had to undertake multiple steps to hand off their sessions: bounce to disk, upload to an FTP site, import the file and then manually enter metadata into the Dalet Asset Manager. The new MetaPlug Broadcast 2.0 for Dalet Radio Suite reduces this upload process to a single step from within Pro Tools itself. The entire media file, including metadata, is populated in the Dalet Content Catalogue and available across the entire music production and playout workflow.
