Singapore (June 20, 2008)--Dalet Digital Media Systems, in conjunction with business partner Challenge Systems, is managing the deployment of the entire media asset management and archiving infrastructure for ABS-CBN Broadcast Corporation, the Philippines' largest media and entertainment company.

Dalet Professional Services worked closely with Challenge Systems to design the enterprise workflow which preserves and digitalizes existing media assets while enabling ABS-CBN to add new media channels such as web and mobile TV; streamlining the entire ingest to archiving process. A completely file-based workflow, the Dalet Enterprise Edition solution will integrate business and broadcast technologies from Masstech, IBM, Exanet, Snell & Wilcox, Apple and Avid to create a highly collaborative media production and distribution environment that optimizes and facilitates processes from scheduling to playout to archive.

"The Dalet system offered us an extensible architecture in which we could modernize our broadcast operation while integrating our existing back office processes and preserving our extensive library of content," comments Raul Bulaong, head of technical operations division of ABS-CBN. The company is principally involved in television and radio broadcasting, as well as the production of television programming for domestic and international audiences and other related businesses.

"The end result is a very innovative media asset management and archiving workflow that allows us to efficiently repackage and redistribute content with optimum flexibility ensuring that the Philippine community can view, engage and interact with ABS-CBN programs via their favorite channel whether it be television, web or mobile media devices," says Bulaong.

The project includes more than 200 days of best practice design, consulting, implementation and training.
