Paris, France (September 18, 2006)–Dalet Digital Media Systems announced that it is working with Network Appliance, Inc. to address the broadcast and digital media management markets.
As media production, play-out and archiving move to tapeless environments, media corporations seek media asset management platforms that combine flexible metadata and workflow management with scalable, high-performance enterprise storage systems. The combination of Dalet software solutions and NetApp storage provides a unique solution for implementing such tapeless platforms.
“Broadcast video applications require phenomenal bandwidth and large storage capacities very similar to the requirements of high performance computing systems,” explains Nicolas Hans, director of marketing at Dalet. “Our experience has proved that NetApp storage systems deliver the availability and performance consistently in order to move to truly tapeless environments.”

NetApp is known for simplifying data management with a unified storage platform. Together, NetApp and Dalet solutions provide customers with a highly effective and economical solution for managing digital assets.”
