Paris, France (September 18, 2014)—Brazil’s TV Globo is placing Dalet Media Life, based on the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) platform, within its entertainment archive.
TV Globo produces around 2,400 hours of entertainment annually and reaches 99.5percent of the Brazilian population through its network of 122 owned and affiliated TV stations. The network's international operations include seven pay-per-view TV channels and a production and distribution division that distributes domestic sports and entertainment content to more than 190 countries around the world. The organization's studio production base is located in Jacarepaguá, Rio de Janeiro, known locally as Projac.
Sony Professional Services integrated and architected the solution at Projac to extend TV Globo's file-based workflow from ingest into archive. Sony selected the Dalet Media Life solution, which includes a broadcast-specific Business Process Management workflow engine, advanced production and media preparation tools, and a single and centralized content repository for housing multimedia content. The complete solution also includes Dalet Brio for ingest acquisition and QC playback as well as Dalet AmberFin for transcoding.
The Dalet platforms interlock with a number of third-party tools to underpin production end-to-end. These include integration with Avid Interplay and Avid Symphony for production, with Tektronix Cerify for file-based QC review, and with Front Porch DIVA and Sony’s Optical Disc Archive System.
“This is Dalet's first major deal in Brazil,” says Julien Decaix, general manager, Americas, Dalet. “[I]n alliance with Sony and TV Globo, we are able to manage all digital files and all associated metadata as well as legacy tape content, on ingest and throughout the asset's entire lifecycle, including export for all internal and international distribution and onwards to the Sony Optical Disk Archive.”
