Dalet has announced that the latest release of the Dalet AmberFin media processing platform is the first software-based transcoding asset management system to include Dolby Vision technologies, a leading HDR technology for media professionals, studios and streaming service providers.
In addition to Dolby Vision and a raft of new software-only features, Dalet AmberFin can also be enhanced with hardware acceleration tools such as the M820L HEVC encoder plugin card from SoC (System On a Chip) specialist Socionext.
Dalet’s AmberFin for media processing capabilities enable automated Dolby Vision mastering and distribution workflows that generate outputs from IMF, through broadcast, cable and satellite packages to OTT HLS and DASH bundles.
Dalet AmberFin's file outputs can vary in packaging sophistication from simple MP4s through to complex IMF packages that are automatically synthesized from collections of input files and automation instructions.
Jean-Christophe Coin, CEO Post-House VDM said: "By integrating Dalet AmberFin with our Dalet Galaxy MAM platform we have managed to build the content factory that we always dreamed of. Work orders for original and versioned content flow quickly and efficiently through our facility with human operators lending creative skills where required and automation fulfilling all other processes".
On the complexity of today's workflows, he added, "There are more and more variations in the complexity of a modern title. When it was just SD or HD life was simple. Today we track different HDR variants and multiple languages, compliance and re-versioned variants for the large number of platforms that a single title might appear on."
