BBC Wales introduces Dalet Galaxy across new media facility

Dalet Galaxy will offer a centralized content repository and provide tools to orchestrate workflows

Dalet announces that BBC Wales has selected the enterprise Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) and Orchestration platform to facilitate all workflows and asset management requirements at its new media facility located in Cardiff, Wales. Once deployed, Dalet Galaxy will offer a centralized content repository and provide tools to orchestrate workflows and media processes across production, news, studios and delivery departments. The massive installation design and multi-year deployment will be managed by Dalet Professional Services.

 

“BBC Wales is pleased to be working with Dalet to provide an asset management system for our new home in Central Square, Cardiff.  Dalet was chosen after a very competitive process, and will provide an important part of the technology solution at Central Square within a state of the art broadcast centre.  We are looking forward to the successful delivery of the project,” comments Gareth Powell, chief operating officer, BBC Wales.

 

As the core media hub, Dalet Galaxy will be deployed as the cornerstone of the new digital facility. All systems and sub-systems deployed in future phases will connect to this hub. Dalet Workflow Engine will enable the BBC to orchestrate a combination of user tasks and media services ranging from ingest, transcoding and QC, to logging, editing, media packaging and distribution. A workflow designer interface allows users to model business processes, picking from a palette of stencils operations such as user tasks and notifications, media and metadata services, gateways, timeout and error management, and much more.

 

The comprehensive and open Dalet Galaxy API will allow the BBC to tightly connect storage and infrastructure technologies, media services and post-production applications, and traffic and business platforms, orchestrating a workflow that tracks assets and associated metadata across the media enterprise.

 

We have been working with the BBC on a multitude of projects for more than fifteen years,” comments Adrian Smith, regional manager, Dalet UK. “Dalet Galaxy’s flexible architecture provides a future-proof framework on which the BBC can evolve to meet new requirements and production needs that arise over coming months and even years. The Dalet Professional Services team’s experience in managing such enterprise rollouts will help them navigate the juggernaut of this multi-year, large-scale deployment.

 

The new facility adopts the SMPTE 2110 standards

In addition to Dalet Galaxy, Dalet will be supplying a new Dalet HTML application for simplified management of camera card ingests and its Dalet Brio video server. Supporting both SDI and IP, Dalet Brio ingest and playout platform adheres to the SMPTE 2110 standards, allowing broadcasters to step into the future of IP while retaining the security of SDI.
