Built on the media processing capabilities of Dalet AmberFin, new Dalet xN IMF Maker service reduces complexity and costs for multi-version content publishing for program prep workflows; available as an on-demand service via Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

 

Dalet Digital Media Systems has simplified the creation of IMF bundles for international distribution with the release of Dalet xN IMF Maker, which is available today as an on-demand service through Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Leveraging the world-class media orchestration and processing capabilities of the Dalet AmberFin platform to aid complex program preparation and versioning workflows, Dalet xN IMF Maker is the first and only solution on the market for generating comprehensive IMF-compliant packages on demand and inexpensively.

 

“Dalet AmberFin is the reference platform for media processing when it comes to orchestrating the creation of IMF-compliant bundles for international distribution,” comments Matthieu Fasani, senior product manager at Dalet. “We have wrapped the powerful AmberFin capabilities and our extensive knowledge of IMF workflows into an easy-to-use, on-demand service backed by the high-performance infrastructure of both AWS and Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Just specify the content and metadata, and within a few clicks, Dalet xN IMF Maker will create the bundle you require. It’s that effortless.”

 

IMF bundles generated by Dalet xN IMF Maker support all the advanced features of IMF, including captions/subtitles, audio labelling and IMF metadata insertion in MXF. Fasani adds, “What sets Dalet apart is the breadth and depth of our IMF offering for program preparation. Should you have a constant demand, you can build a fully orchestrated API-driven IMF workflow with Dalet AmberFin on or off premise or, for less frequent need, leverage the app-style Dalet xN IMF Maker. Both options will give you IMF bundles using industry-leading AmberFin video transcoding technology, ensuring your JPEG-2000 files are flawless, regardless if they are created from ProRes, XDCAM, or other industry formats.”

 

With a few clicks, users can specify the source files (video, audio, captions) and the metadata (core metadata, audio layout, caption languages) then trigger the workflow. Dalet xN IMF Maker will retrieve the information and automatically generate IMF bundles based on the provided data that are compliant with the IMF standard. Each step of the workflow can be monitored via the well designed, web-based interface.

 

“Media companies required to generate IMF bundles do not need to understand the complex details of IMF, as the xN IMF Maker handles the entire process for them, automatically,” explains Fasani. “In addition to the technical convenience, these facilities do not need to invest in expensive single task products to generate IMF bundles. Instead, they can use the on-demand IMF Maker and ‘pay as you use’ when needed.”
