Italian soccer league relies on Dalet solutions
Dalet has announced that the Italian soccer league’s production center, based in Lissone, has used the company’s solutions for sports content management and production processes.
The top-flight Italian football league has consolidated the production, management and distribution of its content into a centralized media infrastructure, increasing the production value of more than 400 matches as well as delivery in progressive UHD and 1080p formats over a complete IP infrastructure. The enterprise deployment is subscription-based to maximize flexibility and control costs.
The company’s Galaxy five solution serves as the control layer to manage incoming streams from the stadiums and manage that content in fast production storage, nearline storage and production center archives.
The underlying media asset management platform and workflow engine tracks metadata and orchestrates key workflows, including match content captured via 100 Dalet Brio IP ingest channels, as well as distribution of digital content packages to major broadcasters, media partners, telcos and teams via WEBPortals and direct contribution to the stadium during live events via Dalet Brio IP output.
“We took on an enormous challenge in building a new production infrastructure in such a short time – not just the workflows, but also a completely new facility in Lissone able to produce highlights, log match metadata and archive the assets. We needed reliable partners that would deliver and Dalet, together with CVE, did just that for the production part of this project. The solution has now been operating successfully for the whole of the season,” comments Piercarlo Invernizzi, CTO, EI Towers.
