A Focus on 6 Key Workflows
Dalet Galaxy is the common and unique platform to address all Dalet workflow solutions for News, Sports, Program Preparation, Radio, long-form Production and Archives. Highly flexible, scalable and reliable, it incorporates five key components:
1) A centralized multimedia content catalogue
At the core is a unique central content catalogue that stores all kind of multimedia content (images, videos, audios, rundowns, metadata, graphic objects, etc.). Customized and contextual metadata forms for cataloguing, as well as indexation tools including glossaries and thesauri ensure that content is better referenced, making searches of the content catalogue and archives more efficient. All assets and metadata, including archived items, are immediately available for fast production and multiplatform distribution.
2) Back-office media and metadata services
Dalet Galaxy minimizes the amount of work needed for day-to-day operations by providing a wide range of back-office services such as media services (transcoding, auto quality control, purge and conformation) and metadata services. Exceptional metadata handling across systems, including bi-directional inheritance of rights information, genealogy and descriptive locators eliminate repetitive data entries and facilitate collaboration. Thanks to intelligent tools, Dalet Galaxy expertly manages data exchange and allows for better collaboration between multisite organizations.
3) A BPM workflow engine to orchestrate workflows
The workflow engine automates both back-office and user tasks. On the back-office side, it enables administrators to graphically model workflows. On the user side, it streamlines user workflow by providing intuitive tasks lists that drive them in their every day operations while managers access a wide range of business and technical reports.
4) A third-party integration framework thanks to Open IT Architecture
