Masstech Group, Dalet Collaborate for Tapeless Production Workflows
At the NAB Show, Masstech Group Inc. and Dalet Digital Media Systems announced a collaboration to optimize implementation of tapeless production workflows. Their joint integration efforts will seek to combine Dalet’s flexible asset management features with Masstech Group’s scalable media lifecycle management framework.
“This collaboration truly brings the best of our joint product offerings,” said Kevin Savina, director of product management at Dalet. “The advanced media management framework offered by MassStore provide the ideal platform for bringing the flexibility of Dalet asset management to large scale broadcast environments that involve numerous Avid editing suites.”
The MassStore WAM Suite provides a media management layer on top of which Dalet Enterprise Edition modular asset management and workflow engine technology can be implemented to give broadcasters and content producers the ability to interact with a centralized content catalogue for a comprehensive range of applications. The integrated system is intended to serve as an enterprise-class unified platform for live and file based-ingest, in stream transcoding, production and news integration, business continuity, content delivery/distribution and portal connectivity.
“Working in cooperation with Dalet, we have expanded the reach of our mutual products” said Cristian Saceanu, director of engineering at Masstech Group Inc. “The combination of digital file based workflow and asset management delivers smooth connectivity between all systems and functional areas within the broadcast operation.”
