Dalet announces Openmedia Plug-in Suite

Dalet showcased the new OpenMedia Plug-in Suite at NAB2006. The new suite provides OpenMedia users with ingest and playout capabilities within their system.

The ingest plug-in will allow for placeholder creation and line bookings from OpenMedia into the video server. When source material is recorded using the system’s ingest module, a frame-accurate, low-resolution copy is automatically created, enabling journalists to quickly retrieve source material over a network.

With the OpenMedia Logger, users will have simultaneous access to the same source materials. Other logging features include: user definable markers, text annotations and key word entry with time stamps. Users can also save clips as a new file or export it as an EDL.

The OnAir Plugin module offers an open-standard approach for automated and live-assist playout of video, text and captions. The integration enables OpenMedia users to send rundown instructions as well as retrieve status information about the broadcast. OpenMedia OnAir automatically loads the player and communicates to the video server the playout sequence. It can be integrated with a wide variety of studio devices.
