Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder Bursts Premium Media Processing Performance with New Elastic Architecture

Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for broadcasters and content professionals, today announced Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder, a new SaaS-based, high-quality media processing service with robust media packaging and distribution capabilities for post-production and broadcast workflows. The solution includes every feature from the on-premises version of Dalet AmberFin, with tools beyond simple media conversions, ensuring media professionals have access to image scaling, standards conversions, cut/splice, caption conversion, audio normalization, localization versioning, IMF creation and submission, and HDR conversions.

Unique among elastic cloud transcoders, Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder can be accessed via a public cloud managed service environment, or deployed as a scalable container-based service inside a customer’s existing private cloud infrastructure. The high-performance transcode service, which supports a wide range of formats, takes a factory-like approach to managing media conversion projects from small-scale post-production operations to larger media enterprises, with the highest degree of quality and economy.

“Like the well known Dalet AmberFin on-premises transcoder and workflow orchestration platform, the Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder service will convert and package just about any file format, managing complexities, such as HDR processing, loudness normalization and caption conversions,” states Eric Carson of Dalet. “It’s the same great set of features running in an elastic, serverless architecture designed to optimize resources and cost for customers who require burst capacity, a native cloud presence, usage-based pricing, or all of the above.”

Eric, who serves as General Manager for Dalet on the West Coast US and Canada studio and post-production, television networks, sports and news operations markets, is bringing his expertise in global file packaging and delivery to help drive the Dalet AmberFin business and product development roadmap.

“Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder gives customers more choices on how they want to best manage their media operations. Since there is no need to port conversion profiles or workflows, customers can use existing workflows fully in the cloud or create a hybrid framework without ever compromising on quality. We’ve included the Cloud Transcoder capability directly in the Dalet AmberFin Workflow designer, so that our customers can be up and running in the cloud on day one, without involving a professional services team to move, test and debug media conversions,” adds Eric. “In the current environment, the ability to move from on-premises to the cloud without disruption is key for just about every client. It’s a new level of mobility and agility for media processing projects.”

Feature highlights include:

SaaS Offering, controllable from the Dalet AmberFin Workflow Engine and via REST API

Elastic scaling in a managed service or within an existing VPC

Supports all industry standard codecs, plus HDR and Dolby Vision

API-first approach enables customers to use Dalet AmberFin on its own or inside a larger work order or MAM system, including Dalet Galaxy five or the Ooyala Flex Media Platform, now part of Dalet

Fully compatible with existing Dalet AmberFin transcode profiles

Easily balance transcode volume between on-premises and cloud, controlling both from the same workflow engine

Monthly tier-based subscription with cost per minute pricing

Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder is supported globally by Dalet’s professional services and customer support teams who can assist with workflow development, including scripting and API integration within a wide range of media environments.

Gigcasters Achieves Broadcast Quality Live Streaming with the Zixi OnAir Mobile App

Gigcasters, a live streaming engineering company, has seen mobile production increase during the pandemic and witnessed first-hand the benefits of higher frequency, lower cost productions using Zixi’s OnAir app infrastructure. The company first tried live video delivery remotely using laptops and WebRTC, but found the reliability of the feed was not good, and packet loss and image quality were insufficient. Once the Zixi OnAir app was quickly enabled on local production teams’ mobile phones, getting a broadcast-quality feed was easy.
