Italian football league Serie A is employing technology from Dalet in its new production centre in Lissone.
Dalet is working with Italian partners EI Towers and CVE on the project, which leverages Dalet’s solutions for workflow automation and content management, increasing production value for 400-plus games and delivering in UHD and 1080p formats over a full IP infrastructure.
“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,” said Piercarlo Invernizzi, CTO, EI Towers.
Dalet’s enterprise media workflow solution, Dalet Galaxy five, serves as the control layer for handling incoming transmissions from stadiums and managing that content across the production centre’s production storage, nearline storage and archives.
The underlying Dalet media asset management platform and workflow engine tracks metadata and orchestrates key workflows including game content captured across 100 channels of Dalet Brio IP ingest as well as distribution of digital content packages to main broadcasters, media partners, telecommunication companies and teams using WEBPortals and direct contribution to the stadium during the live events via Dalet Brio IP output.
Integrated Dalet production tools provide editing and highlight production with remote collaboration from stadium to production centre made possible by a secure, hybrid configuration, said Dalet.
The Serie A production centre encompasses 2,400 square metres, featuring editing stations, post production rooms, master control room, content control room, and a room dedicated to infographics.
Dalet Professional Services collaborated with EI Towers and CVE to deliver more than 100 ingest channels, 12 playout channels, online production, nearline and archive storage, as well as editing and highlight production applications, along with Dalet MAM workflow design and training for the centre’s technicians and operators in a month. Dalet Professional Services along with business partner CVE also provide Lega Serie A with first-line, on-the-ground support services.
