France Télévisions has employed Dalet’s Galaxy xCloud to support more than 300 of its journalists as they work from home.
The a Software-as-a-Service offering is a full-featured version of the latest Dalet Galaxy five platform, which uses the Cloud to facilitate end-to-end, remote news production workflows.. The Galaxy xCloud facilitates news production workflows across national channels and the franceinfo rolling news channel. It also supports newsroom editing applications, including Adobe Premiere Pro and Dalet OneCut.
Dalet Galaxy xCloud’s remote editing framework integrates with France Télévisions’ on-premise Dalet Galaxy five system. It supports advanced proxy editing workflows, mixing of central and local content, with proxy content cached locally to eliminate disruptions due to limited bandwidth. Rendering is offloaded to the Dalet Galaxy xCloud system.
France Télévisions is using the Dalet Galaxy xCloud on AWS Cloud, which connects high-resolution file exchange with the on-premises Dalet Galaxy five platform. The broadcast is later expected to move to a hybrid configuration that utilises the Dalet Galaxy xCloud on-premise gateway to manage heavy media processing. Only proxy content will be sent to the Cloud. The hybrid implementation will also support low latency workflows.
