Dalet has unveiled a remote production solution that enables newsrooms and media organisations to carry out content production and distribution operations amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dalet Galaxy xCloud is a secure and scalable SaaS solution, extending on-premises production and enabling friction-free remote editing and collaboration from home to hub.
The solution enables Dalet customers to remotely use Dalet OneCut, Dalet WebSpace and Dalet On-the-Go from their home-based devices. Adobe Premiere Pro-based editing workflows are also supported through the Dalet Xtend plugin.
The company has additionally created a dedicated site called Dalet Connect, aimed at helping media professionals discover Dalet product offerings and online happenings, enabling fast demo, meeting and webinar bookings.
“Today, more than ever, our news customers play a critical role in keeping communities informed and connected,” said Kevin Savina, director of product strategy, Dalet. “Our tools form a foundation for creating and delivering vital news and information to millions of viewers. It’s imperative that our customers’ operations continue without disruption.
“We have designed Dalet Galaxy xCloud to give our customers maximum mobility when they need it most, whether they are at the office or facility, at an offsite production or in the field, working with freelancers or working from home, as many of us are today.”
Verimatrix takes Waoo to the Cloud
Verimatrix has announced that Danish internet provider Waoo has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for IPTV, Verimatrix Multi-DRM and Verimatrix Analytics.
The Cloud-based VCAS content and revenue security platform provides two-way protection for premium content on Waoo’s IPTV network, according to Verimatrix.
Meanwhile the Verimatrix Multi-DRM reduces complexity and allows the operator to retain full control of its service offerings and subscriber relationships.
Cloud-native Verimatrix Analytics unifies data across Waoo’s IPTV and OTT networks and end devices to help optimise multi-network video service delivery and the subscriber viewing experience, the company added.
Waoo CTO Ole Ørndrup said: “Unifying our security and analytics platforms with a single partner gives us better economies of scale along with streamlined management of the solutions – via the power of the Cloud. We believe in the Verimatrix product roadmap to help future-proof our networks and deliver the best experience for our subscribers.”
SUPER RTL rolls out TOGGO with 3SS
German children’s broadcaster SUPER RTL has deployed 3 Screen Solutions (3SS) technology for the launch of TOGGO, its AVoD kids’ service that went live on 8th April.
TOGGO will see a staged service launch, starting with a 3SS-engineered Fire TV app, to be followed by a range of other apps. TOGGO will progressively be rolled out for audiences in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
3SS’ 3READY Framework allowed the initial phase of the TOGGO rollout to be completed within six months. 3READY Control Center provides SUPER RTL with a customer experience management tool that gives real-time control over presentation of content, features and branding of all apps all from one location.
The 3SS project team worked with SUPER RTL’s in-house team, who reportedly expressed appreciation for the transparent and collaborative communications among all parties.
