What a difference it was being in Hall 8. The long hair and sandals of the visitors from Hall 7 were replaced by more suits and nodding heads of people looking at our solutions in Hall 8. IBC seemed busy this year, there was a real buzz that something's happening in the industry, but no one can tell me what it is. My personal view is that there is no single thing but a combination of elements.

Altering the economics for channel operations

As consumer demand for video increases, the range of delivery models continues to expand. The challenge facing today’s broadcasters and service providers is to select the technology that can keep pace with this explosion in demand, while anticipating future channel delivery infrastructures and behavioral trends. Computer and storage clouds promise to supplement and ultimately replace today’s media factories, but for these implementations to be truly beneficial, the applications and solutions they deploy must be designed to offer maximum flexibility and control.

The challenge across the board for our industry is quite simply to be able to do more, do it better, and do it for less. The reality is that every customer is different and they have their own mix of these issues. So what everyone wants to hear as we approach IBC2014 is how they can work with open, modular, flexible solutions that enable them to do exactly what they want to do.

A Three-Platform Approach: Dalet Galaxy, Dalet Brio and Dalet AmberFin


So far, 2014 has been the year of mergers and acquisitions within the broadcast industry. As previously reported on this blog, not all this M&A activity is driven by the same customer-focused aims. However, in the case of Dalet, our recent strategic acquisition of AmberFin has the customer clearly in mind.

The merging of the two companies enables our new enlarged and enriched company to cover significantly more bases within file-based workflow environments. From IBC2014, Dalet will offer three technology platforms: Dalet Galaxy, Dalet Brio and Dalet AmberFin, leveraging the knowledge and technologies of both companies to deliver a broader and deeper set of solutions.

It’s worth looking under the hood and understanding why this is so important.  For readers that are new to some parts of the Dalet product family, let me shed a little light on these platforms:

The Jenever Convention – What’s New With Dalet at IBC (Part 2)


If you’ve never tried jenever (Dutch gin), you should – it’s the ideal way to end a quiet evening in Amsterdam, or start a louder one. Don’t be expecting a slice of cucumber, ice and tonic though – jenever is nothing like your typical London Dry.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you may also receive our newsletters (if not, email us and we’ll sign you up) – the latest edition of which lists 10 reasons to visit Dalet at the upcoming IBC show (stand 8.B77).  Over the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be using this blog to expand on some of those reasons, starting this week with a focus on Media Asset Management (MAM) and the Dalet Galaxy platform.

An Amsterdam Education! …No, Not That Type of Education

Theater Blog

Maybe it’s a result of having two teachers as parents, but I am passionate about education and, particularly, education in our industry. Technology and innovation move forward so fast in our business that even as a seasoned industry professional it can sometimes be tricky to keep pace. That’s why I’m so excited to be doing something a little different with the Dalet Theater at IBC this year – here’s what we’ve got going on.
