Fast, Simple Deployment
DaletPlus is not a system of several inter-connected islands, which is a source of many problems with other solutions. It is a comprehensive, end-to-end system that can coherently and transparently:
* Control a SeaChange Broadcast MediaCluster (BMC) for ingest. DaletPlus provides an intuitive scheduling template on multiple channels to automate the recording of incoming feeds and live events on the SeaChange server. Authorized users can schedule recordings days, weeks or even months in advance. A single click initiates manual recordings.
* Create low-resolution proxies through software-based conversion.
* Provide a user-friendly environment.
* Control background data transfers between the SeaChange BMC and BML using standard IT online and offline storage platforms.
* Reliable On-Air Playout: DaletPlus OnAir supports both automated playout and multi-channel A/B roll manual assist
Key benefits of the DaletPlus/SeaChange Newsroom Solutions:
* Modular: Ingest, logging, browsing, media asset management, scheduling, and playout components can be individually implemented to meet the requirements of any newsroom environment.
* Price performance: Television stations save on infrastructure and operation costs by implementing a system that runs on standard IT solutions.
* Scalable: The DaletPlus/SeaChange combination is fully scalable, accommodating environments ranging from a single user to several thousand users.
