CyBC Employs Dalet Media Life For Broadcast Archives

News Image
Dalet Digital Media Systems has announced that Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation (CyBC) has employed its Dalet Media Life to improve the management of its broadcast archives.

Powered by the Dalet Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) platform, the CyBC archive offers a unified repository of assets that is directly connected to production, content preparation and content delivery workflows. Leading the overall design, system integration and implementation was Dalet business partner, Pierides TechnoSystems Ltd.

"CyBC required a sustainable broadcast archive and has deployed Dalet Media Life to meet and manage this need," explains Ben Davenport, director of marketing, Dalet. "As part of the project, there is a strong focus on importing and structuring existing metadata and media files coming from different systems. The Dalet MAM platform will facilitate this as well as integrate with current production and playout systems, giving CyBC the ability to better manage and share legacy, current and future content."

Serving as the content hub for radio, news, sports and commercial broadcasts, CyBC archives span several decades and contain video, audio, books and documents stored on discs, videotapes and siloed storage systems.

The new enterprise workflow leverages advanced metadata management and automation capabilities to facilitate the complexities of transcoding content, propagating metadata, tracking assets, and distributing media. Dalet metadata sets, as defined by CyBC bespoke business rules, capture extensive asset details, structure content access, and assign content to the appropriate archive tier, optimising the storage and archive infrastructure.

"Making the switch to a tapeless archive that can be accessed by all departments is key to our strategy," explains Yioula Kyriacou, engineer, Radio & TV Studios, CyBC. "Not only are we seeking to rationalize workflow and maximise operational efficiencies by migrating to file-based, we intend to synchronize our access in a way that optimizes our ability to re-purpose archival content. Those requirements led us to demand an enterprise level MAM solution with proven integrity in a broadcast operation and one that would interface perfectly with our existing systems. Dalet Media Life is that platform."

Twelve Dalet Brio broadcast servers support multiple archive ingest scenarios including a large legacy content migration project. The underlying Dalet Galaxy MAM platform generates metadata-rich content and associated proxies that are stored centrally, while the federated search engine and production tools improve retrieving, enriching and re-purposing CyBC archival assets.

Through a standard web browser, CyBC staff can browse production storage and archives, make shot selections, and storyboard packages using low-resolution proxies. Dalet ensures the corresponding high-resolution media is associated with shot lists and pushed to third-party systems for further editing or distribution.

To ensure content continuity among third-party systems, Dalet Media Life integrates with the CyBC online, nearline and offline storage systems from Harmonic, NetApp and Oracle/FrontPorch. The Dalet Xtend module facilitates access for Adobe Premiere CC editors, maintaining genealogy and metadata inheritance across postproduction activities.
