Dalet Adds Innovative IT And Broadcast Monitoring Technology

At the IBC 2008 exhibition, held in Amsterdam from September 12 - 16, Dalet Digital Media Systems will showcase the new Dalet Dashboard application, which
seamlessly integrates with Dalet Enterprise Edition, Dalet News Suite, Dalet Media Library and Dalet Radio Suite.
Based on award-winning technology from open source web infrastructure management provider, Hyperic Inc., Dalet Dashboard offers system operators and administrators comprehensive analysis tools for monitoring and managing the performance of Dalet solutions across the entire workflow.
More than a standard IT monitoring system, Dalet Dashboard incorporates the language and concepts of broadcast into the system giving administrators and users the ability to swiftly interpret, analyze and respond with immediate results.
Visitors to IBC 2008 can see Dalet Dashboard on stand 9.D28.
"The new Dalet Dashboard offers that added layer of management and system-wide control broadcasters are looking for in mission critical – 7x24 environments. Broadcasters and content producers have more confidence that their productions are operating at maximum efficiency," comments Stephane Guez, chief technology officer, Dalet.
"Joining forces with Hyperic to develop the Dashboard gave us proven technology with phenomenal agility and versatility. The end result is an immense value add for our customers who wish to have that added level of security and control."
"We're pleased that Dalet recognized that Hyperic's broad monitoring and management capabilities - built on a highly scalable, open, and extensible platform - could be easily tailored to meet the industry-specific requirements of Dalet's broadcasting customer base," said Ryan Morgan, co-founder and chief software architect at Hyperic.
"The combination of Dalet's knowledge and vision for the broadcast market with our technology and domain expertise enabled us to jointly deliver the Hyperic-powered Dalet Dashboard in a matter of weeks."
Dalet customers can add the Dalet Dashboard to the existing Dalet workflow or include it in their new deployments. Feature highlights and benefits include;
  • System-wide IT and broadcast analysis tools that adds a layer of system visibility across the entire Dalet-driven workflow. Administrators and operators can manage the system as a whole from the top down optimizing back office processes and server/storage load balancing
  • Built-in performance tools and measurement metrics provide critical status updates that increase the level of support administrators can provide
  • Simplified data reporting, logs, IT metrics, health reports provide administrators key measurement data for fine tuning controls for both multi-site and single site operations
  • Dashboard gives administrators live views into specific aspects of
    the Dalet system; enabling users to analyze in-depth details of a specific step at any point in the workflow
