“Media asset management based systems are paving the way for broadcasters and content producers to operate much more cost effectively. In the current economical context, investing in technology based on true performance gains and proven cost reductions is even more important,”comments Arnaud Elnecave, Managing Director, Dalet Asia-Pacific.“Beyond media asset management, the DaletPlus infrastructure is designed to streamline entire workflows, automating redundant and manual tasks while simultaneously providing users with powerful desktop production tools in custom contextual workspaces that guarantee more efficiency and drastically improve collaboration. Metadata is consistently tracked, while back office operations are fully transparent to the user, making the use of media files ubiquitous across the entire workflow.”
