ATG Danmon, one of Europe’s most experienced broadcast systems integrators, announces that ABS Broadcast has chosen Dalet AmberFin high quality transcoding and file-player software at the core of its broadcast playout facility in west London.
« A very large proportion of content from our clients arrives as files, either on couriered storage media or, more commonly now, online, » comments ABS Broadcast founder and CEO Sass Jahani. « The challenge was to find an efficient way to augment our existing infrastructure so that we could transcode files for playout of content from and to various codecs and wrappers. » Dalet’s Amberfin transcoding platform was chosen after a careful study of the available technologies. It incorporates ingest, mastering, quality control and review functions which can all be accessed via a single graphic user interface.
« AmberFin Play enables us to review shared assets at any point in the workflow, » adds Mukund Patel, Head of Technology & Engineering. « We are running the software on hardware located in our server room and controlled from the operations control room. The AmberFin modules in combination have proved a highly effective and successful solution to our file-creation and workflow requirements. »
« I am very pleased that Amberfin’s transcoding and file player platforms are able to provide ABS Broadcast with a complete file preparation solution for their playout operation, » says Chris Elson, ATG Danmon Product Sales Manager. « These platforms meet the demands of a 24/7 operation whilst maintaining the highest image quality and workflow efficiency.«
