Post house Colortime of Burbank, California has installed a Dalet Galaxy platform to provide workflow automation and media asset management.
Colortime specializes in feature film and television episodic editorial, dailies, VFX, color correction and content management services for a global customer base. Like many post facilities, Colortime is faced with an increasing number of versions to produce while simultaneously reducing the time to deliver those versions to various content channels.
“We are managing a massive amount of content for a growing client base and required a solution that would provide both content organization features and automation capabilities with high scalability. We found the Dalet Galaxy platform delivers on all of these needs,” said Moshe Barkat, CEO of Colortime. “For the many clients and brands that we work with, it is critical that the content is organized in a manner that allows both Colortime and the client, or even the client’s client, to efficiently access it and distribute it in any format they require during or after post.”
He added, “Dalet Galaxy will serve as the foundation to efficiently organize and easily retrieve the vast amount of files we store across post-production storage servers and archives. It will also allow us to simplify distribution, by creating automation profiles for the many transcode and package assembly jobs we do at Colortime, saving us quite a bit of time, whether it is a final file delivery or pulling content from the archive in a particular format that a client needs.”
“From workgroup to enterprise implementations, Dalet continues to prove that its renowned MAM and media workflow technology is capable of assisting customers not only in broadcast operations, but also in multi-screen distribution and post-production,” said Simon Adler, general manager, West Coast USA & Canada, Dalet. “Our continued investments in R&D allow our offer to remain flexible and constantly adapt to new market demands. As the chain between content producers and the audiences keeps getting more integrated and faster, post-production and media services facilities have a tremendous new business opportunity to grasp, provided they build their operations on top of the right technology foundation. We see this project as a key reference in this new generation.”
