Fox Selects Dalet For FS1

Media Asset Management Platform in Play for New Sports Network 4/07/2013 8:24 AM Eastern

Fox has chosen Dalet Sports Factory as its production and media asset management system for the upcoming launch of Fox Sports 1.

Technology from Dalet Digital Media Systems will provide the MAM tools to manage the channel’s workflows and content—from ingest through production to on-air broadcast and archiving. Dalet Brio servers will be used for nearly a hundred channels of video ingest.

“We need the kind of robust and flexible MAM that Dalet Sports Factory provides to handle the scale and complexity of FS1,” noted Andrea Berry, senior vp of media services at Fox Networks Engineering & Operations. “We’ll be producing huge volumes of content for this new channel and Dalet’s metadata management capability will be very important.”

Set to debut on Saturday, Aug. 17, Fox Sports 1 will be available in over 90 million homes and is planning to produce nearly 5,000 hours of live event, news and original programming annually.
Dalet will be showing the system at the 2013 NAB conference in Las Vegas between April 8 and 11.
