MediaStar Puts Control and Creativity into Digital Signage and Reinforces the Importance of Media Protection and Lower Latency Encoding at Infocomm 2018

Latest News / MediaStar Puts Control and Creativity into Digital Signage and Reinforces the Importance of Media Protection and Lower Latency Encoding at Infocomm 2018

MediaStar Systems, developer of the powerful MediaStar range of IPTV and digital media distribution solutions will be showing the latest version of its digital signage content creation software and new Lower Latency HDMI Encoder with HDCP Pro 2.2 support and compliant solutions at Infocomm (6-8 June, Las Vegas).

Digital signage users looking for the rich creativity of content creation software coupled with full control of their media environment, including capture, manage, storage and display functionality, will benefit from Creator 2.0. This latest update to Cabletime’s class leading, enterprise wide digital signage tool, now features full integration with MediaStar Media Manager to enable easy scheduling and distribution of digital signage pages across the network. In addition, users will be able to add 4K content, video rotation, live web clippings for extra impact, and new-style tickers. 

Also being shown on the MediaStar booth (C3920 in central hall) will be a new low latency HDMI encoder (Model 798), which will offer a faster, more efficient MediaStar blade to add to the current encoder solution. As well as meeting users’ IPTV headend, digital signage and digital media encoding and distribution needs, the

MediaStar 798 encoder will also support HDCP Pro 2.2 content protection across an enterprise network. This will ensure that protected content can be played out onto HDCP-compliant devices and will be a feature of all MediaStar's products during 2018.

“New standards are being introduced that will change the face of the video communications industry, not least in terms of content protection,” commented Shaun Oxenham, CEO at MediaStar. “We are making major enhancement to our hardware and software solutions to ensure we can support our clients’ rights management policies. Infocomm will be an opportunity to discuss these developments further and show how our solutions can maximise content deployment without compromising on the integrity of the content itself.”

Cabletime will be showing its MediaStar IP Re-Caster blade, which converts Multi-cast to Uni-cast and vice versa and earlier this year was declared as ‘SRT Ready’ by the SRT Alliance. This means that it meets criteria that ensure it can optimise streaming performance across unreliable and unpredictable networks without compromising on security and with easy firewall traversal.

The company will also demonstrate RoomStar, its specialist interactive TV and content distribution solution for the global hotel market following its acquisition of US-based Roomio last Spring. The newly enhanced solution, which supports Pro-Idiom decryption in its MediaStar media player products, will be seen for the first time in the US and is now available for US customers.

The MediaStar range provides TV/AV and multimedia distribution and digital signage products primarily for medium to large enterprises, which require future-proof, stable and proven solutions for live TV, corporate communications, multicasts, audio, training and digital signage.
