MediaStar 4K UHD IPTV and Media Player (Models 782-SL-POE & 782-DS)
MediaStar Digital Media Players are the professional solution for your entire IPTV, Digital Signage and Digital Media delivery requirements.
The 782-SL can decode H.265, H.264, HLS and MPEG-2 network streams and play locally stored video files from onboard memory, so that a combination of live streamed network video /audio and file-based media can be displayed.
The unit supports many video formats that can be presented at full screen or scaled to size. For example, a 4K HEVC or H.264 video can be played out, or multiple 1080p videos can be simultaneously displayed.
Video can be stored and accessed locally from flash, a remote RTSP video server or played from ‘Live’ IP multicast network streams.
Using hardware accelerated HTML5 rendering in a full 4K UHD screen configuration, a displayed page can simultaneously show diverse forms of media within a mosaic of different dynamic zones. Each of these can contain video playout, RSS text feeds, smooth scrolling tickers, clocks and graphics widgets as well as HTML web pages with video tags, centralized cookie updating and managed login support.
The unit can also decode AES or Pro Idiom encrypted media and offers optional HDCP Pro capability enabling the 782-SL to play HDCP protected media assets held within the MediaStar ecosystem, offering link security to valuable and confidential content. For further information see the MediaStar guide to HDCP.
The 782 SL also has a front panel HDMI video and Line/Mic audio input, enabling local inputs to be displayed at full screen or within a selected zone as part of a composite image. This functionality can be used for creating multi-zone signage streams, lecture capture or for broadcasting live presentations.
A comprehensive I/O package includes RS232, HDMI-CEC, Infra-Red and USB connectivity. This enables local operations such as display control, programmable contact closures, keyboard and mouse interaction, IP command pass through for 3rd party device control and external alarm audio mute. In addition, there is an IR Blaster function. The unit will also email proof of play reports and send SNMP traps if required.
782- SL models can operate networked under the control of the MediaStar Media Manager software suite (Model 462) enabling a system administrator to configure an extensive range of time based and user selected media playout controls.
Additionally, the 782-SL-DS can be programmed with MediaStar Creator (Model 478) a fully featured content creation program for MediaStar system users to easily design, compile and aggregate their own original branded signage content for display on any number of screens and display points around an organisation or campus.
The 782-SL is designed and built in the United Kingdom. With its compact size, low power consumption, maintenance free operation and software future proofing it is ideally suited for both large scale distributed applications and simple single screen deployments. Please see model options above.
