MediaStar Cloud Gateway (792)

The MediaStar Cloud Gateway provides an IP interface between your on-premise MediaStar hardware and a cloud based Media Manager server.  

Media Manager software is used to configure and monitor your MediaStar system.  This runs on a Media Manager server which has typically been a PC connected to the LAN where the MediaStar system hardware resides.  MediaStar are now offering customers the option of running their Media Manager software on a cloud hosted PC, rather than having to have a physical server on site.

Customers will be provided with ‘ready-to-run’ Media Manager software hosted on our cloud servers.  MediaStar system administrators will have a client application loaded onto their PCs which will provide a direct link to the cloud hosted administration software so they can configure and monitor their MediaStar system.  The cloud hosted Media Manager software will communicate with the on-premise MediaStar hardware on your local LAN using the 792 Cloud gateway device.  

The 792 ‘blade’ will be installed in a MediaStar 770 multi-blade rack or in a 769 single blade chassis.  This single device will be given internet access to talk to the cloud-based Media Manager server, with a single, always-on connection.  The 792 device handshakes with the remote Media Manager server to ensure it has established a secure encrypted link to the correct server only.  All on-premise MediaStar hardware will then communicate with the cloud server through the 792 Cloud Gateway.  When Media Manager wants to communicate with the on-premise hardware, it will talk to the device using this always on-connection, so the system retains the ability to do immediate changes initiated by Media Manager system administrators.

A pair of 792 Cloud gateway blades can also be used to facilitate a control link between multi-site MediaStar systems where there is no transparent VPN link for device communications.
