New Jersey, 24 April 2019. Cabletime, developer of the powerful MediaStar range of IPTV and digital media distribution solutions is presenting new enhancements to its extensive range of customisable IPTV and digital signage products on booth 3089 at InfoComm 2019 (June 12-14, Orlando, Florida, USA).
Recently launched by Cabletime are two MediaStar Transcoders, the 700-482 and 700-485, which process, regulate the stream rate and transcode multiple live video and audio IPTV streams to enable their controlled re-transmission onto an IP network. This allows each processed stream to meet specific network data rate limits or be modified to play out on other platforms.
The company will also demonstrate the new MediaStar 798 HDMI encoders and the 799 IP-casters, which deliver lower latency and re-casting across virtual private networks and the Internet to offices or other locations enabled with the two solutions. 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.
Cabletime’s live TV and OTT TV solution for the hotel and hospitality market will be a key feature on the booth. The system combines a TV content distribution functionality with a bespoke property management interface designed to meet the demands of the growing global hotel interactive TV market.
RoomStar is ideal for franchise and privately-owned hotels with between 50 and 200 rooms looking for proven Hospitality TV technology that is highly reliable, scalable and competitively priced. It provides all the functionality and revenue-generating features of other TV-On-Demand products, but is highly competitive in terms of price, technology and reliability.
Creating visual communications
The latest in Cabletime’s software updates for MediaStar Media Manager and Creator are on show, and visitors will be able to see how they can easily create and distribute visual communications, signage and live streaming. Demonstrations of the new enhancements will be rolling on the booth throughout.
InfoComm is a great forum for Cabletime to discuss solutions which feature its end-to-end protected content capabilities. This includes the pro-idiom live stream and mobile stream support in the MediaStar 782 and 782DS media players and the LAN-casters. These are important additions for Cabletime, which is growing its customer base in the US where the corporate TV market is moving towards pro-idiom protected content and HDCP protected output. The company will also focus on custom encryption end-to-end using AES 128bit solutions which will support any stream into the MediaStar LAN-caster or 798 Encoder and encrypt the stream for delivery to of the MediaStar hardware or software media players.
With a focus very much on standards, Cabletime will be showing its HDCP Pro encryption solution. This takes HDCP Pro encrypted content into the MediaStar 798 and streams it, fully protected, to the MediaStar 782 decoders. This is an emerging standard for end-to-end encryption of protected content over an IP network and means that users will be confident of meeting legal requirements when streaming protected content.
“We will be demonstrating our new solutions and those we have in the pipeline that put Cabletime ahead of the competition when it comes to emerging standards,” said Shaun Oxenham, CEO at Cabletime. “We understand the importance of being able to offer encrypted, protected content and output to corporate AV buyers and we are keen to show the commitment we have made to supporting it at InfoComm 2019. We also have a wide range of fantastic upgrades and additions to our existing, popular range of transcoders, encoders, media players and software, all of which will be demonstrated on our stand.”
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.
