Several new IPTV and digital signage products are on show from MediaStar, including a lite Media Player, an upgraded Media Portal and an updated Media Manager, now with analytics.
Media Manager v11, the latest version of its content management system, includes an Analytics Module, to give users greater insight into how and where content is being used across their IPTV or streaming environment, to enhance diagnostics and deliver proof of play.
It simplifies creating and running charts that analyse media usage on the network, and graphs can be configured that deliver dynamic running reports and an animated view of media playout and usage over time.
The new Media Portal 4.0 has support for HDCP Professional and provides easy access to the media assets held in a MediaStar system. It now supports playout of unencrypted streamed content while decrypting AES and HDCP Professional streams directly from MediaStar encoders.
The MediaStar 782-LT Media Player offers all the essential features for 4K IPTV, multi-zone digital signage and digital media delivery, but at a lower price, with full support for hardware-accelerated HTML5 rendering in 4K/UHD. It decodes H.265, H.264 and MPEG-2 network streams and plays locally stored video from onboard memory.
