Cabletime unveils MediaStar synchronisation feature at ISE 2015

Cabletime has announced the launch of an added feature to its MediaStar IPTV distribution systems - synchronised live video streaming - at the ISE 2015 show in Amsterdam.

The new enhancement to the company’s IPTV distribution product, MediaStar, will provide intelligent and auto-adaptive synchronised play-out of any live video stream regardless of the number of screens being used.

Mike Cuckow, sales director, EMEA Asia Pacific at Cabletime said: "There has long been an issue around accurately synching video and audio delivered over IP to multiple screens. The feature, which will be incorporated in all new products, and will be easily upgradeable by existing users of MediaStar, will ensure that both the video and audio on multiple screens are fully harmonised."

Along with presentations (on booth 10-P116) of the new synchronised live video streaming feature, Cabletime will also be demonstrating its digital signage platform which now supports 4K, multi-zones and advanced browsing.

The new MediaStar Multi-Format Encoder (785-I) will be shown for the first time at ISE. This solid state standalone unit has an MPEG2/H264 and HLS encoding capability and an auto-select input facility for all baseband, component, HDMI and SDI sources.
