InfoComm 2018: Cabletime to show lower latency HDMI encoder
Cabletime will be showing the latest version of its digital signage content creation software and new lower latency HDMI encoder with HDCP Pro 2.2 support and compliant products at InfoComm 2108 (6-8 June, Las Vegas).
The latest update to Cabletime’s digital signage tool now features full integration with MediaStar Media Manager to enable easy scheduling and distribution of digital signage pages across the network. In addition, users will be able to add 4K content, video rotation, live web clippings for extra impact, and new-style tickers.
Also being shown on the Cabletime booth (booth C3920) will be a new low latency HDMI encoder (Model 798), which will offer a faster, more efficient MediaStar blade to add to the current encoder solution. 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 and will be a feature of all Cabletime’s MediaStar products during 2018.
Cabletime will be showing its MediaStar IP Re-Caster blade, which converts Multi-cast to Uni-cast and vice versa and earlier this year was declared as ‘SRT Ready’ by the SRT Alliance. This means that it meets criteria that ensure it can optimise streaming performance across unreliable and unpredictable networks without compromising on security and with easy firewall traversal.
The company will also demonstrate RoomStar, its specialist interactive TV and content distribution solution for the global hotel market following its acquisition of US-based Roomio last year.
