Cabletime pushes MediaStar in Italy
Cabletime hopes to expand its reach in Italy after appointing AlhenaCom to distribute its MediaStar Evolution range of IPTV products in the region.

In 2008 AlhenaCom was founded in Modena and specialises in management, distribution and display products for professional environments. Vendors it currently represents includes NEC, Intelix and Opticis.

“This is an important agreement for AlhenaCom, enabling us to offer a range of different solutions for encoding source SD/HD video over IP,” said Marco Bompani, founder and CEO of AlhenaCom.

“We were impressed by the new features now available from the MediaStar Evolution product line, and launched at ISE, in particular iVOD and the HLS live streaming facility in Media Manager, and we feel that MediaStar covers all the market demands for video distribution over the network.”

Mark Stanborough, EMEA sales manager at Cabletime, said: “Our solutions are a good fit with [AlhenaCom’s] existing portfolio and the company is committed to delivering the best solutions across the pro AV, broadcast, corporate and conference and digital signage markets.”
