Cabletime to Introduce New Digital Signage Content Creation Software, New Lower Latency HDMI Encoder at ISE

Cabletime is planning to unveil the latest version of its digital signage content creation software and new Lower Latency HDMI Encoder with HDCP Pro 2.2 support and compliant solutions at Integrated Systems Europe (6-9 February 2018, RAI, Amsterdam).

Digital signage users looking for the rich creativity of content creation software coupled with full control of their media environment, including capture, manage, storage and display functionality, will benefit from Creator 2.0. This latest update to Cabletime’s class leading, enterprise wide 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 Stand 10-P130 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 has just been 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 is also expected to demonstrate RoomStar, its specialist interactive TV and content distribution solution for the global hotel market as well as support for Pro-Idiom decryption in its MediaStar media player products. RoomStar will be launched first in the US, and is due to become available in Europe during Q2 of 2018.
