Uniguest’s MediaStar solution was recommended, a combination of digital media decoders and encoders, plus a number of DVB-T LAN-Casters. The content output is managed through the Media Manager system control software and Kent Cricket is also utilising a scrolling ticker function with RSS feeds that show live scores from matches taking place at other cricket grounds, plus welcome messages and a permanent clock.
Kent Cricket is now able to distribute and manage its content across over forty screens across its network and this has had a significant effect on how it keeps visitors informed and entertained. Streams are managed through Media Manager and live matches are broadcast widely, however other matches are also shown live, and pre-recorded video content is displayed in different suites to suit different audiences. The Club has been able to commercialise its IPTV set-up, offering sponsorships on screen to clients during events and cricket matches.
