Uniguest launches MediaStar 8K Media Player & Media Manager-as-a-Service at ISE2023   

Jan 19, 2023

London, UK, 9th January 2023. Uniguest will be unveiling two new solutions at ISE 2023 for its MediaStar platform. The MediaStar 800 8K Media Player breaks new ground by providing the latest in 8K technology advances for the cost of a 4K player; while the launch of MediaStar’s Media Manager-as-a-Service brings all the functionality and features of the popular management software hosted in the cloud. 

MediaStar 800 8K Media Player  

The MediaStar 800 8K moves the dial when it comes to outputting 8K HDMI video from live IP streams, web pages, locally stored video files, or content from a corporate video server. Offering an exceptional cost-performance ratio, the 800 is fully 8K-capable and specifically designed for corporate, sports, digital signage, and other commercial applications.  

Secure, reliable, and low maintenance, the 800 Media Player can be deployed company-wide and configured using Media Manager software with its easy ‘automatic device discovery’ and ‘drag and drop’ interface.  

The hardware platform of the 800, built on Linux OS, is designed to be situated close to display screens, and uses an Octal processor core to provide fast rendering of HTML5 web page content, including live and stored video and the display of HDCP Professional protected live video streams.  

As well as providing users with a low cost to entry, the MediaStar 800 is future friendly, with the base unit allowing for HD output but can be upgraded to 4K, and then further upgraded to 8K without any need for the hardware to be replaced. 

MediaStar Media Manager-as-a-Service 

In response to customer demand for a cloud-based media management service, Uniguest is launching MediaStar’s Media Manager-as-a-Service. It comes complete with all the features of the MediaStar CMS, including the Analytics Module launched at ISE 2022. 

Deployed from the cloud, customers will be able to fully control their media environment, access reporting and manage the capture, storage, and display of their media assets so they can be used to accurately target information to their audience in the right location at the right time. 

Instead of downloading the Media Manager software program to local servers, customers will be offered a subscription service, providing them with access to a cloud-based solution with the wider benefits of lower cost of ownership and scalability.  

Shaun Oxenham, Managing Director, MediaStar by Uniguest, said: “The launch of these two significant products that further enhance our IPTV, streaming and digital signage line, also demonstrate our continued R&D commitment to future-proofing our solutions and providing customers with a long-term ROI. At ISE we are making leading-edge technology available that will be upgradeable in the future as well as being interoperable with new applications and configurations.”
