THE MEDIATUNE SYSTEM

Mediatune™ is a revolutionary video management system based on the COM2000 DIRECTV™ satellite headend solution to serve the Bar and Restaurant commercial market that enables easy control of multiple TV sets using a browser based  application running on your PC, laptop or tablet instead of multiple remote controls. Simply drag and drop your selection of programs onto the right TV icons to manage your TV sets without having to make any changes to your matrix system installation.

Features

  • Simple Interface

Imagine the entire DIRECTV content lineup, all the desired external sources, and over 70 output zones all manageable on one simple webpage.  Click any desired source input from anywhere in the interface and drop it on the desired display, and Mediatune™ does the rest.  An internal video router is able to control the DIRECTV receivers giving the users a seamless and simple but incredibly powerful experience.  This web based interface is available on any device capable of running a web browser and can remain synchronized to allow for several control points.

  • True HD Resolution

The COM2000 system delivers full HD resolution in the exact format from the DIRECTV broadcast center.  Pro:Idiom content encryption is used in order to secure content deliver over the coax or IP distribution to the TV set.  Commercial TV sets or external Pro:Idiom decoder boxes such as the DCI401MCS are available to ensure compatibility with any TV set or HDMI projector.

  • External Content Management

Mediatune™ is capable of managing and routing any external IP video input including ATSC content from an ATSC-8 or HDHomerun device, external IP cameras or digital signage streaming from a network PC.  A simple video encoder can be used with HDMI video sources such as a DVD player or cable set top box providing an endless list of supported video content all managed through a simple, click and drag interface.

  • Remote Management

Both the COM46 DIRECTV™ receiver card and the QAM modulator can be controlled using Internet Protocol commands, so any device able to browse the internet can access and manage the entire video system. The COM46 receiver includes a web server based control interface much like that of a router home networking device making this simple to use and flexible enough to be controlled by a PC, Tablet, iPhone or iPad.
