MediaStar Brings Flexible Video Distribution to American School in Doha

American School, DohaThe American School of Doha in Qatar is reaping the benefits of its recent expansion that have enabled it to deliver state-of-the-art audio video facilities to more than 1300 students. Key to the installation is a distribution system based on Cabletime’s MediaStar Pro.

The school, which was originally founded in 1997, wanted to expand so that it could provide a new library, dining hall, computer and science labs, presentation rooms, recreation and sports facilities, art studios and a 630 seat theatre. Work started last year, and Doha-based specialist systems integrator, Techno Q was appointed to oversee the audio visual and lighting elements.

“We have installed Cabletime products in a number of projects,? said Abdulla Alansari, Executive Director at Techno Q. “So, we were familiar with MediaStar’s flexibility of usage, user friendly interface and high reliability. We also needed to ensure that the client would have stable transmission over long distances, because the American School occupies a large campus, and we knew that the MediaStar Pro would deliver.?

MediaStar Pro can provide up to 180 channels of live TV across Cat-5e/6 cabling. At the American School in Doha, it transmits a signal coming from two satellite dishes delivering 30 channels to over 75 points across campus. These include classrooms, boardrooms and laboratories, and additional video sources such as DVD are also available.

“Our client is particularly satisfied with the multiple administrative functions of MediaStar Pro, “ continued Abdulla Alansari. “Selective channels can be set up for each point of distribution, preventative controls can be put in place, and programmes can be broadcast at specific times into the classrooms to ensure they coincide with lessons.?

MediaStar Pro is a complete solution for professionally managed multi-channel video and audio delivery. Without impacting on the LAN, it offers 90/180 (PAL) or 100/200 (NTSC) TV channel capacity, unlimited users, use of an existing Cat 5e/6/7 infrastructure and total control of users viewing rights.

Having completed the Middle and High School facility, the American School is now on stage two of its reconstruction project, renovating the old building that is situated just beside the new facility.
