New Army HQ in Andover becomes latest MOD site to install MediaStar

UK, November 2, 2010. The newly opened HQ Land Forces base in Andover, Wiltshire, has become the latest Ministry of Defence site to install a MediaStar solution from Cabletime. This marks a period of active investment in IPTV and TV distribution at MOD sites over the past 14 months.

MediaStar Evolution, the powerful IP-based solution for digital media, TV and AV content distribution over networks, has been installed by leading video conferencing and audio visual systems integrator, Audio Visual Machines (AVM), at the Marlborough Lines site in Andover. An additional four large MOD bases are now using Evolution, a further one has installed both Evolution and Cabletime’s Cat-5/UTP solution MediaStar Pro, and several smaller sites are using MediaStar Compact.

At the Land Forces base in Andover, MediaStar Evolution is delivering a variety of feeds including live news broadcasts and MOD generated content to displays that can be accessed by larger audiences. The site is being used by up to 1750 service and civilian personnel, and includes open plan working areas, conference and meeting rooms and additional facilities including a café.

Mike Cuckow, Sales Director EMEA & Asia Pacific at Cabletime, said: “With many Ministry of Defence installations there is a requirement for secure delivery of video communications, which is best facilitated by using the data network. MediaStar Evolution is designed specifically to work on IP networks without disruption and is ideal for this type of application, ensuring both stability and security.?

The MediaStar range, which has a strong, established heritage, includes TV/AV and multimedia delivery products for use over Cat-5/UTP and IP infrastructures, providing solutions for live TV, corporate communications, multicasts, music TV, training and digital signage.
