    Opis produktu MediaKind MX8400

    A wide choice of cost-effective designs together with integration of any new technology is strived for by all broadcasters and operators. The introduction of IP interconnectivity offers a means to reduce infrastructure costs, increase flexibility and offer a choice of system architectures.

    The MX8400 revolutionizes IP multiplexing technology. Providing up to eight independent multiplexed transport streams from a single enclosure and with built-in support for DVB Common Scrambling Algorithm for content protection and BISS, MX8400 facilitates numerous system architectures.

    Suitable for a wide range of multiplexing and re-multiplexing applications, it’s designed to offer system level redundancy and ease of operations. MX8400 is a feature rich product that also supports ASI input and output, SFN Adaptation, SMPTE 2022 Pro-MPEG FEC and Reflex™ Statistical Multiplexing. Fully integrated with nCompass management system, the MX8400 takes full advantage of the IP technology to provide a cost-effective, highly reliable and flexible solution. Dual hot swap PSUs are an option available for additional resilience.


    Product Overview

    Ideal for Primary Multiplexing in Central Headend

    The MX8400 is suitable for a wide range of multiplexing and re- multiplexing applications – including primary multiplexing in headends for DTH satellite, cable and terrestrial, contribution systems and re-multiplexing applications in central and regional headends.

    Multiple Multiplexed Transport Stream Outputs

    MX8400 offers a unique design concept that offers up to eight independent multiplexed transport streams to reduce costs and simplify designs, enabling systems to grow as the need demands.

    Statistical Multiplexing

    MediaKind’s Reflex Statistical Multiplexing is implemented to work over IP networks to provide the maximum utilization of available bit-rate. Supports both MPEG-2 SD and HD and MPEG-4 AVC SD and HD.

    Enabling Cost-effective Redundant and Resilient System Architectures

    MX8400 offers a fully redundant architecture in combination with nCompass management system that enables implementation of cost effective and resilient system architectures; MX8400 supports redundant external clocks, Data, CA and Control ports. Support of IGMPv3 allows MX8400 to perform multicast joins and leaves to further simplify system design.

    Advanced Control and Monitoring Features

    With nCompass Control, the MX8400 offers advanced control and monitoring features that allows for ease of use and maintenance – leading to savings through operational costs, time and labor.

    Increased Reliability

    The highly integrated unit facilitates the need for fewer units and thus increases the overall system reliability.
