Product Description

Multiplexing is used to encapsulate multiple Audio, Video, and Data services and Control information in Multiplex Frames (MMB Part 1, 2). The main functions of the multiplexer are: receive the incoming data; prepare control and service information tables; encapsulate the data in frames depending on the data type and classification criteria; schedule time slots maintaining appropriate FIFO levels; and distribute the multiplexed service and control tables as MPEG-2 TS packets to modulators through ASI interfaces. The multiplexer can be used in two possible scenarios: at the Head-End as a central multiplexer of global services, simultaneously multiplexing one or two networks (1), or locally as a multiplexer of local content (2).  The multiplexer is designed to satisfy the requirements in both scenarios and operate in either of them with minimal configuration.
