Transport Stream Multiplexer

The MX-400TS adds a TS video server, modulator, and tuner monitor to the MX-400 base configuration. Used as an "edge QAM", the frequency and standards agile modulator provides is enabled as an multiplexer output. A cable TV tuner is also provided to scan and discover unused cable TV frequencies.
