MX-200

The MX-200 hosts the FlexStream software in a compact, cost effective shelf-top package. As with the larger rackmount MX devices, the MX-200 is commonly used to create TV channels that are added to an existing in-house cable TV or IPTV network.  The wall-mount or shelf top format make this unit especially appropriate for installation in areas that don’t have equipment racks, most notable cable TV demarcation closets.  When installed this way, the MX-200 is a great fit for creating a single HD channel (MX-200CC).  Alternatively, when paired with a rack mount unit, the MX-200TS can be used as a cable closet edge QAM (modulator).  The rack mount unit can then be located in a more accessible location such as a media room or chapel.

MX-500

MX-550

The MX-500 and MX-550 both support all the modules of the MX-400 but without the two low profile module bays located near the power supply of the MX-400.  On the MX-5xx series this space is used to add processing power.  The MX-500 units priced similarly to the MX-400, but with nearly twice the encoding capability.  The MX-550 takes that a step further by adding 5x the encoding capability of the MX-400.  Select the MX-500 over the MX-400 when the extra module bays are not required.  Choose the MX-550 if you need both computing power and flexibility.  Many applications that required an MX-400 for flexibility and a MX-300 for encoding will now find that a single MX-550 meets their needs.

Feature Highlights:
