Correctional TV Channel Creation & Programming Management

Create a correctional facility-friendly, TV channel lineup, or enhance your existing cable TV channels
with helpful new features.  One device has all the features you need.

Better prisoner programming, education, entertainment & information direct to your
prison TVs.

Enhancing your TV channels and programming can help manage inmate behavior, keep prisoners occupied, relieve stress, assist supervision, and minimize incidents.  Broadcasting a channel lineup that includes movies, religious services, educational content, music channels, health & fitness information, and general inmate information can make a huge difference in prisoner management. But only if the technology is easy-to-use and is designed with correctional facilities in mind.

The FlexStream MX-400 enables prison staff to create custom TV channels, and manage the content of those channels, with an easy to use, web calendar user interface.

Whether adding channels, or providing a new channel lineup, the MX-400 has tools you need to entertain, educate, and occupy inmates, broadcast alerts and other time sensitive information, and control access to programming content using existing DTVs and cable TV wiring.
