The Ericsson MX8400 system multiplexer is at the center of Ericsson’s multi-platform headend architecture, meeting the needs of IP distribution infrastructures, together with robustness suitable for mission-critical applications.

Ideal for a wide range of multiplexing and re-multiplexing applications, including primary multiplexing in headends for DTH satellite, contribution and distribution systems, as well as applications in cable and terrestrial central headends.

The MX8400 also introduces a new concept in multiplexing, by being able to support up to eight independent multiplex output transport streams, allowing for greater flexibility and for future system expansion. Combined with powerful stream processing and the Reflex™ Statistical Multiplexing System, the MX8400 is the flexible heart of any MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC SD/HD based broadcast system.

  • Acts as multiple multiplexers by providing up to eight independent multiplexed output transport streams.
  • Supports high throughput with 250 Mbps capable transport streams and maximum utilisation of output gigabit Ethernet bandwidth.
  • Provides simultaneous availability of output transport streams via both IP and ASI.
  • Streamlined designed through highly efficient multiplexing algorithms.
  • Provides optimum output bandwidth savings of up to 15% through use of Reflex Statistical Multiplexing.
