Multiplex to a single stream

pixfix server

PIXFIX Mplex is a powerful way to combine multiple video streams into a single stream required in broadcast workflow. Effortlessly you can multiplex multiple SPTS and MPTS streams to a single MPTS H.264 or HEVC encoded stream which can be delivered over ASI or IP. Upon bundling with PIXFIX Versa, it becomes a powerful solution for end to end video delivery in broadcast workflow.
