TDX Cabinet - Compact housing, quick overview
The TDX housing is designed to accommodate up to 16 frontend and 6 quad backend modules. Up to three TDX headends can be combined as one system of up to 48 input muxes and 72 output channels, either 72 PAL programs or 72 QAM/COFDM muxes or a mixture of these.
The heart of the TDX is the IP pool where services are available from all front end modules, whether terrestrial, satellite or AV encoder. From the pool, the services can be cherry-picked and distributed via the COFDM, QAM, PAL or IP backend modules.
Any input can be connected to any output. Configuration of the TDX can either take place by using the TDX service tool or the web based configurator. Both the TDX service tool and the web configurator ensure that the COFDM or QAM muxes are created in a way where the maximum bandwidth is respected.
