The Commander TS-MUX enables PID level visibility enabling program cherry picking of sources. Multi Program Transport Stream (MPTS) signals can be received and output as Single Program Transport Streams (SPTS). IP based steams can be ingested, groomed, and output with a new IP addressing schema.
Other valuable capabilities of the Commander MUX include the ability to associate disparate audio to video only streams. This enables certain Set Top Decoders to function as some require an audio with the video to enable decoding. In other cases it may be desired to add synchronous metadata to a stream. Similarly, the Commander MUX can remove various PIDs and programs from streams as well.
