Flir MPX – megapixel over coax


Flir MPX - analoge HD Videoüberwachung

Low-cost installation of a video surveillance system with megapixel resolution

Your old video surveillance system far from the scrap heap. With Flir MPX you can use your existing coaxial cable infrastructure to take advantage of cost-effective and easy to install video surveillance system with megapixel resolution. A time-consuming and expensive rewiring is not necessary.

FLIR MPX is a next generation, low cost megapixel-over-coax technology that provides HD video & audio transmission, as well as advanced UTC control of PTZ cameras and OSD menu options – all without the expense of re-cabling. MPX seamlessly bridges the gap between analog and HD, offering long range, zerolatency video transmission that is truly second to none.

What is MPX?

FLIR MPX™ is a revolutionary video surveillance format powered by HD-CVI technology. MPX delivers megapixel picture quality over coax, meaning you can upgrade your existing analog systems to HD resolution (1MP & 2.1MP) over a single coax cable (existing RG59 & RG6 compatible).

Ideal for retrofit, MPX makes upgrading to HD easier than ever without the expense of re-cabling. MPX facilitates powerful functionality previously unattainable over coax with duplex communication, enabling full UTC PTZ control and audio transmission without running additional cabling.

How does MPX work?

MPX is an over-coaxial-cable analog HD video transmission standard utilizing bidirectional full duplex communication. A single run of coaxial cable is used to reliably transmit HD images, audio, and data, which enables high-performance functionality such as intercom, UTC PTZ and OSD menu control with a single cable run.

Benefits of MPX technology

  • Upgrade to analog HD seamlessly with simple, low-cost installation
  • Megapixel & uncompressed image quality —1080p (1920×1080) & 720p (1280×720)
  • Long range, zero-latency, reliable video transmission (without the addition of relay devices)
  • Strong anti-interference capability
  • Support for 960H and other analog surveillance standards
