The TP multiplexers are devices, which enable recording and decoding of up to 16 TV signals (cameras) on the VCR. They also offer the simultaneous displaying of all cameras on a divided screen in several displaying formats views.

B/W Simplex Multiplexers

Simplex multiplexers have one universal digital channel, which is used either for recording, playback or for LIVE camera pictures displaying. They also have one spot analogue channel, which can be used for camera observing during recording. This channel operates as a programmable sequential video switcher.

B/W and Colour Duplex Multiplexers

The duplex multiplexers enable simultaneous recording and playback with the use of two digital independent channels. The first one is used for the live cameras displaying or for the playback on the split screen and the second one is used for the recording to the time lapse recorder.


The PAN/TILT camera heads and lenses  are be controlled, with the help of CAN interface and the TC telemetry receivers. Telemetry function is standard for every type of multiplexers.

Remote Controlling of Multiplexers

The KB1 external keyboard enables remote controlling of external equipment (PAN/TILT systems, lenses, multiplexers) by the CAN interface. You can connect several external keyboards to CAN bus and control different or the same devices by them. During controlling one device by several keyboards you are able to operate controlled device by another keyboard five seconds after the last command of the previous keyboard.

Multiplexers Networking

You can simply control several multiplexers by one external keyboard and one auxiliary video switcher from one place and observe the picture of the actual controlled multiplexer. You can use a multiplexer sequential switcher instead of a video switcher. You are able to use the unused video inputs of the multiplexer no. 3 for recording or displaying on a divided monitor screen. (At simplex multiplexers you can use the unused video inputs just for displaying on a divided monitor screen.)

Activity Detector

The integrated activity detector observes all connected cameras continuously and provides their optimal recording. The alarm signal from the activity detector is leaded out to the alarm output.


The multiplexers have a wide range of alarm processing from alarm inputs, activity detector and camera fails. The alarm  events are stored to internal memory of multiplexer.
