MPEG-2 Digital TV Encoder / Multiplexer
The LEX‐2000 is a powerful yet low cost MPEG‐2 encoder / multiplexer, that can be configured with all the functions necessary to get any station on the air with a DTV signal.

The LEX-2000 MPEG-2 digital TV encoder / multiplexer from Hitachi-COMARK was developed primarily for the LPTV market. It uses a compact 2RU dedicated hardware platform and provides all the necessary functions to allow a broadcaster to get on the air with an ATSC compliant, multi-program signal. The LEX-2000 can encode up to 8 programs in in a combination of either SD or HD formats. In addition to program encoding, the product also multiplexes the program content with both static and dynamic PSIP data.
Quick Exchange Program for LEX/CMX Encoders
Hitachi-Comark is proud to add the LEX/CMX encoder to our Quick Exchange Service to quickly, and cost effectively, put your station back on air.
The Quick Exchange Program for LEX/CMX encoders is simple. If a problem arises with a LEX/CMX encoder, a call is made to Hitachi-Comark and a replacement encoder is shipped, usually in 1-2 days. The broadcaster permanently keeps the replacement encoder and sends the failed unit back to Hitachi-Comark. This saves the broadcaster time and money by eliminating installation of temporary encoders while repairs are being made and reinstalling repaired encoders. The Quick Exchange Program for LEX/CMX encoders allows the LEX/CMX encoders to be switched once.
