FLIR MPX makes upgrading to HD easier than ever
without the expense of re-cabling.

Supports single cable full PTZ control and audio transmission*.

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 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 Up The Coax (UTC) PTZ control and audio transmission* without running additional cabling.

720p & 1080p resolutions present a vast upgrade from D1 & 960H

What is Multi-Format?

Unlike standard MPX, which only supports HD-CVI, the latest MPX Multi-Format technology supports multiple popular HD analog formats, including HD-CVI, AHD, AD-TVI. Some cameras will also support analog (CVBS) video format.

How does it 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 video, audio*, and data, which enables high-performance functionality such as audio monitoring, PTZ control and OSD menu control with a single cable run.


*only supported under HD-CVI. Requires audio-enabled camera.

Benefits of MPX technology:

  • Upgrade to analog HD seamlessly with no need for rewiring

  • Megapixel & uncompressed image quality up to 4MP (2688 x 1520)

  • Long range, zero-latency, reliable video transmission (without the addition of relay devices)

  • Strong anti-interference capability

  • MPX multi-format technology supports interoperability between popular HD analog standards, allowing for flexiblity in matching cameras and recorders.
