Multi Channel Manager is part of RGB Spectrums new line of DSx¢â H.264 codecs for graphics and HD video.

It is comprised of a Player Control Screen - to execute stream, record, replay, next and previous clip, event mark placement, random access, etc., controlling all of the DSx codecs simultaneously, a Network Monitor screen which activates, identifies and configures individual DSx codecs and reports their operational status, and a Network Manager screen to add and delete DSx codecs from Multi Channel Manager control.
