Manifold
Cascade of several filters on a common output transmission line (“Manifold”); one end of the line is shorted, while the opposite is the output (Antenna).
The solution to the filter interaction problem is assigned to the respective position of the filters on this line; the complexity is greatly reduced compared to the Starpoint, and it is possible to implement multiplexers with up to 10 or even more channels with a great efficiency.

COM-TECH was the first to introduce the Manifold technique to Broadcast TV and FM applications, and further extended the versatility of this architecture exploiting the Adjacent Channel combination.
The Manifold combination technique is available on UHF and VHF B.III (MX Series) and FM (ME Series) Combiners:
