Low-cost MPEG2 encoding and frequency-agile QAM modulation revolutionizes HD video distribution by using existing coax wiring without additional boxes at each display.
At InfoComm 2009, ZeeVee will show for the first time an enhanced version of their award-winning ZvPro 250 HD video distribution system for the commercial market; the enhancement enables 1080i output.
Upgrading to HD video distribution in hospitality, digital signage and public displays has been very expensive, as existing analog RF infrastructure must be replaced with IPTV technology. ZvPro changes all of that: it allows distribution of HD video using traditional methods – simple coax, and tuners in the TVs. The enabling technology is the creation of a local HD channel for broadcast on-premise; the ZvPro 250 delivers this capability at a fraction of the cost of existing solutions.
“Our dealers are telling us that projects that were on-hold due to the high cost of HD video distribution are now able to move forward.” said ZeeVee Co-founder and CEO Vic Odryna.
The ZvPro 250 encodes and delivers MPEG2 transport streams modulated as QAM256 TV channels over the full cable TV spectrum, producing HD video that can be directly received by any HDTV purchased today- allowing end-to-end solutions to be constructed at radically lower cost points. There is no limit to the number of HDTVs that can receive the broadcast from a single ZvPro 250. ZvPro 250 is sold to value-added resellers through authorized distributors.
ZvPro 250 will be sold to value-added resellers through authorized distributors. To serve the commercial markets ZeeVee has teamed with JB&A Distribution. Additional distribution for the connected home market (CEDIA) is available through Advanced Media Technologies (AMT). Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price is $2499.
