ZeeVee , Inc. (Zv) a global manufacturer of video and signal distribution technology, announced today that TopGolf, a best-in-class entertainment facility, is rolling out Zv’s HDbridge Series video distribution products to further enhance the best driving range experience in the world.
TopGolf turned to Diem Digital to improve upon the TopGolf entertainment experience by implementing a powerful, flexible and cost-effective AV integration that delivered interactive TVs to each hitting bay. Diem Digital identified ZeeVee’s HDbridge Series high performance QAM video distribution solution as the best-suited equipment to deliver the quality, reliability and flexibility required, and at 50% lower cost than a traditional matrix switch solution.
The solution Diem Digital proposed and deployed has proven reliable and intuitive, giving accessible control to the staff via any Wi-Fi connected mobile device (iPhone, Android and Windows) whereas this was not possible at TopGolf facilities previously. With a simple, intuitive SAVI Controls interface TopGolf new hires become proficient at controlling the entire AV system in just minutes, substantially cutting down personnel training costs.
“ZeeVee’s HDbridge Series has provided us with an extremely reliable, and cost-effective solution for TopGolf,” said Byron Baird, vice president of sales at Diem Digital. “Greater reliability is realized due to the centralized approach and lack of expensive failure prone end point devices behind every TV, making this solution cost effective and simple to maintain,” he added.
“With extensive audio-visual experience and unrivalled customer service, Diem Digital has been an excellent partner for Zv in the U.S.,” said Chris Scurto, vice president sales and marketing, ZeeVee. “They tackled the integration challenges presented by the sheer size of a typical 65,000-square-foot TopGolf location – with its 3 levels, 260 TVs, and miles of cabling between video endpoints and the control room with ease and delivered an extremely cost-effective and reliable solution,” he added.
