Flexibile AV Distribution over RF & IP
Ideal for organizations looking for an easy and affordable way to create a digital head-end for distributing large numbers of AV sources to an unlimited amount of displays, the HDbridge3000 provides a reliable way to deliver multiple channels of video simultaneously within a compact 3RU footprint. Whether you are distributing SD or HD content, over RF or IP, the ZeeVee HDbridge 3000 provides the flexibility needed.
The HDbridge3000 is modular with hot-swappable cards, allowing you to mix and match cards with different interfaces and resolution as needed. Populate the chassis with up to 72 channels of SD over RF, 24 channels of HD over RF (with the optional IP streams) or 48 channels of H.264 IP streams. Combine multiple HDbridge3000 units to increase the number of channels.
Emergency Alert System
The HDbridge3000 has built-in Emergency Alert System capability. The ZeeVee Emergency Alert System (EAS) can tie into national or local alert systems. ZeeVee processes alerts sent with either EAS-NET or MPEG streaming. When an alert is active, all current audio and video will be interrupted and replaced with the alert.
Incredibly easy set-up and management with ZeeVee Maestro
The HDbridge3000 is compatible with the ZeeVee Maestro software, allowing easy setup and management of your content and channels from anywhere on your network. The control module also includes an LCD panel to display IP and other configuration information without having to use a computer.
Directly control set-top boxes
The ZeeVee ZvSTB control software enables you to manage the DirecTV receiver or other supported set-top-box receivers from any computer through the Maestro software interface. You can turn the receiver on or off, change channels, as well as edit channel names appearing on the screen from any computer with network access.
Add a Digital Tuner
Have a projector or other display that doesn't have a QAM or DVB-T/C digital tuner? No problem. The ZvSync (sold separately) enables you to connect any display or projector to the HDbridge encoder coax connection and receive crystal clear video up to1080p resolution just as if your display was built with a digital coax tuner. Perfect for sports bars and house of worship applications that use projectors and televisions in the same space.
Create your own custom channel with ZvShow
The HDbridge3000 provides an extra channel that enables you to offer customized content on your displays in addition to the channels that are already being broadcast. ZvShow will play a video file (MP4, WMV, MOV) on a separate channel to enable you to use displays to play commercials, showcase menus, or as digital signage. Simply change the channel to select the content you want to see on your display. NOTE: ZvShow is not available on IP capable media cards, iSeries products, or the composite media module.
Add More Channels
Combine multiple HDbridge units to create a video network head end up to 144 channels over a single coax cable.
