Flexibile AV Distribution over RF & IP
The HDbridge3000 provides a highly flexible, incredibly reliable, and simple to use solution for delivering HD and SD video simultaneously over RF and IP networks, all within a compact 3RU footprint. With the flexibility to grow with your deployment, coupled with our industry-leading warranty and an incredible team of professionals, ZeeVee enables you to future-proof your video distribution investment. Distribute two sources/channels of HD video up to 1080p resolution or six channels of SD 480i video per card directly from your audio and video sources to an unlimited number of displays over almost any distance or network. The HDbridge3000 converts audio and video into an output which can be sent over coax cable to an HDTV’s QAM or DVB-T/C tuner or with the IP enabled card an MPEG-2 IP stream can be simultaneously multi-casted over most Ethernet networks and to an IP set-top box or computer. ZeeVee has also introduced a 4 channel H.264 media module that allows you to stream MPEG-4 directly to IP set-top-boxes. This means you can send your content to an unlimited number of displays over nearly any distance - and change sources on any display simply by changing the channel on the display - virtually eliminating the need for a traditional AV matrix switcher.
This solution is ideal for anyone looking for an easy and affordable way to support a large number of video sources and/or displays such as a sports bar, house of worship, or digital signage. Multiple HDbridge3000, HDbridge2000 and ZvPro units can be combined to create a headend that will support over 100 HD channels on your video network. The HDbridge3000 enables quick setup through the Maestro management software to customize your sources and channels. This unit is designed especially for high channel density environments where rapid deployment, advanced management, and reliability are critical.
Emergency Alert System
The HDb3000 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 sources /channels over a single coax cable.
