ZeeVee HDbridge 2500 Series

720p Encoder / Modulator

Distribute two sources/channels HD video up to 720p resolution to an unlimited number of displays over almost any distance. The HDbridge 2500 series converts component or VGA sources into an RF signal that is sent to an HDTV display's QAM digital tuner over coax cable -just like a traditional cable box. With its high 45 dBmv RF output, you can send your content to an unlimited number of displays over nearly any distance. You can change sources on any display simply by changing the channel on the display - virtually eliminating the need for a traditional AV matrix switcher.

Multiple HDbridge units can be combined to create a headend that will support over 100 channels on your video network at each display. The HDbridge enables quick setup through a LAN network using the Maestro software to customize your sources and channels, as well as a front LCD panel to directly control and monitor the unit. This unit is designed especially for high channel density environments where rapid deployment, advanced management, and compatibility are critical. Used in some of the most famous ballparks in the world, this is an ideal solution for environments where you have a large number of displays, such as stadiums, entertainment facilities, or broadcast environments.
