HDbridge3000 High Density RF Modulation Chasis

RF Modulation and IP Encoding in one Chasis

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 HDbridge3000 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.

Increase Security

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.

Configure, Manage, and Monitor with Ease

The HDbridge3000 built-in management software, called Maestro, makes it simple to set up and manage channels, content, and more from anywhere on your network. ZeeVee RF Modulation products autodetect each other and all devices to managed from one user interface without having to log into multiple devices.

Create Custom Channels

On certain media modules for the HDbridge3000, there is an option an extra channel, called ZvShow, that offers looping customized content. ZvShow will play a video file on a separate channel to enable you to use displays to play commercials, showcase menus, or as digital signage.

Control Set-Top Boxes

The HDbridge3000 management software can control DirecTV other supported receivers directly from the web interface. You can turn the receiver on or off, change channels, as well as editing a channel’s on-screen display name.
