ZVBox Configuration

All ZvBoxes can be configured using ZvConfig and ZvCli - powerful software applications that run on a PC and connect to ZvBox via a USB cable.

ZvBox 170 and ZvBox 180 feature a front-panel display and allow for broad configuration without needing a PC.

ZvBox 160 offers a simple way to set the broadcast channel via a single front-panel button.

Configuring a ZvBox can be as simple as changing the RF channel used for broadcast, or as powerful as associating audio ports with video ports and controlling how video gets processed and broadcast.

  • ZvConfig™ is an easy to use graphical interface that uses wizards and well laid-out settings to make set up simple.
  • ZvCli™ is a command-line interface that offers the same powerful commands that are available on the serial port of the ZvPro 280. It also offers batch processing.

Either application offers the ability to upgrade firmware, perform cable scans, and easily configure large deployments.
