ZEEVEE ZVBOX 160

The NEW ZvBox 160 replaces the ZvBox 150 in the line, and adds:
  • Fan cooling - making it easier to deploy in more applications
  • Gen 3 Encoder - a stronger video processor that runs our newest encoder, delivering exceptional video quality
  • 60 frames per second - fast action and scrolling text look great.
  • Easy setup - simple front-button interface for channel setting. You are up and running in minutes.
  • Rich configuration - via a USB connection to a PC running ZvConfig. Allows you to change channel names, logos, and many other options if desired.

    ZvBox 160 uses existing coaxial cabling so there's no need to cut holes in walls or pull new cables, making it the perfect retrofit HD video distribution system. And future expansion is easy: when a new HDTV is connected to the coax, it will automatically have access to the Zv channel. Want to share more sources? Create an additional channel by adding another ZvBox 160!

  • Up to 720p HDTV cable channel output — HD sources connected to ZvBox 160 can be tuned in at any HDTV
  • RF connection- easy to integrate into existing cable wiring, saves time!

  • ZEEVEE ZVBOX 160 FAQs

    What is the difference between the ZvBox and HDbridge units?
    The ZvBox modulators are standalone modulators each with their own power and installed individually. The ZvBox 170, ZvBox 180 and ZvPro 280 also support VGA, in addition to component input. Configuration for the ZvBox line of products is typically done using the ZvConfig application via a USB connection to a Windows PC.

    The HDbridge line is a product designed for medium to large head end installations like multi-dwelling units, hotels and other hospitality environments. There are 3 different modules that allow you to mix and match the resolution that you need. All are installed into a rack chassis. The chassis can support up to eight modules at a time and comes complete with power, and optionally, channel combiner and launch amp. Configuration of the HDbridge line is done via web browser.
