  • ZEEVEE ZVBOX 180 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.
