Create your own HDTV cable channel and broadcast HD content using easy to deploy coax wiring
The ZeeVee ZvPro 250 revolutionizes the way HD video is distributed on-premise. Based on the same technology used by TV stations and cable companies, ZvPro 250 makes it affordable to create an HDTV channel and distribute it over simple-to-use COAX wiring to every on-premise HDTV.
Works with any HD video source – simply connect any computer, DVD player, set top box or any other device with an HD video output to ZvPro 250 and your new HDTV channel pours out onto the COAX wiring.
Multiple channels – combine ZvPro boxes to deliver up to 135 HD channels simultaneously over simple to deploy COAX cabling.
Nothing needed at each HDTV - off-the-shelf HDTVs include the QAM tuner needed to tune to your Zv channels.
No matrix switchers or proprietary wiring required – switching between multiple ZvPro 250s is as easy as tuning to a new HDTV channel.
COAX wiring – easily integrate and balance into new or existing MATV/SMATV RF distribution systems to add an HD Tier of Video Feeds.
Practically unlimited expansion – add new channels in the future.
Shared resource – merge new channels together with existing off-site cable feeds.
Built to last – steel enclosure, rack mounting, integral power supply, internal fan, and three year warranty.

ZEEVEE ZVPRO 250 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.
