ZEEVEE HDB2312 HDbridge 12 Channel SD Video Encoder / QAM Modulator


FREE Ground Shipping


Distribute 12 channels of standard definition video to an unlimited number of displays over nearly any distance. The HDb2312 converts standard definition video and analog audio sources into an RF signal that is sent to a display's QAM digital tuner over coax cable - just like a traditional cable box. With its high 45 dBmv RF output, you can send your content to an unlimited number of displays. You can change sources on any display simply by changing the channel on the display - virtually eliminating the need for a traditional AV matrix switcher. This solution is ideal for anyone looking for an easy and affordable way to support a large number of displays such as a sports bar, house of worship, or digital signage. Multiple units can be combined to create a headend that will support over 100 channels on your video network at each display. The HDb2312 enables quick setup through a LAN network using the Maestro software to customize your sources and channels, as well as a front LCD panel to directly control and monitor the unit. This unit is designed especially for high channel density environments where rapid deployment, advanced management and compatibility are critical. Used in some of the most famous ballparks in the world, this is an ideal solution for environments where you have a large number of displays, such as stadiums, entertainment facilities, or broadcast environments.
