Applications: Digital Signage
Every ZvBox/player combo is distributed as a unique HDTV channel on the same COAX cable. At any display, just tune in the channel of the player you want to see.
Distribute VGA and HD Video for $0 per Display
Installing a player at each display in a digital signage system is equipment (and cost) overkill where multiple displays share the same messaging. A ZvBox lets one signage player feed an unlimited number of displays, with no set-top boxes required. It does so by converting the output of the player into an HD cable TV channel, and broadcasting it over existing coaxial wiring to all displays. To view the channel/player, simply tune it in at any display, using the display’s HDTV tuner.
|Old Way||ZeeVee Way|
|Allocate players||One player at every display||From 1 to 135 players in back room, each available to every display|
|Install wiring||One home run of CAT5 or ethernet per display||Use existing COAX, or pull one new length and split as necessary to feed displays|
|Add a display||Pull new cable home run Buy & install new player||Splice coax, connect to new display.|
|Set top box, cost per display||$200-$1100||$0|
Who’s Using ZvPro? Here are just a few.
Using ZvBoxes to send HD video and digital signage over existing coaxial cabling is an irresistible value; here are just a few well-known organizations using that value to their advantage:
|Rivers Casino||This brand new facility uses 62 ZvPro 250s to distribute digital signage, HD cable TV channels, and recorded material to 150+ screens across the casino.|
|JP Morgan Chase||Twelve ZvPro 250x in the basement of a downtown NYC tower deliver HD video to all 24 floors occupied by this banking giant, and they do it over existing coax cabling!|
|Notre Dame||This university’s renowned football stadium uses ZvPro 250x to deliver HD video and digital signage to HD screens throughout the facility.|
|Tulsa University||All flat panel HDTVs in the luxury suite at this newly-remodeled arena receive their HD programming from ZvPros, broadcasting over existing coax.|
|Northland, a Church Distributed||This 12,000 member congregation uses a single ZvPro 250 to broadcast the sermon captured on video camera in the sanctuary to all HDTVs on campus, over existing coax cabling.|
|NBC/Universal||At the 2009 Latin Music Awards, NBC used ZvPro 250s to deliver the HD broadcast feed from the production truck to the screens at the venue, over existing coax.|
ZvBox™ – Send HD Video Over Your Home’s Coax Wiring
Based on the same technology used by TV stations and cable companies, ZvBox® turns the output of a VGA or HD source into an HDTV cable channel and broadcasts it over coax cabling to all connected HDTVs. To view the HD source, simply tune in your new Zv channel at any of the HDTVs. Compatibility with existing coax cabling means ZvBox is ideal for retrofit applications.
Use a ZvBox to:
- Perform whole-house HD video distribution with no new wires!
- Connect a computer for unlimited Internet video on demand.
- Deliver digital signage in light commercial applications.
The Key Benefits of Coax:
- Coax already in place in vast majority of homes- reduces or eliminates the need to cut holes in walls or run new wires.
- Proven method: cable companies light up entire cities with coax
- Easy to deploy and expand coax systems using simple hand tools
- System parts (splitters, amps, etc.) inexpensive and widely available
- Connects to off-the-shelf HDTVs without additional set top boxes at each TV
- Handles up to 135 simultaneous channels
