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.

|Allocate players||One player at every display||From 1 to 135 players in back room, each available to every display|

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
