ZeeVee ZVPRO820-NA
ZvPRO 820 Two Channel HDMI In - QAM Out Encoder/Modulator


Based on the same architecture as their big brothers (ZeeVee's HDbridge 2000 Series encoder/modulators), ZvPro models pack powerful features into a small space. At just 1RU high and shelf or rack mountable, it takes just one ZvPro to create a digital TV channel and broadcast it throughout your entire facility. Giving you smarter, smaller HD Video Distribution over Coax!

ZeeVee encoder/modulators convert video sources such as signage players and satellite receivers into digital cable channels that are broadcast over existing coaxial cabling to an unlimited number of HDTV’s. ZvPro’s broadcast technology eliminates the need for special equipment (including transmit/receive devices). It’s the easiest, most reliable way to distribute a few channels of HD video to multiple HDTV’s.

Important Notice: The HDMI input on ZeeVee products will only support unencrypted video, typically from a digital signage player, video camera or other self-generated content.  All of ZeeVee's products broadcast a clear QAM (unencrypted) signal over coax, therefore would break HDCP (HDMI’s encryption rules/requirements) if ZeeVee tried to support encrypted video as an input. ZeeVee's HDMI input most likely will not work with Apple Products (such as Macs), Blu-ray players, satellite boxes or cable boxes, as they are typically encrypted.
