The ZvPro 620 Dual Channel Component and VGA Encoder / QAM Modulator from ZeeVee lets you convert component and VGA video input signals into digital cable channels and distribute them to an unlimited number of HDTVs over your existing coaxial cabling. The ZvPro 620 outputs 1080p/i, 720p, and 480p/i video signals, and features dual input channels with DIN connections for use with ZeeVee AV and VGA hydra cables. AV hydra cables provide component HD video, analog and digital audio, and composite video connectors for closed captioning support. VGA hydra cables provide a VGA connector and a 3.5mm analog audio connector.
The ZvPro 620 uses QAM RF modulation to turn an A/V source into a digital TV channel that is read by the digital tuner found in most HDTVs. To send the signal to additional TVs, you simply split your coax output by means of a splitter. You can send one coaxial output to hundreds, or even thousands of HDTVs with additional splitters. This eliminates the need for having a receiver box, signage player, or other video device at each TV in your facility.
The chassis is constructed from metal and is rack mountable with an optional 1U rack mount kit. The ZvPro 620 is ideal for use in sports bars, corporate offices, commercial spaces, or other venues with existing coaxial cabling.
Simple Integration and Expansion
The ZvPro 620 allows you to use your existing coaxial cables to send HD channels to TVs with built-in digital QAM tuners. To connect to more TVs, simply use a splitter to send the signal to hundreds or even thousands of TVs. Because coaxial cables support up to 134 HD channels, you can feed the output from additional ZvPro boxes into a splitter to simultaneously send multiple HD channels over a single coaxial cable.
ZeeVee Hydra AV and VGA Cables
ZeeVee hydra cables, sold separately, feature full-sized DIN connectors that connect to the DIN inputs on the back of your ZvPro 620. Hydra cables are available in VGA and AV options, and are required in order to input video signals to the device. VGA hydra cables provide a VGA connector and 3.5mm analog audio connector. AV hydra cables provide component video, analog audio, and digital audio connectors, as well as a composite connector for EIA/CEA-608 closed caption support.
Delayed Matched Audio Output
A 3.5mm delayed matched audio output allows for compensation for the encoding time of the ZvPro 620 and the decoding time of a television. This is particularly useful when using a separate audio system. Audio delay calibration defaults to 400ms, and can be set from 0 to 2000ms, and is controlled from either the front panel menu or by using Maestro, ZeeVee's web-based management software.
Front LCD Menu Panel
A color LCD panel with navigation buttons lets you easily view device status, including IP address, data rate graph of encoded audio/video per channel, and configured RF and digital channels. You can also navigate the menu to view other details such as uptime, serial number, temp status, firmware version and firmware upgrade option (if connected to the internet).
