Entry-level ZvBox delivers amazing value
Share HD video sources over existing coax
ZvBox® 160 uses existing coaxial cabling so there’s no need to cut holes in walls or pull new cables, making it the perfect retrofit HD video distribution system. And future expansion is easy: when a new HDTV is connected to the coax, it will automatically have access to the Zv channel. Want to share more sources? Create an additional channel by adding another ZvBox 160!

Most times, all you need to do is set the channel that you will broadcast on. We have a really simple way for you to do that - a single button on the front combined with an LED. See our front button configuration page to learn more.
|If you want to get creative, ZvBox allows you to set channel names, customize idle screens with the customer's logos, and even change the 'heartbeat' watermark in the lower right corner with an image of your choosing. More advanced configuration is done by a software application running on your PC called ZvConfig. Your ZvBox is connected to your PC via USB. See the ZvConfig page to learn more.|
