Almo to Offer ZeeVee Video Distribution Products
Almo Professional A/V announced a new distribution relationship with ZeeVee, developer of HD video distribution products. ZeeVee's ZvPro and ZvBox products are now available directly from Almo for HD video and other commercial digital signage applications.
"The ZeeVee team has found a way to enable affordable distribution of HD video and digital signage, and we are now able to pass along these benefits to our partners," said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V, in an statement. "The great pricing and simplicity of the products are enormous advantages, regardless of whether resellers and integrators are well-established in digital signage and HD video distribution or just getting started."
Almo now carries the ZvPro line of professional HD video distribution products, including the new ZVPro 280, an HD MPEG-2 encoder and a QAM modulator combined in one package. It distributes digital signage and HD video without the need for players at each display.
Based on the same technology used by TV stations and cable companies, Almo also offers ZeeVee's ZvBox, which turns the output of a VGA or an HD source into an HDTV cable channel and broadcasts it over coax cabling to all connected HDTVs. ZvBox connects to off-the-shelf HDTVs without additional decoder boxes at each TV, handles up to 135 simultaneous channels, and is easy to deploy and expand.
"We view Almo Professional A/V as an ideal business partner," said Dave Malin, ZeeVee's vice president of sales, in a statement. "The company has an outstanding dealer base that is very loyal, due in part to Almo's ongoing, substantial commitment to training."
Almo has added a ZeeVee training session to its Dec. 15 E4 AV training and networking tour in New York City.
