Expanding its ZyPer IP-based distribution platform, the new ZeeVee ZyPerUHD encoders and decoders deliver 4K, compressed video over standard 1G Ethernet switch, meaning that ZeeVe now offers both compressed and uncompressed options for delivering 4K over a standard switch.
The new ZyperUHD encoders and decoders provide ultra-low latency (less than 2 frames), compressed video up to Ultra-HD/4K resolution using an off-the-shelf 1Gb Ethernet switch, according to a ZeeVee press release. This makes it possible for businesses to deploy UHD throughout their facility and even interconnect campuses while leveraging their existing IP infrastructure.
ZeeVee says it’s the first company to offer a full line of AV over IP and AV over RF solutions.
ZeeVee ZyPerUHD Supports HDR
Indicating that its ZyPerUHD is capable of supporting HDR, ZeeVee claims it can address video walls up to 5×5 and is HDCP 2.2 compliant. It is compatible with ZeeVee’s MaestroZ Management Platform, making configuration simple and rapid, according to the press release.
More from ZeeVee’s ZyPerUHD press release:
The management platform allows for ZyPerUHD to network to a nearly unlimited number of sources and displays and offers an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) which allows for switching sources, and creating video walls. The ZyPerUHD followsZeeVee’s core belief that software applications driven over standards based Ethernet networks are the future of AV distribution, and offer far more capability and flexibility than proprietary and matrix switched hardware.
“Our IP portfolio provides Pro AV and network integrators with a full range of products that best fit their customers’ requirements allowing for greater flexibility and scalability,” says Joe Chordas, VP, sales, ZeeVee Inc. “We have been quick to respond to customers’ requests and have already begun to ship early units of ZyPerUHD to European customers, who have provided very positive feedback.”
